We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The ease of management is the solution's most valuable feature."
"I like how the look and feel of the product is standardized to match other Cisco solutions."
"This stability is one of the major reasons to stick with this product."
"The program is very stable."
"The initial setup was really easy and straightforward."
"Mobile anchoring and graphic user interface are helpful features."
"This is the most stable product in the market."
"Granularity of standardization and technical controls."
"We use the solution for many of our smaller customers and the cloud management aspect of the solution is very good. If you compare it to other vendors that have a controller, it's much easier to manage the cloud-based solution because we travel a lot. It allows us to manage everything from any place."
"The indoor WiFi connection works well."
"Ubiquiti Wireless is a reasonably priced, easy to use, stable and reliable product."
"This is a high-quality solution that allows us to provide wifi access points in challenging areas."
"It's very easy to use. The hardware is very easy to use, compared to Microsoft. Microsoft is more complicated. It has software that is okay if you are familiar with it. In my opinion, Ubiquiti hardware is more heavy duty then Microsoft."
"One of the nice features is the backup version control."
"It's a well priced solution and as far as I'm concerned, it's enterprise class."
"I like that it's cheaper and inexpensive. It's also easy to use."
"Pricing is very high with Cisco products. It's something that many people complain about. They should work to make it more affordable."
"The pricing could be improved in future releases. It's quite expensive."
"The worst thing about the Cisco controllers is that they only have two ports."
"The integration support technology should be improved."
"There is no centralized management for multiple wireless control deployments or a user tracking feature."
"The reporting feature needs improvement, especially adding information with regards to availability uptime."
"Include more managing features within the product, rather than having to purchase them as extras."
"The cloud interoperability needs improvement."
"We tried to create an access point with built-in voice and sound that we could use in schools, for example. We tried to create something that could play sounds or messages out of the access points. We wanted to, for example, use it as a school bell instead of using other equipment. It didn't work very well. It turns out when you connect to the Ubiquiti Wireless access point, it's not possible to send simple messages (like what is going on in the canteen, or some news update for the school, etc.). We had to use the on-premises version, as the cloud version wouldn't allow for this."
"Some of our customers have reported problems with their outdoor WiFi connections."
"The product lacks some security features."
"There is really nothing wrong with the product but there are ways the utility and features can be expanded to meet future demands."
"They should make more advanced features for the power users. I am a technician and I am functional, but I do need some features that I find only in Microsoft."
"Better third-party integration would be helpful because often, Ubiquity is a product that customers choose after they already have something else from another vendor like HPE."
"There's one feature missing and that is automatic channel assignment."
"They should have more VLAN features and a designing tool like a link planer."
"It is very expensive."
"Cisco is more expensive than other solutions."
"This is a very expensive solution but there are no additional costs."
"It was a one time fee and there are no costs in addition to this."
"There is a license that is needed for the use of this solution."
"The price of this solution is ok."
"The product is a very good price."
"Right now the product is less expensive and of higher quality than other solutions."
"The price is reasonable and there's only a one-time payment. We have had this for a long time and I haven't seen any additional fee after paying for the installation."
"In South Africa, for some Cisco access points, it will cost you 10,000 Rand ($690 USD), whereas with Ubiquity that same access point will cost you less than 3,000 Rand ($210 USD)."
"The product is expensive."
"Ubiquiti Wireless is affordable."
"If you do not have a big budget, you can use Ubiquiti, it is cost-effective."
