.. wait what?

RB SFP3903D listed as 10G and working in a yet to be announced product (TBA).

Are they  referring to another as yet unannounced model of the CCR or something entirely new? More info here as we find it!

Update: Relevant reading from Tilera – http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/Tileras-TILE-Gx-MikroTiks-RouterOS-Unleash-Worlds-First-36-Core-Cloud-Core-Router-1678838.htm 

This would lead us to believe the SFP in question is a 10Gig SFP+ module intended to work in an as yet unannounced CCR model,  joy to the routing world!
