Ubiquiti UniFi Valuable Features
Manager ITeS at a non-tech company with 11-50 employees
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 it and control things from anywhere.
The coverage is ok, it is stable, and I am able to discover things quickly.
I am able to easily identify who many users are accessing the Wi-Fi, along with which people are connected to which access points. All of this information is available in the console.View full review »
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 connecting to your controller that can be hosted locally, in the cloud, or on Ubiquiti's Cloud Key controller.
The Cloud Key Gen2 is a huge improvement over the Gen1 solution mainly because it offers battery backup to keep the onboard MongoDB from getting corrupted when a power failure is experienced. You can manage multiple networks (sites) from the same cloud logon.View full review »
Definitely Cloud management, to be able to monitor and work on remote equipment has saved us a fortune in travel and diagnostic time. And not just making changes, but being able to remotely power cycle and individual POE port has helped us troubleshoot issues that had nothing to do with the switches themselves. So say an AP or VOIP Phone is completely locked up, a quick search for the mac address, if the port isn't already labeled, lets us find the device and power cycle it without affecting any other devices.View full review »

The most valuable feature is the functionality of the cloud key in terms of monitoring and managing the environment. If something's not working, we can remotely log on, fix an AP, change a password, implement upgrades, etc. It can all be done remotely. In general, the solution is reliable, trustworthy and generally works quite well.View full review »
Network Administrator at a consultancy with self employed
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. When we are setting up a VLAN, we have to define a network and then add the ports to the particular profiles. After that, the configuration is finished.
Security-wise, it has a lot of features.
The UniFi controller is user-friendly and it is very easy to manage.
This product is regularly updated, including firmware updates, which is something that I like.View full review »

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.View full review »
