With 4 Gigabytes of RAM and a QuadCore 1.7 GHz CPU with the advanced ARM 64bit architecture, the CCR2004-16G-2S+ promises to fit perfectly within a variety of network designs. It has 16 1G Ethernet ports and 2 10G SFP+ ports. The Ethernet ports are divided into two groups, with each group connected to a separate switch-chip, and each chip connected to the CPU via a 10 Gbps full-duplex line. The same goes for each SFP+ cage.
Among other uses, such port arrangement gives you the freedom to use all 16 Ethernet ports for your local network, and utilize the pair of 10G SFP+ ports for establishing the required downlink and uplink.
Given its competitive pricing – not just among MikroTik routers but within the general market – the CCR2004-16G-2S+ can be considered an all-in-one solution for small and medium businesses! Also, unlike the first CCR2004 device, the CCR2004-16G-2S+ is equipped with a Type A USB port that qualifies this Ethernet router for large data networking projects, such as content filtering, network monitoring, and the like.
