MikroTik used the feedback from the MikroTik user meetings to develop the perfect home lab router: compact, powerful, with multiple power supply options and efficient cooling. The RB5009 UG + S + IN has everything and more!

RB5009UG + S + IN

The RB5009 router has 9 wired ports and a full size USB 3.0. Seven of the ports are Gigabit Ethernet, another is 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet, and the last is a 10G SFP + cage. All ports are connected to a high-performance switch chip from the Marvell Amethyst family with a 10 Gbit / s full duplex line that leads to the Marvell Armada quad-core ARMv8 1.4 GHz CPU. Both the CPU and the switch chip are located on the underside of the board – so the housing acts as a massive heat sink!

RB5009 – New and double the performance with the perfect Home Lab Router – RB5009UG + S + IN

Heavy-Duty Home Lab Router:

Double the performance: MikroTik used your feedback from the MikroTik User Meetings to develop the perfect Home Lab Router: compact, powerful, with multiple power supply options and efficient cooling. The RB5009 has it all and more!

The board has 9 wired ports and a full size USB 3.0. Seven of the ports are Gigabit Ethernet, another is 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet, and the last is a 10G SFP + cage. All ports are connected to a high-performance switch chip from the Marvell Amethyst family with a 10 Gbit / s full duplex line that leads to the Marvell Armada quad-core ARMv8 1.4 GHz CPU. Both the CPU and the switch chip are located on the underside of the board – so the housing acts as a massive heat sink!

The RB5009UG + S + IN can be powered in 3 different ways:

  • PoE-in from Ethernet port # 1
  • DC jack
  • 2-pin connector on the side

The boards are equipped with 1 GB DDR4 RAM and 1 GB NAND memory. This combination of ports and components provides almost twice the performance in high-CPU configurations when compared to other MikroTik products in a similar form factor.

With a simple set of mounting accessories, you can mount FOUR of these routers in a single 1U rackmount space! No more server room tetris, just pure productivity.
