Hello all,
Newbie here, I am planning to get either CRS328-24P switch, I understand Router OS has licenses to be purchased for different levels of availability for L3 features.
Just to be sure, does the switch come with any license out of the box?

Product spec page states, that the device comes bundled with "license level 5". You can read about different license levels here.

BTW, all Routerboard devices come with licenses included, only level varies. It is necessary to purchase license for using ROS x86 (running on generic PC hardware) or ROS CHR (running in a virtual machine).

Just remember: The CRS is a switch, not a router. Yes, it runs RoS. Yes, it can route packages, if You want to do it. But no, its routing capacity is very very low, and will not get even close to wirespeed.

If you want to use it as a switch, it will perform at wirespeed levels.

Thank you guys,
I do notice specs say it has but just not sure if it's bundled.
Also performance I've seen many people discuss around it, well received, thanks to you two.
