Dual 10GbE router supports WiFi 6 (AX3600)

We’ve just written about a Qualcomm IPQ8072A SBC/reference design with two 10GbE ports and WiFi 6 that’s good for companies wanting to design their own system, but if you’re looking for a dual 10GbE router there are already options, notably QNAP QHora-310W sold for $329 on Amazon.

But another dual 10GbE router with WiFi 6 was brought to my attention from a company I had never heard of. Acelink BR-6889AX is a WiFi 6 “AX3600 4T4R 10GE Router” based on Qualcomm IPQ8072A processor that’s suitable for the connected home and office networks including WFH use cases.

5G dual 10GbE router

Somehow, Acelink thought it was a good idea to provide a product page without a photo of the ports at the back of the router, so we’ll have to trust the specifications. There’s no information about software, but we can assume the system runs a Linux OS based on Qualcomm SDK or OpenWrt.

I was unable to find the router for sale, and only a few older WiFi routers/dongles from the company are listed online, so Acelink may focus on the ODM/OEM market. I contacted the company yesterday for additional information, including how to buy samples, but I’ve yet to receive an answer. I’ll update the post once/if I receive an answer.

Thanks to TLS for the tip.
