Cons
"I would like an option to create different networks within the switch.""It should be more stable, and it should have good integration with the cloud. It should support configuration, supervision, and control through the cloud.""They could be more stable. They were not as resistant as Cisco. After some time, some of them failed. This could be because we import quite a lot of products from different horizons, so there is no guarantee of quality. In Africa, these products don't always directly come from the manufacturer. We get these products from the Middle East or Asia. Therefore, you cannot be sure that the quality is exactly similar to what you have in Europe or America.""We have issues with the stability.""The solution needs better local support."

"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.""The price of the solution is fair compared to others.
