"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.

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.""It would be helpful to have better visibility into exactly what is going on in the network.""The management of this product needs to be improved."
