RB953GS-5HnT-RP

RouterBOARD 953GS-5HnT-RP is our first product with 5GHz 3x3 MIMO Triple Chain support. It has a powerful (up to 1600mW!) Atheros QCA9558 CPU 802.11a/n wireless support with three RPSMA connectors.

RB953GS-5HnT is equipped with a new Scorpion 720Mhz CPU, 128MB RAM and three Gigabit Ethernet ports, to take advantage of high-speed 3x3 MIMO wireless. Moreover, it comes with two SFP cages to accommodate FTTH and fiber ring requirements.

Handy additions are two miniPCI-express slots and two SIM slots, for multiple 3G/4G connections or wireless expansion.

Unit comes with preinstalled RouterOS Level5 license.

  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
