Turbocharged Processors

High-performance networking starts at the core. Every Pakedge router is built with advanced processors designed specifically to handle high-bandwidth, low-latency multimedia traffic. From single processors to dual-core designs capable of gigabit throughputs, Pakedge routers represent the gold standard in high-performance AV networking.

Designed for A/V

Pakedge routers are engineered to handle high-bandwidth multicast audio/video media in commercial and residential environments. Running on high-performance processors, Pakedge routers ensure that anything you throw at it—whether it is high-resolution audio, UHD video, or everything in between—we've got you covered.

Pakedge Zones™

Pakedge Zones™ are pre-configured VLANs (virtual local area networks) that separate network traffic into six easily identifiable zones: management, voice, audio/video, automation, data, and guest. Each zone (type of network traffic) is given its own “lane” and level of priority, ensuring that latency-sensitive traffic—such as streaming media and VoIP—is prioritized above less-sensitive traffic for optimal performance.

Zone Bonding for Multicast Routing

Pakedge routers incorporate Pakedge Zone Bonding, simplified multicast routing that allows smart devices that utilize multicast traffic, such as smartphones, security cameras, and video streaming, to communicate across Pakedge Zones (VLANs). By enabling Zone Bonding, you get the benefits of traffic segmentation while minimizing the complexity of configuring multicast routing.

Intelligent Traffic Management

For ultimate flexibility and control, Pakedge routers incorporate advanced traffic management and user-defined traffic rules. For example, quality of service (QoS) allows traffic from high-priority devices to be given precedence over less-critical network traffic when traveling across the network and to the Internet.

Secure Networking

Pakedge routers offer multiple layers of security to keep intruders out and your smart home secure. Pakedge delivers an embedded firewall that supports stateful packet inspection (SPI), parental controls with device and website access control, secure remote access with OpenVPN and Pakedge DDNS, and a secure guest network to keep your internal network secure and limit network access for visitors.

Intuitive GUI

Pakedge delivers a simple, unified user interface across the Pakedge product line that provides easy access to key features, consistent use of Pakedge features such as Pakedge Zones across all categories, and an intuitive dashboard to get your network up and running quickly.

Remote Cloud Management

With BakPak Cloud Management, you can remotely manage, monitor, and troubleshoot the network and any connected network device all from a single dashboard. The RK-1 router hosts the full suite of BakPak features, allowing integrators to remotely manage the entire network, big or small. The WR-1 Wireless Router with BakPak Lite delivers remote management of the WR-1 for small homes.

A/V Aesthetics

A truly luxurious home deserves the look and feel of devices designed from the ground-up with class in mind. Elegant design, high-quality materials, and cool blue LEDs give Pakedge Routers a high-end A/V look and feel. Because of this focus on design, Pakedge Routers fit perfectly alongside any A/V equipment in a rack.

Router Series

  • Advanced Routing
  • High Performance
  • Large/Complex Residential

The feature-rich RK-1 unlocks the power of AV networks with a specially designed dual-core processor. Designed for 1 Gbps LAN – WAN traffic throughput, and built for high-performance AV networking, RK series routers are ideal for medium to large networks with multiple types of devices and access to high-speed internet connections. Built for ease of use with a simple GUI, the RK-Series makes no compromises while ensuring a simple, problem-free setup.

Thanks to the addition of BakPak integrators can remotely monitor, configure, and manage entire connected environments. Rather than logging into countless devices to perform more tedious tasks, you can streamline and finish configuring and deploying systems all from one dynamic interface.

Log in directly from BakPak to configure and manage devices without keeping track of a list of IP addresses or doing any port forwarding. With the new Control4 integration, you can even monitor ZigBee and Z-Wave home automation devices.
