NTA1000 Versions

knowledge-base version 13.9

Currently Shipping (NTA1000v7M)

The NTA1000 hardware platform is continually evolving to support new features and functionality in CDRouter. The currently-shipping version is the NTA1000v7M.

Older versions of the NTA1000 that have reached their end of life can be found here.

NTA1000v7M configurations

The latest NTA1000v7M can be purchased in either the S or the 10G configuration. The S configuration packs in 3 wireless interface cards, all available for wireless testing. The 10G option comes with 2 wireless interface cards and a dual port 10Gb/s Ethernet card.

Currently shipping NTA1000v7 systems have an “M” designation and use the AsiaRF AW7915-NP1 wireless 802.11ax card: NTA1000v7M-S, NTA1000v7M-10G

Note: The NTA1000v7 systems are no longer shipped with the Intel AX200 wireless 802.11ax card. The update to the AsiaRF AW7915-NP1 allows CDRouter to simulate multiple virtual 802.11ax clients during testing.
