Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Ubiquiti UniFi Switches.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
I would like to see the security features improved. It would be helpful to have better visibility into exactly what is going on in the network. In particular, I would like to have more control over the internal MAC addresses because I have none at the moment. Specifically - I see payloads with virtual MAC addresses - but the management software does not show these addresses in the statistics.
In terms of improvement, sometimes we have bugs.
The UniFi switches are for people who are not very into technology and if you have a big deployment with special configurations then this line of switches is very limited. It would be nice to have a single, unique management console or a GUI because as it is now, Ubiquiti switches have two management systems and it is annoying. The VPN technology in Ubiquiti products is really difficult for beginners who do not have the right skills. It would be very nice if they had a simple way to manage all of the VPN connections from a GUI. This would include from location to location, or from location to computer.
The management console could be improved, It's very, very slow. In the next release, I'd like to see some amalgamation of the two different consoles. I believe it's difficult to manage both the WiFi on the edge switches in the same console. Some more SFP+ ports would also be helpful. They should also try lowering the price of cloud management, it's mostly about management. If you can manage it quickly, and it's a little more cost-effective to manage it in the cloud, that would be a big improvement.
Some of the features needed to set up the solution are too complex. There's a lot of technical information that is required. The solution could use a central console to manage all devices.
The price of this solution should be more competitive. The technical support for this solution could be improved.
We've had issues with the power supply. I've had to change the power supply twice. I'm not sure what the issue is. We're still trying to work out why we're having problems with the switches and the cutting of the power supply. The solution should look into this to see if there is something wrong with the product.
