GrooveA 52 ac

Our smallest outdoor series model - a fully featured wireless RouterBOARD powered by RouterOS.

Weatherproof, durable and ready to use. Now with 802.11ac support, a Gigabit Ethernet port and a selectable wireless band (2.4GHz or 5GHz, up to 80 MHz wide channel). The new Gigabit port will help you utilise the full benefit of 802.11ac high speed wireless.

The Groove A (AP model) comes with Level 4 license and includes a Dual Band 2.4/5GHz Omni directional antenna (6dBi 2.4GHz, 8dBi 5GHz), so you can use the unit right out of the box, or use your own antenna.

- RBGrooveGA-52HPacn-US (USA) is factory locked for 2412-2462MHz, 5170-5250MHz and 5725-5835MHz frequencies. This lock can not be removed.

- RBGrooveGA-52HPacn (International) supports 2412-2484MHz and 5150MHz-5875MHz range.

  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
