At A Glance: OpenWrt
Operating systems are responsible for the management of computer software and hardware resources, while at the same time supplying services for other applications and software to use. There are many operating systems on the market, including popular examples Windows and OS X for general and multipurpose computers and workstations, as well as Android and BlackBerry OS for mobile devices. There also exists a class of operating systems for highly specialized, embedded systems. Embedded systems are found in a variety of setups that don’t require general functionality or need to operate in harsh environments. OpenWrt is one choice for an embedded system, designed primarily to route network traffic and based on the Linux kernel. If your business or project implements an embedded system that requires an operating system, OpenWrt is a powerful solution.
OpenWrt specialists are familiar with working on both the Linux kernel and OpenWrt. As OpenWrt is highly useful for smartphones, routers, and pocket computers, an experienced specialist will have general experience when it comes to working directly with those types of hardware. OpenWrt specialists are highly computer literate and often have some programming and other software skills. Hiring a freelance OpenWrt specialist who is on Upwork allows you to select the professional with the specific set of skills and experience to help you leverage the power of OpenWrt. If your project or business is creating, troubleshooting, or modifying an embedded system running OpenWrt, a specialist is a powerful and cost-effective tool to help achieve your goals.
