Product Wish: SG-1000 form factor with beefier multi-core CPU
« on: November 23, 2017, 10:38:53 pm »
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?  ;)

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)

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

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