Pros
"I have been able to connect the solution to many platforms such as Windows, Apple, and Android.""The configuration syntax makes it easy for us to configure the device and perform troubleshooting when needed.""When we started, the connection was amazing for the 100G between the switches and the co-switch. What the students typically use for school is a maximum is 40 so they now have faster technology.""Overall we have found the solution to be satisfactory."

"The most valuable feature is the ease of use.""They have amazing speed and reliability, and they also provide value for money. They are pretty powerful.""This equipment is resilient and available at a good price.""The stability is good.""We've enjoyed the fact that it has very good performance.""The solution offers very good multi-routing.""The pricing is very reasonable. It's not too expensive.""The most valuable aspect of this solution is the combination of value for money. They're extremely cost effective, yet they provide you with an extensive feature set of things you can do across the board. Also, they're pretty reliable, as far as equipment goes."

Cons
"In my country we don't have Huawei technology, we only have Huawei routers for ISP. There is no agent for Huawei in Egypt.""Essentially, they need to open their licensing model such that when a customer buys a device, they have a full view of all of the available licenses for it.""We have found we have to restart the routers or reconfigured them a lot of the time, this issue should improve. The quality of the hardware needs to be more durable."

More Huawei Enterprise Routers Cons →

"This product could offer better integration with VPNs.""MikroTik does not have a wireless solution. If they created a high-performance wireless solution we would deploy it in our infrastructure.""It could be more scalable. Product awareness could also be better. There's a lack of awareness when it comes to MikroTik. People only know about Cisco and others, and they won't rely on MikroTik. This is primarily because of hardware limitations. While this product is good economically, it's unsuitable for high-end projects. In the next release, I want this product to be more compatible.""Better security is always better. If they can continue to improve in this area, that would be ideal.""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 batch management could be improved.""There needs to be better support for this solution in India. We have no local support.""The Soft-GRE support needs to be improved."

  • "The price of the solution is fair."
  • More Huawei Enterprise Routers 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."
