We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The fabric of the solution and the management aspect are the solution's most valuable features."
"The most valuable feature is that it has better throughput than its competitors."
"The wiki page that describes the scripting and other features is very good."
"There are a lot of features to control permitting or stopping packets in the network."
"The GUI is easy to use."
"The only problem is that at the moment it's an Extreme product and Extreme is not really pushing it. They have to make up for weak innovation and I'm not sure if they want to do that."
"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."
"MikroTik is really cheap compared to the competitors."
"This product has a one-time cost and there is no licensing fee."
