NAND is a circuit that produces an output signal when there are signals on all of its input.

Great Value Offering

MikroTik Cloud Router Switch CRS109-8G-1S-2HnD-IN offers a great value because of 3 main factors. The first is the 8 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports, which provide exceptional efficiency. The other two are the low power consumption and the low-cost feature.

The cloud router switch offers various SSID for each department or a company and monitors traffic for them. With this device companies can limit the access to the web for whichever department they want.

Also, it enables you to have several networks on one device which helps configure network ports individually.

The MikroTik Cloud Router Service Thailand has done an excellent job by designing this small size and low-cost Router Switch.  The Router Switch has been ranked 4th among the routers available.

The Router Switch has a small touchscreen LCD that allows you to view and setup an IP address for a LAN interface. The LCD of course isn’t of a very good quality like the one used in your smart devices but it is sufficient to fulfil what it is meant for.

The MikroTik Cloud Router Switch may look complicated in the beginning but like it is said never judge a book by its cover. The device is very easy to setup and functions efficiently.

The Router Switch has a Printed Circuit Board temperature monitor so it does not get overheated. It also has a voltage monitor which allows us to monitor the voltage input to the power supply.

CRS109-8G-1S-2HnD-IN Overview

The CRS109-8G-1S-2HnD-IN consists of specific switch configuration options in a special menu. However, the ports can be easily removed from the configuration and can be used for routing.

The device has a built in 2.4GHz wireless access point that enables the device to have everything in one box. It can have an AP, a router with multiple ports and a full wire speed smart switch.

The MikroTik Cloud Router Service Thailand offers can exceptional treat for small and medium size businesses and offices.

The CRS109-8G-1S-2HnD-IN comprises of a microUSB port and a built-in Wireless AP along with a fully manageable L3 switch. The router switch comprises of additional features like a reset switch, a beeper and a color touchscreen LCD. Moreover, it has voltage and temperature monitoring as well.


MikroTik Cloud Router Switch combines with all the best features of a fully functional router. The complete wire speed switching enables it to give high performance to small and medium business outlets.

Its small and compact design is ideal for placing it on a desktop. The color touchscreen LCD helps input minor details like the IP address.


CRS109-8G-1S-2HnD-IN is supposed to be the ideal router switch for small offices or home-based offices. Its 8 Ethernet ports can be helpful in maintaining a database for each department and also for keeping track of the internet usage.

The interesting feature of this router switch is that it can configure ports as a switch and also for the routing purpose.  In other words, it has all the Switch Configuration but you can remove ports for routing.

The device’s max power consumption is 13W. It is a low-cost router switch that uses less power. The device holds more than the average configuration capacity of a Home router.

However, the configuration of the RouterOS is not in-built. It requires expertise in OS for its maintenance. The device needs to balance it load. In order for load balancing, you may need more than one MikroTik device.

The CRS109-8G-1S-2HnD-IN and the MikroTik Cloud Router Service Thailand are very likely to be recommended for all small to medium sized companies for easier configuration and routing purposes.
