Easy to configure, simple to use, and reliable

Pros and Cons

  • "I have found the most valuable features to be how user-friendly it is and how simple it is to do the configurations."
  • "This solution should be more robust when it comes to connectivity and improve wireless technology."

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for individuals that need access to the office network. This solution allows them to be connected to their mobile, desktop, laptops, and tablets, or any other kind of internal information which is being sent to the cloud. 

What is most valuable?

I have found the most valuable features to be how user-friendly it is and how simple it is to do the configurations.

What needs improvement?

This solution should be more robust when it comes to connectivity and improve wireless technology.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have found the solution to be stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. We have 100 people using the solution in my organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good.

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

I have been using Aruba solutions in the past and they have some advantages to this one. Aruba is more prudent and robust overall. However, in Aruba, you have to configure it a lot with many details.

What about the implementation team?

I did the deployment myself.

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

The price has been fair for what I have been using it for. There is no license for this solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. However, if you have the extra budget I would select Aruba instead.

I rate Ubiquiti Wireless an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Is stable, scalable, flexible, and easy to install

Pros and Cons

  • "Ubiquiti Wireless is easy to use, it's stable and flexible, and the performance is great. It is scalable as well."
  • "The cost is on the higher side and could be lower."

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is to provide wireless access.

What is most valuable?

Ubiquiti Wireless is easy to use, it's stable and flexible, and the performance is great. It is scalable as well.

What needs improvement?

The cost could be lower.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for, maybe, two or three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Ubiquiti Wireless is stable, and I'm quite happy with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. We currently have 20 customers using this solution.

How was the initial setup?

Installation is quite straightforward and quick.

What about the implementation team?

I'm a managed service provider, and we deploy networks as well. I handle the network side, and the technician handles the onsite work.

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

There are no licensing fees for this solution, but the cost is on the higher side.

What other advice do I have?

It's not a one file device. It's a whole network. It's Wi-Fi, wired, a security gateway, etc. It has all of these different components to it and is not just Wi-Fi. However, the price is on the higher side, but you're getting better equipment for it. So, I would rate Ubiquiti Wireless at nine on a scale from one to ten.

Easy to manage, stable with great platforms

Pros and Cons

  • "It's a well priced solution and as far as I'm concerned, it's enterprise class."
  • "There's one feature missing and that is automatic channel assignment."

What is most valuable?

Valuable features include the fact that the solution is very easy to manage. The Unify platform is very good and the Edge platform is very stable. It's a well priced solution and as far as I'm concerned, it's enterprise class. Training was easy and reasonable, and it's all very good.

What needs improvement?

There's one feature that they're missing that's critical, and that is automatic channel assignment. RF channel assignment, which their current controller is not doing. Cisco has this but Ubiquiti doesn't. The only time the channel is reassigned is during reboot of the access point. But there's no dynamic channel management and power management of the Ubiquiti gear.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for four years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a very scalable solution. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Ubiquiti technical support is very good. 

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

I'm not sure about licensing but you don't have to pay for ongoing maintenance which is great.

What other advice do I have?

I would highly recommend this product. Just do the training and it's great. 

I would rate this product a nine out of 10.
