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.

Support for intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS) is needed. Antispam and antivirus features should be included in the future.

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.

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.

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