Components of UniFi Wi-Fi Networks
Major elements of Ubiquiti's UniFi family of wireless networking products include an extensive portfolio of Wave 2 Wi-Fi APs, advanced managed switches, and security gateways for routing and firewall services. These elements can be centrally managed by the free UniFi Controller toolset. Your Wi-Fi LAN can include non-UniFi infrastructure products like switches, routers and security appliances, but UniFi Controller software tools only manage UniFi devices. Ubiquiti also has a no-cost Mobile App for Apple iOS and Android handheld devices, allowing you to configure Ubiquiti UniFi appliances for initial setup without forcing you to install the Ubiquiti UniFi Controller application.
Ubiquiti's UniFi family of Wi-Fi infrastructure devices and software offers comprehensive WAN solutions
The selection of devices included in Ubiquiti's UniFi portfolio makes it possible to create optimal wireless solutions for a broad range of usage scenarios.
