The Station P2S, a compact and versatile mini PC that runs on the 64-bit RK3568 SoC. Moreover, the new mini PC offers flexible storage options and it supports dual GbE LAN, dual-band Wi-Fi, and 4G LTE network compatibility.

This mini-PC is equipped with two 1000Mbps Ethernet ports, enabling high-speed wired networking. The LAN port supports POE+(802.3 AT, 30W) power supply, adding convenience and flexibility.

The device supports dual-band 2.4G/5GHz WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless connectivity. The main difference between the Station P2 and P2S appears to be its PoE support and the SIM card slot for 4G connectivity.
