We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This product is a one-time purchase."
"In our last project, we used two hundred units and the price was approximately 500 Shekels ($140 USD)."
"There is no licensing fee in addition to the hardware, but we do pay an annual fee for support."
"This product is cheaper than competing products by other vendors."
"There are not any external or hidden costs."
"The price-performance is great."
"MikroTik is very cost-effective and quite good for the price. It performs very well. For one of our customers, the existing setup comprises Cisco Catalyst switches, and it is about 10 to 15 years old. We're looking into upgrading in a cost-effective way to get the performance and yet still be at par with the quality and expectations that customers have from Cisco. Price-wise, Cisco is really expensive, and customers are expecting something different than Cisco so that they can save on IT costs. They don't have the same budget that they had before when they installed Cisco products. That's why they're looking for a solution that can provide performance and features without too much money or investment. We're looking at some alternative brands, such as NETGEAR and MikroTik, to support our proposal."
"The main reason we use this solution is for the price — it's very cheap."
