Find out in this report how the two Routers solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"They have a good lifespan and they are easily managed."
"The main reason for using Cisco Routers is for the proprietor routing protocol that it has."
"I haven't assessed it in that way, they provided us with excellent service. We had very few issues."
"They are the best in failover switches. Their product line is excellent."
"What I like the most is that it's an easy plug and play device to work with."
"I recommend Cisco Routers because of its stability, support, and availability. Cisco gives premium support, and they offer a solid product."
"Cisco Routers are quite robust. They don't malfunction, and we've had no complaints so far."
"When you set up Cisco, you can forget you have a router. Everything just works."
"Some of the most valuable features are the simplicity, cost, usability, and power. As a package, it's extremely effective."
"The performance has been good."
"It is easy to set up."
"This solution is very similar to the on-premises version making it easy to use for those who know the architect."
"The initial setup is easy."
"The beauty of MikroTik is that you have flexibility with the routing parts."
"The GUI is easy to use."
"The interface management and the user access management is pretty good."
"The initial setup can be a little bit difficult."
"If Cisco can give you one license and allow you to use all the features, that would be the best thing. We are using it only as a voice gateway, and there are other options available, but we need to procure licenses to use those options. We can use it as a security device, or we can use it for connecting the LAN side, but for that, we need all those licenses. They can provide one license and allow you to use all the features. This is my recommendation for Cisco."
"I would like to see more boundaries and better performance."
"Their software-defined paradigm requires significant improvement."
"Compared to equipment by other vendors, such as Check Point, the physical size of the units is bigger."
"The solution could be priced better."
"The only other thing we struggled with from time to time is when we were configuring access points through a controller."
"While scalability is available, it must be paid for."
"The solution does not yet offer a SaaS version."
"Stuff that I'd like to be improved is really just training and documentation because I think the feature set is full. Another improvement I'd suggest is that their new, bigger releases should be a bit more stable."
"Technical support could be better."
"The packet filtering, user log data, and user access log could all be improved."
"The port isolation and VLAN need to be improved."
"It happens that you may find your network is down, if you reboot the switch, they come up. However, sometimes, they reset themselves. That's a big issue."
"The user interface could improve and they should allow a license for IBS."
"If MikroTik had a marketing team and support team in India then it would be much easier for us to get the product, as well as support."
