The development team has worked hard this year and we now provide Orchestration to PE and CE devices which includes (but not limited too), Juniper, Cisco, Mikrotik and Mellanox.
We have really been excited by the latest Mikrotik RB4011 model as shown here. While it has been available for a little while, we only recently put it through its paces.
This model is amazing and to put it into perspective it nearly performs as fast as a Juniper SRX1500. While the Juniper SRX ranges does have a lot more features, as you expect from a Tier 1 provider, with the RB4011 being available for sub $250.00 you can live with a few missing features available at that price.
But don't let it fool you, it delivers a punch, and when coupled as an ActivePort NTU in Edge, Cloud or SD-WAN mode, can deliver all the features of connectivity you expect from ActivePortal.
It is an amazingly powerful router with ten Gigabit ports, SFP+ 10Gbps interface and IPsec hardware acceleration. The IPsec hardware acceleration is perfect for Cloud or SD-WAN deployments.
With an SFP+ that supports 10Gbps, you can run it for Edge fibre connected deployments and nearly achieve 10Gbps wire speed performance.
The RB4011 uses a quad core Cortex A15 CPU is equipped with 1GB of RAM, can provide PoE output on port #10 and comes with a compact and professional looking solid metal enclosure in matte black.
At the price it is just amazing, so watch out Cisco and Juniper!
