Elements of Ubiquiti UniFi Wireless Networks
Key elements of the UniFi line of wireless networking products include an extensive catalog of Wave 2 wireless APs, high-performance managed switches, and security gateways for routing and firewall support. These components can be centrally managed by Ubiquiti's free UniFi Controller software. Your wireless environment can include non-UniFi infrastructure devices such as switches, routers and firewalls, but UniFi Controller tools only manage Ubiquiti UniFi devices. Ubiquiti also has a no-cost Mobile App for iOS and Google Android smartphones and tablets, allowing you to deploy Ubiquiti UniFi appliances for initial setup without forcing you to install and run the Ubiquiti UniFi Controller software.
Ubiquiti's UniFi family of Wi-Fi infrastructure devices and software offers end-to-end WAN solutions
The variety of products available within the Ubiquiti UniFi line allows you to design optimal wireless deployments for a broad range of usage scenarios. Entry-level UniFi wireless devices deliver the local and remote access required for telecommuters or small branch offices. High-performance or mesh wireless APs offer the throughput and RF coverage required for crowded environments like corporate headquarters or convention centers. Ubiquiti UniFi's Wi-Fi access points with high-power antennas provide enough RF signal strength to penetrate hotel and dormitory walls. Ruggedized Ubiquity UniFi Wi-Fi access points can withstand the harsh environments of venues such as dusty warehouses or open arenas.
All these Ubiquity UniFi wireless products can be set up, administered, tuned, secured, updated and debugged transparently across many different sites with a unified management system. Progent can assist you to assess your various Wi-Fi venues to decide which Ubiquity UniFi products make the best business sense and Progent can help you to plan the most cost-effective way to implement and administer them.
