If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Ubiquiti WLAN, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would recommend this solution to others. I rate Ubiquiti WLAN a seven out of ten.
On a scale from one to ten, I would rate Ubiquiti WLAN at eight. We needed a team of two for deployment and maintenance, and we have 50 users at present.
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.
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 was not capable of fixing that automatically or doing something to let me know that that problem was being caused by too many APs density was not the best response. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. We've had problems with interference, however, that issue aside, the value you get in terms of features and pricing is quite good. It's not the most mature solution, however, it does offer a pretty good set of features overall.
I am not going to use this solution anymore in the future, I am going to use Aruba. However, I do find this solution cost-effective, it could be suitable for those who do not need some of the advanced features competitors have. I rate Ubiquiti WLAN a seven out of ten.
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 it's overkill. You don't need that many. So, be conservative about the number of access points that are put out there. This is to say that you have to do a really good survey. Look for metal plating, look for the line of sight access, so that you put the access points where they can actually see each other. Make sure that the access points are not too close to each other, but not too far away. That's the whole thing. I go with 50 or 75 feet away, in tight spaces. Overall, I feel that this is a good product. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
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.
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.
