So, there is a 100g switch coming?

Because that is the ONE thing I read that I really really really like in the September newsletter.

There is a CCR2016-1G-12XS-2XQ coming, if we may believe the innards of the ROS7 binaries. That's all I'm aware of.

That would be not good enough - it would have 40g links, which... let me quote from the newletter:

> In the near future, the network will be upgraded to a 100 Gbps data transfer rate, using MikroTik devices that will be released soon.

I would read this as something with 100g ports - SOME of them (i.e. a backend switch that can then serve multiple switches that handle the devices at lower speed). Unless one assumes 100g aggregate, which is easily doable with 40g ports.

No it wouldn't. 'XS' is 25G SFP+, 'XQ' is 100G QSFP+

I really hope so, 100G on a CCR or CRS would be amazing!!

We have use cases in the data center and in service providers for 100G ports this would be perfect for.

Yeah. a 100g x 12 "top of rack" with a decent SOC - look at the prices of those switches and Mikrotik kan make a real dent in the market.

With free daily flappings of the interfaces ;-)
Operating at these speeds requires some serious engineering, fully redundant "non stop" fabric, separate control & data-planes (and preferably redundant offcourse)

Cool, how much do you want to pay ?

More then a few minutes downtime in (such) environments may already start paying for this.
Sure you could create your stack in such way that outage is not (so) relevant or noticeable, but 100G ports would not be typically found on endpoints (servers) , but more on a distribution/core layers where I'm pretty sure you will notice some hickups.

Let me say if that thing goes for 5000 (€) it likely is going to sell. Look up proces of Mellanox 2100s for a shock. Hint: list price is multiple times that. And I am not talking double ;)
