Ubiquiti Launches Wave 2 Access Point with Market Leading Performance and Price

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBNT) (“Ubiquiti”) today announced its first 802.11ac Wave 2 Enterprise Wi-Fi Access Point: the UniFi AC-HD allows Ubiquiti’s rapidly growing base of enterprise customers to harness the power of 802.11ac Wave 2 technology through the UniFi Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Platform.  With an MSRP of only $349, the UniFi AC-HD is the highest performing and most disruptively priced enterprise access point available. 

Superior Performance and Price

The UniFi AC-HD provides superior performance and price when compared to incumbent Wave2 access points.

The UniFi AC-HD has an MSRP of only $349 (USD) and users are provided free use of the UniFi Controller with no separate software or support fee.  The UniFi AC-HD dramatically reduces the investment customers must make in their networking infrastructure when comparing the published list prices for comparable Wave2 access points from Meraki at $1,399, Aruba at $1,395 and Ruckus at $1,295.

The UniFi AC-HD

The UniFi AC-HD AP features simultaneous, dual-band, 4x4 MU-MIMO technology and convenient 802.3at PoE+ compatibility. 

  • Wave 2 Technology.  802.11AC Wave 2 MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology allows a Wave 2 AP to communicate with multiple clients at the same time – significantly increasing multi-user throughput and overall user experience.
  • Radio Hardware Acceleration.  Independent 2.4GHz and 5GHz dedicated hardware offload for maximized multi-user throughput and reduced latency.
  • CPU Hardware Acceleration.  Dedicated hardware offload for QoS, Guest Control, and Client Management.
  • Optimized for MU-MIMO.  Genetically optimized antenna arrays for maximal utilization of 802.11ac Wave2 MU-MIMO Beam Forming.
