Components of Ubiquiti UniFi Wave Wi-Fi Networks
Key elements of the Ubiquiti UniFi line of Wi-Fi networking appliances include a rich portfolio of Wave 2 Wi-Fi APs, high-performance managed switches, and security gateways for routing and firewall services. All these components can be centrally managed by the free UniFi Controller toolset. Your wireless LAN can also include non-UniFi network products such as switches, routers and firewalls, but UniFi Controller software tools only manage UniFi products. Ubiquiti also has a no-cost Mobile App for iOS and Google Android smartphones and tablets, allowing you to configure Ubiquiti UniFi appliances for initial setup without requiring you to install the UniFi Controller software.
Ubiquiti's UniFi family of Wi-Fi network devices and software offers comprehensive WAN solutions
The variety of devices available within Ubiquiti's UniFi family allows you to design optimal wireless solutions for a broad range of usage scenarios. Value-priced UniFi Wi-Fi devices offer the local and remote access required for telecommuters or micro-branches. High-bandwidth or mesh wireless access points deliver the speed and RF coverage needed for crowded environments like corporate HQs or auditoriums. Ubiquiti UniFi's wireless APs with specialized antennas provide enough RF signal strength to penetrate hotel and dormitory walls. Hardened UniFi wireless APs can survive the severe conditions of venues like dusty warehouses or open stadiums.
All these UniFi wireless appliances can be configured, administered, tuned, protected, patched and debugged seamlessly across multiple locations with a unified management platform. Progent can help you to assess your current or planned Wi-Fi venues to determine which UniFi products are the best fit and Progent can assist you to design the most efficient way to implement and administer them.
Ubiquiti's UniFi technology lets you create centrally managed multi-site wireless networks with any combination of venues
Ubiquiti's UniFi Line of Wi-Fi APs
Ubiquiti's UniFi portfolio of wireless access points includes several product families intended for various applications, physical environments and IT budgets. Ubiquiti has indoor and outdoor wireless APs, and the series includes desktop, wall-mountable and ceiling-mount units.
