Hi Guys, I am new to here and I have no experience with MikroTik devices at all. We are a company with 12 branches and I want to create a Hotspot environment for our customers. In our branches we are using Draytek Routers and I doubt if Mikrotik sxt lite5 device works with Draytek Router? Also can I use Mikrotik sxt lite5 as an Hotspot and can I easily collect clients informations (Name, e-mail etc.) for marketing purposes?
Thanks in advance!
Of course MikroTik will work with other vendors. The only questions are - what would you like to achieve and how do you want to manage that after all? Besides, I don't think SXT is the best option for Hotspot usage. It works fine when building a wireless bridge.
By the way, MikroTik has a great feature called CAPsMAN. It gives you an option to manage all your APs/HotSpots from one device. You can buy as many as you require APs (for example wAP and/or cAP) and 1 device with Level 4 license that will be cinfigured as CAP Manager. I don't know how many APs/HotSpots you want to install, and this is crucial when choosing a device that will be able to handle your configuration.
