SwOS vs RouterOS considering switch-only functionality

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:03 am

I have a question.

Considering "refresh" of SwOS and that it's going to be available on this new hardcore 160 gbps switch - is it going to be new "flagship" OS for switch functionality? I mean - if I'm going to get CRS with RouterOS is it going to provide all functions available on CSS with SwOS, or is SwOS going to implement more L2 functionality than ROS in near future making ROS more router oriented than switch oriented?

Ultimately it's question if ROS based switches like CRS 226 won't get inferior solution to SwOS based ones in near future. Simplicity of config doesn't matter.

I would expect the reverse situation: ROS will provide full functionality, with additional SW supported functions, while SWOS will be a kind of "light" OS providing more basic HW supported switching-only functions, with a more easy to use management interface.

sw0s to be very useful should have a way to support:

vlan 1
tagged 1-4
untagged 5-18
excluded 19-24
