UniFi has become an exceedingly popular choice for small to medium (and even large) enterprise deployments. Although these units are 'plug-and-play', for the most part, it doesn't guarantee that they are automatically configured to function optimally for their environment. If you are using UniFi and have felt that it should be performing better, take a look at these tips which will assist you in optimising each of your installations.
Long Term Evolution (LTE), also known as 4G, is a technology designed to deliver data over the radio wave spectrum typically between 700MHz-2600MHz. With the demand for bandwidth increasing, technology providers like MikroTik have adapted their product line to include several high-performance LTE devices. Choosing MikroTik over conventional entry-level LTE products has many advantages. It is packed with functionality and is available in different form factors with high-gain MIMO antennas to cater for long-distance applications. All models include PoE which allows users to make the most of their signal without introducing long antenna cables with associated loss.
PoE (or Power over Ethernet) is the method of transmitting both power and data across the internal cores of an Ethernet cable and is ideal for getting power to hard-to-reach areas. There are many variants available and the type of PoE you use is ultimately decided by your equipment's capabilities.
One of the biggest challenges with indoor wireless installations is ensuring you have sufficient coverage - meaning no dead zones and good quality connections in all the necessary areas. While indoor wireless connections offer simple installation and very few cables, they are unpredictable and easily affected by numerous external factors such as walls (obstructions) and interference from other wireless devices. Thankfully, there are a few products available to users to easily extend existing coverage when it does not live up to your expectations.

For anyone installing or managing a MikroTik router or system, knowing how to perform a Netinstall on the device is a valuable bit of knowledge to have, as it allows you to recover the unit should it crash or start failing in some way. When experiencing an issue with a MikroTik router, it is typically due to corruption of its software or failure of the software to perform a certain process. Performing a Netinstall on the affected router will format and re-install the RouterOS onto that device and should fix the issue at hand.
Ubiquiti have decided to remove all pricing plans. That means exactly what it says — UNMS Cloud is now completely free of charge! Having a reliable network and business management tool is crucial for any WISP. Unfortunately, some companies offer these types of tools at inflated prices that affect an already tight budget. Ubiquiti's goal is to empower anyone who would like to start a new WISP to help provide internet connectivity where coverage is lacking, and this is their contribution to this effort.
