Even the cheapest access points given as freebies with ISP contracts now support it. MikroTik is the last in the WiFi world to add these.
When we are unlucky, they will put the support for this only in their wave2 driver which will run (almost) only on new devices.
(due to the silly 16M flash used in almost all current devices)
Yeah agree, they are common in consumer and corporate, high end and low end gear. That is the point of open standards after all.
In my opinion we really need to understand
(a) What MikroTik's views / intentions are on these things; perhaps they do not agree with some standards as they have alternatives, maybe there are roadblocks to their adoption
(b) MikroTik to share as much roadmap as they have e.g. what are they working on but dont have an ETA for yet, and what is coming up and [very roughly] when
I was really pleased to see that the new WiFi Wave 2 driver supports WPA3, OWE, 802.11w, MU-MIMO and beamforming. The limited range of compatable hardwareis a concern however... so it would help to understand if they anticipate this eventually being supported on the existing range as the code matures and is made more efficient. Or if we will need to replace our WAP's to gain them.
Let me be clear there are lots of great features in RouterOS and the hardware. I'm personally heavily invested in MikroTik, both in terms of buying equipment and time spent perfecting it (my knowledge, scripting, config).
Besides WPA3, OWE, 802.11w, MU-MIMO and beamforming. I would love to understand their thoughts on standards like 802.11k/r/v, 802.11ax. And extending RouterOS to be able to create directories, SHA2 hash strings or files etc...
