Elements of Ubiquiti UniFi Wireless Networks
Major elements of the Ubiquiti UniFi family of wireless infrastructure products include a rich portfolio of Wave 2 Wi-Fi access points, high-performance managed switches, and security gateways for routing and firewall services. These devices can be centrally managed by Ubiquiti's free UniFi Controller software. Your wireless LAN can include non-UniFi network products such as switches, routers and security appliances, but UniFi Controller tools only monitor and control Ubiquiti UniFi products. Ubiquiti also has a free Mobile App for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, enabling you to deploy UniFi devices for initial setup without requiring you to install the UniFi Controller application.
Ubiquiti's UniFi family of Wi-Fi infrastructure devices and software offers comprehensive WAN solutions
The variety of products available within Ubiquiti's UniFi line allows you to create optimal wireless deployments for a broad range of use cases. Entry-level UniFi Wi-Fi appliances deliver the on-premises and remote access required for home offices or micro-branches. High-bandwidth or mesh wireless APs provide the throughput and coverage needed for crowded environments like enterprise HQs or auditoriums. UniFi's wireless APs with specialized omni-directional or uni-directional antennas offer enough RF signal strength to pass through hotel and dorm room walls. Hardened UniFi wireless access points can withstand the harsh conditions of venues such as dusty warehouses or open-air stadiums.
All these Ubiquity UniFi Wi-Fi products can be configured, managed, optimized, protected, patched and debugged transparently across many different sites via a centralized management system. Progent can assist you to assess your current or planned Wi-Fi environments to decide which Ubiquity UniFi devices are appropriate and Progent can assist you to design the most efficient way to implement and administer them.
