    For those who follow UBNT EdgeRouters and have been hoping for an ER-4/6P with a dedicated switch chip and more ports, the ER-12 will be coming out soon. UBNT website price: $195 USD. Here's the initial info from the early-access page, plus photos:

    $195 for ER-12 would be a steal (if Edgemax firmware could start to improve..).

    Is the price real...? I saw ER-4 is around the same price online.

    No photoshop, I swear. :eek:

    And regarding firmware, yes. More CLI/GUI feature parity would be nice, among a whole host of other things. But they're getting there, albeit slowly...

    mentioned many times. keyword, mainline, so it can be supported on the side. The reason why it was dropped by mainline was that there was no company supporting it nor a need so any support would be on the sideline.

    I would not run a router which did not have manufacture support. It is time to let it go.

    Microtik has been on their own, and will continue so. That's why it doesn't matter much to them, and I believe one of the reasons Tile was dropped as Microtik never contributes back codes.

    So it's still the same Microtik..like it or not. Personally I like a more open approach. But I won't be surprised quite a few have Cisco and alike as their model and wanna-be.

    when i asked will it blend, i didnt mean that edgerouters are bad, mikrotik routers are great, i meant will it work well for all networks? Because there hasnt been many extensive reviews.

    I don't know of any router that will work for all networks.
    Thats why Cisco, Juniper, and yes . . . even Mikrotik make multiple models.

    Lets make a new meme for router reviews @thiggins @sfx2000 @kvic @coxhaus

    Will it route? Basically to test how much it fits into every network for example.

    FWIW - Tilera was good enough that EzChip bought them up - and then they (EzChip) was bought by Mellanox...

    The idea of many cores in a mesh is still alive - it's shifted from the proprietary Tilera cores (being somewhat MIPS like) over to ARM, and that chip is still alive in big iron switches and routers.

    Lol, love that. And actually pretty relevant, too. Not sure it would @thiggins style of content, but funny and applicable nonetheless. ;)

    the manycore and mesh is still much alive in many architectures, intel's GPU attempt is one which is now available as a xeon CPU which can be run as a standalone or mixed with a regular xeon CPU in a multi socket board. Even the MIPS used in the new edgerouter is a manycore as well but ubiquiti uses the lowest end of it (16 cores rather than the 64 core available version) at best.
