MikroTik Cloud Router Switch Review

Easy to configure, scalable, and the GUI makes it easy to use

What is our primary use case?

We are a reseller and this is one of the products that we implement for our customers. It is a GUI-based router used as part of a corporate-level network infrastructure.

What is most valuable?

This product is easy to configure.

The GUI is easy to use.

When an update is released it is easy to download and install.

What needs improvement?

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.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this product for the last five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable product and we plan to continue selling it in the future.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We use this product in small or medium-scale corporations. We have companies with up to 10,000 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

In India, there is no distributor for MikroTik so there is no direct technical support. However, we don't need support because it is easy to use.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward. It takes perhaps ten minutes to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

We did the implementation ourselves.

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

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

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The MikroTik Cloud Router Switch is good but as a brand name, Cisco is always number one. This is why we use Cisco, rather than MikroTik, for banking applications. On the other hand, I would rate MikroTik a five-star rating for configuration, whereas I would rate Cisco with one star.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
