One of the nice features is the backup version control.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.This is a high-quality solution that allows us to provide wifi access points in challenging areas.Ubiquiti Wireless is a reasonably priced, easy to use, stable and reliable product.The indoor WiFi connection works well.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 UniFi Controller Software provides excellent statistical and monitoring facilities.The 3x3 MIMO antenna provides excellent coverage and the product is well supported by Ubiquiti in terms of firmware updates.

Cons
The solution could use a better user interface.The support could be faster. It takes time for them to reply.I would like to see built-in Wi-Fi.The captive portal should be more customizable because right now, it is very limited.I have some friends who have not heard of Ruckus, but are aware of other competitors.This product needs a point-to-point, bridge solution.The pricing needs to be reconsidered because it's expensive.

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.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.There is really nothing wrong with the product but there are ways the utility and features can be expanded to meet future demands.The product lacks some security features.Some of our customers have reported problems with their outdoor WiFi connections.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.

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 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.Right now the product is less expensive and of higher quality than other solutions.The product is a very good price.The price of this solution is ok.
