There are three main reasons to choose the L009: better performance, more features, and some interesting quality of life improvements.
The legendary RB2011 product line has provided affordable, flexible and robust connectivity for over a decade.
But don’t worry: they have kept and improved all the key elements and features of the beloved RB2011. Also the red color scheme and attractive price!
The L009 has a powerful dual-core ARM CPU. It offers significant improvements in routing and filtering, complex firewall rules, IPsec hardware encryption, and several advanced RouterOS features.
The ARM CPU architecture offers significant advantages over older MIPS-based devices. Like using all the latest Linux kernel features. Or the implementation of your own container projects.
The combination of a modern ARM CPU and a full-size USB port is perfect for running custom container projects. For example, you could run a Pi-hole Adblock on this router.
Or you can use the USB port to add an LTE modem of your choice. The imagination is the real limit here.
