Fibre to the Home (FTTH) is quickly becoming the norm for internet users around the world. When experiencing its capabilities first hand, there’s no question as to why. Achieving low latency with high throughput over long distances, coupled with the GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Networks) format, makes FTTH a fantastic solution for deployments regardless of the scale. Ubiquiti has created a category of products 'UFiber' specifically suited for these type of installations. Here are some reasons why we believe you should consider UFiber for your FTTH deployments.
The demand for the ability to work remotely is the highest it has ever been. A number of solutions are available depending on your requirements. Here are a few ways you can get connected remotely using solutions offered by Scoop.
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.
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.
One of the most frequent problems we find in the wireless industry is poor link performance with the blame cast toward the hardware. Occasionally, this is out of the user's control, as the laws of physics dictate what is possible in each environment. However, there are various tools available at our disposal to ensure we make the most of the hardware. Here are 5 simple ways you can improve your Ubiquiti wireless links.
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.
Ubiquiti launches the Ubiquiti Speedtest, the first public test network integrated with enterprise network equipment. Ubiquiti Speedtest comprises a network of test servers and built-in speed test capabilities. Reports include uplink/downlink throughput and latency. Sharing the results is easy via email or social media.
What is QoS? QoS controls and manages network resources by setting priorities for specific types of data on the network. We use QoS to prevent the degradation of quality caused by packet loss, delay and jitter for sensitive applications such as real-time voice and video. This article aims to explain what options are available in EdgeOS and which may be most suited to your network.
GPS Synchronisation is a feature available on select airMAX products from Ubiquiti. When used, GPS synchronisation drastically reduces interference on co-located devices by syncing the devices' TX transmissions which would typically be 'heard' by half-duplex radios in co-located environments.
Ubiquiti selected the highest performance models from Ring, Nest, and Arlo and benchmarked them against the UniFi G4 Pro. This Blog post discusses the test results.
