Until now, there has been only czech news about the upcoming TO:
It has been presented in Las Vegas and Barcelona by now, but no english news have been sent out (on twitter only an information that it is being presented) as well as no ETAs.
Will there be some news soon or is it only work in process?
Btw, I will do my best to share pictures from the event, once it will be over and I will catch up on all the stuff. Till then, please, take a look on our social media, especially on Twitter which I try to keep up-to-date before I will be able to update also the rest of our social media stack.
Great to read that you guys work on a successor to the current TO. The red prototype with the cooling fins looks really great. Perhaps you can share a picture of the board … would love to see it. Anyhow, I certainly shall replace my current three TO’s with these once.
Do you know if current Turris Omnia can handle 1 Gbps connection? The new one with the specs definitely should. I also hope that WiFi will be better with the new model as I saw many complaints with the current line. I think I might be the only one who doesn’t like the chassis (appearance) comparing to the current model which I very like (I have a metallic silver version of 2020 retail release).
I suppose price will be higher - 10 to 12k CZK at least.
Also nobody mentioned PoE but it would come in handy (for an AP).
I dont like the chasis and color. But its up to personal choice. But I am sure I will stay with old Omnia. No need for 10Gbps traffic when my ISP speed is a bottleneck. But someone with fiber connectiom could make use of new model.
Well, CPU is already the limiting factor when it comes to traffic shaping. The current TO delivers up to ~500 MB/s symmetrical speeds with sqm activated (which is best in class for a current embedded device - please have a look for @moeller0 's expertise in this forum and forum.openwrt.org). So if you want symmetrical 1 GB/s with low to zero bufferbloat, you can either choose an X86 device or wait for this nice piece of hardware.
Another point is modem speeds for 4G/5G: right now the relevant port is connected only via USB2.0, so maximum speeds would be around 240 MB/s. 4G can (at least in Germany in selected spots) already deliver 500 MB/s, not speaking of 5G speeds…
You are right, when it comes to Wi-Fi6 - with adding a USB 3.0-5 GBE-adapter you can nearly max out single highspeed Wi-Fi6-connections (which are connected with mPCIe using 2 GB/s bandwidth, so a 4*4 x4 card should deliver near to maximum wireless speeds on 5 GHz and for sure maximum 2,4 GHz speeds).
when I tested omnia 2019, it could handle ~932 MBps. This seems to be limit of ethernet connection. The next limit will be number of packets per second. I have 500mbit now (1g was for test only) so i can only test that one.
But this is without bufferbloat reduction. CPU of TO (Indiegogo/2019/2020) is simply not powerful enough to do traffic shaping at bidirectional line speed (~930 MB/s).
TO 2022 should be able to do so (given a decent ARM quadcore).
Do you have partners in France ?
What is the target price ?
More technical question, bave you any details specifications ?
Will it be as for all past and actual Turris devices a Marvell SoC base ?
Can you tell more about the price ?
Will the components all mainline in linux ?
Also WiFi 6 ?
What manufacturer for the addons ?
Will there be extensions possible, like GPIO or MikroBus ?
Will the board work on OpenWrt also or only on turris ?
Will it have eMMC ?
How much ?
Will it have uboot bootloader ?
Will it be mainlined ?
Thanks in advance for all the precious details you will gave us !
