Pricing Advice

What users are saying about MikroTik Routers and Switches pricing:
  • "There are not any external or hidden costs."
  • "The pricing is very reasonable and is one of the main selling points for MikroTik devices."
  • "There is no licensing fee in addition to the hardware, but we do pay an annual fee for support."
  • "MikroTik is very cost-effective and quite good for the price. It performs very well. For one of our customers, the existing setup comprises Cisco Catalyst switches, and it is about 10 to 15 years old. We're looking into upgrading in a cost-effective way to get the performance and yet still be at par with the quality and expectations that customers have from Cisco. Price-wise, Cisco is really expensive, and customers are expecting something different than Cisco so that they can save on IT costs. They don't have the same budget that they had before when they installed Cisco products. That's why they're looking for a solution that can provide performance and features without too much money or investment. We're looking at some alternative brands, such as NETGEAR and MikroTik, to support our proposal."

Good pricing with good features that are comparable to Cisco

Pros and Cons

  • "We're very happy with what we are getting out of the solution in general. The features are good. They're comparable to other brands such as Cisco and HP."
  • "The solution's website isn't that good. When I go to it, I can't find what I'm looking for. However, if I go to a third party's website, I can easily find the information."

What is our primary use case?

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.

How has it helped my organization?

Costs saving and expansion of our product portfolio as a result of those features offered by mikrotik, but would have to pay for licenses from other providers. Dude also improved network management and service, which our re-skilled team enjoy. Many MikroTik devices can be powered from 12VDC and this is also a cost saving on electricity consumption and allow our deployments in areas where solar solutions are offered, extending our footprint.

What is most valuable?

The pricing is a great selling point.

We find the VLANs, Load Balancing, HotSpot, Traffic Management the most valuable part of the solution.

We're very happy with what we are getting out of the solution in general. The features are good. They're comparable to other brands such as Cisco and HP.

What needs improvement?

We've had difficulties allocating different hubs with different IPs. At times, some users use it on one range and can access computers on another range. We thought isolation would help, but it hasn't. When you assign IP addresses to ports, people can still access those ports, and that's really frustrating.

The solution doesn't offer very good documentation. When we had questions around isolation and allocating different hubs and IPs, we couldn't find any verifiable answers.

The solution's website isn't that good. When I go to it, I can't find what I'm looking for. However, if I go to a third party's website, I can easily find the information.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution for ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Very stable, not major failures reported at this stage.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a very scalable solution. It's not really an issue if companies need to scale. However, the issue of port isolation and the difficulties we have might ultimately affect scaling as we have to maintain security and right now we're struggling with that. When you scale, you compromise security. It's a double-edged sword.

We have about 15 users on the particular solution currently. However, these are solutions that will be deployed across different clients.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never contacted technical support directly. I have gone to their support website, which, I feel, doesn't have enough information or documentation. If you compare it to Cisco, Cisco has got more support online; you don't even have to call them.

Much as MicroTik is cheaper than Cisco, and you can see a difference in support quality. Cisco does offer a lot of support on their website. When you go to Cisco, you get answers to all types of issues. With MicroTik, I need to go look at private third-party websites. That's why I feel their technical support is a disappointment.

You can try calling or writing emails, however, you don't get responses. In the end, you have to fiddle around and try things yourself. This is not sustainable. A client will eventually not mind so much if they need to pay a bit more to get proper service.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We've previously used Cisco, which was much more expensive.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. Deployment typically takes about one hour if it's just a basic initial layer that needs to be implemented.

What about the implementation team?

In-house, it was more of a trial and error but finally got it. We still and constantly improving our know how but we will get there.

What was our ROI?

The costs of hardware reduces the ROI dramatically. Same way the Costs of Ownership does.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing of the solution is quite reasonable.

What we do is we buy Level Four devices, so we don't have to buy license supported versions.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We came across MikroTik and immediately fell in love with it

What other advice do I have?

We use the solution and we provide services to clients as well. It's much cheaper than when we used Cisco and other devices. We're a reseller and solutions provider.

I do advise people to use the solution, because of the price and features. The more you learn is the more you realize how valuable MikroTik devices are.

One thing I would mention to others is that MikroTik is on Linux, but there's nothing like WinBox for Linux, or what you might call a Linux box. You need to do something that looks like WinBox, because if you're using Ubuntu, you will need to use WinBox and there isn't one for Linux. Not everybody uses Windows and many people, especially technical people, are moving away from Windows. 

The solution is a good product and it has improved since the first time we used it. It's just support that is really lacking.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd rate it higher if technical support was better.

It seems to run on its own without maintenance but is old, slow, and will elsewhere for replacement.

Pros and Cons

  • "We have not had any downtime with it. It has been a solid performer that way."
  • "It is slow, old and unfriendly."

What is our primary use case?

MikroTik is our main router for incoming and outgoing traffic throughout the system architecture.  

What is most valuable?

I really have not found anything valuable or special about MikroTik routers. I have not used them a lot and have not done enough with the product to know if it is good or bad in certain areas that I can put my finger on.  

In general, I know that it is functioning and we have not had any breaches or any kind of attacks through our firewall. We have not had any downtime with it. It has been a solid performer that way.  

What needs improvement?

My first impressions of the MikroTik router I have are that it is old and slow. I would like to see a higher throughput in the switch. The throughput speeds are killing us. Our VPN speeds are not up to par. MikroTik may make some routers and switches that do have higher throughput, but the models that we are using are not in that group of products.  

The security itself is lacking. For instance, most later model routers have web filtering so we can filter out websites and types. I would like to just be able to go in and say that I want to block out porn sites, or I want to block out hate speech — whatever the case may be. I would like to do that and get it done in an expeditious manner and have it work as expected. There is nothing like that type of simplicity and functionality in this router.  

So, the two main things that I look for in a router — speed and filtering by classification — are two things that I did not see. It is working, so I kind of leave it alone for right now because I do not really have the time to figure out what is making it work at all.  

I do know that the interface is very archaic-looking. It does not seem like the ease-of-use was a major concern in the development of the product. It is not very good in the area of user-friendly.  

Another problem that I do not like about the MikroTik routers is that I have to use a specific program called Winbox to access it and configure it. I should not be limited to accessing the configuration using just one tool.  

For how long have I used the solution?

I have actually been able to use and access it for maybe three weeks now. It has been at the company for several years.  

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

One thing I can say for the product is that it has been stable. There has not even been downtime. I checked the uptime on it and it has been up almost a year without having to reset or do anything of that nature for maintenance. So by whatever magic, it is stable.  

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I would say that these products do not have much potential for scalability. They are limited to what is in the hardware now without doing a firmware update. But one thing is for certain, any firmware update is not going to change our throughput speed. The actual hardware itself is limiting us.  

We have approximately 52 employees passively using these products.  

How are customer service and technical support?

With a year of uptime, we obviously have not had to use the tech support at all. On the day when the thing falls apart and I do not know a thing about it, that is when I will find out how good the support is as well.  

How was the initial setup?

Because the product has been here for several years, I was not involved in the installation. I assume it was not much different than other routers and switches.  

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are not any external or hidden costs. The company bought the products and put them in. They are not paying for any kind of maintenance or anything of that nature at this point.  

What other advice do I have?

My main advice to people considering this solution based on my experience is that I would suggest looking for other robust solutions. I know they are out there because I have used them.  

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best. I would rate MikroTik routers and switches as a six-out-of-ten. It seems to be working by its own devices but there is just too much old, slow, and unfriendly about them.

Reasonably priced and the bandwidth management capabilities are good

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is its bandwidth management ability."
  • "They should improve technical support and make direct access available to the customers."

What is our primary use case?

I am a solution provider and I deploy this product for my customers. Primarily, it is used for last-mile access. When I deploy it in an enterprise environment, It is normally for bandwidth control.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is its bandwidth management ability.

What needs improvement?

The routers that this vendor makes are quite small and I think that they should make their products such that they conform to what the industry is used to. Not that it matters from a technical perspective, but often, customers see the size of the router and they think that it is used for a small environment because of its size. They look at the router and because it doesn't look like the Huawei or Cisco models, they think that it is underpowered because of the size. If they changed the external look and feel of the products to match what the enterprise environment is used to, then it would be good. Again, in no way does it affect the performance. Rather, it's just the perception.

They should improve technical support and make direct access available to the customers.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with MikroTik Routers and Switches for approximately 15 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

On a scale of one to five, I would rate stability a four.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable solution. Although, if you deviate too much from your original device then you will need to change it. If, for example, the scope changes significantly from the initial setup, then you might have to change your device.

Essentially, if the change in scale is too large then you might need to also scale your device accordingly.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is not very good, as it is usually done through third-parties. You don't have direct access to MikroTik themselves. Most of the support we get is through forums.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also work with similar products from Juniper, Cisco, and Huawei.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is complex and you need to have a deep understanding in order to deploy it. The time it takes to deploy will depend on what you're configuring, in terms of what technologies. Typically, if it's just for connectivity, in usually 20 to 30 minutes you should be able to get MikroTik up and running. But, if it's compliance and other things then it may take a while longer.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is very reasonable and is one of the main selling points for MikroTik devices.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing MikroTik Routers is to make sure that they have the requisite toolsets onboard to manage the devices so that they don't run into problems. Otherwise, it is a good and inexpensive product to use.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Stable with good routing features and a large amount of online documentation

Pros and Cons

  • "The pricing is very reasonable. It's not too expensive."
  • "The initial setup can be a bit difficult. The configuration can take a lot of time."

What is most valuable?

The routing features are the solution's most valuable aspects.

What needs improvement?

Next year, we are planning to buy a hardware firewall from Sophos. The firewall and the VPN features in MikroTik are a little bit hard to set and are not user-friendly in terms of configuring those features. 

The protection of the web servers, VPN, and spam mail management, will be better in the Sophos model which we want to buy. We'll still use MikroTik for routing between our objects, however, for the main firewall features and VPN features, we want to use something more specific for this job.

There's a new VPN protocol called WireGuard. It's very good to implement MikroTik in the router as firmware. It is more configurable, with WireGuard. It's very practical.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution maybe for five or six years at this point. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is extremely stable. We don't have issues with crashing. There aren't bugs or glitches. It's good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is very scalable. If a company needs to expand it, they can do so easily.

Ultimately, the whole company is using it as it s is the main router for distributing internet services.

How are customer service and technical support?

We don't use technical support. If we need to troubleshoot, we tend to get our answers from the internet. We have access to forums and we have a lot of local technical support and knowledge. It's not official technical support. It's from the providers.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup can be a bit difficult. The configuration can take a lot of time. We only have one person in our company that can do this. It's somewhat impractical. If he's not at work, we can run into issues.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is very reasonable. It's not too expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We're currently looking to replace some aspects of MikroTik with Sophos and will use Sophos next year as the main firewall.

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer. We don't have a business relationship with the company.

Originally, we had little MikroTik routers installed at first. Afterward, we bought a cloud core router and we've had that at this point for six or seven years.

We use the solution both at our company and for our clients.

I'd advise new users to take some time and learn about the configurations. They need to be prepared for a bit of a learning curve when it comes to implementation. However, after that, it's not a problem to use it.

Overall, I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Scalable with good pricing and excellent reliability

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is stable."
  • "Better security is always better. If they can continue to improve in this area, that would be ideal."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for the internet.

What is most valuable?

We are a mid-sized provider and we are acquiring smaller providers. MikroTik is a brand that is used across these ISPs and we have the experience with the product within our company. There's a familiarity with the solution we appreciate. The reason that we decided to keep this brand is that it's reliable. It offers good IT Station reports. 

The solution is stable. 

The product has proven to be scalable.

The pricing is good. There's a good ratio of pricing to performance, which is why we use that product.

What needs improvement?

Better security is always better. If they can continue to improve in this area, that would be ideal.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution for a couple of years at this point. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution has proven to be very stable. There are no bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. The performance is consistently very good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability has been excellent. If a company needs to expand it out, it's not a problem. They can do so. 

A lot of our work is B2B with mid-sized clients that might have dozens of users. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I've never directly dealt with technical support. I cannot speak to how helpful or responsive they are. I don't have the direct experience to be able to comment. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We also have experience using Cisco (for more demanding installations) and Huawei. Our company tends to use Huawei in B2C situations. 

How was the initial setup?

It's my understanding that the installation process is quite straightforward. It's not too complex or difficult. 

We have administrators and technicians that can handle deployments. We are doing remote installations. We have one technician usually on-premise. They physically connect the device and another technician remotely configures the device. We have some configuration templates. It's quite easy and quick for our team to deploy everything.

What about the implementation team?

We can handle the deployment for customers.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is very reasonable. It's not too expensive. 

I don't handle licensing costs. I'm not sure how payments are set up and whether a company would have to pay monthly or yearly.

What other advice do I have?

I'm not an IT guy. I'm a business product manager. I'm more of a product or marketing guy. Therefore, I'm not overly technical. 

We're service providers for a variety of organizations. 

I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten. We're pretty happy with the product.

I would recommend the solution to other organizations.

Traffic classification is helpful, provides convenient debugging features, and is flexible

Pros and Cons

  • "The flexible IP firewall and IP network address translation make it very easy to give access to internal services."
  • "I would like to see a cluster feature added, where multiple devices can be configured and managed as one. One is in a standby state while the other is active, and if one fails then the other takes over."

What is our primary use case?

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.

How has it helped my organization?

MikroTik provides us a quick way to give access to internal services from outside of our network, and a way to manage those services.

What is most valuable?

This solution offers features that make it convenient for debugging.

Traffic classification is a very convenient feature.

The flexible IP firewall and IP network address translation make it very easy to give access to internal services. 

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a cluster feature added, where multiple devices can be configured and managed as one. One is in a standby state while the other is active, and if one fails then the other takes over.

The stability can be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using a MikroTik router for seven or eight years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is not very stable. I would rate stability at seven out of ten.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good and we have 50 or 60 users, in addition to perhaps five technical staff who can connect devices and configure them.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support responds very quickly. However, we very often catch bugs that they are not aware of, which is bad. MikroTik should be finding these bugs itself.

We are happy with the communication from technical support, but they should improve with respect to testing and releasing updates.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward and easy. It will take several hours to set up and have it work properly.

What about the implementation team?

The implementation was done by my team.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is no licensing fee in addition to the hardware, but we do pay an annual fee for support.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution for those who don't need a very stable solution. You will not have zero-downtime provided by MikroTik. Also, if you need clustered routers then this solution will not work. However, if you are willing to update several times a month with several minutes of downtime while upgrading and rebooting, then it will be fine.

The biggest lesson that I have learned from using this solution is to write the network plan out before implementing changes. Then, go only by the steps of the plan, and do not deviate.

Overall, it is a very good solution with a lot of features.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

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

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 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.

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs improvement?

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.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for about eight years. 

How was the initial setup?

You need to learn how to use the software and run MikroTik Router OS or Switch OS. You have to be familiar with all these. If you're a network person, it's very easy for you to set it up. It is pretty much similar to setting up HPE, Juniper, Cisco, or NETGEAR. It's not for novice users. There's a learning curve.

Our team has to get trained and certified in MikroTik.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

MikroTik is very cost-effective and quite good for the price. It performs very well.

For one of our customers, the existing setup comprises Cisco Catalyst switches, and it is about 10 to 15 years old. We're looking into upgrading in a cost-effective way to get the performance and yet still be at par with the quality and expectations that customers have from Cisco.

Price-wise, Cisco is really expensive, and customers are expecting something different than Cisco so that they can save on IT costs. They don't have the same budget that they had before when they installed Cisco products. That's why they're looking for a solution that can provide performance and features without too much money or investment. We're looking at some alternative brands, such as NETGEAR and MikroTik, to support our proposal.

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.

Cost-effective for layer three traffic, but it is not stable and the support needs to be improved

Pros and Cons

  • "The best part about MikroTik Routers is the price."
  • "The biggest thing that needs improvement is the support."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use our MikroTik devices as layer three routers.

What is most valuable?

The best part about MikroTik Routers is the price.

What needs improvement?

The biggest thing that needs improvement is the support. There are lots of bugs but you can find workarounds for these. However, without support for professional use, you don't know when it fails and why it fails. You have to troubleshoot on your own.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using MikroTik Routers for two or three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is poor because it's dropping packets. As you control it through the GUI, the device is starting to drop packets, so it is not stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is hard for me to judge at this point.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is bad overall. However, when I contacted them last, the answer to that question was straightforward. It was a little bit confusing because they were talking about CPU queues versus hardware queues, and my English is not perfect, but I did get a straightforward answer after the second email.

How was the initial setup?

If you read the manual and the documentation carefully, and also research the Wiki support sites, the setup can be quite straightforward.

The length of time for deployment depends on the type of scenario and what you want to do.

To have a working solution it can take weeks. You have to test all of the limits because if you don't know your limits then you don't know your product area. For example, can a device be placed when serving a 1G internet? Knowing the limits and testing the limits is a time-consuming activity. It can take one to two weeks depending on what you are testing.

What about the implementation team?

The implementation can be done without the help of a consultant. You can do it on your own.

What other advice do I have?

The technical features in MikroTik are not mentionable because it is a low-cost solution. There is no service, support, or proper training. We are using them because our competitors are using them, and we have to stay competitive.

The only real value of MikroTik is the price and I would not recommend this solution for any other reason. If you can get another device from a bigger company at a similar price then I would do that because the support is going to be better. Proper support is important.

I would rate this solution a five out of ten.
