Mikrotik Newsletter #31

The PDF can be found here.

This is one pretty light…they are really just pimping a couple of the new products:

The Grove5Hn($69) and the Grove A-5Hn($89).

The specs are:

  • 400 Mhz Atheros
  • 32MB of RAM for the standard and 64MB for the A version
  • 64MB of flash
  • n 5GHz 802.11a/n 1×1 MIMO with N-male connector
  • Level 3 license on the standard and level 4 license on the A model.
  • PoE and zipties included
  • RB1200($349)

  • 1Ghz CPU
  • 512MB RAM
  • 10 gig ports that are subdivided into two sets of ASICS(5 ports at a time can be hardware switched)
  • Level 6 license
  • RB435G($189)

  • 5 mini-pci slots
  • 3 gig ports
  • USB 2.0 for 3G backup
  • 680Mhz proc with 800Mhz clock option(it appears that overclocking will give you 25% more throughput)
  • Level 5 license
  • 256MB RAM
  • I was really expecting the 1200 line to be less expensive. It really feels more like trading out one product for another…not a wholly new product. Not that I wouldn’t mind evaluating one 😉

      I believe they technically call them “straps”…but who are we kidding…they are big zip ties. I don’t care if it is chewing gum as long as it holds up. 😛
