Ubiquiti UAP-AC-HD Features
802.11AC Wave 2 MU-MIMO
Initial 802.11AC Wave 1 SU-MIMO (Single-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology allows an earlier-generation access point to communicate with only one client at a time. The 802.11AC Wave 2 MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology incorporated in to the Ubiquiti UAP-AC-HD UniFi access point allows for communication with multiple clients at the same time – significantly increasing multi-user throughput and overall user experience. The following describes a 5-client scenario:
- MU-MIMO Assuming the same conditions, a Wave 2 AP provides up to 75% improvement* overall over a Wave 1 AP. This improvement increases wireless performance and/or serves more clients at the same performance level.
- 4×4 Spatial Streams At any single time, a Wave 2 AP can communicate with the following MU-MIMO clients: Four 1×1 clients, two 2×2 clients, one 2×2 client and two 1×1 clients, one 3×3 client and one 1×1 client.
- Real-World Performance Combining the performance increases from MU-MIMO technology and the use of 4×4 spatial streams, the Ubiquiti UniFi AC HD AP delivers up to 125% greater performance than a typical Wave 1 AP.
- Client Compatibility For optimal performance, use MU-MIMO clients. SU-MIMO clients will also benefit and gain up to 10-20% greater performance when used with the Ubiquiti UniFi AC HD AP.
Scalable enterprise WiFi management
UniFi is the revolutionary WiFi system that combines enterprise performance, unlimited scalability, and a central management controller. The Ubiquiti UAP-AC-HD UniFi access point has a refined industrial design and can be easily installed using the included mounting hardware. Easily accessible through any standard web browser, the UniFi Controller software is a powerful software engine ideal for high-density client deployments requiring low latency and high uptime performance. Use the UniFi Controller software to quickly configure and administer an enterprise WiFi network – no special training required. RF map and performance features, real-time status, automatic UAP device detection, and advanced security options are all seamlessly integrated.
The UniFi Controller is packed with features
You can use the UniFi Controller to provision thousands of UniFi APs, map out networks, quickly manage system traffic, and provision additional UniFi APs while using the RF map to monitor and analyse radio frequencies for optimal AP placement, configuration, and troubleshooting. Advanced RF performance and configuration features include spectral analysis, airtime fairness, and band steering.
Wireless Uplink functionality enables wireless connectivity between APs for extended range. One wired UniFi AP uplink supports up to four wireless downlinks on a single operating band, allowing wireless adoption of devices in their default state and real-time changes to network topology. The UniFi Controller also offers configurable reporting and analytics to manage large user populations and expedite troubleshooting.
Guest Portal/Hotspot support
Easy customisation and options for Guest Portals include authentication, Hotspot setup, and the ability to use your own external portal server. Use UniFi’s rate limiting for your Guest Portal/Hotspot package offerings. Apply different bandwidth rates (download/upload), limit total data usage, and limit duration of use.
A single UniFi Controller running in the cloud can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed deployments and multi-tenancy for managed service providers. Each site is logically separated and has its own configuration, maps, statistics, guest portal, and administrator read/write and read-only accounts. broadbandbuyer offers a hosted Cloud Controller service that takes the hassle out of managing single or multi-tenancy sites and ensures your data remains secure and readily available to you when you need it. Please use the site search feature, the variations drop down boxes on this page or contact our UniFi Cloud specialists on 01908 760795 (Mon-Fri 9am to 5:30pm) if you require further information.
