Cons
"It's not evolving as quickly as we would like it to.""The solution is far too unstable. It's completely unreliable."

More ExtremeRouting Cons →

"They need to create a license for IBS. I have a lot of clients that have spam on their networks.""There are limitations to how many users you have simultaneously.""They can improve the way the user interface is laid out. Their user interface is slightly geeky. There is more than one way to do the same thing in the user interface, and they need to work on that.""The solution needs to offer better documentation.""This product could offer better integration with VPNs.""Sometimes, when I need to reboot or change software, MikroTik crashes.""MikroTik does not have a wireless solution. If they created a high-performance wireless solution we would deploy it in our infrastructure.""They should improve technical support and make direct access available to the customers."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We have no issues with the price."
  • More ExtremeRouting Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "This product is cheaper than competing products by other vendors."
  • "There are not any external or hidden costs."
  • "The price-performance is great."
  • "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."
  • "The main reason we use this solution is for the price — it's very cheap."
  • "Pricing is not an issue."
  • "The pricing is very reasonable and is one of the main selling points for MikroTik devices."
  • "When you buy a license, it is for life and you don't need to buy another one every year."
