We don't have any licensing costs with MikroTik Cloud Router Switch because it is straight off the shelf, and licensing is included in the purchase price.

The solution is less than Cisco. In Pakistan, if you buy this cloud router, it's approximately $700 for the device. The best advantage of this device is the one-time lifetime licensing. On other solutions, you need to keep paying.

The solution is extremely affordable. The product is not more than $500. Cisco routers, in comparison, can be $1,000 or more.

The licensing cost was handled by the project manager. I can't speak to the exact cost. It's my understanding that it is less expensive than Cisco.

The price is competitive. The MikroTik distributor will give the license. Distributors offer a variety of service and support. In Juniper, there is a warranty pack and a support pack, which involves directly communicating with the OEM for this. They are charging extra, but they're still okay. If the customer wants a service and is ready to pay, they are going to get a good result. MikroTik doesn't give the same result.

When we got the product, we didn't have any subscription except for a firewall, which we paid three years in advance. In terms of the MikroTik itself, however, there aren't any subscriptions that we have to pay. We paid for these outright.

They came with the licensing when we purchased them.

The price of the solution is fair and there is a one-time license purchase only.

This product has a one-time cost and there is no licensing fee. This is unlike Cisco.

MikroTik is really cheap compared to the competitors. They are the cheapest ones in Cameroon except for Ubiquiti at the router level.

There has to be more development in the OS. It's complex for this switch as compared to others like Cisco. For NetGear and Cisco, it's easy to adapt the VLAN concept but it should be simplified for MikroTik. I would like to see more integration abilities with NetGear.

Improvements are needed with respect to some of the security, especially for VPN links between vendors other than Cisco. For example, what works between MikroTik and Cisco does not work as well between MikroTik and Fortinet. I have seen some bugs. The certification process should be improved. Have localized or regional pricing would be an improvement. I would like to see GPS tools embedded into the devices.
