MikroTik Routers and Switches Valuable Features

TS
IT Systems Engineer at Mozolo Technologies

The pricing is a great selling point.

We find the VLANs, Load Balancing, HotSpot, Traffic Management the most valuable part of the solution.

We're very happy with what we are getting out of the solution in general. The features are good. They're comparable to other brands such as Cisco and HP.

I really have not found anything valuable or special about MikroTik routers. I have not used them a lot and have not done enough with the product to know if it is good or bad in certain areas that I can put my finger on.  

In general, I know that it is functioning and we have not had any breaches or any kind of attacks through our firewall. We have not had any downtime with it. It has been a solid performer that way.

The most valuable aspect of this solution is the combination of value for money. They're extremely cost effective, yet they provide you with an extensive feature set of things you can do across the board. Also, they're pretty reliable, as far as equipment goes.

We are a mid-sized provider and we are acquiring smaller providers. MikroTik is a brand that is used across these ISPs and we have the experience with the product within our company. There's a familiarity with the solution we appreciate. The reason that we decided to keep this brand is that it's reliable. It offers good IT Station reports. 

The solution is stable. 

The product has proven to be scalable.

The pricing is good. There's a good ratio of pricing to performance, which is why we use that product.

They are very good at providing the bandwidth for multi-tenants and multi-dwelling units. We're managing WiFi hotspots for hundreds of locations, and the speed and performance are quite there. They also have very cheap 10G products that come with really good and flexible software.  

They are way cheaper than the top brands, and they're able to deliver the same performance and capabilities.

Director at Navyug Networks

I like MikroTik's GUI. It's completely handy and easy to handle because of its GUI. Despite other brands like Cisco urging me to switch, I didn't because they don't have a GUI. This is the most comfortable thing in my project that anyone can use easily.

It's effortless to maintain MikroTik routers because both screens make it very easy in GUI mode. You can easily interact with your hardware.

I think they have very strong routers because they have multiple processors. I like its easy configuration with applications. For example, configuration with Linux, Iptables, and routing protocols.

The MikroTik Hotspot is great. My company uses the Captive Portal as a staff login to access the internet and the company portal. Via the Hotspot, my company connects to the API.

The main reason we use this solution is for the price — it's very cheap.

Personally, I know that Fortinet, Cisco, and Palo Alto are great products, but my customers are just interested in the lowest price. I can't change their minds, it's up to them.
