The meaning of the product code on the Mikrotik RouterBoard

The meaning of the product code on the Mikrotik RouterBoard

Product code on Mikrotik has its own meaning. Sometimes we don’t understand what the meaning of the product code name means on Mikrotik. Though this Mikrotik Product Code is very important to know if we want to buy a Mikrotik device.

Example Product Code Mikrotik RB750, RB751Ui-2HnD, RB951G-2HnD, RB912UAG – 2HPND, RB2011UiAS-IN, CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+, CRS226-24G-2S+RM, etc.

From the example of the Mikrotik product code, we can find out the type, type, device specifications and installation. How to find out the meaning of the Mikrotik product code? Let’s discuss together in this Mikrotik Tutorial.

Naming on the Mikrotik RouterBoard has been standardized, with the following format:

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

The following is an explanation of each parameter:

Board Name (Board Name)

As an example :
RB750
RB = RouterBoard
7 = Shows the serial name (700 series)
5 = Indicates the number of wired interfaces (ethernet, SFP, SFP+)
0 = Indicates the number of wireless interfaces (mini PCI)

So the purpose of the RB750 is, the RouterBoard 700 series product, which has 5 for ethernet interfaces and does not have a wireless interface.

Board Features

This board feature is written directly after the board name without spaces or dashes. The following board features are in the Mikrotik code product:

  • U – USB
  • P – power injection with controller (PoE out)
  • i – single injector port power without controller (single PoE out)
  • A – more memory (and usually higher license levels)
  • H – more powerful CPU
  • G – Gigabit (may include “U”, “A”, “H”, if not used with “L”)
  • L – Light edition (light)
  • S – SFP port
  • e – PCIe card interface extension
  • x – where N is the number of CPU cores (x2, x16, x36 etc)
  • R – MiniPCI or MINIPCIe Slot

Built-in Wireless

If the Mikrotik board is equipped with a built-in wireless interface, here’s the naming format:

<band><power_per_chain><protocol><number_of_chains>

The following is an explanation of each parameter:

band

  • 5 = 5Ghz
  • 2 = 2.4Ghz
  • 52 = dual band 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz

power per chain

  • (Blank) = “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

  • (blank) = Card with 802.11a/b/g standard
  • n = Card support 802.11n
  • ac = Card support 802.11ac

number_of_chains

  • (empty) = single chain
  • D = dual chain
  • T = triple chain

connector type

  • (empty) = only one connector option
  • MMCX = for connector type MMCX
  • u.FL = for connector type u.FL

Enclosure Type (Container/Case Type)

The following is an explanation of the type of container / casing in the Mikrotik product code:

  • BU = board unit (without casing)
  • RM = rack-mount enclosure (Case that is specifically designed to be placed on a rack with mounting)
  • IN – indoor enclosure (Case used to be placed indoors without rack mounting)
  • EM – extended memory (More memory capacity)
  • LM – light memory (Smaller memory capacity)
  • BE – black edition case
  • TC – Tower (vertical) case
  • OUT – outdoor enclosure (Special case for outdoor installation)

Are you dizzy? If you have a headache taking medicine, hehe.. Okay, so that it doesn’t make you more dizzy, let’s try to practice immediately to identify one of the fairly long Mikrotik product codes, namely RB912UAG-2HPnD.

Mikrotik RouterBoard 912UAG-2HPnD

RB912UAG2HPnD

  • RB = RouterBoard
  • 912 = 9 Series Board
  • 912 = Has 1 ethernet interface
  • 912 = Has 2 wireless interfaces (default and miniPCIe)
  • UAG = Has a USB Port
  • UAG = More memory
  • UAG = Ethernet port type is gigabit (10/100/1000)
  • 2HPnD = 2.4 GHz Band
  • 2HPnD = High Power
  • 2HPnD = Card support 802.11n
  • 2HPnD = Dual Chain

Well, now you understand how to name the Mikrotik product code. So when we want to buy a Mikrotik RouterBoard, we can find out various kinds of information about the product just by reading the product name.
