MikroTik Cloud Router Switch Review

Good firewall capability, and the mangle feature is useful


What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the mangle.

The firewall is very good. There are a lot of features to control permitting or stopping packets in the network.

What needs improvement?

Support for intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS) is needed.

Antispam and antivirus features should be included in the future.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with this product for about 10 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This product is not recommended for enterprise-level projects. We have approximately 50 users in our company who use it.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is okay.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have also worked with similar solutions from Cisco, Fortinet, and Juniper.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is very good. 

What other advice do I have?

I think that Mikrotik is the best solution for SOHO and small businesses because the price is very good and it includes a lot of features. For larger companies, I would recommend a different product, perhaps by Cisco.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
