What is our primary use case?

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it has better throughput than its competitors. I also like the "routerless" feature. 

What needs improvement?

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. I would like to see more integration abilities with NetGear.

For how long have I used the solution?
