Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Our most valuable feature involves the 802.11ac, which operates at a very high level and has updated technology.""The technical support we have experienced has been good.""It's a reliable solution.""The security and the capabilities of the platform are the most valuable features.""The most valuable feature is the ease of configuration."

"It's an excellent option for small businesses.""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.""Easy to use and flexible.""It's a well priced solution and as far as I'm concerned, it's enterprise class.""We have found the product to be scalable.""Ubiquiti is easier to install than Mikrotik.""The ease of the setup is one of its most valuable aspects.""Having dual-band is important. Having compatibility with very old equipment on certain frequencies, for example on 2.4 and 5.8."

Cons
"We found the initial setup to be a bit complex due to the CLI commands.""The prices are high and should be reduced in order to be more competitive.""The solution could be more stable.""Documentation is an area that needs review. It should be more dynamic and it should be easier.""The pricing of the solution could always be better."

"The production is not very stable in our experience.""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 a better explanation or better documentation on how to use the onboard spectrum analyzer.""I would like to see more cloud features that some of the other competitors such as Cisco Meraki have that are very nice.""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.""We need an official distributor in Egypt as we don't have one right now.""They should have more VLAN features and a designing tool like a link planer.""I would prefer if the solution offered more integration capabilities."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is based on how much is ordered from the vendor and what type of discount they receive.""The pricing is good.""It was a one time fee and there are no costs in addition to this.""There is a license that is needed for the use of this solution."

More Cisco Wireless WAN Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We don't buy directly. We have our finance department that buys things. My speculation on the price is that because we buy from private companies and because the product is imported, people tend to give us at higher prices. This is due to the fact that it is government procurement. So, sometimes, they are not paid directly, and they have to go through the whole administrative process before they are paid. So, they tend to compensate by increasing the price, but I won't be able to say what is the exact price.""The product is around $300 or $400 depending on the device. It's a one-time fee. There aren't ongoing licensing costs.""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.""Ubiquiti Wireless is affordable.""The price has been fair for what I have been using it for. There is no license for this solution.""This solution is cheaper compared to others.""There are no licensing fees for this solution, but the cost is on the higher side.""The product is expensive."
