Traffic filtering is a method of identifying and prioritizing different traffic types passing through a common router by applying filter rules based on your network requirements. When using MikroTik RouterOS, there are several ways to achieve this. One of the most common techniques is to apply traffic limitations by making use of IP Address Lists. Traffic can either be filtered by source, or destination IP addresses. If you want to filter specific users on your LAN, this can be achieved by using source addresses. Anything leaving the LAN (Internet) will be classified with destination addresses. A combination of these and other settings can also be used to achieve more specific results, but it all depends on your requirements.
Ubiquiti's Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) recovery method is the process followed to recover firmware on Ubiquiti devices. This method is useful when there is an unstable device connection or when the device cannot be accessed. These difficulties are typically due to some form of firmware corruption. Firmware corruption can occur due to a number of reasons, but the most common is by Electro-Static Discharge (ESD), and ESD is mainly caused by using unshielded cable and connectors. Fortunately, Ubiquiti's TFTP recovery method allows the recovery of firmware on most Ubiquiti devices. In this article, we explain how to perform this recovery.
When using a Switch or Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), the PSE needs to meet the power requirements of Powered Devices (PDs). Examples of PDs include IP surveillance cameras, Voice over IP (VoIP), and Wireless Access Points (WAPs). All PSEs have a PoE Budget - This is the total amount of power PSEs can supply to PDs at one time, measured in watts. In this article, we will explain why the budget is often over-estimated.

MikroTik's Gigabit Passive Ethernet Network (GPEN) products are designed as a cost-effective alternative to fibre's Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) solution. The key difference between these two technologies is that MikroTik's GPEN utilises copper Ethernet cabling instead of fibre. MikroTik has introduced a clever concept. Copper Ethernet runs of up to 1.5km makes this an ideal alternative to complex FTTX installations. Here are some of the benefits when choosing GPEN over GPON.
