A cheaper solution that delivers the same performance and capabilities as the top brands

What is our primary use case?

We manage wide area networks for our clients nationwide. We run a data center and provide internet services. We use MikroTik for our network operation centers. We also manage WiFi for hospitalities and a lot of multi-dwelling units. We have experience in deploying MikroTik, NETGEAR, and HP products.

Pros and Cons

  • "They are very good at providing the bandwidth for multi-tenants and multi-dwelling units. We're managing WiFi hotspots for hundreds of locations, and the speed and performance are quite there. They also have very cheap 10G products that come with really good and flexible software. They are way cheaper than the top brands, and they're able to deliver the same performance and capabilities."
  • "They lack the extended warranty for the equipment. They only provide a warranty for one year as compared to the other vendors who offer a warranty for three years, five years, and lifetime, etc."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten for the reliability and the performance that you get out of it. I wouldn't rate it a ten because of the warranty limitation. There is also a learning curve to be able to successfully manage it, but once you do that, it's going to work wonders. It's also not that expensive.

Excellent stability and reliability with an easy initial setup

What is our primary use case?

I use the router to connect to the internet.

Pros and Cons

  • "The stability of the solution's router is its most valuable feature."
  • "The configuration needs improvement. Most routers, like HP or Aruba, use a UI interface. Those solutions are similar and uniform. It's easier for us compared to Cisco because with Cisco you are not using normal commands. They need to enhance the UI to make it more usable."

What other advice do I have?

I'd recommend the solution. Once you plug it in, you can basically forget about it because there are never any issues. It just works, and that's great. I'd rate it ten out of ten.
