"Having dual-band is important. Having compatibility with very old equipment on certain frequencies, for example on 2.4 and 5.8.""The range is usually pretty good, which is the most important thing to use because more or less, all wireless access points are the same.""We have found the product to be scalable.""I like the simplicity, the ease of use.""The solution is easy to use and flexible.""Ubiquiti Wireless is easy to use, it's stable and flexible, and the performance is great. It is scalable as well.""The ease of the setup is one of its most valuable aspects.""It's an excellent option for small businesses."

Cons
"The pricing of the solution could always be better.""The solution could be more stable.""We found the initial setup to be a bit complex due to the CLI commands.""Documentation is an area that needs review.

"I would like a better explanation or better documentation on how to use the onboard spectrum analyzer.""This solution should be more robust when it comes to connectivity and improve wireless technology.""The control system can be improved by making it easier.""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.""I would like local support from the parent company.""Could be more secure and the controller more user-friendly.""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.""The solution should offer simpler management for guests. That would be helpful in the hospitality industry, for example."
