- Ubiquiti has acknowledged that they are not trying to compete in the router market and that MikroTik is the preferred solution (Dec 2010 conference in San Jose).
- Some WISP customers say that having the router and radio on the same device is a disadvantage: So much processing activity may make the device prone to “hang” (need a reboot)
- However there are WISPs are using MikroTik for both routing and WiFi with no problems
- MikroTik’s RB1100AH (and RB1100AHx2) routers give you control over individual users’ bandwidth allocation: You cannot get this sort of control with Ubiquiti gear
Ubiquiti GUI interface is much easier than MikroTik, to configure: Any network engineer can quickly figure it out without going to a class. MikroTik requires either specific training in RouterOS or a lot of home-study.Author: George Hardesty
