UniFi Controller Packed with Features: Use the UniFi Controller to provision thousands of UniFi APs, map out networks, quickly manage system traffic, and provision additional UniFi APs.
View Your RF Environment Use the RF environment functionality of the UniFi HD 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.
Detailed Analytics Use the configurable reporting and analytics to manage large user populations and expedite troubleshooting.
Wireless Uplink 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.
Guest Portal/Hotspot Support Easy customization 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. All UniFi APs include Hotspot functionality: • Built-in support for billing integration using major credit cards. • Built-in support for voucher-based authentication. • Built-in Hotspot Manager for voucher creation, guest management, and payment refunds. • Full customization and branding of Hotspot portal pages.
Multi-Site Management 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.
WLAN Groups The UniFi Controller can 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.
802.11ac Technology 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 HD AP, to communicate 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% improvement1 overall over a Wave 1 AP. This improvement increases wireless performance and/or serves more clients at the same performance level.
4x4 Spatial Streams At any single time, a Wave 2 AP can communicate with the following MU-MIMO clients:
• four 1x1 clients
• two 2x2 clients
• one 2x2 client and two 1x1 clients
• one 3x3 client and one 1x1 client
A 4x4 Wave 2 AP delivers up to 33% greater performance1 than a Wave 1 AP that is 3x3 in both radio bands.
Real-World Performance The UniFi HD AP is the first UniFi 802.11ac Wave 2 AP. Combining the performance increases from MU-MIMO technology and the use of 4x4 spatial streams, the UniFi HD AP delivers up to 125% greater performance1 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 UniFi HD AP.
High-Density Scenarios For high-density environments, such as a concert venue or outdoor fair where there are numerous clients in a relatively small space, we recommend the UniFi HD AP. Both Wave 1 and Wave 2 APs offer 28 independent (non-overlapping) channels: three for the 2.4 GHz band and twenty-five for the 5 GHz band, 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 4x4 spatial streams.
