this reminded me that another day I passed a web-page of a platform and
in the hope this has not been on the list yet passing it forward.


An interesting tidbit in the platform is the choice of firmware, I
think. Haven't seen any board yet with the similar choice by the
manufacturer. With a quick summing from the vendor part catalog, the
platform is sub 200 EUR (238 USD in current exchange rate) for an about
working assembly of 3x 1GbE, 4G ram, 1G flash, 802.11a/b/g/n radio...

I can't say anything how capable the hw might be for the stated inbound
shaping performance. I have had an ALIX board from their previous
generation for years and its been humming nicely though I haven't pushed
it to its envelope.
