CRS354 as router?

Mon Nov 16, 2020 5:50 pm

Hi everybody,

As an amateur in this field, I am asking the following question: can CRS354-48P-4S+2Q+RM be used as a router, not only smart switch, if configured properly?
There is a place where I have a network with 30-40 FTP cables, and instead of using router + switch, I want to combine everything in one device.

CRS can route but at low capacity. Check official product page, it includes official test results (mind that published numbers are pretty high, in real-life achieved throughputs are from lower right part of that table) and compare those to results of decent routers (e.g. CCR line).
