"The most valuable feature of this solution is how it is centralized.""Overall, the suite of tools is quite useful.""Functionality of the cloud key in terms of monitoring and managing the environment.""I like the centralized management console, where we can add all of the devices to the Unifi controller and then management them from a single point.""The cloud management has revolutionized the way we provide services to clients, onsite trips have almost ceased and once complicated changes are made in minutes."

More Ubiquiti UniFi Pros »

"The solution offers limited integrations."

More Purple WiFi Cons »

"Software interfaces could be improved and there is a lack of documentation.""I don't like the concept of the QoS, Quality of Service configuration because it doesn't give very granular configuration access to prioritize network traffic.""Documentation could be improved, especially regarding known issues or new features. It relies heavily on the user community to provide support and info. There is a vast user group with support groups on both the dedicated forums as well as most social media platforms.""If I could manage the W-LAN or other items without a UniFi switch, that would be very helpful. I have not tried, but I think some options are tied to the hardware, like the Ubiquiti switch.""Setting up IP generation for something like guest access is pretty confusing and should be improved."
