A tailor-made private wireless network that meets your needs

By installing the QWA-AC2600 and WirelessAP Station app, your NAS will evolve into a high-performance wireless access point that can be connected to from multiple devices. The QWA-AC2600 can also be used to extend your wireless network coverage. Combined with useful features (including DHCP and NAT) provided by the Network and Virtual Switch app, the QWA-AC2600 can be used for a variety of applications, delivering private, fast, low-latency and secure connectivity across your home and/or workplace. (WirelessAP Station requires Container Station to be installed on your QNAP NAS.)
Boost your Wi-Fi coverage
Deploy your QNAP NAS as a wireless access point to improve coverage. With the QWA-AC2600 and the WirelessAP Station app, your NAS is transformed into a high-performance wireless access point. Just place the NAS in a more centralized location and it will help lengthen the reach of your existing Wi-Fi network and eliminate potential dead zones. alt
Directly access your NAS
With the QWA-AC2600 and the WirelessAP Station app, your NAS can perform as a high-performance wireless access point that can be accessed by multiple devices. Your devices can directly access data stored on the NAS and in bypassing the router, access speeds to the network will not be affected. alt

Upgrade your network to 10GbE with QNAP's fast and affordable 10GbE Switch

QNAP 10GbE/NBASE-T™ unmanaged switches allow you to instantly upgrade your network environment at a cost-effective price. With a 10GbE network you can enjoy blazing-fast transfer speeds, empower bandwidth-demanding tasks like virtualization, and enable simultaneous real-time access to large NAS-based files using multiple workstations (ideal for video editing and multimedia). QNAP also provides a 10GbE PCIe network expansion card for the TS-251B and Windows®/Linux® PCs to take advantage of high-speed LAN environments.alt

Real-time 4K video transcoding

Featuring advanced Intel® HD Graphics, the TS-251B supports dual-channel 4K H.264 hardware decoding and real-time transcoding, allowing you to convert videos to universal file formats that can be smoothly played across various devices*. You can also watch high-quality 4K@30FPS media files on a HDTV using the HDMI output or use with Plex® Media Server to stream media files to mobile devices and media streaming devices (including DLNA®, Roku®, Apple TV®, Amazon Fire TV® and Chromecast™). The QNAP RM-IR004 remote control (sold separately) can be configured using QButton to customize the actions of individual buttons, providing a more convenient NAS experience.
*The TS-251B’s hardware provides H.264 hardware decoding, encoding and transcoding capabilities. However, playback quality may vary due to factors including playback software, file formats, system usage, and available bandwidth.alt

Multiple ways to enjoy your multimedia

QNAP provides a wide range of multimedia applications for you to easily enjoy photos, music, and videos.

alt Cinema28 allows for single-interface management of all your media files and can stream files to every connected device throughout your home.
alt QVHelper allows users to stream media files or music playlists from a QNAP NAS to VLC player.
alt Qmedia allows music, photos and videos to be effortlessly streamed to Android TVs or set-top boxes.
alt Video HD is a free KODI add-on that combines KODI's streaming and video decoding capabilities and fully supports Video Station's features.

Protect important data with snapshots

Snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. If files are accidentally deleted or modified or the system is afflicted by ransomware, you can use snapshots to quickly restore files to a previously-recorded state. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record the changed data. Not only does this save storage space but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data. The TS-251B supports up to 1,024 snapshots per NAS and up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN.alt

{2jtab:Features}

Consolidated notifications and extra NAS security

QTS 4.3.5 provides various mechanisms to ensure the data saved on your TS-251B is carefully safeguarded, including the brand-new Notification Center that consolidates system logs and notifications into a single app and the Security Counselor that checks for weaknesses and offers helpful security recommendations.

r Notification Center
Consolidates system logs and notifications for all NAS apps into a single app with flexible rule settings, facilitating smooth and easy NAS management.
alt Security Counselor
Checks for weaknesses and offers recommendations to enhance NAS security. Anti-virus and anti-malware software is also integrated within Security Counselor to ensure the complete protection of your NAS and data.

Automate everyday tasks with IFTTT Agent

QNAP IFTTT Agent integrates the popular web automation service IFTTT (If This Then That), allowing you to create a near-unlimited number of automated workflows. Simply connect your IFTTT account with your TS-251B and set triggers and actions. For example, if you set a trigger as “Any new photo on the phone” and the action as "Upload the photo to QNAP NAS," then all the photos taken using your phone will be automatically uploaded to TS-251B. qnp ifttt
