Re: Is the RB3011 a good fit?

Well, I would forget about the 3011, and would get a 4011. Much more CPU power, and just US$ 20,00 more. The 3011 should work, but for a little more money You can get something much better.
totally agree

RB3011 had his moment, today the better choice is RB4011

LtAP mini is already a small device, don't expect to see a smaller device with serial port

LtAP looks to be a rough device better suited to field usage

No way CCR can do that

Not because the switch, because the processing load on routers
