"This is a dependable switch which will help you sleep at night."
"The solution has a very good web interface. It makes it easy to manage everything."
"We are able to customize this solution based on the customer's requirements."
"Enables direct access to clusters."
"The fibre ports that are 10 Gb capacity helped with the travel of a lot of regular as well as video data. Fibre can handle a lot more virtual data than copper twisted-pair, so we got a lot more data and a lot more traffic signals back through the fibre ports, faster, than with copper."
"The solution's most valuable feature is its reliability."
"The GUI interface is very easy to use and the Linux-based command-line interface is also good."
"I like the control one has with this solution."
"The interface and the duality are the solution's most valuable features."

"There needs to be better integration with the interface."
"In future versions, I would like to see improvements in networking speed."
"technical support response time is sometimes very slow."
"I could see them possibly creating a more intuitive software. It's very user-friendly, but there are some things that aren't very intuitive when programming the switches."
"We've had issues with the power supply. I've had to change the power supply twice. I'm not sure what the issue is. We're still trying to work out why we're having problems with the switches and the cutting of the power supply. The solution should look into this to see if there is something wrong with the product."
"The technical support for this solution could be improved."
"Some of the features needed to set up the solution are too complex. There's a lot of technical information that is required."
"It's difficult to manage the WiFi on the edge switches in the same console."
"The VPN technology in Ubiquiti products is really difficult for beginners who do not have the right skills."
"In terms of improvement, sometimes we have bugs."
