I think the Tolly Group report should have included standard Mikrotik response: "You're doing it all wrong so we are not to blame for this performance"
Irony or not, but you are more right than you think!!!
Well, that Tolly Group have their hands bend in some interesting angle - i have RB1100AHx2 in my network serving 100+ customers with some routing, firewall, queues on it and my customers are getting 1,6Gbps throughput out of it every evening. That Tolly Group manage to get only 1,313Gbps in their test, in lab environment
It looks to me like nothing more than cheap marketing!!
They probably spend too much money on video advertisement and had to fake test results
With great knowledge comes great responsibility, because of ability to recognize id... incompetent people much faster.
