your hope is misplaced, any news like that would be saved for MUM Europe anyways, not some monthly newsletter.
With great knowledge comes great responsibility, because of ability to recognize id... incompetent people much faster.

CRS305-1G-4S+IN
Maybe a stupid question but could one use the above device as an ethernet translation/adapter device (ethernet in from the LAN, fibre out to specific locations or devices)?
The info says the ethernet is strictly for management so me thinks not.

You could use an SFP+ to ether net adaptor though at the cost of an SFP port.

Look at the block diagram.. the ethernet port is switched with SFP+ so you should get wire speed switching between sfp-sfpplus1..4 and ether1.

Finally the CRS305-1G-4S+IN will be available, looking forward to upgrade some parts of my network to 10G.
Hopefully the CRS309-1G-8S+PC will follow soon.

LGH-LTe kit is really nice, but for $159 one would expect gigabit ethernet, especially since there's a cat4 modem inside...
Personally I use RBM11G with Wireless Instruments antenna/enclosure because Mikrotik doesn't offer gigabit LAN on any of their pre-made solutions.
And yes, I can go above 100Mbit with my connection because base station I'm connecting to is not overburdened.

I get your point, but this is mostly meant for locations where signal is very poor, this is why you use such a big antenna. And this also means, you use it in places where speed is not going to be so great. Otherwise, it would be enough to use a smaller LTE device.

The device could also be used in places where the signal is just average, in order to boost a low speed into 100mbps+ throughput. Only having an FE port already kills this use case though. There's really no reason why devices that have 100mbps+ possible on the radio side are still shipping with FE ports!

Yes, but the problem is that none of your pre-made LTE solutions has gigabit ethernet, yet they have cat4 modems inside. If I'm wrong please point me to that product.
I would really like to use one but it doesn't exist.

wAP LTE and LtAP have built in WiFi access points that would allow to use the full benefit of CAT4 max 150Mbit speed :)

Good luck getting 150mbps from a 2.4 GHz network that's not even inside the building!

Why isn't it? wAP LTE is something you can place on the window sill in a city apartment, where there is no DLS In your house. The use cases are different and many.

Is it possible to produce cheep simple Mikrotik device with:
1X 100mbps eth port
1X full USB port (with USB power reset)

with or without wifi, that option is not crucial.
with battery

there is some device from China and I have it, I don;t like factory firmware not either with OpenWrt.
From some unknown reason, Openwrt with 4g/LTE USB dongle working too slow if I cpmpare aliexpress device with mikrotik.

Maybe doable, but not in my case. I use my LTE setup (which is on the building roof) to distribute internet throughout my entire compound. (RBM11G=>RB3011=>20 Mikrotik APs).
Consider doing such product as this one but with gigabit ethernet. Aditional plus would be modem with higher LTE cat and support for carrier aggregation.
Thanks.

We would like to use LHG for companies in rural aera's with average 4g signal. We use the high gain antenna for stability and higher speeds. The 100mbit port is a unnecesary limitation of a very nice product.
We manage 50+ corporate wifi networks in the Netherlands using Mikrotik & Cloudcore equipment.

The LHG LTE kit (with a high gain 17dBI parabolic antenna) looks really promising. A few questions though:

1. Where can you find more detailed info regarding the antenna characteristics like MIMO, radiation patterns as lobe angles, etc. Doesn't need to be precise, a general descrioption will do.
2. Will it work in snowy regions "out of the box" i.e. is the antenna surface material designed or prepared some way with "anti freeze" ?
3. Can it act as "Remote CPE" with LTE passthrough ("bridge mode")?

Thanks in advance!

And more LTE products with old and slow cat4 modems...I dont understand how can anyone even get more than 100mbit from this, i cant get more than 30mbit sitting next to tower, while anything else from super old mobile phone(6-7 years) to 2x cheaper routers achieve at least 2x speed if not more..

Why cant u give us proper product with higher CAT modem like at least CAT6 would be nice?

I have 2 x SXT LTE, ones that support all bands, at 2 of my clients, they each get about 70Mb download

This is good news especially for B42 band that has been missing. If I may add, do you think in the future perhaps maybe you can modify the wAP R to have Battery backup? And a smaller version like miFi size? That will be awesome. All the same thanks!
