Question on managing switches downport

Hello, I've used OpenWRT before on consumer hardware, but now I have a question about setting it up in an office environment.

We have MikroTik routers and switches, and since I can't actually manage all of them from the router I see no point in keeping the operating system stock.

my question is, does OpenWRT offer a way to manage other OpenWRT devices that are connected to this device? that's assuming the switches can be upgraded to OpenWRT.

if they can't I'm guessing it's near impossible to do that, aside from maybe opening a link to their management web page from OpenWRT.

Thanks and have a great day!
