Overall Satisfaction with Ubiquiti Wireless WAN

There were different, highly varying instances of using Ubiquiti wireless products in my organization, for both internal and third-party use. We mainly use it for networking when we need site-to-site connectivity, as well as for simple wireless LAN when commercial home, SOHO, or prosumer solutions do not meet the more advanced and high-reliability requirements of the installation.
  • Price to performance
  • Ease of configuration
  • Long term support
  • Difficult to troubleshoot
  • Challenging for extensibility
  • Dim LEDs
  • Limited retail availability in my region (Philippines)
  • Ease of configuration
  • Price to performance
  • Long-term support
  • Reduce network-related downtime for mission-critical operations.
  • Relatively low CAPEX that is not bundled with a nasty subscription that adds to OpEx.
We have transitioned third-party partners and our own internal offices away from consumer, prosumer, or SOHO grade systems such as high-end ASUS, TP-Link, and even Xiaomi routers. For the same money, we can have a more properly architected network that has better performance, better access controls, and better security. We have evaluated other solutions from competitors, particularly Aruba Instant On. While admittedly Instant On is something I'd get for my home given the price, considering it's more geared towards SOHO or SMB than proper enterprise, I wouldn't recommend it for a professional install.

The moment a deployment would need site-to-site connectivity or multiple access points, I turn to Ubiquiti. These scenarios are where I think Ubiquiti's main strengths, the ease of configuration and price to performance, shine. If long-term support is needed, I'll also trust Ubiquiti for that, since even their legacy APs dating back more than 5 years ago at the very least still adopt and work — something which I, unfortunately, see less of, even in B2B IT. For simpler deployments that can be covered by a single access point and/or an unmanaged switch, I don't think Ubiquiti's offerings shine as much compared to competitors.
