Have you ever wondered why your WiFi system is slow, or who else is using the same channel as your system? UniFi’s newest Access Point, the UAP-AC-SHD, includes a number of new features that help network administrators better manage and understand their network. One of these exciting new features is airTime, which helps admins find out exactly this kind of information.
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.
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.
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.
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. In other words, MeshPoints were designed to expand coverage in the horizontal plane (one floor) and in the vertical plane (across multiple floors) — achieving three-dimensional or “3-D Mesh” home Wi-Fi coverage.
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).
A long time ago (at least in technology years and even before iTunes or iPhone), I started my career at Apple Computer as part of the wireless hardware team where my initial project would become the industry’s first 802.11g router with a blazing top speed of 54 Mbps! (Pretty fast at the time — this was 2003.)
Expand the limits of wide-area Wi-Fi. UniFi® Mesh technology simplifies Wi‑Fi infrastructure deployments by enabling nearly unlimited application use including towns, stadiums, conference halls, and concert venues.
At a time when almost every gadget is “smart” and telecommuting is changing how we work, managing a corporate network is more difficult than ever. Fortunately, as networks increase in complexity, the range of tools available to network administrators continues to expand as well. At Ubiquiti, we are constantly working to empower our customers by making it easier to integrate our product with these technologies.
