Re: x86 or CCR for 10Gbps

With regard to CPU, CCR1072-1G-8S+ has 72 core cpu. 1 GHz x 72 = 72 GHz So this would basically work better. CCRC1072 can handle the task of 10G Easily. Unsure what you wanted to say with your comment on this thread 2 years later. But the info contained in your comment is inherently wrong too. Mhz ...

Re: MUM Indonesia live! (Biggest MUM ever)

We streamed Turkey MUM in full quality 1080p at 20Mbit.
Indonesia does not have such good internet connection, so we had to lower the bandwidth and resolution

Here is the Turkey live stream copy: https://youtu.be/yA77-M0FiC0

Re: CRS Pass packet to CPU

To put a port in switch mode you have to define a Master port and set the rest of the ports as a slave port to it. When you don't add the slave configuration to the port it's automatically a 'CPU' port.

Is that what you mean?

Have you tried using a 40Mhz channel instead of only 20Mhz? That could easily double your performance and provide what you are used to.

The RB751 you used is dual-chain and could have given you 300Mbps maybe? Anyway, especially with one chain 20Mhz or 40Mhz can certainly make a difference.

From experience with a CRS125 and RB2011 it can handle 200Mbps to 250Mbps of throughput, but not with a too complex rules set in it. So if your configuration is not that tough, sure, it should be a good fit.

If you do wish to a bit more CPU heavy things (VPN's, etc.) then no, it cannot handle this.

Re: 802.11ac questions

I just had a couple quick questions about 802.11ac and Mikrotik. 1. It looks like Mikrotik is using the Qualcomm QCA9882 chips for 802.11ac support. Over here --> https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Qualcomm_Atheros they are said to support 802.11a/b/g/n as well. Is this true? The routerboard.com site makes ...

Why can't you take them with you? You can just send it to yourself in a package? It will cost you a bit, but certainly less then selling it below costs.

Re: BaseBox 2, then adding 5.8

The R11e-5HacD gives you 802.11ac which is inherently compatible with 802.11a, 802.11n (on 5Ghz) and 802.11ac. For an antenna you can use any 5Ghz antenna you would like. You just need the right pigtails (which you seem to have) and then find a RP-SMA antenna for 5Ghz. Either with or without a cable...

Re: RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN Wireless Throughput

In theory you should be able to achieve around 20MB/sec. This had to do with Wireless being half-duplex, it still needs to send ACK's and such so the effective link speed will be around ~60% of the effective link speed. There is a LOT of overhead, much more then on cabled connections. All the links ...

The best idea is to make a good plan and use more low-power access-points instead of several high-power access-points.

I have not yet tried with routing, but NAT it seems capable of doing at least 2Gbit sustained without too much trouble. Maybe 35% CPU utilization. I do not have the equipment to test more. But if it can do NAT at those speeds I would expect it to be quite capable in routing only!
