Cons
"I would like an option to create different networks within the switch.""It should be more stable, and it should have good integration with the cloud. It should support configuration, supervision, and control through the cloud.""They could be more stable. They were not as resistant as Cisco. After some time, some of them failed. This could be because we import quite a lot of products from different horizons, so there is no guarantee of quality. In Africa, these products don't always directly come from the manufacturer. We get these products from the Middle East or Asia. Therefore, you cannot be sure that the quality is exactly similar to what you have in Europe or America.""We have issues with the stability.""The solution needs better local support."

"There has to be more development in the OS. It's complex for this switch as compared to others like Cisco. 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."
