SwOS Lite is an operating system designed specifically for administration of MikroTik CSS610 series switch products.

SwOS Lite is configurable from your web browser. It gives you all the basic functionality for a managed switch, plus more: allows to manage port-to-port forwarding, broadcast storm control, apply MAC filter, configure VLANs, mirror traffic, apply bandwidth limitation and even adjust some MAC and IP header fields.


Warning: Each RouterBOARD switch series device has its own firmware which cannot be installed on other series models! CSS610-1Gi-7R-2S+ supports SwOS v2.12 and newer.
