Deploy the UniFi UAP-XG Access Point in high-density environments requiring maximum wireless performance. The UniFi XG AP features simultaneous, dual-band, 4×4 MU-MIMO technology and convenient 802.3bt PoE compatibility. Three client radios deliver unparalleled Wi-Fi performance while a dedicated security radio provides persistent threat management. The UniFi XG AP is capable of complex operations (guest control, filtering, and other resource-intensive tasks) that may slow down a lesser-equipped AP. The primary port carries both data and PoE, while the secondary Gigabit Ethernet port is for bridging and also supports PoE input. Its sleek design seamlessly integrates into any environment and is compatible with existing UAP-AC-PRO mounts.
Ubiquiti UAP-XG Features
Scalable Enterprise Wi-Fi Management
The UniFi Ecosystem enables the system integrator to effectively and efficiently create wireless network designs of any size, from small to large, with the potential for unlimited scalability. The built-in, dedicated security and monitoring radio of the UniFi XG AP provides visibility into site performance, channel planning, and local interferers, allowing the integrator to properly evaluate performance and quickly respond to changing interference and security threat landscapes. Easily accessible through any standard web browser and the UniFi app (iOS or Android), the UniFi Controller software is a powerful software engine ideal for highdensity client deployments requiring low latency and high uptime performance.
For very high-density environments, such as a large auditorium or concert hall containing numerous clients in a relatively small space, we recommend the UniFi XG AP. Wave 1 and Wave 2 APs offer 28 independent (non-overlapping) channels: three for the 2.4 GHz band and twenty-five for 5 GHz, including DFS channels. When you use the 2.4 GHz band in a high-density location, you encounter self-interference and channel saturation. When you use the 5 GHz band, you can deploy smaller cells (coverage areas), so you can support more clients in any cell that deploys more than one AP. With the advantages of MU-MIMO technology and 4×4 spatial streams, the UniFi XG AP can support more than triple the number of users per radio than a typical Wave 1 AP.
Initial 802.11ac Wave 1 SU-MIMO (Single-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology allows an earlier-generation AP, such as the UniFi AC Pro AP, to communicate with only one client at a time. 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology allows a Wave 2 AP, such as the UniFi XG AP, to communicate with multiple clients at the same time – significantly increasing multi-user throughput and overall user experience.
The UniFi XG AP delivers unprecedented wireless awareness and security, including tools for real-time spectrum monitoring, airtime utilisation analytics, and intrusion detection/prevention.
