Mobile Wifi with GPS Tracking using Mikrotik's LtAP

We have always loved the idea of being able to provide basic internet services to our own company vehicles as well as being able to track them with one device. This is how we did it.

MikroTik and Behaviour based IDS

This presentation will illustrate to users how, using their MikroTiks they can provide effective and proactive IDS that will address known and unknown threats as well as zero day attacks, identify and kill ransomware connections and much more.

BGP vs OSPF vs RIP vs MME - Battle of the Dynamic Protocols

MikroTik provides a number of dynamic routing protocols that can be deployed to build robust, fault tolerant layer 3 networks. This presentation will explore the fundamental differences between these protocols, and help provide guidelines on when to deploy them and why.
