For NetGear and Cisco, it's easy to adapt the VLAN concept but it should be simplified for MikroTik.""Improvements are needed with respect to some of the security, especially for VPN links between vendors other than Cisco.""Antispam and antivirus features should be included in the future.""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.""The user interface could improve and they should allow a license for IBS."
