Hello,

thanks for your reply. Can you give us some details? Maybe a timeframe? A way to test this, we have to roll out Access Points, maybe Wireless Controller feature can help us...

Regards

There are many of us waiting for this feature and I guess MikroTik management knows that this is important from business point of view (tens of devices sold to one location in one batch). I have many clients interested in covering whole building with WiFi but they do not want to pay +1000$ for just-a-controller and 300$ for every thin Access Point (radio and ethernet port :) ) device.
I think that MikroTik will finish polishing v6 and then they will introduce controller functionality. We have to wait patiently... :)

I have no clue but I would speculate that it comes in v7.

I hope I'm wrong though.

I too think this will be in v7.

And to add a little more speculation, I think v7 beta and the new features will be announced at US MUM. :D

I hope you are wrong too... v7 is at least 2 years away... + the time to kill all the bugs with new version... I can't wait that long, I risk loosing customers to competition. :shock:

I am looking forward for controller either, except that I am afraid that my current Mikrotik infrastructure*) won't be upgradable to the version I may need :-(

I'm starting to take the "controller promise" for a little dirty business trick to
a) attract people so they keep buying Mk
b) when WLAN controller is released, they have to replace the whole infrastructure or upgrade a mass of licenses.

That's why I am considering move to Ubiquiti

Maybe I am too suspicious? Maybe it is all just behind the corner?



*) almost 100 units upgradable just to to version 6, purchased with foolish idea that in 2013 the controller must come in just months
