Ubiquiti's UniFi line of Wi-Fi products includes indoor and outdoor Wave 2 Wi-Fi APs, security gateways, managed switches, IP phones, and cameras. Ubiquiti UniFi devices installed across multiple sites with thousands of Wi-Fi APs can be set up and managed via Ubiquiti's free UniFi Controller software, which simplifies provisioning, discovery, control, debugging and reporting.
Ubiquiti's browser-based UniFi Controller software can be deployed on a PC, Mac, or Linux computer located on-premises or in a private or public cloud. The UniFi software offers an end-to-end, budget-friendly and expandable Wi-Fi management solution for environments that span from mini-branch offices to hotels, campuses, auditoriums and multi-site enterprise networks.
Progent offers quick access to the skills of seasoned wireless consultants who can help organizations to determine the advantages of UniFi technology for your company and help you to plan, install, manage, and debug your UniFi network. Progent can also carry out a Wi-Fi site survey to assist you to choose, provision, and place UniFi Wi-Fi access points for optimal signal coverage and performance.
Progent's certified network security consultants can help you to configure Ubiquiti UniFi's modern security features to build a protected Wi-Fi ecosystem. Also, Progent can provide remote management plus backup services for your Ubiquiti UniFi Wi-Fi network, using either a locally installed UniFi Controller or an online UniFi Controller system managed by Progent.
Elements of Ubiquiti UniFi Wave Wi-Fi Networks
Key components of the UniFi family of Wi-Fi infrastructure products include a rich catalog of Wave 2 Wi-Fi access points, advanced managed switches, and security gateways to handle routing and firewall services. All these elements can be managed by the free UniFi Controller toolset. Your Wi-Fi LAN can also include non-UniFi infrastructure devices like switches, routers and firewalls, but UniFi Controller tools only monitor and control UniFi devices. Ubiquiti also has a free Mobile App for Apple iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, enabling you to configure UniFi appliances for preliminary setup without forcing you to install and run the UniFi Controller application.
Ubiquiti's UniFi family of Wi-Fi network appliances and software offers end-to-end WAN solutions
The variety of devices included in Ubiquiti's UniFi line allows you to create efficient Wi-Fi solutions for a wide range of venues. Entry-level UniFi Wi-Fi appliances offer the on-premises and remote connectivity required for telecommuters or small branch offices. High-bandwidth or mesh wireless APs deliver the throughput and RF coverage needed for crowded sites such as enterprise HQs or auditoriums. Ubiquiti UniFi's wireless APs with specialized antennas offer enough signal strength to pass through hotel and dormitory walls. Ruggedized UniFi wireless access points can stand up to the harsh environments of venues like dusty warehouses or open-air stadiums.
All these UniFi wireless appliances can be set up, managed, tuned, secured, patched and debugged seamlessly across many different locations via a centralized management platform. Progent can help you to analyze your various Wi-Fi venues to determine which UniFi devices are the best fit and Progent can assist you to design the most cost-effective way to deploy and administer them.
