Overall Satisfaction with Ubiquiti Wireless WAN

We use Ubiquiti wireless for all of our wireless points. We also use them for some of our network switching, for their phones and their video cameras.
Love their products, all supported by the controller which is free, no annual licensing fees. Cost is much cheaper than other solutions, can't recommend them enough.
  • Automatically load balances based on band. Makes it simple to spread out users.
  • Updates can be set to automatic or manual. Automatic uses rolling updates, happens every time we update the controller.
  • Continually add new features and improvements with their FREE software upgrades
  • Supply can be a problem, especially for new products. We have had to sometimes wait for months for supply to come in.
  • No phone support. Only email/chat. can be frustrating sometimes just texting someone, but have not had to contact them very often.
  • Huge cost savings. Buy it once and you are done, no annual renewals.
  • Extremely reliable and scalable. We went from 0 to 900 Chromebooks in 2 years.
  • Very little maintenance, set it and forget it. Allows us to focus on other tasks.
  • amer
amer is literally rebranded Ubiquiti wireless points. They make you pay the annual fee. We cancelled our contract and were able to wipe the firmware and add them back to the Ubiquiti controller. Amer is a big waste of money.
If you are in an education environment that needs to provide reliable wifi to a lot of users, go with Ubiquiti. the most cost effective and reliable solution. Same with any small business that needs reliable networking.
