When will GLi products upgrade USB Type-C?

When will GLi products upgrade USB Type-C?

I bought almost all GLi products. I like it very much.
Can the industrial design of the casing go further?
Can the power supply be upgraded to USB Type-C?
These two points are very concerned
Because it is used as a mobile, that is, with the notebook.
I don’t want to have a lot of messy accessories.

I hope to see such a router in the future.
The WAN port is WIFI to connect to the wifi relay.
The LAN port is Gigabit Ethernet and can be inserted directly and quickly.
Notebook integrated router

Like the GL-USB150 (Microuter)

This is the real VPN router. I hope the vendors can see it.

We’re making a new mifi with type-c now. We’re planing to show a prototype at CES 2019.

Are new products all type C? I don’t have a single phone or 5V-powered piece of equipment that is anything other than USB Micro!

Will try to have Type C in some products in the coming year.

In the SoC we are using, they don’t really support Type C. So the final product we have will be physical Type C, but internal it will still be USB2.0 or 3.0. But type C will be used to extend the product.

Industrial design is almost improving.

We will upgrade Microuter. But eventually we cannot make it small. So it will be a little big. So it will come with a tail (USB cable) and a big head.

Hi, speaking of bigger routers, do you have plans to release something other than X1200? Also I saw someone from gl.inet submit patches to OpenWrt but they didn’t follow up… I think having official support will make your boxes very attractive to S.Is. Especially since gl.inet provides branding services etc.

I know a few S.Is, they look around for high quality routers to integrate into their solutions, so X1200 is very attractive for them… but I’m hoping for something better… like B1300 but full size, not small/travel router… or something based on higher end qualcomm chipsets… make it big… full 4+1 ports, and if possible 1 10G or SFP port would be great.

A little more forward-looking than the google wifi design or more practical than eero design, that’s fine, vpn multi-purpose small hotspot router
