CCR1016-12S-1S+ but with 2 x SFP+?

Mon Mar 14, 2016 12:36 pm

Anyone know if there will be a Cloud Core with 2 x SFP+ and 12/24 SFP ports available soon? I would like to deploy these but would like to have redundancy on the 10G up-links.

As far as I know, that is not possible, because Tile-GX 16 and 36 only have four XAUI interfaces available on their mPIPE engine, each of them can either be used for 1x 10G, or 4x 1G interfaces, so the most you can get out of those are 2x 10G and 8x1G if you want 10G uplink redundancy. Incidentally, there's a CCR1036 that fits this specification, but it does not offer 1G SFP ports. The TileGX 72 (eg. in CCR1072) has eight XAUI interfaces and would theoretically be able to accommodate your wishes, but of course would be way more expensive. I would appreciate a CCR1072 with 4x10G SFP+ and 16x 1G SFP or alternatively 2/3x10G SFP+ and 24/32x SFP as well, but I don't think Mikrotik has any plans in that direction.

Thanks for the detailed information. I used the 1016 as an example of the SFP only platform. I see the current SFP model I mentioned comes with dual power supply, so I hope they will look at expanding this platform on to the 36Core CPU with 2 x SFP+ ports and 24 x SFP!

It would be a real win for POP deployments.
