MUM Europe 2018 - New hardware incoming

Thu Apr 05, 2018 10:24 pm

https://mum.mikrotik.com/presentations/ ... 914661.pdf => Thank you MikroTik!
So MikroTik focuses on new switches.

CRS354-48G-4S+2Q+
• 48x Gigabit ports
• 4x SFP+ for 10Gbit connections
• 2x QSFP ports for 40Gbit connections

CRS354-48P-4S+2Q+
• 48x Gigabit ports with PoE out
• 4x SFP+ for 10Gbit connections
• 2x QSFP+ ports for 40Gbit connections

CRS305-1G-4S+IN (I don´t know where I should use this one?)
• 4x SFP+ ports
• 1x Gigabit Ethernet
• Metallic enclosure
• Dual DC jacks

CRS309-1G-8S+PC (passive cooled!)
• 8x SFP+ ports
• 1x Gigabit Ethernet
• Silent case

CRS328-4C-20S-4S+RM
• 20x SFP ports
• 4x ETH/SFP combo ports
• 4x SFP+ ports
• Dual PSU

CRS332-32S+RM
• 32x SFP+ ports
• RJ45 console and ETH management
• Dual PSU

CRS312-4C+8XG
• 8x 10G Ethernet ports
• 4x 10G Ethernet / 10G SFP+ combo ports
• Console and management ports
• Dual PSU

I´m missing the new 80Gb router, though.
So we will see all of those within 2018? Does anyone know more? Pricing information would also be very interesting.

+1 on pricing and availability.
CRS305-1G-4S+IN is definitely a weird one, but I have some ideas if it's cheap enough.

Don’t worry, they haven’t delivered the CRS 328 yet so any of the announced products might change , stay the same, or be dropped. Either way, you won’t see them till next year, maybe if Tiks track record holds. :?

Hmm the tiny 4xSFP+ is a good option if you want to futureproof your tv cabinet lol, less cumbersome than a 326 if you want a good switchchip with full hw accelleration. If the price is right i might snag a crs 309 instead of a 317(i need three sfp+ at best in my homelab) like i was planning to.

Oh wow QSFP+ !
Bit disappointed by the lack of new CCR models or a Dual Band AC RB2011 upgrade.I always find these days I need something with 8+ SFP and 2X 10 SFP+ 10Gbit Uplinks for aggregation.1072 works but I think it can be done cheaper tbqh.

Three things
Is that a typo on the CRS354-48G-4S+2Q+ that it says QSFP.Shouldn't it be QSFP+ ?
Any chance of doing a 24/48 SFP+ and 2x QSFP+ CRS Switch. Find I need these types of switches a lot for DR environments. That CRS332-32S+RM looks almost perfect.Just need 40/100 Gbit Uplinks.
Any chance of some QSFP+ Mikrotik modules per chance ? Sometimes takes forever to get Fiberstore imports through customs.

Most of these switches are useless for many scenarios, especially for data centres. What's the use of a switch with SFP + ports, if it does not have a uplink? Mikrotik must seriously work on the research and needs of clients. All new switches should have a minimum of 2-4 QSFP ports, otherwise they are useless! Take for example CRS332-32S+RM, what's the use of having 20 servers connected to the 10 Gbps link, if the switch does not have a uplink port? What? I need to do bonding of 5-10 ports and use it as uplink ??? Hello, mikrotik guys, get serious and you will see that the new series of switches has serious lacks, uplink ports are missing!!!
The switch CRS354-48G-4S + 2Q +, which has 48 x 1 Gbps port has QSFP uplinks, and a switch that has 10 Gbps ports does not have a QSFP uplink, Does anyone else think this is funny?

Sorry to burst your bubble but anybody with so many 10g ports in their datacenter to justify going 40/100g is going to deploy CSS/CRS to use them as edge/access devices or remote site aggregation at best, where QSFP is a nice extra but not mission critical. If you are so bandwidth strapped to cry for so many 40/100 Gb ports and haven't got the budget for aristas/nexus, there is something very off with your firm IT priorities.

Is that a typo on the CRS354-48G-4S+2Q+ that it says QSFP.Shouldn't it be QSFP+ ?
sure it should. what i am more intrigued about is the routerboot changelog for 3.40. i hope it's not a typo there:
removed support for QSFP28 swapped I2C;
QSFP+ is just for 40GE, but QSFP28 is up to Nx25/50/100GE, and it also does support fanout.
on the other hand, QSFP+ implementation on mikrotik's CRS354 might be able to do 4x10 breakout with a proper pluggable as well...

• 48x Gigabit ports

CRS354-48P-4S+2Q+
• 48x Gigabit ports with PoE out
• 4x SFP+ for 10Gbit connections
• 2x QSFP+ ports for 40Gbit connections

Great, however not sure why the included QSFP in these models. Compared with other vendors usually 4 x SFP+ is enough. The only usually include QSFP if the ports are all 10Ge or SFP+. Not complaining as such, but a little strange.

CRS305-1G-4S+IN (I don´t know where I should use this one?)
• 4x SFP+ ports
• 1x Gigabit Ethernet
• Metallic enclosure
• Dual DC jacks
Nice for in a riser scenario.

CRS328-4C-20S-4S+RM
• 20x SFP ports
• 4x ETH/SFP combo ports
• 4x SFP+ ports
• Dual PSU

Great, like this product.

CRS332-32S+RM
• 32x SFP+ ports
• RJ45 console and ETH management
• Dual PSU

Should have rather had 20-24 SFP+ and at least 2 x QSFP.
/quote]

I really do appreciate that Mikrotik is trying to improve their switch lineup. Just some of their decisions baffles me.

e.g I can get a brand new Juniper EX4600 for 50% more than a CCR1072 (I know its a router, but just to give you an idea of price point).
For this I get:
24 x SFP+
4 x QSFP+
2 x Management ports (ethernet and SFP)
and I can still add two expansion models of 8x SFP+ each, or even 2 x 4 port QSFP+ ports.

When I want to compare to this switch, I can't with Mikrotik. E.g their switch with 32 x SFP+ ports - has no QSFP+ ports, if I only wanted SFP+ I would get a refurb dell for $1200.

I am glad they went with QSFP as it is at a nice price point currently, I think it satisfies more people than QSFP28 would, well at least till the next revision of hardware. For me these are the models that I would have/design:

8 x 1Gbps ethernet and 2 x SFP+ both in POE and non POE (deskmount case)
24 x 1Gbps ethernet and 4 x SFP+ both in POE and non POE. (option of adding an additional PSU)
48 x 1Gbps ethernet and 4 x SFP+ both in POE and non POE. (option of adding an additional PSU)
24 x 10G ethernet and 4 x QSFP+
24 x SFP, and 4 x SFP+ (dual power supplies)
24 x SFP+ and 4 x QSFP+ (dual power supplies)

I think you should do the upgrade. And sell your used gear for fraction of price to me. I'm thinking of upgrading my home network from 100Mbps to 1Gbps at every UTP outlet :wink:

Yeah i do work in a datacentre and most of the 10g traffic stays in the same switch, a leaf/spine uplink strategy will suffice so no need for many QSFP+ ports let alone CFP. If you have a situation where all of the servers hammer down both the server ports and uplink ports in a north-south scenario, given all the issues you can find reported in this same board or the swos board, a crs is going to melt anyway so no point into making such a fuss, if you have such network requirements you need to spec proper switching kit and not Mikro. Let me repeat in case you didn't catch the hint i said twice, mikrotik 10g kit is a decent pick for a homelab where there are no issues if it doesn't perform up to spec, if you have serious datacenter requirements look elsewhere.

QSFP+ could be used for future features, like stacking.

True (which would be nice), but just find it strange that the CRS354-48G-4S+2Q+ and CRS354-48P-4S+2Q+ switches get QSFP ports, however the SFP+ CRS332-32S+RM switch does not. Maybe something that can still be remedied?

I really like the look of the CRS354's though. Been waiting for ages for 48 port switches from Mikrotik :)

In my scenario almost all data to server going through uplink ports. Most of 10Gbps clients are IPTV providers, etc... there i no too much data between clients on same switch... Anyway, it is illogical for me to put QSFP uplink on a 1 Gbps ports switch, and not to 10 Gbps ports switch.

I bought a 5-port gigabit switch a few months ago for a small home network:

cable router -> UPS -> switch

So there would be a use for 10G eventually, but I would not want SFP+.

Hi!

I hope mikrotik will think about the new models one more time - they have a very strange port-set...

For me, it's important to have an uplink that is "one-speedstep" above the rest of the ports.

CRS332 should have:
32x SFP+
2-4x QSFP+

This would be a nice device...

CRS354 is good, but QSFP+ is only needed if there are more SFP+-ports...

CRS317 doesn't have uplink as well. I see it as core switch to support whole network, not aggregation switch. Lets say you get 7x CRS326, 1x CRS317 and one CCR1036 so that you get 20G LACP to each CRS326 and one LACP to CCR1036. While most of the traffic would stay within switch (maybe just using ACLs to limit connectivity) you'd still get 20G routing to world and inter-VLAN which is probably more than enough. Most of high performance interconnects between devices (like storage server to hypervisors) are placed within single VLAN (because storage is latency-sensitive and shouldn't be routed) so they're forwarded just by switch, not router. I think CRS332 is also meant to be core switch with lets say 4x10G LACP for uplink to CCR1072. It's not all that strange. Currently MikroTik has no router with QSFP+ so I don't see any reason why they should add such ports to their switches which I assume are meant to be used together with their routers. As it's been said QSFP+ iin that 48 port switch is rather meant for stacking, not really for uplink. I guess it implies that CRS317 and CRS332 are not meant to be stacked, dunno.

I personally use CCR1009 connected to CRS317 and CRS326 connected to that CRS317 using 20G LACP so similar scenario to what I described - CRS317 being final switch before router which doesn't have performance to route 40G anyways.

+1 on pricing and availability.
CRS305-1G-4S+IN is definitely a weird one, but I have some ideas if it's cheap enough.
Yes it's really weird one and actually it really reminds me of this:

Or more precisely SFP variant:

It's 4 port SFP active TAP for monitoring networks and it's expensive af (several thousand dollars iirc, passive ones are a bit cheaper but not always suitable). If CRS305 would allow to put uplink span on one port and downlink span on second port (like CRS1xx and CRS2xx series do, unfortunately CRS3xx don't for now) it would be perfect low-budget 10G active TAP device. I RELLY think MikroTik should go this way. TAP devices are for now quite expensive, even passive ones. With dual PSU (or triple because it has PoE right?) cheap TAP-like mini 10G switch MikroTik could change that. I think it's totally worth a shot.

Low budget 10G TAP to get uplink span to some budget IDS solution like Snort or Suricata? I'm in.

By the way, if anyone noticed, CRS332-32S+RM has now became CRS326-24S+2Q+RM

Awsome, I did let them know that a 24 port SFP+ switch is pretty useless without some QSFP+ ports. Well done Mikrotik.

A NAS card is 450 euro. You could even have 40GbE at home instead of TB3.

Already one NVMe M.2 can saturate 40GbE.

U.2 and SAS drives do not seem to make sense because of price.

Few enclosures.

SATA drives are too slow.

SSDs are too expensive.

Looks like SATA 3.5" + NVMe caching will have to do for a small NAS.

Let's check ... the generic example I've found in Poland: SSD Crucial MX500 500GB for 100$ is too expensive?

How much for 6x 4TB NVMe drives?

24TB of 7200RPM SATA hard drives costs $800. 32TB for $1000. You would need to add one NVMe cache drive.

You only need a 4-bay NAS with 8TB drives to have 2 RAID0 volumes of at least 12TB.

3x NVMe is overkill for 40GbE. 3x SATA SSDs are too slow.

Just one 4TB SSD starts at $800.

Even at your price, it would be $2000 to reach 24TB.

I see it at almost $1200 each retail.

When will we see a new high end router like the CCR1072?

Is CCR1072 already too weak? xD Currently developed switches sound like good foundation for stronger routers (QSFP+ uplinks). So maybe after they get released. It seems Mtk for now tries to fix their strong lacks in L2. But CRS326-24S+2Q+RM needs some nice router with QSFP+ right? ;)

The chipset has been discontinued, linux dropped support for it, and the new RB4011 pulls down full BGP feeds faster than a CCR1072. It's time for something new in the 1036/1072 range.

I'm actually more interested in pricing :D Especially that CRS326-24S+2Q+RM and CRS309-1G-8S+PC because they have opportunity to crush price per SFP+ ratio quite hard. CRS305 for now significantly exceeded my expectations regarding pricing, I thought it's gonna be like 200$+

Tile is still on Mellanox's product pages and it can be reinstated in Linux if someone wants to support it.

ROS 6.x is on kernel 3.x anyways so until MikroTik releases ROS 7 I think Tile is still relevant. So probably for like... next 10 years xD

RB4011 and RB1100AHx4 have only 1GB of RAM soldered (not expandable by changing a SODIMM) - is this sufficient to handle full BGP feeds?

Nice switches. I was hoping for an RB1100AHx4 with some 2-4 combo/sfp ports.

No but seriously, can we expect some router with QSFP+? It'd be really nice to be able to get inter-vlan-routing on those QSFP+ switches at 40G speed. Maybe some port setup like 2x QSFP+ and 4x or 8x 10G. It'd be nice upgrade. Or at least 1x QSFP+ and lets say 8x 10G. 80G -> 120G capacity upgrade sounds reasonably.

Any info regarding CRS326-24S+2Q+RM? I'm not sure if it's worth to wait or should I just go with CRS317. By worth to wait I mean like 1Q2019
