Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The feature that I really liked is the mesh feature. Currently, we are in quarantine, and the request of home users is that they need to cover the whole house or the whole indoor house. Mesh solution works really nice in Cambium environment. Being able to set up access points in advance is a good feature. It lets you set up the whole environment in your lab or any other place before deploying the access points.""Technical support has been good.""One could say that Cambium is a scalable solution.""The pricing of the product is very, very reasonable.""It is easy to deploy, and it is not that complicated. There are a lot of systems that are very complicated, and they require a special kind of training. Their response is also very slow, especially with the Chinese vendors, but with Cambium, we have not faced any issues. Everything is going well in terms of cooperation from Cambium. We are happy with them, their services, their cooperation, and their quick response. They are just amazing.""It's a good product and works well when there is a lot of interference.""The claim management feature is exceedingly simple.""What I find valuable is the fact that you don't need to purchase any license. Basically you just get the hardware for the access points, configure an IP and connect it with a switch."

"The setup is easy and user friendly.""The ease of the setup is one of its most valuable aspects.""I like that it's cheaper and inexpensive. It's also easy to use.""Setting it up wasn't so complicated. It is reliable. Security-wise, we didn't have much trouble, but that could be due to our environment. We haven't had so many attacks, at least up till now.""Ubiquiti is easier to install than Mikrotik.""The most valuable feature is the ease of setup.""Ubiquiti Wireless is easy to use, it's stable and flexible, and the performance is great. It is scalable as well.""I have found the most valuable features to be the ability to use the main centralized administration process and the internet."

Cons
"The installation and configuration are a bit complex.""The installation is difficult.""If they could move from the fixed wireless point to mobile, it will make a big change in the market. The cnPilot coverage should be covering big spaces. It should also have an external antenna, not a built-in antenna.""The Cambium user interface and configuration should be improved.""It has voucher generation. These vouchers are provided to the customers. It would be great if there is a possibility to integrate these vouchers with the system that vendors use to print the receipts. For example, if you go to Starbucks, they provide you a receipt, and in that receipt, you have the code for the Wi-Fi network. I would like some kind of integration or API that can be integrated into any other system for generating such receipts. It would be a really nice feature. It has the cnMaestro portal that normally an integrator sets up. When you deploy this solution to a user, rather than generating a Cambium account, I would like to share this console with the users so that they can at least see the stability of the network and not necessarily trust what I said. It also allows the customers in visualizing the way that they are connecting and the way the network is behaving. I have been in touch with the Cambium team for these features, but they don't yet have the final answer. It is kind of hard to get these solutions immediately. It is a bit challenging to bring these devices to Lima, Peru, or to get Cambium from the distributors. They need to import these devices.""Pricing tends to be higher than its competitors.""The solution needs to add an LTE solution and/or something in 3.5GHz.""The range of the product is disappointing so far."

"The range and maybe the quality of the signal can be improved. I had a feeling that the range wasn't long enough. Unfortunately, beyond a certain range, the signal was too weak. If I'm not mistaken, it must have been something like 100 or more than 100 meters, but I'm not sure. So, one improvement I wish for this equipment is to have a longer range, but that could mainly be due to the model we're using.""The external devices, the outdoor devices, are not so rugged. For example, for the weather that we have here in Florida, it doesn't hold up well even though it is supposed to be designed for outdoor use.""o if you are setting up any other third party product or any other different product, it sometimes can be a bit difficult. With Ubiquiti, you need to set up because you can adopt the product and that's it, where if it's not a Ubiquiti product it can sometimes be a difficult setup.""This solution should be more robust when it comes to connectivity and improve wireless technology.""We need an official distributor in Egypt as we don't have one right now.""We use different models of the solution but in some cases, the security could improve in the adaptive portal, be a little more robust, and easier to use.""The solution should offer simpler management for guests. That would be helpful in the hospitality industry, for example.""Could be more secure and the controller more user-friendly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"When it comes to licensing costs we have been using the Cambium devices on a trial basis.""I think the pricing is fine for Cambium.""There are no licensing fees, it's a one-time cost.""Its price is in the middle range."

More Cambium Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This solution is cheaper compared to others.""Ubiquiti Wireless is affordable.""I like the fact that it offers enterprise features at a cheap price. If you compare it with Cisco, it has most of the features that Cisco has been offering but at a lesser price. I am satisfied with its price.""The price of the solution is high and could be cheaper.""The price has been fair for what I have been using it for. There is no license for this solution.""The product is around $300 or $400 depending on the device. It's a one-time fee. There aren't ongoing licensing costs.""The product is expensive.""There are no licensing fees for this solution, but the cost is on the higher side."
