Integrate THREAD into IoT Devices

The GL-S200 Gateway offers a convenient way to integrate the THREAD protocol into IoT devices. It offers an optional pre-configured THREAD Development Board that enables data transfer with the gateway's THREAD protocol via UART, SPI, and I2C integration with IoT end devices. Additionally, an optional testing module is also available, it includes a variety of sensors and control interfaces, such as push & turn dial, RGB light, PIR, Humidity, Temperature, and atmospheric pressure.

THREAD Topology Interface

The GL-S200 Admin Panel provides a user-friendly topology interface for users to maintain an organized and manageable overview of their complex IoT networks.

THREAD & BLE Dual-protocol

The GL-S200 THREAD Border Router is capable of running both THREAD and BLE protocols simultaneously. THREAD protocol is optimal under high density networks while avoiding network congestion, and BLE is capable of connecting to devices at greater distances, effectively providing users with the flexibility to connect to a wide range of devices.

Minimal Latency Pathfinding Coordination

GL-S200 supports both device-to-device and device-to-cloud connectivity. Its THREAD protocol allows the deployment of multiple THREAD Border Routers and seeks the most efficient path using the fewest nodes for connecting to the Internet. It uses multiple border routers simultaneously to reduce the latency of large IoT networks. IoT devices within the network will automatically seek the router with the lowest latency for connecting to external networks.

Secure Your Smart Home and IoT Devices

GL-S200 supports THREAD and BLE protocols, it is designed to maintain multiple protocols connection at the same time, and the device is compatible with most smart home IoT devices. All THREAD networks supports Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption and phone authentication to provide multi-layers of security for the connected devices.

GL.iNet's 4G IoT gateways come with GoodCloud, our remote device management platform providing remote monitoring, batch configuration, and network traffic analytics. A centralized platform simplifies device management, increases the flexibility for network expansion and creates a complete IoT network oversight.

The Future-proof Smart Home Gateway for Home Automation

Built-in Security

GL-S200 supports AES encryption and phone authentication to build a secure access control network for smart homes and smart buildings.

Low Energy Footprint

Built on the power-efficient IEEE 802.15.4 MAC/PHY to connect an ecosystem of low power products to each other, ideal for lighting control, energy management, smart home appliances control etc.

Open IPv6-based Protocol

IPv6 features auto-configuration and multicasting which allows one-to-many communication between devices. It runs on end-to-end encryption to offer powerful network security.

Runs on OpenWrt 21.02 (Kernel version 5.4)

GL-S200 runs on GL.iNet's proprietary firmware based on OpenWrt, presenting a user-friendly interface to set up THREAD networks and offers an extensive degree of customization, with users being able to choose from OpenWrt's 5000+ open-source ready-made plug-ins.

DNS over TLS & DNS over HTTPS

GL-S200 supports both DNS over TLS and DNS over HTTPS to enhance network privacy and security, providing users with the flexibility to choose between encryption depending on the network type. DNS over TLS uses encryption to secure DNS communications, while DNS over HTTPS uses the HTTPS protocol for an additional layer of security.


GL-S200 is pre-installed with OpenVPN and WireGuard® supporting 30+ VPN services. It automatically encrypts all network traffic within the connected network, including smart home devices that are not capable of running VPN encryption independently.
