Thanks all for your help...You could get them even from eBay.They should be very common...Where can I buy those 1u cable organisers on the side of the rack? They look handy.
Look carefully at the CCR screenswhat are you talking about?Isn't it a bad practice to use IPs like 111.11.0.x?
802.11ax is not even developed yet, only a suggestion of future plans. There is currently not even a draft of this standard. So we don't have any plans for it yet.totally great pictures tnx.
thats lightly off-topic, but about 802.11ac testing - any plans/considerations for 802.11ax adoption, which still over horizon, yet, but had to hit market soon, too ?
despite all irony, MikroTik team had quite SERIOUS influence among networking guys, just like CISCO and Juniper had, for example.So then MikroTik should write the Draft !!!
it depends on ambient temperature, especially for CCR devices. Anyway, test devices are usually left running for long periods of time at full tiltHow many watts total would they all use if you pushed all those routerboards to the limit and how long can they withstand before having to reboot or hang?
I have read projects where mikrotik routerboards are used for remote monitoring of wild life and weather. Even though they were only used in communication i figured that since the hardware routerboards use and the hardware used by controller boards were similar that if routerOS had extra functionality it would reduce the cost of the project and make it even more fun to try out more things. I think metarouter already can help with that but multicore routerboards lack metarouter currently.I'd prefer my routers to just route.running a webserver
I do not agree that: external PSU = cheap equipment...quite a lot (cheaper ones for sure) comes with external power supply. Kind of shame for the brand, since there are a lot of place inside most 19"-width devices, and external power supplies are looking cheaper than built-in.
The more I implement Mikrotik's devices around for my clients the more I tired to tell people that it is not necessary bad to have power supply outside the device. What's worst, personally I love built-in ones as it is one piece of equipment and not two as routerboard with external china-style power supply.
So far I've never used MT devices in huge installations so PoE would have any reasons to be implemented, while PoE switches are rare over generic server rooms. PoE switches are expensive and have fans so there should be extra reason to get it instead of non-PoE.D. PoE gives you unbeatable flexibility over installation as you do not need power socket "somwhere near".
A. You always need power socket...what is the difference between PLUG or PSU to be inserted ? BTW small external PSU is easy to be replaced."we need some power outlet to connect external power supply" problem.D. PoE gives you unbeatable flexibility over installation as you do not need power socket "somewhere near".
One difference is that a power supply sometimes takes more than one position in a power rail.A. You always need power socket...what is the difference between PLUG or PSU to be inserted ?
No, you're missing the point. Not choosing external PSU of this or another shape of look, but to get rid of the external one completely.It is problem of choosing PSU which better fits your needs:
Just a quick question: how can you feed 8-30V Passive PoE with "real" 48V PoE switch? Or I need to install another device to supply power to router?If the only problem is PSU size or shape then just use other one or PoE. You always need one or two power sockets.
As you seen in previous posts there are many solutions for powering rack devices.
You have inspired me. Recycling, or second life for old cablesSuch switch is nice. But it reduces your connection variability that is necessary in lab and consumes electricity itself too. If you have all devices right nearby you can use this for powering them: http://m.ebay.com/itm/261523601036
Quite a nice approach if you care for home or really small office network. As your net go mature, you'll get yet another point of failure on each and every PSU under your hand.I am happy of that. I am not even throwing the faulty power adapters as they very likely stopped working by the end capacitor problem. Just swapping for some other capacitor taken from other things that are not working anymore is enough to bring it to life. Sure the voltage and capacity has to be at least the same, better bigger a bit. When it is irreparable I am keeping the wires too.
