Best single-core performance in the CCR family.
Built-in dual redundant power supplies
Like the other models in CCR2004 series, this CCR also features the Annapurna Labs Alpine v2 CPU with 4x 64-bit ARMv8-A Cortex-A57 cores running at 1,7GHz. But hereâ€™s the difference. This powerful router crushes all previous CCR models in single-core performance, and that is the most important aspect when it comes to heavy operations based on per-connection processing. Like queues, for example.
But thatâ€™s not all! It also has the best single-core performance per watt and best overall performance per watt among all the CCR devices. Better for the planet, better for the bills, itâ€™s a win-win!
The new router has 18 wired ports, including 16x Gigabit Ethernet ports and two 10G SFP+ cages. It also has a full-size USB and RJ-45 console port on the front panel.
Like all CCR devices, it comes in a classic white 1U rackmount case. Built-in dual redundant power supplies are included, so you have one less thing to worry about. And, of course, there is active cooling to keep things nice and cool.
Each group of 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports is connected to a separate Marvell Amethyst family switch-chip. Each switch chip has a 10 Gbps full-duplex line connected to the CPU. The same goes for each SFP+ cage – a separate 10 Gbps full-duplex line. Boards come with 4GB of DDR4 RAM and 128MB of NAND storage.
