Product Spotlight: UniFi® Enterprise Wi-Fi System by Ubiquity

At EAS we have great partners who provide us with cool and unique products and solutions for our varied clients. Today we are highlighting the UniFi® Enterprise Wi-Fi System by Ubiquity.

 

Scalable and Unified Enterprise Wi-Fi Management

The UniFi® Enterprise Wi-Fi System is a scalable enterprise access point solution designed to be easily deployed and managed. UniFi Access Point (AP) indoor models have a sleek design and can be easily mounted to a ceiling tile or wall using the included mounting hardware. UniFi AP (UAP) outdoor models have a form factor built to last outdoors. The UniFi Enterprise Wi-Fi System includes the UniFi Controller software. The software installs on any PC, Mac, or Linux machine within the network and is easily accessible through any standard web browser. Using the UniFi Controller software, an Enterprise Wi-Fi network can be quickly configured and administered without any special training. Real-time status, automatic UAP device detection, map loading, and advanced security options are all seamlessly integrated. Features:

 

Save money and save time – Unlike traditional enterprise Wi-Fi systems that utilize a hardware controller, UniFi comes bundled with a non-dedicated software controller that can be deployed on an on-premise PC, Mac, or Linux machine; in a private cloud; or using a public cloud service.

Powerful Hardware – The UniFi Access Points feature Wi-Fi 802.11n MIMO technology for superior performance in the 2.4 and/or 5 GHz bands, and ranges up to 600 ft.

Intuitive UniFi Controller Software – Install, configure, and manage all of your UniFi APs with the intuitive and easy-to-learn UniFi Controller user interface.

Expandable – Unlimited scalability. Build wireless networks as big or small as needed. Start with one (or upgrade to a three-pack) and expand to thousands while maintaining a single unified management system.

 

UniFi Controller:

Packed with Features – Use the UniFi Controller to provision thousands of UniFi APs, map out networks, quickly manage system traffic, and provision additional UniFi APs.

Breakthrough RF Map – Use the RF map to monitor and analyze radio frequencies for optimal AP placement, configuration, and troubleshooting

Detailed Analytics – Use the configurable reporting and analytics to manage large user populations and expedite troubleshooting

Wireless Uplink -Wireless Uplink functionality enables wireless connectivity between APs for extended range. One wired UniFi AP uplink supports up to four wireless downlinks on a single operating band, allowing wireless adoption of devices in their default state and real-time changes to network topology

Guest Portal/Hotspot Support – Easy customization and options for Guest Portals include authentication, Hotspot setup, and the ability to use your own external portal server. Use UniFi’s rate limiting for your Guest Portal/Hotspot package offerings. Apply different bandwidth rates (download/upload), limit total data usage, and limit the duration of use.

All UniFi APs include Hotspot functionality: Built-in support for billing integration using major credit cards and voucher-based authentication as well as built-in Hotspot Manager for voucher creation, guest management, and payment refund. Lastly, full customization and branding of Hotspot portal pages.

Multi-Site Management – A single UniFi Controller running in the cloud can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed deployments and multi-tenancy for managed service providers. Each site is logically separated and has its own configuration, maps, statistics, guest portal, and administrator read/write and read-only accounts.

WLAN Groups – The UniFi Controller can manage flexible configurations of large deployments. Create multiple WLAN groups and assign them to an AP’s radio.

Extend Your Coverage: With the UniFi Controller software running in a NOC or in the cloud, administrators can extend and centrally manage wide areas of indoor and outdoor coverage using any combination of UniFi APs.
