UDP relay over WAN

RoWAN relays video streams from both local and remote sources to local multicast/unicast destinations. RoWAN is a server that enables a video stream to cross over WAN, from a remote network to the site closest to consumers. RoWAN is currently a beta.


  • UDP/UDP: UDP-to-UDP tasks, where either side could be unicast or multicast;
  • HTTP/UDP: source is obtained via an HTTP request, destination is UDP;
  • Remote mluticast: subscribe to a multicast group on a remote site as if it were local;
  • Daisy-chain UDP: trigger a remote instance to relay a stream to local instance;
  • Dynamic tasking: submit/manage ad-hoc redirection tasks (over HTTP) or use a static list.
  • Web-enabled: web-based control and display of status and traffic statistics;
  • Resource-efficient: runs on devices with limited resources (RAM, CPU);

Supported OS/distros:

FreeBSD: 10-11, Linux: CentOS 6-7, Debian 7-8-9, Ubuntu 12.04-14.04-16.04 LTS.

Hardware requirements:

Any x86-64 hardware running a supported Linux distro or FreeBSD. Minimum: 256 Mb of RAM. An x86-64 compatible CPU.
