Forget about CPU limitations in 10G setups with this powerful 16-core ARM CPU based CCR. Double the performance of our previous 36- core CCR, 6x faster BGP performance. Includes an M.2 PCIe slot.
We wanted to see the full potential of the good, old, reliable 10G networking combined with a modern CPU. CCR2116-12G-4S+ allows you to forget about CPU limitations in your setup. Like its younger brother – the amazing CCR2004, this router features the mighty Amazon Annapurna Labs Alpine CPU.
But with 16 cores running at 2 GHz, this CCR eats the other one for breakfast. For example, we see at least a 15% increase 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. CCR2116-12G-4S+ sets a new standard of single-core performance in the whole CCR product family! And it supports Layer 3 Hardware Offloading!
Obviously, you need the right connectivity to harness this power. There are four 10G SFP+ ports. They have a separate, full-duplex line connected to the Marvell Aldrin family switch chip. Then we have Gigabit Ethernet ports. 12 of them are running through the Marvel chip. And there is another Gigabit port connected directly to the CPU. For management purposes.
