We are using BGP internally on Mikrotik with good success instead of OSPF. I've never done OSPF on it, as my network isn't entirely star shaped like OSPF is said to be created for. There is a range of private BGP AS numbers for such applications. Each site's router gets an ASN and has peering

BGP is more designed for routing application with upstream or downstream applications. Of course you can use it internally as well and in that case if your not using BGP for upstream you can use any AS number you want. OSPF can be used in any network design and is designed for internal routing.

BGP is on 42 routers. We have twice as many mikrotiks, but some won't get it because they don't need it (due to the nature of their function), and there are some we haven't had the spare time to convert away from static routes. We have BGP on our internet uplink too, but that's not MT, and it

Hello, Sorry, I cannot. We took it over from another company. I know the tripod mount was specific to the magnets. They were stuck to the tower and then a metal plate with about 1/4 inches edges sat on top and then that plate had a vertical piece for the tripod leg to bolt to.

Well, I can't comment on using BGP on Mikrotik. And there is not a shortage of testimonials for reason to use Cisco Switches/Routers. But I will say, if someone choses not to use Mikrotik for BGP, that does not mean that CISCO is the answer for BGP. Linux has always outperformed Cisco with BGP.
