Naming details for RouterBOARD products

RouterBOARD (short version RB)

<board name> <board features>-<build-in wireless> <wireless card features>-<connector type>
-<enclosure type>

Board Name

Currently there can be three types of board names:

  • 3-digit number
    • 1st digit stands for series
    • 2nd digit for indicating number of potential wired interfaces (Ethernet, SFP, SFP+)
    • 3rd digit for indicating number of potential wireless interfaces (build-in and mPCI and mPCIe slots)
  • Word - currently used names are: OmniTIK, Groove, SXT, SEXTANT, Metal. If board has fundamental changes in hardware (such as completely different CPU) revision version will be added in the end
  • Exceptional naming - 600, 800, 1000, 1100, 1200, 2011 boards are standalone representatives of the series or have more than 9 wired interfaces, so name was simplified to full hundreds or development year.

Board Features

Board features follows immediately after board name section (no spaces or dashes), except when board name is a word, then board features are separated by space.

Currently used features (listed in order they are used):

  • U - USB
  • P - power injection with controller
  • i - single port power injector without controller
  • A - more memory (and usually higher license level)
  • H - more powerful CPU
  • G - Gigabit (usually includes "U","A","H", if not used with "L")
  • L - light edition
  • S - SFP port (legacy usage - SwitchOS devices)
  • e - PCIe interaface extention card
  • x<N> - where N is number of CPU cores ( x2, x16, x36 etc)

Built-in wireless details

If board has built-in wireless, then all its features are represented in following format:


  • band
    • 5 - 5Ghz
    • 2 - 2.4Ghz
    • 52 - dual band 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz
  • power per chain
    • (not used) - "Normal" - <23dBm at 6Mbps 802.11a; <24dBm at 6Mbps 802.11g
    • H - "High" - 23-24dBm at 6Mbps 802.11a; 24-27dBm at 6Mbps 802.11g
    • HP - "High Power" - 25-26dBm 6Mbps 802.11a; 28-29dBm at 6Mbps 802.11g
    • SHP - "Super High Power" - 27+dBm at 6Mbps 802.11a; 30+dBm at 6Mbps 802.11g
  • protocol
    • (not used) - for cards with only 802.11a/b/g support
    • n - for cards with 802.11n support
    • ac - for cards with 802.11ac support
  • number_of_chains
    • (not used) - single chain
    • D - dual chain
    • T - triple chain

  • connector type
    • (not used) - only one connector option on the model
    • MMCX - MMCX connector type
    • u.FL - u.FL connector type

Enclosure type

  • (not used) - main type of enclosure for a product
  • BU - board unit (no enclosure) - for situation when board-only option is required, but main product already comes in the case
  • RM - rack-mount enclosure
  • IN - indoor enclosure
  • OUT - outdoor enclosure
  • SA - sector antenna enclosure
  • HG - high gain antenna enclosure
  • EM - extended memory
