MUM Europe is one of the largest MikroTik User Meetings with hundreds of network professionals from all over the continent and many more from outside it attending to discover all the latest MikroTik news and announcements.
MikroTik has been hard at work developing new and innovative products so here are all the latest announcements from MikroTik MUM Europe 2019 in Vienna!
MikroTik Audience Tri-Band Mesh Access Point
The Audience is MikroTik's first Tri-Band Mesh Wi-Fi Access Point. The Tri-band radio means that the MikroTik Audience has a 2.4GHz radio and a 5GHz radio for connecting to client devices while a second 5GHz radio establishes a dedicated backhaul for communicating with other Audience Access Points to form a mesh network.
MikroTik LoRa - 2.4GHz Access Point with LoRa Gateway
LoRa (Long Range) is a wireless communication protocol that transmits at very low data rates (less than 50kbps) across very long distances (10km+). This makes it perfect for connecting IoT and M2M devices, such as sensors and other reporting devices. The MikroTik LoRa is a LoRa gateway that enables users to integrate LoRa devices into their existing wireless networks. The MikroTik LoRa is based on a 2.4Ghz wAP and features an integrated 2.5dBi antenna with the option of attaching an external antenna if higher gain is required.
MikroTik's MQS (Mobile Quick Setup) is designed for network installers looking for a convenient way to set up radios from their mobile devices. The MikroTik MQS features a built-in battery for powering a radio and an integrated access point for connecting to your phone, tablet or laptop. MikroTik has also released a mobile management app, which can be downloaded on the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
MikroTik Cloud RouterSwitch CRS326-24S+2Q+
Last year MikroTik announced the CRS332-32S+, a Cloud Router Switch with 32 SFP+ ports. Since then, MikroTik has been revising and updating the device, and that means a new product name! The Cloud RouterSwitch CRS326-24S+2Q+ now features 24 SFP+ ports and 2 QSFP+ Ports capable of up to 40Gbps throughput! The ETA for the MikroTik Cloud RouterSwitch CRS326-24S+2Q+ is Q3 2019.
Additional New Products
Mikrotik also announced GPEN (Gigabit Passive Ethernet Network) series of products including Ethernet repeaters, Surge Protectors, PoE Injectors and Outdoor routers and Switches. Updates to existing product lines include the mUPS Pro, which upgrades the existing mUPS with a web interface for monitoring, and 48V PoE and Battery Support. The LHG line has been expanded with the introduction of the MikroTik LHG-XL-HP, a dual-band outdoor radio that can simultaneously transmit at 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz.
