RB411 specs released

Fri Dec 28, 2007 2:23 am

Mikrotik announced the specifications for the RB411 to distributors today. I can't wait to get my hands on these babies. Same size, standoffs, and price as the RB133c but with MUCH more power.

It's for client...no need for that speed usually.

That's why I'm impressed.. This $59 CPE has some power behind it..

Just because it's intended for CPE doesn't mean it should be underpowered..

Not all access points need to support 100 cpe. With a level4 license this would make a nice microPOP AP.

Also good for low cost PtP links.

Early shipments come with level 4. Later volume production level 3.

The down side is that it is a new processor and so only version 3 support and probably comes with bugs.

The RB411 appears to have a wireless radio built into it although the components aren't populated on the board at this time. I'm guessing the RB411R has the built in radio card. I'm not sure if we'll ever see the RB411R though since they announced the crossroads board yesterday which has a built in radio too..

Yes, but the Crossroads only has 2.4 GHz on it. Having 5 GHz onboard COULD be an interesting option sometimes. We'll see... ;-)

I see from the routerboard website that a couple of these should outperform both the old RB532 and also the RB333. Test sheet does say tests performed through ethernet but RB411 only has 1 ethernet port so not sure how they verified this. Has anyone compared a couple of cheap RB411's with the old "high performance" RB333's?

A base 411 with the introductory level 4 license is just about the ultimate in current MT backhaul radios IMHO. I'm not sure you are going to go any faster with a more expensive RB so long as you are only using one radio card.

One card, one box, super low price. XR5s run great on a 411. It will max out a Turbo channel at 75Mb +/- (if you are lucky enough to find the free spectum to run Turbo).

We have excellent results using routing with conn track turned off. Very pleased with the first batch, another sixty-five are on the way.

Exactly what I was thinking as the RB600's are huge especially when compared to the 411's. With NStreme enabled, what sort of real word figures are people seeing and does the extra memory in the 411a make a difference?

I asked Janis Megis that question a few days ago at Chicago MUM and he said that they tested it using "router on a stick" which means vlans terminating on a single port.

A very efficient way to operate, we break out VLANs into 24 port managed switches quite often. It would be even nicer if the 433AH had gig ports intead of 10/100, but I suppose that would eat into sales of the RB1000.
