Re: IMPROVEMENTS IN MIKROTIK ROUTERS MUST HAVE 2018/19

Some providers are already giving you 10G broadband for $50 per month (including 250+ TV channels and free domestic calls).

So 7G as the top consumer router shifted from being too much to not enough.

And it still needs at least two 10G ports.

Re: MUM Europe 2018 - New hardware incoming

The chipset has been discontinued, linux dropped support for it, and the new RB4011 pulls down full BGP feeds faster than a CCR1072. It's time for something new in the 1036/1072 range.
Tile is still on Mellanox's product pages and it can be reinstated in Linux if someone wants to support it.

There's still not quick (or slow) way of seeing which port are all devices connected to.

If a port is in a bridge, the latter is shown in the ARP table. It also does not show the DHCP name, just the IP address.

Already one NVMe M.2 can saturate 40GbE.

SATA drives are too slow.

SSDs are too expensive.

Looks like SATA 3.5" + NVMe caching will have to do for a small NAS.

It would not be a 4011 if it routed at 10Gbps, so it would not cost as much as a CCR.

But I am not interested in a 10GbE NAS anymore.

Looks like time for a CRS405-1G-4Q+IN

Or CRS405-1C+-4Q+IN

The ideal device would be CRS407-1G-2C+-4Q+IN

128MB storage and 2+Gbps routing with 25 IP rules, of course.

It would probably have to route quite faster if it costs more than $200.
