Topic: soho router to use with openwrt for a small ISP

The content of this topic has been archived on 18 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.


I'm in the process of starting a small ISP and I see the benefit in using a managed router for our customers.  It would allow us a lot of flexibility to help customers when they call in for issues. 

I've dabbled a bit with openwrt, but I'm far from an expert... so I'm looking to see if openwrt would work in this situation.

My (semi flexible) requirements are:

- Easily sourced robust router
- relatively affordable to buy in 25-100 unit batches
- has VOIP / rj-11 jacks for phones
- supports TR-069

Is openwrt a viable solution? 

So far there isn't a ton of options in this area, but one suggested option was the Cambium R200

Have you tried wiki's table of hardware both at OpenWrt and LEDE Project wikis? Quite a few people poured their soul and sweat into it, it might have information you're looking for.
