librouteros is a library that can be used to communicate with devices running RouterOS, a Linux-based operating system by MikroTik. A generic and low-level interface is provided to issue arbitrary commands to the device and receive replies. For some commands, high-level abstractions are provided to simplify communication. The library is thread-safe and reentrant-safe.
The ROHC library provides an easy and robust way for applications to reduce their bandwidth usage on network links with limited capacity or expensive costs. Headers of network packets are compressed with the ROHC protocol and algorithms. The ROHC protocol is very efficient for compressing VoIP streams which use RTP as a transport protocol. ROHC is also suitable for compressing IP-only (IPv4 or IPv6) flows, UDP flows, and many others.
