RB1100Hx2

This device provides best performaance 1U rackmount Gigabit Ethernet router for great price - with a dual core CPU, it can reach up to a million packets per second and costs as little as $445!

It has thirteen individual gigabit Ethernet ports, two 5-port switch groups, and includes Ethernet bypass capability. 1GB of SODIMM RAM are included, there is one microSD card slot, a beeper and a serial port.

The RB1100Hx2 is powered by RouterOS, a fully featured routing operating system which has been continuously improved for fifteen years. Dynamic routing, hotspot, firewall, MPLS, VPN, advanced quality of service, load balancing and bonding, real-time configuration and monitoring - just a few of the vast number of features supported by RouterOS.

The RB1100Hx2 comes preinstalled in a 1U aluminium rackmount case, power supply and power plug, assembled and ready to deploy.

  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
