This CCR2004 also features the Annapurna Labs Alpine v2 CPU with 4x 64-bit ARMv8-A Cortex-A57 cores running at 1,7GHz.
The difference is that this powerful router outperforms 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.
The device also consumes less energy which is good news for the environment.
Present are eighteen wired ports, composed of sixteen Gigabit Ethernet ports and two 10G SFP+ cages.
It also has a full-size USB and RJ-45 console port on the front panel.
The 1U case includes built-in dual redundant power supplies.
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.
