TheBrothersWISP 26 – Mikrotik Newsletter 70, Switches, upcoming conferences

Andrew Cox, Mike(Mom), Tom, Tomas, Justin Miller, and Greg talk about the meaning of life and how routing makes it just a little bit better.

I point out in the video that MTK donated money to, yet another, children’s hospital. I know they did this quietly, but people doing good things for a good reason need to be heard! Big ups to the Tik crew. I also stated that Robert Pera has been doing a lot for the Memphis community, and I admire the hell out of him for that.
Good people doing good things!

Some of the things discussed:

Cloud Hosted Router
AF3x\AF2x
Ignitenet MetroLinq
EdgeSwitch
TP-Link switches
