Learning new technology is one of the traits that make you stay ahead in the IT field. Are you a curious techie? Want to learn more about MikroTik products? Then we at SCP Academy offer online comprehensive MikroTik training designed specifically for techies like you. However, we would like you to learn a few things about MikroTik products and other aspects before taking a plunge into the world of MikroTik! So read on…
MikroTik product availability has taken an upward leap all over the world since 1996. You might be familiar with some of its products that include the most recent addition to the hardware series of MikroTik Router Board, i.e., MikroTik Audience. MikroTik Audience is a tri-band mesh Wi-Fi access point that is designed for the connected home.
Let’s now take a look at the software side of MikroTik product range i.e., the MikroTik Router OS.
MikroTik RouterOS is an unconnected Linux-based operating system that powers MikroTik RouterBOARD hardware. Following are three things to learn about the software:
- It is more than just an Operating System for routers
Although the name is MikroTik Router OS, that doesn’t mean that it is only meant for routers. It can be used as an operating system for other devices as well. This software can be installed on PCs to convert the concerned devices into dedicated routers. If you wish to access the latest software version of MikroTik, then you can visit the MikroTik Software page and use one of two installation methods i.e., CD Install and Net Install.
- It encompasses an extensive set of features
MikroTik RouterOS is packed with an extensive set of features that include, configuration, routing, firewall, VPN, MPLS, DHCP, wireless, bandwidth management, wireless access point, hotspot, proxy, Quality of Service and several tools.
- It can be tested even without a license
Yeah you read it right! What makes MikroTik different from the rest is that it allows you to test the MikroTik RouterOS software before purchasing a software license. This mode is called the Trial Mode that allows you to test the complete set of features of MikroTik Router OS for up to 24 hours. Once the 24 hours is over, you will need the license key to keep on experiencing the full functionality of the device. For that, you can register for an account and choose the option to “Purchase a Router OS license key.”
