CRS226-24G-2S+RM

The Cloud Router Switch CRS226-24G-2S+ is now available also in a 1U rackmount case, product code CRS226-24G-2S+RM. It is a fully functional Layer 3 switch powered by RouterOS. All the specific switch configuration options are available in a special switch menu. But if you want, ports can be removed from the switch configuration and used for routing purposes. It has 24 Gigabit ports and two SFP+ cages for 10G connectivity (first SFP port supports 1.25G/10G modules, second port only 10G modules).

  1. All tests are done with Xena Networks specialized test equipment (XenaBay),and done according to RFC2544 (Xena2544)
  2. Max throughput is determined with 30+ second attempts with 0,1% packet loss tolerance in 64, 512, 1518 byte packet sizes
  3. Values in Italic indicate that max throughput was reached without maxing out CPU, but because board interface configuration was maxed out
  4. Test results show device maximum performance, and are reached using mentioned hardware and software configuration, different configurations most likely will result in lower results
