Wyma Engineering previously used a single MikroTik router in their Czech office, a popular brand in the Czech Republic but not well known in New Zealand in the early 2010’s.
As their business grew it became evident that this device needed an upgrade.

They had experienced excellent reliability and flexibility with this single piece of hardware, so they made the decision to expand the brand into all of our offices.

What do Wyma Engineering like about the product/service?

The MikroTik solution has enabled them to implement a much more simplified deployment model compared to their previous brand of hardware. This, in turn, has led to better reliability and faster implementation times.

Recently, they moved into a purpose-built factory and upgraded all their optical and wired networking hardware with MikroTik products, including switching, routing, and PoE switching. The vast array of products offering SFP+ and QSFP+ support was a key reason for their choice of MikroTik. It allowed them to fully utilize their optical investment throughout the entire premises.

Key benefits of this transition include:
• A simplified licensing model
• Intuitive interfaces and configuration tools
• Rapid boot times
• Excellent value for money
• Enterprise/carrier-grade hardware
• Leading-edge technology at an affordable price


“The MikroTik solution allowed us to have a much more simplified deployment model than previous brand hardware, with better reliability and faster implementation.” – Max Walford, IT Administrator for Wyma Engineering Canterbury

What business problems are Wyma Engineering solving with the product and what benefits have they realised?

The product has facilitated better inter-site communication by providing a consistent and streamlined core set of hardware. It also has ensured secure VPNs for all inter-office communications.
Additionally it has improved the speed of internal networking while maintaining a focus on security and reliability.

Recommendations for others considering the product:

Always check the licensing models of competitors. Frenquently, products that appear apparent good value come with built-in limitations or license requirements that can quickly erode any potential savings.

MikroTik’s straight forward licensing gives the end user the most features without limitations when compared to many other enterprise-grade brands.
