Hardware for High Speed link

Tue Dec 19, 2006 5:00 am

Hello

I am needing to create a duel-nstream link (or bonded) and need to get about 50+mbps through it.

Can anyone recomend hardware for this?
I assume it woul dneed to be a pc based system?

Thanks

I have used thinrouters for wisp-router. They are 533Mhz fanless CPUs. They seems to work fine.

Thanks

Do that have hardware watchdog?

What speed have you seen via wireless?

The Rb500 will be 400mhz soon so that will be great.

Thanks

No they don't but I have not had any problems with them. I have 6 on them running and they have never done me wrong.

It will be nice to the RBs run that fast.

Every time I post links to products like this it gets deleted.

That is a nice board, try it and let me know how it works.

I got a dealer (who I get all my Mikrotik stuff off in US) looking into that board for me.

When Mikrotik get faster boards I will switch to them as I have very little trouble with them, just need something to get me out of a bind for now.

Consider this if you really need performance:

Dual radio. http://www.commell.com.tw/product/SBC/LV-675.HTM

Hopefully we aren't going to need these soon. New product is way overdue from MT considering what others have released already.

Otherwise Stephen.Patrick should be along in a minute. <g>

I heard on this forum there were problems with the Via boards and Atheros chipsets locking up.

... well, it's nice to be anticipated .... ;-)

Low power and high performance is a real issue for all compute platforms.
To get non-CPU-constrained wireless performance on current RouterOS you need high speed x86 platforms. AFAIK that's because the "software defined radio" of latest chipsets like Atheros makes the CPU/driver work hard. Most of X86 platforms generate too much heat to be put in an outdoor enclosure unless serious attention is paid to thermal management.
For example, a Pentium M CPU has TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 22W, which is as much heat as a soldering iron - plus the rest of the chipset, RAM and power supply - not too good in an enclosed box. There are other lower power chipsets, which can be passively cooled in outdoor-grade enclosures, including excellent ones that we use in our own platforms.
Separately I gather MT is developing a higher speed, even low power board which will be greatly welcomed by many. Meantime, x86 is the only answer using RouterOS.

The reports on VIA platforms were on CLE266 and CN400 chipsets - "PCI bus lock up" at very high throughput rates - from several users, MT themselves and we also saw that from several vendors/boards. I don't know about latest CN700 but on track record, I'd not rush in there. Via is great for embedded Windows PCs but IMHO not for carrier-class routers.

Our co. decided to become a full MT OEM and we integrate products using the excellent RouterOS, rather than any other OS or writing our own. It's a really great platform and our complete hardware products using ROS have beat all of the major system vendors in several public tenders and are positioned well in many significant new projects.
I hope this thread is left intact is it's not advertising any competition.
