Ubiquiti Wireless Valuable Features

Ubiquiti Wireless is extremely easy to set up. If you do all the proper working parameters for it, it's extremely easy to set up. It's got something called "adoption," so you connect all of your switches and your APs, give them power, and then you actually open the software. You log into the switch, open the software and adopt the APs. The switch adopts, the AP picks up what it is and what it's doing, gives you diagnostics on it, and it's a 10 or 15 minute process. You can turn around, connect all these switches up, switch the switch on and it tells you those switches are there and it adopts the switches. With MikroTik for instance, you have a lot of setup protocols to do. If you're not a MikroTik engineer, a MikroTik solution is very difficult to set up. If you're not a NETGEAR engineer, or you're not somebody that knows NETGEAR, NETGEAR is very difficult to set up initially if you don't know the product. Whereas something like Ubiquiti, you literally just switch it on, you adopt the APs, and that's it. There's a couple of parameters you need set, so you obviously have to have a networking background to do it but just from a setup perspective, it's one of the easiest systems that I've ever set up.

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 than Microsoft. It is also the first company in Iraq that provides a product with an antenna and feeds all in one compact design. Before that, we had the magnetic adapter alone and then antenna alone. After that, Microsoft and other companies have produced equipment like Ubiquiti, but it was the first one that made this design. You should also not forget that we use Ubiquiti for point to point with devices. All their features are very popular here in Iraq, though. View full review »

One of the nice features is the backup version control. The Cloud Key is used for the adoption process, which provides a single login control solution for your switching. Nobody can just get onto your switches, or onto your wireless units. This is a nice solution from a security perspective. When it comes to setting it up, this is one of the fastest solutions out there. It has an adoption set up, where you set up your switches, connect your APs to see the switches, and from there it detects your system. It actually tells you what it detects from the network and then you adopt that. Whether it is another switch or another Ubiquity product, it will adopt it. Obviously, it only works with other Ubiquity products. View full review »

I think two major things are the most valuable for our operations. The quality is very important, and we have seen that this system has been reliable for the last 10 years. That is an important factor. Managing the number of towers and access points has always been a challenge and made this type of business quite expensive in this location. The main thing for us is the prices and meeting and beating the price of competitors. So the most important feature is the value itself. Technology-wise, everyone can offer the same thing. Our standard is to have the best service and offer it all for less. View full review »

I like the features that allow configuration of the access points, the firewalls, and the switches from an application on your smartphone. If my mother calls and tells me there's a problem with the internet connection or WiFi, I can check it on my mobile phone and can then restart the device or let her know there's another reason for the problem. It helps because my parents are over 70 years old. View full review »

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. Installation is easy with seamless integration of additional APs. The dual band wifi provides very fast throughput of 450 Mbps at 2.4 Ghz and it claims 1300Mbps at 5 Ghz although I have not witnessed this so far but our fibre connection to the internet is currently governed at 100 Mbps duplex. The AP has been running in excess of 2 years with no glitches whatsoever. View full review »

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. View full review »
