Is there support for Mikrotik KNOT over a Cat NB1 connection? Assume connection latency is causing a problem?

See the specs for Cat NB1 here > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narrowband_IoT

It appears as so these devices still use the standard RouterOS, therefore I assume these will also be accessible via SSH/telnet (if these services are enabled, of course), so Unimus should be able to back it up. The aforementioned LTE Cat NB1 connection and both a latency and speeds of what looks like a couple of tens of kb/s would almost certainly be a bottleneck, but we should be able to accommodate for that by extending some of our default timeouts.

Would you mind submitting a support ticket in our Portal so that we can take a closer look? I'd be surprised if a discovery wouldn't fail. I will get back to you regarding enabling debug logs so that we have more data to work with and see if and what timeouts would require an extension.
