Ubiquiti's Unifi platform has changed the way we look at enterprise Wi-Fi deployments. Their free, easy-to-use controller software coupled with a wide range of hardware options make it a prime choice for wifi integrators. Using hardware controllers on site have become more and more popular as this allows for a dedicated piece of equipment for management and reduces risk of failure. UniFi takes this a step further and now allows for integration between UniFi Wi-Fi and their latest surveillance software, UniFi Protect.
Periodically, Ubiquiti hires Alethea Communications to perform third-party testing for their Access Point (AP) products. Alethea specializes in network stress testing services and products. They use various test methods with simulated and real client devices. This test used real client devices in a realistic environment with up to 100 devices. This method gives very reliable data for real-world performance.
Tested APs - This test focused on high-end 4×4 APs with one 2.4 GHz radio and one 5 GHz radio. The tested APs and their costs are summarized below.
Before setting up, mounting or configuring any wireless links, there are a few questions that you need to ask yourself before going ahead with the installation. Am I doing a PTP (point to point) or PTMP (Point to multi-point) link? Do I have clear line of sight to the other end/s? What equipment do I need to use? Answering these questions will help you plan your links to get the most out of your deployments. PTP or PTMP? This may seem like a trivial question but it is quite important. Depending on your answer to this question, all of the other questions will follow suit and be adapted to work for the answer. Must I cover a large number of connections coming back to a single point, or will there be individual links consisting of just two devices per link? PTMP topologies will generally achieve less bandwidth due to shared access to the wireless network.

A lot of WISPs are familiar with network slowdown. You set up your network and go about your business, until calls start coming in that the internet is slow; or maybe your own internal network management system sends you some alerts. Everything was fine earlier, what’s changed now?
Thousands of network operators across the world got their start with airMAX®M, and continue to enjoy great success today on every continent. Without the effort of all these entrepreneurs, the internet would be nothing more than a dream for millions of people today. And without affordable airMAX M equipment, these operators wouldn’t have been able to become the WISPs they are.
UBNT recently released the two latest versions of airOS – v8.5.8 for airMAX AC, and v6.1.8 for airMAX M. Both of these firmware releases have some interesting new features and fixes to explore, and the airMAX team as well as the beta testing community have run both of these releases through their paces. Here are some of the key features and fixes from both releases:
