please refer to BPI-R2 OpenWRT image?
I want to thank you, R2 is waiting for me at the post Office
This device doesn’t boot the OS from EMMC (at least based on provided install instructions), and the HDMI signal is scrambled. Any clues?
Hi! Watch this issue https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-R2-bsp/issues/9
Thank you for your reply - will do!
Realy nice hardware, but one more feature would be really useful. Now, GPON is more and more popular, also ONT are available as SFP module. Maybe R2 could be eqipped with SFP cage?
To make this, one of RGMII interface should me moved from MT7530 switch to separate PHY, like AR8031, which support copper and fiber (by SGMII/SerDes).
Total BOM would be rised by AR8031 and SFP cage cost, no more than 5USD: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Original-SFP-Connector-20PIN-surface-Mount-SMD-1367073-1-Original-SFP-Cage-Assembly-Solder-Tail/32483799124.html
R2 with SFP connector and SFP GPON ONT would be really good hardware for modern router. How do You like it?
Thanks for your useful suggestion, firstly we can use usb-to-SFP module to support SFP interface, below link for you reference:
And we will discuss this requirement with our team internally, thanks again.
I was considering also miniPCIe card (own project) of network interface to SFP based on Intel i210-IS/AS, but it seems that there would be mechanical conflict with SATA etc connectors - they would be in way of SFP module.
And also as in USB converter I suppose that HNAT would be unusable in those scenario.
Have You discussed SFP connector already?
This should be big change for us if we support SFP on R2, so our team don’t have plan to do this on standard R2 board, sorry for this. As we said before, we can use an usb-to-SFP mode
received my sample today, thank you very much.
Waiting now for my power supply and wifi-antennas then i can start to test
as use RTC for BPI-R2?
Hardware NAT is available based on lede.
We are interested in purchasing 4-6 of the BPI-R2 product for research purposes and we have a few questions.
- Will it run Open vSwitch (runs on debian)?
- Does it have built in storage for the OS? How much?
- Does it boot from SATA or the mini PCI-E slot?
- Can we install an SSD in the PCI-E slot and boot from that?
- We need a case for this product, is one available?
We are located in Greece. Where can we buy this product?
Does it have built in storage for the OS? How much?
Does it boot from SATA or the mini PCI-E slot?
not direct,but with my kernels you can have rootfs on sata-drive (boot-partition on emmc)
Can we install an SSD in the PCI-E slot and boot from that?
no pcie != msata
We need a case for this product, is one available?
there is a acrylic and one metal one official, inofficial 3d-model for printing and 2d-files for laser-cutting
Detailed Information in my wiki http://www.fw-web.de/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=en:bpi-r2:start
We don’t validate the openswitch on bpi-r2, but I think it’s easy to run it.
The built-in storage is 8GB EMMC.
There are two onboard SATA interfaces, the system can boot from SATA hard driver, (please note that both preloader and uboot must be in EMMC or SD card).
We can’t install SSD HD to mPCIE slot.
BPI-R2 Case is shown below:
For buying Bananapi product, please check below link: http://www.banana-pi.org/shop.html
Kernel (full boot-partition) must also be on sd/emmc, only root-partition can be on sata-drive if using a kernel with builtin-sata-support
When can we expect the BPI-R2 Case? i don’t see this product available in the reseller page.
But for me the shipping is 3 times the value of the case, and 35 euro for the case is a little too much imho. I hope they offer a less expensive shipping option, I would buy it for sure.
Agreed, crazy shipping is 3 times the value of the case. I will check again with EU reseller.
