Elements of Ubiquiti UniFi Wave Wi-Fi Networks
Major components of the UniFi family of wireless infrastructure appliances include a rich catalog of Wave 2 wireless access points, high-performance managed switches, and security gateways to handle routing and firewall support. All these devices can be managed by the free UniFi Controller software. Your wireless environment can include non-UniFi network products like switches, routers and firewalls, but UniFi Controller tools only manage UniFi devices. Ubiquiti also offers a no-cost Mobile App for iOS and Google Android smartphones and tablets, enabling you to deploy UniFi devices for preliminary operation without forcing you to install the Ubiquiti UniFi Controller application.
Ubiquiti's UniFi line of wireless infrastructure devices and software offers end-to-end WAN solutions
The selection of devices included in the UniFi portfolio makes it possible to create optimal wireless deployments for a wide array of usage scenarios. Value-priced UniFi Wi-Fi devices offer the on-premises and online connectivity required for home offices or small branch offices. High-bandwidth or mesh wireless APs deliver the throughput and RF coverage required for high client density sites like corporate HQs or auditoriums. Ubiquiti UniFi's Wi-Fi access points with specialized omni-directional or uni-directional antennas offer sufficient signal strength to penetrate hotel and dorm room walls. Ruggedized UniFi wireless access points can withstand the severe environments of sites like dusty warehouses or open-air arenas.
All these UniFi wireless products can be configured, managed, tuned, protected, updated and debugged seamlessly across many locations with a unified management platform. Progent can assist you to assess your various Wi-Fi venues to determine which UniFi products make the best business sense and Progent can help you to design the most efficient way to implement and administer them.
