Alethea recently rated Ubiquiti’s UniFi AP AC SHD Wave 2 Access Point as the highest performer overall, compared to competing models, in their benchmark testing. Now, we take a look at the reasons why Ubiquiti is such a great choice for enterprise WiFi.
Established in 2005, Ubiquiti Networks has manufactured high-end, innovative devices for wireless networks for over a decade - bringing exceptional performance at market-disrupting prices.
Recently, Alethea Communications performed third-party benchmark testing that focused on high-end 4x4 access points (APs) with one 2.4 GHz radio and one 5 GHz radio. Tests were conducted in a realistic environment, using up to 100 real client devices to provide accurate performance data – for the full report follow this link.
The results saw the Ubiquiti UAP-AC-SHD scoring the highest overall in comparison to the other devices tested, and it also represents the most cost-effective solution.
So why is Ubiquiti’s UniFi range the best enterprise WiFi solution?
Here are our top 5 reasons:
Ubiquiti UniFi Access Points provide great value, easy installation and a sleek design in comparison to other industry providers. With the total throughput of the AC variant at 1167+ Mbps and the AC-Wave variant at 2500+ Mbps, they can also deliver the high performance needed by advanced requirements. With a selection of APs to suit any performance needs however, you can select a model to match both your requirements and your budget.
As well as being a more cost-effective hardware purchase compared to alternatives, the installation and maintenance costs of UniFi are also consistently lower when measured against competitors. There are no charges for software licensing or maintenance fees, making it a fantastic, affordable enterprise wireless solution in both the short and long term.
The UniFi Software-Defined Networking platform is an intuitive system of managing network devices from a single interface, providing robust configuration, control, local and cloud access. Plus, the UniFi mobile app enables easy management on the go to help monitor and manage UniFi networks wherever you are. The UniFi range is also optimised for user experience, ensuring a simple configuration process.
Ease of Deployment
As well as user-friendly configuration, UniFi AP device deployment is simplified through the UniFi Controller software (part of their SDN platform), which delivers powerful management of remote sites – all within a single, unified software controller. As well as reducing time to deployment and helping to streamline operational costs, the Controller Software also increases overall network safety by making it easier to update and maintain remote devices.
The UniFi Controller allows the configuration of thousands of UniFi AP’s and is also able to manage system traffic quickly. There is the opportunity to upload custom maps to gain a clear visual representation of your wireless network and its general health, ensuring that you have access to key insights, while always having maximum control over your networking estate.
