will the br1 line, i.e. mk2, be refreshed/upgraded at any point?

Looking at the band support, none of these refreshed models support Band 71?

Do you think MK2 should be included? If yes, why?

Yes, the above CAT 12 portfolio does not support Band 71. Currently, Transit Mini (CAT 4) support Band 71. But we will launch some Gigabit routers which supports Band 71 in the future.

If you dont refresh it is going to become obsolete. Band 14 (at least on AT&T) would be a useful band to have. Also, I recommend upgrading the wireless radios to be a bit more powerful… at least 27 dBm on transmit power for both 2.4 and 5ghz radios… important for those that use the devices as WiFi as WAN.

Thanks for the clarification. I wanted to be sure this wasn’t the product refresh with Band 71 support mentioned in another thread.

Hi Cassy, are any of the new CAT 18 routers that were just released, band 71 compatible? I am not seeing it mentioned on the website.
