Cons
The only problem is that at the moment it's an Extreme product and Extreme is not really pushing it. They have to make up for weak innovation and I'm not sure if they want to do that.

It would be helpful to have better visibility into exactly what is going on in the network.In terms of improvement, sometimes we have bugs.The VPN technology in Ubiquiti products is really difficult for beginners who do not have the right skills.It's difficult to manage the WiFi on the edge switches in the same console.Some of the features needed to set up the solution are too complex. There's a lot of technical information that is required.The technical support for this solution could be improved.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.
