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
