UniFi – New Feature Showcase: Debugging Metrics

As the UniFi Controller has evolved, it has been our goal to make it easy for administrators to get the tools they need to make their UniFi network perform as it should. In UniFi Controller version 5.6.x, we have introduced an additional statistics dashboard- Debugging Metrics. This new view presents administrators with a collection of data that we think should make it easier to identify and fix common performance issues.… continue reading

airTime: What’s Eating Your Wi-Fi Performance?

Have you ever wondered why your WiFi system is slow, or who else is using the same channel as your system? You have probably seen the channel utilization graphs like this: This example shows that 27% of channel 6 in the 2.4 GHz band is in use. What makes up that 27%, and where does it come from? Are your client devices the reason for the traffic?… continue reading

A Video Introduction to UniFi with Troy Hunt

We are pleased to announce a new video series “Introduction to UniFi” is available on our YouTube channel. These videos were created by Troy Hunt, who in addition to being a Pluralsight Author, Microsoft Regional Director, internet security expert and tech blogger, is a UniFi user and enthusiast (see his website here). He has posted a number of helpful blog posts about his home UniFi deployments- and put together this course to help provide a better introduction for those who may not be as familiar with the product line or who are interested in giving UniFi a try.… continue reading

Moving Beyond the Conventional Wireless Network with UniFi Mesh

We recently began shipping our newest product line of UniFi access points, the UniFi AC Mesh. Our UniFi AC Mesh line includes two models: the base UniFi AC Mesh (UAP-AC-M) and the UniFi AC Mesh Pro (UAP-AC-M-PRO). These access points offer benefits consistent with the rest of the UniFi AC products, but also add some new features that can help administrators better meet their network’s needs.… continue reading

UniFi Group Configuration

In UniFi Controller versions 5.3.X and later, we added a feature called Group Configuration. Group Configuration allows network administrators to configure entire groups of UniFi APs at once. This post will provide an overview of how this feature works and how it can be useful.  Group Configuration offers particular value to large-scale deployments, where individually configuring several APs could take hours.… continue reading

The Evolution of Home Wi-Fi Part 2

Part 2: Welcome to “3-D Mesh” Home Wi-Fi

In Part 1, I talked about the inspiration behind the AmpliFi router design, but you may have noticed the AmpliFi Mesh Wi-Fi system also includes unique pieces of hardware called “MeshPoints.” As proud as I am about the AmpliFi router, I believe the MeshPoint is the star of the platform. The design represents the ultimate example of form meeting function, powering complete ubiquitous Wi-Fi coverage in any home, including multi-story homes.… continue reading

When Will We Hit The Limits of Gigabit Ethernet with Wi-Fi?

Since the advent of the Internet, a number of technological improvements were necessary to facilitate the speeds that users have come to expect. From dial-up to DSL, from 802.11b to 802.11ac, to name a few- these changes have helped enrich Internet experience and accessibility. Similarly Wi-Fi brought much added convenience over wired connections but reduced speeds. To mitigate these limitations, Wi-Fi technology has evolved to increase speeds, as have wired standards (for example, from 10/100 to Gigabit Ethernet).… continue reading

The Evolution of Home Wi-Fi

Part 1: From Apple AirPort to AmpliFi Mesh Technology

Robert J. Pera Robert Pera started his career at Apple Computer, where he was a hardware engineer following M.S. and B.S. studies in Electrical Engineering.
