EasyTomato was born out of the experiences of Relief Labs team members in post-earthquake Haiti. We saw firsthand how excessive, uncontrolled use of low-bandwidth connections impeded vital operations at disaster relief sites and hospitals.
EasyTomato provides a simple, low-cost solution to this problem. Using a drag-and-drop interface, network managers can quickly set up internet access rules to govern bandwidth consumption at specific times of day. EasyTomato is easy for anyone set up and use, requires virtually no training, and comes with extensive documentation written for the nonspecialist user.
Easy Tomato was built off of a Toastman build of TomatoUSB, which is in turn a modified version of Jonathan Zarate’s excellent OpenSource Tomato firmware. Relief Labs has worked to make this powerful firmware accessible to everyone.
