RB5011

Thu Aug 15, 2019 11:24 am

Let's talk about a successor of the RB4011(+WiFi)

- The AL21400 chipset is powerful. You can actually keep it. Perhaps there's a new hardware revision available with higher clock and/or less power.
- passive cooling: keep it.
- ports: I like the SFP+, but would it possible to add a RJ45 port with "Multi-Gig" 1/2.5/5 Gbit/s capabilities with support of 802.3at/802.3bt or passive PoE for powering it?
- Wireless LAN: Well, Reinis is currently working on MU-MIMO support. If he adds Uplink MU-MIMO aswell we have the first step done for IEEE 802.11ax support.
- antennas: 8x for 5 GHz, 4x for 2,4 GHz, as this makes sense with MU-MIMO
- 802.11ax + Tri-Radio support: You can either use 1x 5GHz with all your 8 antennas or alternatively split 5 GHz in two parts so you can use lower frequencies with 4 antennas on 5 GHz block A and the other 4 antennas on 5 GHz block B.
- OFDMA is great but needs time to implement. So support it in a future release
- pricing: 349$

make it more about proper implementation of existing features that needs to be fixed in hardware:
  • SFP+ slot that's not picky and supports SFP/SFP+/passive DAC/GPON modules without any issues
  • Switch chip that supports at least 8 ports at 0.01/0.1/1/2.5/5Gbit/s with hardware VLAN filtering and other features you would expect from $300+ router
  • Extra miniPCI-E x1 slot for modems,LoRA,etc.
  • USB ports, CPU have quite a few of them, so let's have some available to user
  • metal (alu) case, that spreads the heat from cpu and SFP+ cage. For $300+ I'd expect metal case with proper heat dissipation design, not some overheating cheap plastic box
  • 802.11ax would be nice, but based on current state of WAVE2/MU-MIMO, ax will be realistically fully working on Mikrotik somewhere around year 2021/2022, even if hardware is available today...
  • One could dream: all features actually working on a first day of sale

As a software developer I would rather prefer continuous delivery of new features. Let Mikrotik focus on rock-solid basic feature sets and enabling step by step more sophisticated features.

And please, bring back the variants with touch LCD displays (yes, I actually use the LCD).
I avoid upgrading all my 3011s just because there is nothing newer with LCD.
