The Blockchain Router is based on an open architecture with a FOSSH design available at the GitHub [1]. It uses the most advanced MPSoC on the market: Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ with two SODIMM DDR4 RAM slots; one for the processing system (PS), the other for the programming logic (PL): total capacity of 16 GB. The PL has enough logic cells and RAM to mine Ethereum tokens while the PS functions as a plug-and-play Subutai PeerOS Appliance and broadband router. Broadband routers are an essential ingredient in the business of providing Internet services and the Blockchain Router is built to remain competitive well into the future with the prevalence of 5G and 100GB Ethernet technologies to support Subutai’s economy operators.
