Implementing 464XLAT at a small WISP

In many ocassions you have MUCH better support from the OpenSource community than from vendors ….

Look at Ubiquity and Mikrotik, supporting a very reduced set of transitions mechanisms. I’ve many WISP that have big troubles to keep growing because that, and you know what, at the end they reflash that “nice” hardware with LEDE, and done!

Jordi

    Thanks for sharing. It's interesting to see enterprise customers
    adopting OpenWRT/LEDE despite no official support from CPE vendors for
    3rd party firmware on their products.
