MikroTik is suited for large companies that require advanced distributions in terms of contracted bandwidth, and in the same way, allows a single device to specify filtering and firewall rules without acquiring an additional device. There is a range for small companies which is more economical and less robust, but in case it's not necessary, such a strict control over the data consumption of the company is not a feasible solution.
I love this switch for access and aggregate, especially due to the lack of needing reboots. [Other systems require this] reliable and stable platform.
Affordable, it has more features compared to other brand at the same price.Widely available, by today it's easy to obtained one, even online retailers sell it.Highly customizable, you may write a powerful script to enhance the function.Flexible, you can make different configuration approach based on you needs.
They are relatively easy to configure and to maintain.They have all of the high-end configuration capabilities as Cisco switches.The switches have excellent performance and reliability.
Some of the wiki articles have not been updated or are not accurate enough. We spent a couple of days trying to find an example of implementing a mobile IPSec client solution. But once this has been implemented, it has been solid (always worked). A bigger community would help, and I am finding it hard to find the time to contribute to these articles.
Licensing for the 10GB ports is a bit pricey, but that was 5 years ago, so things may have changedThe CLI commands are slightly different than typical Cisco commandsTheir rack mounting was not the prettiest in the world
Almost perfect, despite some issue that need to be addressed by the manufacturer. If this issue has been addressed, a full 10 mark will be given.
There is no SOC, NOC, where you can contact to try to resolve any difficulties. The problems that these devices have are solved largely through the community, with workaround alternatives, or if the support team responds to a request, the response times are too high for the current needs of technological communications.
Cisco Routers are one of the best in the market, however they are also very expensive and not suitable for a small deployment or any deployment which requires just a couple of routers. MikroTik on the other hand are less expensive and provides many features that you require for a small scale deployment. they fit in with the budget and do what you need them to.
The switching holds up well against HP, Extreme, Juniper, et. al at the edge. Cost is also a huge factor, and played a part in the purchase. Not just for the switches themselves, but also optics can be purchased at a discount. Service delivery has been fantastic, and in 3 years I've not had to replace any of the brocade switches I've purchased.
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.
Equipment just runsSometimes past EOL/EOSFirmwares just work
