MikroTik Routers and Switches Primary Use Case

TamsanqaSemela
IT Systems Engineer at Mozolo Technologies
We use MikroTik both in our company and clients. Even extended to our household clients. MikroTik devices offer you similar features you'll normally get from high priced devices like Cisco and HP, however at a fraction of the costs. This works very nicely with us since our clients are mainly small and medium. The device price doesn't dictate whether the client gets a solution. VLANs, L3 Routing, Load Balancing, HotSpot are amongst some of the features we normally use in many of our deployments. View full review »

We use this product to route traffic with dynamic routing protocols like BGP. We also use it for filtering traffic and making network translations to provide access to services that are behind it. In this regard, it acts as a firewall. It hosts a lot of B2B sessions with our internal and external peers. View full review »

Network Security Engineer at a outsourcing company with 1,001-5,000 employees
I have worked more with the MikroTik Routers, as opposed to their switching products. We use this solution to route traffic in our network. For example, if one group is experiencing a slow connection then we can re-route the traffic. This is possible because we have multiple links on our premises. View full review »
