Ubiquiti Networks entered the wireless technology market in June 2005, after announcing its “Super Range” mini-PCI radio card series. The SR2 and SR5 cards were adopted by original equipment manufacturers and wireless Internet service providers. Customers included Wireless Router Application Platform (WRAP), Soekris, and Mikrotik. Operating at the 2.4 and 5.8 GHz bands, the “Super Range” modules used the Atheros integrated circuits.
In 2006, Ubiquiti announced Freedom Frequency, which used frequencies as high as 60 Gigahertz (GHz) on its radio modules. This encouraged the release of the SR9, a separate card operating at 900 MHz non-standard IEEE 802.11 band.
Ubiquiti introduced the PowerStation in May 2007, its first product to feature an integrated radio/antenna design, In the same year, Ubiquiti released more XR cards for the licensed bands to deal with congestion seen in the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz bands. The company received attention in August 2007 when a group of Italian amateur radio operators set a distance world record for point-to-point links in the 5.8 GHz spectrum. Using two XR5 cards and a pair of 35 dBi dish antennas, the Italian team was able to establish a 304 km (about 188 mi) link at data rates between 4-5 Mbit/s.
In 2008, Ubiquiti announced additions to its 802.11 b/g lineup, including the Bullet, NanoStation, NanoStation Loco, PicoStation and RouterStation. The following year gave rise to airMAX, Ubiquiti’s proprietary MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) Time division multiple access (TDMA) polling technology. The new protocol presented an entire lineup of radio/antenna systems, building on the 802.11 b/g series, including the Rocket M. Shortly before the end of 2009, Ubiquiti announced the NanoBridge M and AirGrid M.
In 2011, Ubiquiti released new antennas for its M series devices as well as new models for the NanoBridge series. In August, outdoor and mini UniFi APs were announced, as well as AirCam/AirVision, an IP camera/NVR software. For a second consecutive year, Ubiquiti received the WISPA Manufacturer of the Year award. During October, Ubiquiti announced: Rocket/Bullet Titanium, a Rocket M5 with Gigabit Ethernet ports, TOUGHSwitch, a POE switch, EdgeMAX powered by EdgeOS, a routing platform based on Vyatta, UniFi and AirCam Pro series, as well as AirControl, management-software for Ubiquiti equipment.
MikroTik is a Latvian company located in Riga was founded in 1996 to develop routers and wireless ISP systems, MikroTik provides wireless ISP systems for Internet connectivity in most of the countries around the world.MikroTik experience in using industry standard PC hardware and complete routing systems allowed us in 1997 to create the RouterOS software system that provides extensive stability, controls, and flexibility for all kinds of data interfaces and routing, this software based on Linux.
In 2002 MikroTik decided to make our own hardware, and the RouterBOARD brand was born. MikroTik have resellers in most parts of the world, and customers in probably every country on the planet.
MikroTik RouterOS software is divided to levels ,as a part of software option and price.
Actually main Levels are Level3 to Level6 (except demo and trail ver.),
Level 6 is the highest level ,so all options are enable and unlimited.
Every MikroTik model has level number ,products with lower level is suffer from limited option or options that is in disabled mode.
for example , if we take level 3 , we see that items with level 3 cant operate as Wireless Access point, and the numbers of session is limited to 10 sessions, while on Level 6 all option is unlimited.
All MikroTik items arrive with level number according to product model, That means We don’t need to pay for RouterOS when we purchase MikroTik products.
Big advance of RouterOS software is that client can buy RouterOS software separately (without hardware) and install it on Regular X86 pc.
The client can chose The RouterOS Level 4 – 6 on purchase time , of course each level have different price, and level 6 is the most expensive license.
The RouterOS is a operating system, you can’t install RouterOS with other operating system.

Times Microwave Systems was founded in 1948 as the Times Wire and Cable Company. TMS pioneered closed cell low loss polyethylene foam dielectrics and low loss taped PTFE dielectric coaxial cables. Those developments established today’s high performance coaxial cable industry. Expansion of its RF and microwave connector design and manufacturing expertise then allowed TMS to take full responsibility for end-to-end performance of complete cable assemblies.
With production facilities in the US and China we address both specialized applications with extremely demanding performance requirements and high volume commercial applications at frequencies from a few KHz to 50 GHz.
In 2003, TMS was selected by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics to supply the Broadband Airborne Cable Assemblie s on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). TMS was chosen to supply this solution
since its high performance cable assemblies are able to handle high-speed data in extreme avionics environments including wide variations in temperature and pressure.
TMS was instrumental in the development of military specifications, including MIL-C-17 for coaxial cables and MIL-T-81490 for Transmission Lines. Times is the leading source of MIL-C-17 qualified products, holding more QPL’s (Qualified Product Listings) than any other manufacturer, and Times products meet rigorous MIL-T-81490 and MIL-C-87104 requirements
