We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Easy to integrate with any of the other hardware platforms."
"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."
"The ability to manage firmware revisions."
"These switches are very simple to use and the GUI is very nice."
"It is great size-wise and the user interface is easy to use. You don't need to be a pro to use this solution."
"The most valuable feature for us is the VPN."
"The number of surfaces that can be handled by the chipset could be increased."
"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."
"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."
"Ubiquiti switches are quite affordable and you don't have to pay extra for support."
"I feel that the price of this solution is definitely reasonable compared to all of the others."
"The price is very low and a good approach for a smaller company, with 10 to 15 people."
"The price of Ubiquiti UniFi Switches is really good. We have deployed a few Ubiquiti UniFi Switches in New Zealand, and they are a value for money. They are cheaper and stable, but if you have the budget, I would recommend Meraki switches."
"The price is reasonable."
"The price of this product is cheap."
