There are three main reasons to choose the L009: better performance, more features, and some interesting quality-of-life improvements.
Let’s start with the raw power and performance improvements!The legendary RB2011 product line has provided affordable, flexible, and robust connectivity for over a decade.
But don’t worry: they’ve kept and improved all the key elements and features of the beloved RB2011. Even the red color scheme and the appealing price!
L009 features a powerful dual-core ARM CPU. It offers significant improvement when it comes to routing and filtering, complex firewall rules, IPsec hardware encryption, and various advanced RouterOS features.
ARM CPU architecture provides significant advantages over older MIPS-based devices. Like using all the latest Linux Kernel features. Or implementing your own container projects.
The combination of a modern ARM CPU and a full-sized USB port is perfect for running custom container projects. You could run a Pi-hole adblock on this router, for example.
Or you could use the USB to add an LTE modem of your choice. Imagination is the real limit here.
