"What I found most valuable in Ubiquiti Wireless is that it's priced competitively, compared to other brands available in the market. From a price competitiveness standpoint, it's a product I would recommend. I also find Ubiquiti Wireless quite reliable, at least for me using it as a home access point, it seems to serve its purpose. I also like that with Ubiquiti Wireless, you can build a very modular network, so you could change out your router to use a Ubiquiti router if you want to. The solution also has gateway equipment and all, so I like the modular concept of Ubiquiti Wireless. Another feature I find valuable in the solution is monitoring. It is pretty good. For example, as a home user, I have the unified app on my computer, so I'm able to watch how my APs are performing."
"We have found the product to be scalable."
"The range is usually pretty good, which is the most important thing to use because more or less, all wireless access points are the same."
"The solution is easy to use and flexible."
"It is very stable and the equipment lasts quite a long time."

"It needs to increase its strength in capacity."

"Improvements can be made in the wireless fabric."
"We have had some problems connecting to the internet with Cisco Wireless WAN, but it is not the equipment or configuration. Additionally, the integration with access control security could improve."

"I hope Cisco can improve the capacity to service a high density of users in a small area, as currently we have difficulties with this."
"The initial setup and deployment should be easier."
"This product has issues with scalability and ease of manageability at scale. Security also needs to be improved, when compared to its competitors. Ubiquiti Wireless doesn't have any support that you can call. They only have an online portal where you can access support documentation, but it's not great. You have to figure out issues and solutions for yourself."
"We need an official distributor in Egypt as we don't have one right now."
"One of the Ubiquiti access points broke down, and it can't be used. It's still down now, so overall Ubiquiti hasn't been a good experience for me."
"The technical support is less than stellar."
"This solution should be more robust when it comes to connectivity and improve wireless technology."
"In Ukraine at least, it's a problem when it comes to buying the hardware. For example, I made a request for 20 switches a few months ago. The solution needs to have worldwide availability."

"After upgrades to the interface, some features disappear."
