Ubiquiti UniFi Switches Valuable Features

ThomasWilke
CEO at CITOM
These switches are very simple to use and the GUI is very nice. They have made administration much easier. Optionally, if you have a very advanced requirement then you can do it less comfortably using the GUI, or instead use SSH to program it. If you have experience in Linux and bash scripting then it is very easy to do. The most valuable feature is that the technology is open. If there's a new technology then you can implement it yourself. For example, WireGuard is a very nice VLAN framework that is available on Linux and you can implement it on the Ubiquiti switches. With Cisco or other commercial products, you'll have to wait until the manufacturer starts to provide it for you. Sometimes, they need quite a long time before this will happen. It is for this same reason that we don't use macOS or Windows because they are always about five years behind current technologies. View full review »

The most valuable feature is that you can manage everything through the Cloud Key UniFi controller. The fact that you can manage everything including the switch-level configuration, and access point configuration of both the wireless networks and the LAN, is very useful. The GUI interface is very easy to use and the Linux-based command-line interface is also good. I am happy with the interface. View full review »

I like the control one has with this solution; you manage everything from one central point. Everything including the devices and the switches. So the centralized management is one thing that I really like about Ubiquiti. View full review »
