TheBrothersWISP Panel At Denver MUM 2017

We will be doing a panel surrounding routing with Mikrotik. It’s an open forum so if you don’t give us questions, then it’s going to get pretty boring, pretty fast. If you have questions, and won’t be able to attend, or are to shy to ask out loud, send them to us on facebook.com/thebrotherswisp or at contactus (at) thebrotherswisp.com.

See you guys there!
