Stable, easy to deploy and manage, and fewer access points are needed when compared to other vendors

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and the Ubiquiti WLAN is one of the networking products that we implement for our customers. We have worked with different versions including the AC Pro HD, the HD, and the XD. I have set up and manage multiple sites. There are 45 access points deployed all over a billion square feet.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most beneficial thing about Ubiquiti is that it is simple to deploy."
  • "The downside is the interface changes, where they are constantly doing firmware updates."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing Ubiquiti is to first make sure that you have a good plan first. Make sure that you have done your homework in terms of the space where it will be installed. The best is if you're replacing the existing solution, you should still review the placement. The reason is that nine times out of ten, you'll use fewer Ubiquiti devices than you would if you were using Aruba, or Meraki, or some other brand. You don't need to buy as many, even though with the budget you have you can buy twice as many access points for the same money you would spend on Meraki, but…

Competitive pricing with an easy initial setup but needs better technical support

Pros and Cons

  • "The pricing is very competitive and the feature sets are very good. It compares well against more expensive options."
  • "The support needs improvement. The official support is kind of complex. It's not that straightforward compared to Cisco and Aruba."

What other advice do I have?

We are a customer and an end-user. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I've run an internal audit about the company's Wi-Fi solution properties, all the main metrics about the solution. I was told that there was interference between the channels due to the fact that we have many floors and the floors are where the conflict comes in. Even though the channels were set up automatically by the solution, there were too many APs on the same floor, and that caused the interference to become an issue. It was not caused by the specific solution, however, the fact that their solution…

Offers free management with good documentation and an easy initial setup

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use the solution with all of my clients.

Pros and Cons

  • "All of the interfacing is very good."
  • "Largely we're happy with the product, however, the firmware deployments could maybe be managed a little bit differently."

What other advice do I have?

We are resellers and installers. My advice to other companies considering this product would be to get a consultant in order to do a proper site survey. Planning is super-important, no matter what device or product you ultimately choose. At the end of the day, if you don't plan properly then you can't expect the deployment to be rolled out properly. You need to do proper feasibility on-site. You need to make sure that the areas that you want to be covered will be covered properly. This product is pretty easy to get set up and get going. For that reason, I'd rate it at an eight out of ten.

Management interface is a key feature, enables viewing of devices centrally

What is our primary use case?

Our company uses this solution extensively and recently we've deployed it for our clients too. I've also been using it personally so it's a flexible solution. There are probably 10 users in my company. I'm a systems and networks administrator and we're customers of Ubiquiti.

Pros and Cons

  • "Great management interface."
  • "Switching devices requires reconfiguration from scratch."

What other advice do I have?

It's important to study the system before implementing in the real environment, because it can be a little bit difficult initially. Once you have experience it's a very good solution. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

Good security and reasonably priced, but the signal strength from the access points should be improved

What is our primary use case?

This is part of our wireless network infrastructure. One of the things that we use our network for is video conferencing.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the level of security on the Wi-Fi network."
  • "The strength of the signal from the access points could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

This is a good product and I have already recommended it to two of my colleagues. Overall, I am satisfied with the product but it would be great if the signal strength was a little bit higher. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
