Pakedge Now Offers Its K61-A and K61U-A Gateway Appliances With Six Pre-Configured VLANs, TruStream™ Streaming Media Optimization and Additional Feature

Designed to work as fully-integrated wired networking solutions

Foster City, CA - Pakedge Device & Software has just launched the K61-A and K61U-A Gateway Appliances, bringing top-quality, enterprise-level media streaming to businesses and smart homes alike.

Designed to work as fully-integrated wired networking solutions, the K61-A and K61U-A provide a host of cutting-edge features, including six pre-configured VLANs, Pakedge BakPak™ monitoring, exclusive TruStream™ technology for superior performance, and much more.

The K61U-A includes all the features of the K61-A, with the addition of Pakedge's Unified Threat Management (UTM) network security. UTM provides parental controls and high security by blocking viruses, questionable websites, and other unwanted content before it can get past the firewall.

Designed to take the difficulty out of setting up a network, both models feature six pre-configured VLANs. VLANs (short for virtual local area networks) are communication lines that facilitate network segmenting, prioritize bandwidth, and achieve optimum performance from even high-data throughput devices including high-definition IP cameras, streaming audio/video components, game systems, and other clients.

The K61-A and K61U-A incorporate Pakedge TruStream technology to recognize and categorize network traffic, ensuring that high-priority data like streaming video, music, and VoIP are given precedence. TruStream eliminates the interference and high latency that result in buffering, lag, or even complete interruption of streaming playback.

The K61-A and K61U-A are both designed to operate in conjunction with BakPak cloud management, letting dealers monitor and power cycle select devices on the network. Dealers will also be able to control the system-wide network and receive automatic notifications via text messages, phone calls, or apps.

The K61-A and K61U-A are also certified to meet Pakedge CASC standards, allowing them to receive commands from networked remotes and touch panels. This allows a seamless integration of both control and power-cycling to give users exactly what they want.

The K61-A and K61U-A utilizes Pakedge Network Bonding, ensuring playback and visibility of any device, anywhere on the network-even across VLANs. This ensures quality playback from any device, anywhere on a network. Like all other Pakedge products, the K61-A and K61U-A are designed for ease of installation and enterprise-quality reliability.
