We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features for us are NAT, ATS, server capabilities, VPN tunneling, and management."
"When we started, the connection was amazing for the 100G between the switches and the co-switch. What the students typically use for school is a maximum is 40 so they now have faster technology."
"The configuration syntax makes it easy for us to configure the device and perform troubleshooting when needed."
"I have been able to connect the solution to many platforms such as Windows, Apple, and Android."
"Overall we have found the solution to be satisfactory."
"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."
"This solution is very similar to the on-premises version making it easy to use for those who know the architect."
"In the next release of this solution, I would like to see better bandwidth management, more granular web filtering, and portal authentication."
"In my country we don't have Huawei technology, we only have Huawei routers for ISP. There is no agent for Huawei in Egypt."
"Essentially, they need to open their licensing model such that when a customer buys a device, they have a full view of all of the available licenses for it."
"We have found we have to restart the routers or reconfigured them a lot of the time, this issue should improve. The quality of the hardware needs to be more durable."
"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."
"Huawei offers a cheaper enterprise router solution than Cisco."
"These routers are not too expensive."
"There is no licence for this solution, but the solution could be cheaper."
"The price of the solution is fair."
"MikroTik is really cheap compared to the competitors."
"This product has a one-time cost and there is no licensing fee."
"The price of the solution is fair and there is a one-time license purchase only."
