Re: Is this the US model? RBLHGR&R11e-LTE6

Yes you're right I mistook it for the same device, their LTE6 devices just go by bands not international or US. Just verify the bands you need are enabled in the device you posted about (RBLHGR&R11e-LTE6) and it should work for you. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200222/cc2a35215b33889de836a08be...

Sounds like you want station bridge, are you wanting to use the same SSID?

Thinking about it more, are you trying to have the MikroTik device bridged to your current network and using the same SSID of the router?

With that in mind, I was trying to see what it would cost to switch and what the operational differences would be. Looks like I will be sticking Unifi for now. MikroTik doesn't really have anything to compete directly against the AC Pro (I guess), the cAP AC is close but not really apples to apples.

You could disable the wireless on the Tik and use an external AP, then you have all the great features of RouterOS with wireless that doesn't give you issues.

A console generation lasts typically for 7 years. Even 10GbE makes sense. They are a fast internet marketing opportunity for ISPs by putting replicas at the edge.

What makes you want to choose those over the hAP ac²?

With the hAP ac² you get better wireless (dual-band/w AC), much better CPU performance, in a package that isn't noticeably more expensive.

All RouterOS devices (with multiple Ethernet ports) can do what you want.
