I also love the management software. It shows me who's connecting to my network, through which access point, and which SSID, and how much load they are putting on my network. It's really quite professional. I can't recommend this highly enough.
I've been reading everything I can about wireless access points and the various manufacturers over the past couple of months as I needed to upgrade our wireless network in the office.
Prior to this we were making do with a couple of residential wireless routers, which individually were top of their line (when purchased), but when trying to support a network of business users the residential routers really started to buckle under the pressure as more and more devices came online.
Generally with any wireless access point you can expect to cope with around 20-ish users before the quality of service drops below useable levels. The exact number depends on so many variables and concessions that it's not feasible to give hard and fast numbers. But be aware that even if a access point says it can handle 500 connections at once, it's very unlikely that those devices will get usable throughput if they're doing any more than idling.
With our residential routers it was difficult to do the following:
- Monitor quality of signal
- Monitor number of users using wifi
- Monitor number of users per access point
- Configure access points / upgrade software
All of the above have now been resolved for me by deploying a pair of UAP-PRO access points. The Ubiquiti free central control software allows me to have instant visibility into the state of my wireless network, how many users are connected, what their signal strength looks like, what their capabilities are, and to which access points they are connected.
In general I'm extremely happy with the quality of the network I've been able to assemble with the UAP-PRO devices for less than the price of a single true enterprise access point (not even considering the price that we'd need to spend on a controller, too).
I do have a few criticisms of the UAP-PRO / Ubiquiti Unifi networking product, however:
- The controller software, while great, can be a little funky to navigate and find the settings you want to change.
- Just about any change to do with the radios, SSIDs, and wireless network can immediately cause all access points to restart to reconfigure, without any sort of prompt to warn you it's about to happen. It makes fiddling with the controller software a little hazardous during the working day. Now, I know this should be configured in a lab environment ahead of time, but measuring the quality of the network when under load and tweaking the settings to experiment is difficult to simulate in a small office environment.
- The Zero-Handoff functionality (still in beta, using 3.1.9 here) worked ok for us, but at the cost of a much less reliable connection. I'm not going to 100% blame the hardware as we have a lot of interference in our office space, and when running zero-handoff all access points have to run on the same channel so were likely interfering with each other as well as the neighboring noise. ZH was nice to balance the load on the access points, as without it you're left to the devices picking an AP and roaming when the feel like it, which can leave more devices than desired connected to the first access point they see when entering the building.
Aside from the above I'm having a few issues with odd spikes of noise / loss of signal, but I'm going to blame this on interference within our environment and not on these devices.
Despite the problems mentioned above I'm happy with this product and think it provides great value for money. If you need more robust stats, more robust controls, and more enterprise management features, then you may want to look elsewhere, but you will pay a LOT more for those features.
It was concerned about the many reports of noisy devices, and mine is no exception. You can hear it working when you are downloading something and you are less than 10 feet away. Some may find this super annoying but it doesn't bother me at all. This is just lazy engineering and could be solved by the manufacturer without much trouble, but for some reason they just don't seem to care. In any case it's been no big deal for me.
Once you set it up you'll probably never touch it again and that is exactly what I wanted.
The configuration utility uses Java so you'll have to install that junk to set it up, if you haven't already. I'm not a fan of Java so I put that crap on a VM and set it up from there :-)

Keep in mind this is not a standard residential router with DNS/Switch it only serves as a wireless access point that connects to a router/switch. I actually disabled the wireless access from my service provider's modem and use this device solely as my wireless AP.
