The primary use cases of this solution include home use and hospitality, for example: small cafes, etc. It's used in most small businesses where they just need a few ITs and they need simple management, which also means that they're not too worried about the security.
We deployed it alongside Linksys. The way I'm using it is the way I have used Linksys. We can use it for WLAN deployments and outdoor wireless connectivity. We can use it for wireless hotspots - the long range type.
It's useful for me because I can extend more devices to my clients so that they can connect in the summertime. In the summertime, you have high traffic because everyone is on vacation, and they can connect to a wireless solution.
I used it briefly, primarily for a small deployment. That included the controller and a couple of access points. The deployment took place over the course of a few months. It was just for wireless connectivity in an office setup.
We have offices scattered around the building and some of them may be used for phoning in to access conference calls. Also, when someone comes in with a laptop, they can be wirelessly connected to our network. This is easier than using a wired connection.
We are a solution provider and Ubiquiti is one of the wireless products that we implement for our customers. We also implement wired products, such as switches and gateways. We primarily used this product for building industrial networks in production and manufacturing companies, especially warehouses. This includes offices, as well.
Our primary use case is for wireless networking but we've done more work on the industrial side. I've done work in medical, construction, and business corporates. There are quite a couple of corporate installations as well, but mostly in warehousing and that kind of thing.
We are a solution provider and this is one of the wireless solutions that we set up for my clients. Normally, we do office wireless solutions. I've done one or two home wireless solutions for people that can afford Ubiquity products. Mostly, we've implemented Ubiquity in warehouses. I've also installed it in a medical scenario and in a restaurant solution.
We use this solution for point to point. For example, if we have an ISP and you want to feed a company with bandwidth, we use the "add point to point" feature for wifi. We use it as an access point, but if you are talking about manifestation, this is for a very limited range, evaluated in a limited number of people. If you want to have a real ISP business, you need a different solution. It can be installed inside a system, and then you use that setup to broadcast a signal. It's very stable in most cases if we don't have Microsoft. We use the on-premises version of the solution.
I use Ubiquiti Wireless for WiFi deployment in my flat in Switzerland where I have one access point and two switches. The flat is about 80 to 100 square meters, so one access point is enough. I have also installed it in my parents' two-family house where there are four access points. The house has three floors so requires more access points to cover the whole area. A lot also depends on the thickness of the building's walls. If you want good coverage and you're using the 5Ghz frequency band, I think you need one access point per 60 square meters.
We want to have full control over the product so we use it on-premises. Our main customer base is in the city of Leyden for free outdoor wifi usage. We have about 100 access points around the city. We do interlinks and point links, as well as in harbors, campsites, and anywhere there is demand locally. We do service other cities, but Leyden is the main city. We do testing and development with routing data over wireless networks.
