What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is how it is centralized. There are two options that you can use, where one is a cloud-based approach and the other is standalone. The cloud-based approach is more flexible and allows me to access… more»

What needs improvement?

This solution could be more user-friendly. Setting up IP generation for something like guest access is pretty confusing and should be improved. The Java support within that is also a problem. The system is able to use the launcher base, and… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had a couple of generalized Wi-Fi towers on the campus before this solution was implemented. These were easily integrated into the current system.

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution that I recommend for small companies and organizations. A single controller can handle a maximum of 255 users on a single subnet. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did not evaluate other options before choosing Ubiquiti UniFi.

What is most valuable?

The software developers at Ubiquiti are awesome. I think of Ubiquiti as a software company as much as a hardware solution. Ubiquiti offers a cloud-managed solution… more»

How has it helped my organization?

For switching and wireless, Ubiquiti UniFi is a hit, and as long as your requirements are pretty basic, Ubiquiti UniFi will make you look like a star with the bean… more»

What needs improvement?

The weak link to Ubiquiti UniFi's solution is the USG (gateway/firewall appliance). While the USG offers basic features, it doesn't have much above basic. It's also… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's very cost effective! There is no licensing required with the Unifi product line.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously we used Cisco small business solutions. The cloud management and price brought Ubiquiti to the front runner position.

What other advice do I have?

Purchase one of each device (switch, AP, USG) and try them out in a lab environment with a PC based controller. They are so cost effective you will find them impressive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Cisco small business equipment, Netgear.

What do you think of Ubiquiti UniFi?

What is our primary use case?

We used this solution in a beachside hotel with twelve floors, three hundred and fifty rooms.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are its easy access, the controller, and constant updates.

What needs improvement?

The support for this product is insufficient.

How are customer service and technical support?

There is NO technical support offered by phone. They provide support via Chat ONLY, and moreover, they are not very knowledgeable. There is not even an option for paid support.

How was the initial setup?

It was a system that was quick and easy to install, with controller and cloud management included.

What other advice do I have?

After a couple of years, the Access point reached EOL and no support was available for…

What do you think of Ubiquiti UniFi?

What is our primary use case?

I use the Point-to-Point NanoBeam and wireless for small offices to warehouse wireless.  

How has it helped my organization?

Once setup, it just works. Now, the support and software are better. I have deployed over a hundred access points and approximately 50 NanoBeams. Business is growing due to referrals 

What is most valuable?

The setup and ease of support Firmware can be pushed or manually updated.  The Cloud Key controller was a great addition.

What needs improvement?

Integrate NanoBeams into the Controller Software.  Better pre-purchase docs, as I have to contact support via chat for some things that should already be in documents.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do you think of Ubiquiti UniFi?

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for both wired and wireless networking in a factory that is based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

How has it helped my organization?

UniFi Network Management Controller has allowed our admins to effectively monitor and troubleshoot network issues, both online remotely and on-site.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the UniFi Network Management Controller. The level of reporting offered by the controller, when used with other Ubiquiti equipment, has been invaluable.

What needs improvement?

A more powerful heatmapping application in the controller would assist in more reliable WiFi modeling. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Five years.
