The annual European Mikrotik User Meeting (MUM) was held in Vienna, Austria on 7-8 March. This conference on MikroTik RouterOS software and RouterBOARD hardware is a great opportunity to meet MikroTik staff, distributors, certified trainers and consultants.

Though there are a number of MUM's happening throughout the year and around the world, this was considered the main event due to the fact that Mikrotik announced their product plans for the upcoming year.
ESD is a build up of electrically charged particles that can wreak havoc with your devices if not adequately protected. Lightning storms are a prime example of ESD build up. Turbulence in storm clouds causes a build-up of electrical charges that ultimately result in a lightning strike. Even when there is no visible lightning, friction caused by small particles colliding with the device creates a static build up which eventually defuses onto the electronics. If powerful enough, this discharge can travel through the PCB of the device, out the Ethernet port and down the Ethernet cable to the devices below.
