Is there any physical advantage to running SWoS on a CSR-317 switch rather than RouterOS?
Apart from the obvious differences in the management interface, does one or the other utilise the hardware better?
I’m my general opinion, you want a router, buy a router; if you want a switch, buy a switch. In this case, use the OS that applies with the same principle. On my three routers at home, the closest I get to having any of them function as a switch is to use VLANs to get more LANs onto a finite number of Ethernet ports.
I don't think it is different for this particular type of switch. (CRS 300 series)Yep, I did buy a switch .. just wondering if one of the 2 available underlying management sofware applications makes any of the hardware functionality of that switch work better than the other.
