Re: Looking for Single Radio with SFP Cage

That is nice. Thanks for the link.

Don't need the ports of the 2011. In some situations we don't need any Ethernet, just a 2.4GHz radio and SFP. Others, 1 Ethernet, 1 SFP and 1 radio.

On all of these, mPCI is preferable to onboard radio.

Looking for Single Radio with SFP Cage

We are looking for something like an RB411AH or an RB911 with an SFP cage instead of or in addition to Ethernet port. Looking to be able to do fiber to the radio in backhaul applications and or fiber to the home with WiFi in the house.

Any such items in the Mikrotik desing queue?
