Ubiquiti Networks in San Jose provides their UniFi wi-fi hotspot technology.https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/GN/ZH/FSS57WWTP3G3.pngBest quality for the priceWell, Ubiquiti UniFi is being used to manage and is all of our Access points in our office. So all users across the company are using this. The problem this solves is giving WiFi to all users in our buildings and also give us as the IT department the ability to manage the network both remotely via the cloudkey or locally via the IP Address.,Cloud Management UI is easy to use Automatic backups and easy to update the firmware,Make it able to make changes without rebooting the AP More details on network traffic,9,We have had great and reliable WiFi thanks to these pieces of equipment.,Cisco Meraki Wireless WANStop spending so much on your Wireless NetworkUbiquiti Networks manufacture a wide range of products from small business to expansive enterprises. The primary use case for our implementation of Ubiquiti was two-fold. 1. To extended our network to other buildings inexpensively, i.e. wirelessly. 2. To create a fully meshed, campus-wide wireless network that could be managed from a single console. Ubiquiti's products really shined for these two use cases.,High quality, well featured products for far cheaper than the competition. Ubiquiti produces excellent devices with the functionality that you would expect for 2 or 3 times the price. No licensing costs Ubiquiti does not charge extra for management software or additional devices. What you see is what you get. The management software to manage as many devices as you want for the same price. Ease of use I always recommend Ubiquiti products to others looking for an all-in-one wireless solution because they deliver a great product that just works with minimal configurations. The graphical interfaces on their wireless point to point products, as well as their UniFi products is superb.,Flexibility Ubiquiti works really great for the specific use cases that they are designed for but you will not have good luck moving too far outside of those. For example, you won't find any next generation firewall capabilities with their security appliance. Support Since Ubiquiti is extremely inexpensive for what you get, their support is a bit lacking. If you have trouble, you are bound to Google searches and forums. There is a wealth of information online about different use cases for their products but if you are looking for dedicated support you may be left desiring more.,10,Reduction in support costs. You are tired of having to power cycle wireless access points, have users turn on and off their WiFi, log in to multiple management interfaces, and just have poor signal quality. Ubiquiti's UniFi solution is literally a set and forget product. Add up the amount of tickets you put in for wireless network issues and figure out the labor cost of that. That is what you could save with Ubiquiti. One project of extending our network to a building across a parking lot would have cost us thousands of dollars in cutting concrete, pulling cable, and patching everything up. Ubiquiti accomplished this job by using 2 Air Max Nanostation Point to Point antennas. Total product cost was around $200 The main return on Investment: Having a consistent, stable, reliable wireless network. Be that with a network of AirFiber point to points, Nanostations, or UniFi products.,,pfSense, VMware ESXi, Compellent, Carbonite EVault, ManageEngine Desktop Central,Creating multiple SSID networks with separate VLAN tagging. Extremely easy to do. Connecting one point to point antenna to another even if they are miles apart is relatively easy to do after you line them up. The antenna will be able to discover the other one and you simply pair them together. Setting bandwidth restrictions or restricting IP address spaces for wireless users,Creating a customized guest portal requires quite a bit of HTML knowledge but isn't impossible. Pulling reports regarding wireless usage for specific devices is quite difficult to do.,Yes, but I don't use it,8Ubiquiti Networks Review - Cheap and easy, a dream come true ;-)We use Ubiquiti throughout our entire school district. We use its wifi, network switch, VoIP and video camera solutions. We also use several of their long distance wireless radios to provide internet service to remote areas, such as our football field.

  • Make it able to make changes without rebooting the AP
  • More details on network traffic
Ubiquiti Networks UniFi is great for anyone that needs great WiFi throughout your whole building without spending an arm and a leg. I know Cisco/Meraki equipment is better but they are overpriced. These Unify AP's we have are great quality and are reasonably priced. They are also very easy to add more AP's if you need to expand your setup.

Ubiquiti Networks UniFi Review: "Stop spending so much on your Wireless Network"

Ubiquiti Networks manufacture a wide range of products from small business to expansive enterprises.
The primary use case for our implementation of Ubiquiti was two-fold.
1. To extended our network to other buildings inexpensively, i.e. wirelessly.
2. To create a fully meshed, campus-wide wireless network that could be managed from a single console.

Ubiquiti's products really shined for these two use cases.
  • High quality, well featured products for far cheaper than the competition.
  • Ubiquiti produces excellent devices with the functionality that you would expect for 2 or 3 times the price.
  • No licensing costs
  • Ubiquiti does not charge extra for management software or additional devices. What you see is what you get. The management software to manage as many devices as you want for the same price.
  • Ease of use
  • I always recommend Ubiquiti products to others looking for an all-in-one wireless solution because they deliver a great product that just works with minimal configurations.
  • The graphical interfaces on their wireless point to point products, as well as their UniFi products is superb.
  • Flexibility
  • Ubiquiti works really great for the specific use cases that they are designed for but you will not have good luck moving too far outside of those. For example, you won't find any next generation firewall capabilities with their security appliance.
  • Support
  • Since Ubiquiti is extremely inexpensive for what you get, their support is a bit lacking. If you have trouble, you are bound to Google searches and forums. There is a wealth of information online about different use cases for their products but if you are looking for dedicated support you may be left desiring more.
I have used Ubiquiti products successfully in a couple scenarios.
1. Extending network connectivity to geographically separate locations. If you want to extend your network to a building across campus, or even across the region, you can successfully do that with Ubiquiti Point to Point wireless products. Maybe you own a lakeside dock and want to put a wireless access point there without running cable. Ubiquiti can do that. Maybe you want to provide wireless internet for a whole RV park, Ubiquiti can do that. The use cases are many when it comes to extending your network wirelessly.
2. Creating a fully-meshed wireless network. You want to create a wireless network with one or many SSIDs and you want to manage it all from one console. You don't want to spend thousands on a Cisco or Aruba product as well as deal with all the licensing. Ubiquiti networks can do it, on the cheap, and it will work great. One of my installations we manage over 26 wireless access points spanning 10 different locations across the state all from one console.
It truly is a great product.

If you need wireless access points, networks switches, surveillance cameras, or VoIP phones Ubiquiti is the best solution I have found for the money. Can't recommend them enough.

  • Training - Offering some training on their products through e-learning or training partners.
I believe their products fit well in the SMB market space. They are well priced, and give you a very competitive feature set. Many businesses buy products that are complex, and end up spending lots on consulting fees. I also question if a lot of businesses take advantage of the advanced features of those products, or pay for things they don't need. Ubiquiti's product line has the features most organizations require.

We replaced our Fortinet integrated wireless access points with Ubiquiti aps and haven't had any issues with roaming or being able to quickly configure them.
  • Provides seemless handoffs between access points throughout the building.
  • The controller software is very intuitive and well developed.
  • The ascetics are very sleek and clean.
  • More training on the edgerouter products
  • Better compatibility list for third party products
[Ubiquiti Networks is well suited for scenarios where users] Would like to cover a wide area with wireless.
