Why buy a MikroTik?
1. Price. In this ratio Mikrotik has no competitors. The younger models have the functionality of the older ones (RouterOS), and the price is the same as for “home routers”.
2. Opportunities. TP-Link, Dlink, Zyxell, Linksys, etc. are simply not correct to compare because these are routers and MikroTik is a full-fledged router that can be compared with Linux or Cisco. (for understanding, MikroTik does not have a wan port and lan ports, i.e. any port can be anything, it depends on how you configure the bridge and routing)
3. Highly reliable and stable performance. When carrying out testing analyzes, and accordingly with the correct settings, Mikrotik is able to work for a long time, and at the same time do not cause any problems at all. Another important detail is the presence of a scripting language that helps in the settings for any problem, as well as the presence of WatchDog (System → Watchdog approx. If 220.127.116.11 does not ping for more than 5 minutes, we overload the router.), Which allows you to avoid problems with unnecessary freezes of the router.
4. Update, documentation. To get detailed information about any update, just go to the official Wikipedia site, where all the firmware is located. It is noteworthy that you do not need to be authorized or registered to download, unlike Cisco itself, where obtaining information is a whole problem (certification status is required, and so on).
5. RouterOS is used everywhere. This allows access to a quick change of equipment, restoration to other hardware, as well as transfer (or just an offer in the form of advice) to other users. (There is a small nuance when changing a piece of hardware with an excellent version of the OS or a different number of ports, you will have to tweak the knobs, but this is not comparable to configuring everything from scratch.)
6. Virtualization. The ability to raise RouterOS on x86 (both on a really powerful piece of hardware and in Hyper-v). And thanks to the portability of the configuration, you can deploy mikrotik anywhere.
7. Useful features: The dube, the ability to measure the speed between two microtics (tools - Bandwidth test), HotSpot, a good shaper and a bunch of external billing systems.
8. Solutions scale very well. You can choose the right one for both medium-sized businesses and small ones.
MikroTik's product line includes end-user networking devices (routers, switches, and access points), bare hardware boards without enclosures, and router software.
One of the main advantages of MikroTik products is that software features are not artificially limited by licensing; every device is capable of using every compatible feature. This enables customers to select hardware solely based on physical requirements (number of ports, processing power, etc.) without being forced into purchasing more expensive equipment or additional licenses in order to use advanced features.
RouterBOARD is a hardware platform from MikroTik, which is a line of routers running the RouterOS operating system. The various RouterBOARD options provide for a variety of application scenarios, from running wireless access points and managed network switches to firewall appliances with quality of service (QoS) features.
RouterOS is a network operating system based on Linux intended for installation on MikroTik RouterBoard routers. It can be also installed on a PC, turning it into a router with firewall, VPN server and client, and wireless access point. The system can serve as a captive portal based on a wireless access system.
RouterOS may be configured through a command line interface accessible by serial port, telnet, and Secure Shell (SSH), and through a graphical user interface available as a web-based interface (WebFig), a Microsoft Windows-based software application (Winbox), and iOS and Android apps. An application programming interface (API) permits the development of specialized applications for monitoring and management.
The operating system is distributed free of charge, but several license levels, with an increasing number of functions, are available with purchase.
