    This means rackable by default. Maybe with an USBC console port, integrating a well known serial adapter, so no modern OS will need driver to "find" an old-but-gold RS232 interface.

    The part "no WAN/LAN given ports" it's locked up to big chunks upper rank, at least 6 interface going 10.

    Anyway... a lot of RAM, ARM multicore SoC, tougher NICs with on-chip VLAN management and quite good offload from SoC about "simple" things.
    MultiCore PPPoE daemon.
