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.
Packed with Features
The UniFi Controller can provision thousands of UniFi APs, map out networks, quickly manage system traffic, and add more UniFi APs.
View Your RF Environment
Use the RF environment functionality of the UniFi XG AP to detect and troubleshoot nearby interference, analyze radio frequencies, choose optimal AP placement, and configure settings.
Powerful RF Performance Features
Advanced RF performance and configuration features include spectral analysis, airtime fairness, and band steering.
The UniFi Controller provides configurable reporting and analytics to manage large user populationsand expedite troubleshooting by the system integrator.
Manage flexible configurations of large deployments. Create multiple WLAN groups and assign them to an AP’s radio. Each WLAN can be VLAN tagged. Dynamic VLAN tagging per Wi-Fi station (or RADIUS VLAN) is also supported.
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.
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 accounts.
Guest Portal/Hotspot Support
Use the UniFi Controller to quickly customise the configuration for Guest Portals, including authentication, Hotspot setup, and the option to use your own external portal server. For your Guest Portal/Hotspot package offerings, take advantage of UniFi’s rate limiting capabilities. Apply different bandwidth rates (download / upload), limit total data usage, and limit duration of use.
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.
Assuming the same conditions, a Wave 2 radio provides up to 75% improvement beyond a Wave 1 radio. 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 radio 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
Combining twice the number of 5 GHz radios and four times the associations per radio, the UniFi XG AP delivers an order of magnitude more performance than a typical 802.11ac Wave 1 AP.
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 UniFi XG AP.
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.
The UniFi XG AP delivers unprecedented wireless awareness and security, including tools for real-time spectrum monitoring, airtime utilisation analytics, and intrusion detection/prevention.
Dedicated Spectral Security Radio
Using a persistent spectral scan, the UniFi XG AP constantly monitors the RF environment to check for both potential malicious activity and the best channel for network performance. The dedicated security radio allows the UniFi XG AP to scan for security threats, such as malicious frames and rogue access points, while maintaining throughput for client devices. At the same time, UniFi, in conjunction with the UniFi XG AP, analyzes the wireless spectrum and airtime utilisation to automatically select the best channel to optimise performance across your installation.
The UniFi XG AP’s dedicated security radio provides persistent threat management to act as a Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) and Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS). Such a dedicated radio affords frequency agility – meaning all available Wi-Fi channels are monitored constantly for threats – not just the channels the AP is using.
Spectrum and Wi-Fi Packet Analysis
The airView tool offers real-time visibility into your RF spectrum. Because it uses the dedicated security radio, it analyzes all of your available RF channels without affecting performance or disrupting client activity. The airTime tool visualises and analyzes how the APs use channels in real time. The breakdown is by frame type, clients, neighboring APs, protocols, and interference.
