Late last year MikroTik launched a new range of Netmetals supporting the new 802.11ac Technology along with cAPsman features and the move loved mAP. We are expecting more greatness in the coming year and hopefully more information will be revealed in the upcoming MUM Conference.
We shall be continuing to offer MikroTik training through 2015 including the new reworked MTCNA. Our MikroTik courses are constantly updated by our trainer to ensure you received the best and latest information. Training on the MTCWE will also be held at the MUM Conference this year.
We do a lot with PC Engines ALIX/APU boards, and this year we will continue to develop our m0n0wall and pfsense firewall solutions and the LinITX Controller. We are currently looking into stocking compatible wireless cards for the APU boards to match the wireless offerings we have on the ALIX boards. The LinITX Controller has proved popular since its launch and feedback has been taken on board and the Controller altered to achieve the best experience, we shall continue to work on, and support the existing ALIX controller over the coming months. We have also had great success in the LinITX APU controller and are currently working on some promising features including Ubiquiti HotSpot and Guest controller.
