Product Wish: SG-1000 form factor with beefier multi-core CPU



  • I'm looking for the ultimate Travel / Off Grid / Emergency Operations security appliance that I can store and operate in a small Pelican case off DC power if AC is not available.  The SG-1000 is cute and affordable @ $149, but I just want a little more "oomph" in the same form factor.

    • Same or similar form factor as SG-1000.

    • Multi-core CPU.

    • Higher clocked CPU.

    • AES-NI support for future proofing (pfSense 2.5 and beyond).

    • Include 1-year Gold Subscription.

    • $199 price point possible?  ;)


  • Netgate

    I've considered building a second generation on the Armada 3720

    2 cores @ 1.2GHz. (ARM64)
    has crypto offload (does what you want from AES-NI)


  • Galactic Empire

    Would being powered by POE fly ?

    Would this crypto offload satisfy pfSense 2.5.x's requirement?


  • Galactic Empire

    Yup.


  • Rebel Alliance

    Can I add a Mini PCI Express slot for an LTE Modem.
    OTG just don't give me reliability
