RouterBOARD naming

Thu Jul 11, 2013 3:37 pm

Since there have been many questions before, and our product names are getting longer and longer, we decided to make a document explaining all the numbers and letters in product names. They are not random at all :)

I think you need to make it mandatory for the training materials. If you are certified you must know products!!

Re: RouterBOARD naming

I just bought some RBSXTG-5HPnD-HGr2, guess that r2 means v2.0 of the same board?

The reported board in routeros however is RB SXT G-5HPnD r2 the same as the -SAr2 (built-in 90 Sector antenna)

Guess this mean that both SXT use the same board, inside two different enclosures with different built-in antenna?

If so, will a future Mikrotik ROS update change the firmware board-name to correctly reflect this to be able to remotely distinguish between the unconfigured sectors/PTP when in neighbour view? This is a very typical new node situation, 4 sectors and a PTP)

interesting. How would mikrotik name a CCR with 100 cores assuming mikrotik produces one in the future. TileGX have 100 core variants.

it would be something along these lines - CCR1100

the rest would be just how many interfaces it has. Here, the example with a lot of Gbit interfaces

CCR1100-9001G

OVER 9000??!?!?! :P


I'm excited just to see CCR1072 + ROS7 to begin with :)

I'd imagine next major CCR revision would be CCR2X., so a 36 core would be CCR2036-[int. details]

The naming scheme is actually quite easy to understand and very helpful once you spend some time understanding it :)

Isn't there any letter to distinguish between passive PoE and 802.3af, at ?

If I get it right, i, P refer to Mikrotik proprietary "controller" mechanism...?

no, "i" means injector (PoE out on one port), "P" means power (PoE out on more ports)

Re: RouterBOARD naming

Wed Mar 18, 2015 6:14 pm

So, I log into my remote unit, a "RB911G-5HPnD" and am wondering what we ever placed there it is I am logging into? Was it a Sextant? Or was it a board in a box with one or two attached antennas? Never kept a record, I should.....

SXT has SXT in their name.
QRT has QRT in its name.
Groove is also clear about it.
OmniTik says it all.
But during implementing the SEXTANT line something is forgotten I presume? Can still still be corrected. Both at clients and some backhauls we used both SEXTANT or same boards in boxes with other make antennas.
To know now what exactly we'd used I have to drive over..... pffff.

Or is there any other way I can distinguish a SEXTANT from a similar board sold 'stand alone'?
Show your appreciation of this post by giving me Karma! Thanks.

SXT, QRT and Groove have specific PCB board. The SEXTANT has identical board with generic RB911. Software has no way to know if there is a box around or not.

Product like this exist only in one ethernet row - RB3011.
RB3011 is:
- big
- robust
- metal case
- dual core
- with display
- expansion slot
- 10x 10/100/1000
- 1x SFP
- USB 3.0
- relatively expensive

I talk/write about a:
- small/compact size
- plastic case
- single core (same Hap Ac)
- no display
- no expansion slot
- 8-10x 10/100 or 4-5x 10/100 and 4-5x 10/100/1000
- 0x SFP
- USB 2.0
- cheap

Amlost :-)
But I think smaller and low weight one. Without display, maybe plastic case, under each other the 2x 4/5 ethernet ports.
Yes, I understand you, but ... It's a wish/desire :-)

If this is the case already. Do you plan to make a "bigger" RB2011/RB3011 series with three group of 5-port Ethernet switch. For SoHo environment would be great :-)

Cosmetic suggestion about naming: on https://mikrotik.com/download page, please replace "hEX" with "hEX (except RB750Gr3)" or kind of =)

as i remember Janis' ending lines to the device itself, he was mentioning 2.5G/5G/10G there as the new way Mikrotik is following - maybe was just a freudian slip - this was the base of my speculation.

Why RB750G is not named RB750UG. The same about RB760iGS not being RB760UiGS? This naming scheme looks really inconsistent in practice :/ CRS and CCR naming schemes seem to be much more consistent. Also why those are not x2? They have 2 cores after all...

Read carefully. USB is only indicated on non Gigabit devices, because Gigabit devices automatically imply USB (if two models exist, where one is non-gigabit, one is gigabit).

G - Gigabit (may include "U")

-<n>P+ number of 2.5G Ethernet ports with PoE-out
-<n>C+ number of combo 10G Ethernet/SFP+ ports
-<n>S+ number of 10G SFP+ ports

-<n>XS number of 25G SFP+ ports

-<n>Q+ number of 40G QSFP+ ports
-<n>XQ number of 100G QSFP+ ports

then it wasn't a tongue slip. XG has it.

I had to comment on this, because I was just talking with my friends about your naming scheme. I just purchased the RB4011iGS+5HacQ2HnD-IN. When I was shopping for a router and came across it for the first time, I remember having a chuckle thinking it seemed a good router, but you guys might want to have a chat with your marketing guy. I figured there was a reason behind it, but it is a mouthful.

Jokes aside, it's my first Mikrotik router and aside from a few quirks with wifi which I'm hopeful will get worked out eventually, it seems well built and I'm very happy with it so far. Thanks!

Hi Normis!

1. I prefer the classic or Hex-S (!) style :-)
2. The LEDs. On the classic style the LEDs much more visible.

But it is my opinion

Are you aware that the ac^2 can be installed "flat"? i.e. the base has two configurations, the tower one and a desktop one.

By the way, I agree that the leds are too difficult to read, in any condition of light. I can barely tell how many are on. I also miss the ability to reprogram the leds, something I loved in the MISPBE hAP ac series...
