MikroTik RouterBoard Super High Power Links

If you had told me 5 years ago you had a link with more than 3 watts of power I would have assumed it was amped. Using power amplifiers with WiFi is an old idea, long since passed in today’s age of high power wireless cards and high sensitivity receivers. So, when I read the latest news from MikroTik, I was shocked to see they have a device that outputs more than 3 watts of power, 3.1 to be exact. The new MikroTik RBQRTG-2SHPnD is an integrated panel antenna and wireless card/motherboard all in one running RouterOS. If you need a small footprint, long range device, I think you found it.

Speaking of innovative products, here is another one. A highly cost-effective way to connect two SFP/SFP+ devices (for example two units of CCR1036-8G-2S+) for very short distances, within racks and across adjacent racks, the MikroTik S+DA0001, an SFP to SFP device. No patch cord needed, this is SFP modules and fiber all in one. Interesting!
