We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"These routers help us to provide high availability to our clusters.""Extensive support for cellular range for Wi-Fi technologies"

More HPE Enterprise Routers Pros →

"They have amazing speed and reliability, and they also provide value for money. They are pretty powerful.""The most valuable feature is the ease of use.""The solution offers very good multi-routing.""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.""The MikroTik Hotspot is great.""The stability is good.""I like MikroTik's GUI. It's completely handy and easy to handle because of its GUI. Despite other brands like Cisco urging me to switch, I didn't because they don't have a GUI. This is the most comfortable thing in my project that anyone can use easily. It's effortless to maintain MikroTik routers because both screens make it very easy in GUI mode. You can easily interact with your hardware.""I have found one of the most valuable features to be the hotspot network."

Cons
"Better management tools are needed.""Compatibility with other platforms could be improved."

More HPE Enterprise Routers Cons →

"Troubleshooting can be complex.""The CPU load is too high. This causes the Internet to lag.""There are limitations to how many users you have simultaneously.""As far as improvements, there are basically only two things I would suggest. First, I think they should provide extensive training for the new releases of products, especially in the LTE space. Second, they could spend more time ensuring that their OS releases are more stable, rather than waiting for things to fall apart on the customer's premises before they make the necessary changes.""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.""The Soft-GRE support needs to be improved.""There needs to be better support for this solution in India. We have no local support.""They should improve technical support and make direct access available to the customers."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "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."
