3Com H3C Switches

As our company is growing we need to be able to upgrade our equipment. It is great for smaller companies.

MikroTik Routers and Switches

It's ideal for teaching - education on second level and for engineers' studies. As I mentioned before it's perfect or learning about routing protocols - from static, through dynamic RIP and OSPF, and on MPLS ending. For SOHO it's perfect, WLAN configuration and the possibility of HotSpot configuration for clients is a blessing.

Pros

  • Great product used on a budget.
  • It gets the job done.
  • Better switches than most competitors.
  • Routing protocols.
  • Configuring it is simple and intuitive.
  • IP addressing, and VLAN creation.
  • Multi protocol usage.
  • Mikrotik routers are full of protocols that can be enabled and configured in a quick and simple way.
  • WLAN and hotspot configuration is simple.

Cons

  • Our network is slow.
  • Feels like things are not working properly at times.
  • Old equipment.
  • Not every aspect of functionality is well described and that would be a point for improvement.
  • There could be a tool for firewall testing.
  • Open VPN should be more intuitive.

Alternatives Considered

I used Cisco and Cisco is a great product but more on the expensive side. This is a great product for smaller companies.
I used Cisco routers 2900 series, TPlink routers and switches, Planet routers, Draytek routers, Ubiqity routers, Pentagram routers and modems. Mikrotik is more flexible per cost. It has more functions

Return on Investment

  • Great price.
  • Great product for small company.
  • It was great before we expanded.
  • First of all it's cheaper than Cisco routers.
  • It has more functionality than Cisco routers that cost 4 times more.
  • It has a GUI. But it has CLI too.
