List of EoL products

Wed Aug 07, 2013 11:55 am

Hello, is it possible to specify all EoL (end of life) products? Is anywhere list of this products (timetable)?

I'll be happy, if Mikrotik will inform me (newsletter) with information about discontinuing product some time before it will happen.
Generally, I apologise for my weak english.

MikroTik informs Distributors about this. For regular customers, you can tell by looking at www.RouterBOARD.com archive section.

Thank you Normis,
routerboard.com shows me actual products status, but no roadmap (plan) for next (1 - 6?) months.

I don't think any company releases information about products they will discontinue after 6 months. I could be wrong.

Last week I found, that RB1200 is the past. What RB is the successor of RB1200?
RB1200 had/has bugs, but for small office was ideal (10 Gb ports, fanless). RB2011 is weaker then RB1200, RB1100Hx2 has fans (and is more then twice stronger).
If I want replace RB1200 with similar performance RB, I can buy RB1100Hx2, underclock and stop fans. But is it good idea?

Why do you need to stop the fans? Do you do this also for your office PC and laptops? They have fans too.

Yes, but office PC and laptop has often bigger fans (80 - 120 mm) and lower speed => lower noise than 40mm fans in 1U devices. I need replace fanless RB1200 with some equivalent devices, but actualy I don't know about any equivalent RB.
Is there any successor of RB1200? What Mikrotik recommends?

The devices that aren't sold anymore will still work with the new software. There isn't really anything bad with EOL, other than you can't buy that model anymore. Obviously, after many years, the hardware will be too old to work with new software (like the old RB133's)

133 kicking ?
Not so sure about that.

I have +/- 180 brand new once still in original bags never opened.
They cant even run with 1 x pppoe 1 wlan and 1 ip with masq.
no dhcp only gateway pppoe and wlan.

Cpu runs at 90 - 100%.
133... I spend buying 200 and cant use any as we are replacing them with other devices.

Yes, I meant 133C, not 133. The difference is the RAM.

RB133C = 16mb RAM, so it is definitely not going to work.

RB133 = 32mb RAM, so it could work as a CPE or something else light duty.

On a related note: I have an RB751, which is also 32mb RAM... and using it as a router, it is using 30mb of ram leaving only 2mb free... and it is very unstable at that amount of free ram. I think that 32mb is simply too small of an amount of ram to be very useful for much more than a CPE or something small like that.

yes, use them as CPE doe to amount of RAM available. On the other hand, in most cases CPE could be running 3.30 or 4.x release.

Unfortunately for general AP use without any planning 32MB of ram will be too little.

Also, RB700 series CPU is several times more powerful that one in RB100 series had.

Why? I have a RB153 running happily as an AP with v5.24 and I see no major complaints with it.

Simply not enough memory.
If I do not use the pppoe then it is fine else when using pppoe and no dhcp ... then the CPU usage is between 60 - 100% with no wifi traffic flowing.
