|Can I configure this UniFI Access Point directly with a Web Browser like all 'normal' Access Points ?|| No, all UniFi devices need a special "UniFI Controller', this software is free, and can be installed on any Windows, Mac or Linux pc/laptop. A dedicated embedded controller is also available.
| Is a UniFi Controller needed for the UniFI UAP to continue working ?|| No, not unless you use the hotspot functionality.
| I don't want to set up the software on a pc or laptop, can I get you to configure my UniFi UAP for me, so all I have to do is plug it in and it will work with my name and password etc ? || Yes! and it's FREE, just purchase this product, (note your Order Number) then CLICK HERE and fill in the details. Your new UniFi UAP will be shipped to you per-configured with your details, ready to use.
- 12 months, return to Freenet-Antennas, we look after your warranty.

Unified WiFi Management - Scale to Thousands
UniFi is a revolutionary WiFi system which combines carrier class performance, unlimited scalability, disruptive pricing, and a central management controller.
UniFi networks are ideal for WiFi networks where there is a number of APs that share the same configuration, or need to use WPA-Enterprise (RADIUS) authentication. Such networks are common in:
- Schools, Universities, etc
- Large buildings (e.g. warehouses, halls, ...)
- Internet Cafes
- Caravan Parks

Ubiquiti UniFi 802.11n MIMO Access Points
These come in a number of varieties:
- Indoor Units:
- The Indoor UniFi AP (UAP) is an Access Point, capable of 300 Mbps data rate speeds and links of up to 120m. The UAP
uses a clean industrial design that seamlessly blends into typical environments. All accessories are included to mount the devices either on a wall or ceiling.
- UniFi-Long Range (UAP-LR) Higher power version of the above.
- UniFi-Pro (UAP-PRO) Dual Radio (2.4 and 5 GHz) version, with 48V POE and Gigabit ethernet port.
- UniFi-AC (UAP-AC) Dual Radio (2.4 and 5 GHz) version, with 48V POE and Gigabit ethernet port, and 802.11AC (up to 1300 Mbps) data rate speeds.
- Outdoor Units:
- PicoFi This is an Access Point, capable of 150 Mbps data rate speeds and links of up to 120m.
All accessories are included to mount the devices either on a wall or pole. It comes with in a weatherproof enclosure thay can be use indoors or outdoors, and a 6 dBi omni antenna. This device is a PicoM2HP loaded with UniFi firmware.
- UniFi-Outdoor. This is similar to the RocketM2, and is functionally identical to a UniFi-Long Range (UAP-LR) . Can be combined with Ubiquiti 2.4 GHz MIMO Omni antennas.
- Common to All Units: These units feature the latest in WiFi 802.11n technology. Also included is Power Over Ethernet (POE) functionality and power supplies which allows both power and data to be carried over a single Ethernet cable to the device.
The UniFi Controller software (included free on CD) gives the system administrator a single graphical interface to manage all UniFi APs.
The UniFi Controller software is installed on a Mac or PC, and accessed using a web browser.
The UniFi controller allows the administrator to instantly provision thousands of UniFi APs, map out networks, quickly manage system traffic, and further provision individual Unifi AP devices.

Remote Firmware Upgrade
Save time and effort by remotely upgrading the firmware of your devices.
Guest Portal Support
Easy customisation and advanced options for Guest Portals. With the Guest Portal feature you can:
- Prevent access to local LANs (e.g. Internet access only)
- Redirect guests to a 'splash page' on 1st access - e.g. a Welcome page
- Add password authentication
Zero Handoff Roaming
Mobile users can roam seamlessly and maintain connections to their nearest AP. Zero Handoff Raoming makes multiple APs appear as a single AP. It works with any client device and does not require interaction from the client device.
Multi Site Management
A single UniFi Controller can manage multiple distributed deployments.
UniFi organizes and visualizes your network traffic in clear and easy-to-read graphs.
Easily install, configure, and manage all of your access points from one location.
Events & Alerts
UniFi makes it easy to keep track of alerts and recent events on your network(s).
Users & Guests
Keep track and control access of specific users/guests connected to your network(s).
One UniFied Network
Option to create one large wireless network across multiple APs that lets users seamlessly roam.
Real World Results
Here are some reports from real-world installations.
A single UniFi was placed on a vertical wall between two large lecture theaters at a Queensland University. The back of the UniFi covered one; the front
covered the other. The UniFi was wired to a hotspot server. Attendance was around 150 people, and they saw up to 130
leases on the hotspot server at one time! The whole thing worked perfectly, and the organisers were STUNNED at the UniFi coverage.
A customer installed *one* UniFi in the middle of a drink can container manufacturing factory; 250m by 200m in size, full of
machines and electrical noise. Every WiFi client device works *perfectly*. The customer is stunned.
We have experience with installations of 20, 50, and 100 UniFis with over 700 clients (stations).
The difference between Data Rate and Data Throughput Speeds
WiFi products are generally specified in terms of their maximum connection speed. For example:
While these are the maximum rates at which data is transfered between devices, there is significant overhead in the WiFi protocol, and not all data transfered is user data. The user data throughput is typically 50% of the data rate. That is the fastest a file transfer will typically go is about 22 Mbps over a 54 Mbps Wireless-G connection, or 150 Mbps over a 2-antenna Wireless-N connection.
- Wireless-G is referred to as a 54 Mbps technology as it has a maximum Data Rate of 54 Mbps.
- Wireless-N is often referred to as a 300 Mbps technology as it has a maximum Data Rate of 300Mbps when using the common 2-antenna configuration.
For the same reason (protocol overhead), the maximum user data throughput over a 100 Mbps ethernet port is always less than 100 Mbps.

Externally Rated CAT5 Cable
Grounding: It is imperative that this device is installed with a grounded POE cable. Failure to do so can result in the ethernet interface failing in an electrical (lightning) storm. Failure to provide proof that a suitable cable was used will result in any warranty claim being void.
