Re: Just going to leave this here...

The new ccr2004 is not based on that same chips?

No, it is an Annapurna Labs (Amazon) AL32400 clocked at 1.7Ghz. This is a 64bit ARM processor.

The same processor is used in the existing CCR2004-1G-12S+2XS as well.

Re: Just going to leave this here...

I also found traces of Marvell Armada 7040 and Qualcomm IPQ5018 as well as 6018 chipset support, which do not align with any current products
Well it turns out the Armada 7040 based product is the RB5009.

I agree that two SFP slots would be more useful for some scenarios, instead of the 2.5GbE.
They can easily add an additional SFP+ with the Marvell 88F8125.

There are a LOT of options... Traco, Meanwell, Delta are quite common and you can buy din-mount so you could for example have a AC-DC 48volt PSU mounted beside a 48volt to 24volt DC-DC converter for a tidy setup that will be feed the NetPower with multiple voltages.

Re: Cap AC, Hap AC2 or UniFi?

The cAP ac and hAP ac2 are beasts from a processing perspective, but their RF performance leaves a LOT to be desired.

With a cAP ac in a 3 bedroom townhouse with wooden walls, I can barely use 5Ghz in the room next to the cAP ac

Re: LLDP

Please clarify "not doing anything"? LLDP initial support was added in 2016-Sep-30 RouterOS is still missing LLDP-MED which allows the router/switch to signal to VoIP phones which vlan they need to use. This is one of the main reasons for using LLDP, and is a standard feature on switches.
