Overall Satisfaction with Ubiquiti WLAN
Ubiquiti WLAN is being used by my current client in their main headquarters to manage and supply wireless networking to their staff and guests. In this configuration, there are users that work with large image and video files in a marketing agency. This means that they require speed and reliability for all of these creative assets.
- Easy setup with clear instructions
- Great mapping tool to help put devices where they are needed.
- Superb testing and monitoring tools to help keep the system running and determine potential problems before they become larger.
- Solid, I have rarely had to make changes on the equipment after it has been set.
- Control software is an application, not web-based.
- Less downtime than the previous installation of the wireless network. This has resulted in more billable time done by employees in the same hours of the day.
- Relatively low upfront cost, compared to some competitors.
- Easy setup and installation made it easy to be up and running quickly upon installation.
- Cisco ASA, Linksys Ethernet Switches, Netgear Ethernet Switches, 3Com Baseline Switches (Discontinued), Cisco Catalyst Switches, Ubiquiti Networks UniFi and Cisco Meraki Wireless Access Point
The Ubiquiti WLAN equipment was recommended and reviews online were favorable. That, along with the lower cost, made the decision easy for me and the CEO. The other devices we researched seemed fine, and would probably handle the workload we had in mind, but due to our reading online, the Ubiquiti system was ideal.
I don't think this equipment is necessary for some small offices or individual offices, as it does require some knowledge for setup, but most medium size organizations would do well to put this in the hands of their IT department. In my experience, when there is a need for multiple access points and a way to manage them, there is no better than the Ubiquiti WLAN.
