Product’s Description

Roqos Core has the highest processing power, the largest memory and storage among home Wi-Fi VPN routers to provide enterprise grade cybersecurity and parental controls. As a highly advanced router, it runs open source software such as Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) with Deep Packet Inspection technology to protect your home from harmful Internet content. It is managed by Roqos App even when you’re away from home. Unlike other routers with many flickering lights which are hard to understand, Roqos Core has lighted logo that changes color based on its state. In addition, it is smart enough to dim the light at night.


Setting up Roqos Core takes about two minutes and only requires the Roqos app. If you have a cable modem from your ISP, simply connect the Roqos Core to the modem. If you have a router/modem combo like in Verizon FIOS service, you can connect Roqos Core to one of the switch/LAN ports on the router/modem. You need to disable Wi-Fi in your old router since Roqos Core needs to see Internet traffic from all of your devices.

Roqos Core is always connected to the Roqos Cloud, which alerts you for events and alarms through app notifications or email. Roqos Cloud also automatically updates your Roqos Core with cybersecurity and parental control signatures to protect you from the latest attacks. Roqos Core is designed to be scalable for future growth, redundant for failures and reliable for data losses. Your privacy is important to us. Usage data is not stored in the Roqos Cloud or sold to third parties.

Compared to other solutions in the market, Roqos Core is always in between your devices and the internet. It constantly examines the traffic and looks for ransomware, malware, viruses, and DDOS attacks as well as protects your kids from inappropriate content right at the source.



Roqos Core with four 64-bit 2 GHz cores, 2GB memory, and 8GB storage provides high speed Internet access while protecting you from harmful content.
