Save Money and Save Time
UniFi comes bundled with a nondedicated software controller that can be deployed on an on-site PC, Mac, or Linux machine; in a private cloud; or using a public cloud service. You also have the option of deploying the compact UniFi Cloud Key with built-in software.
The UniFi AP Flex HD features 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO technology.
Intuitive UniFi Controller Software
Configure and manage your APs with the easy-to-learn user interface.
Unlimited scalability: build wireless networks as big or small as needed. Start with one (or upgrade to a three-pack) and expand to hundreds while maintaining a single unified management system.
Initial 802.11ac Wave 1 SU-MIMO (Single-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technologies allow 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) technologies allow a Wave 2 AP, such as the UniFi AP Flex HD, to communicate with multiple clients at the same time – significantly increasing multi-user throughput and overall user experience. The following describes a 4-client scenario:
MU-MIMO Assuming the same conditions, a Wave 2 AP provides up to 75% improvement overall over a Wave 1 AP. This improvement increases wireless performance and/or serves more clients at the same performance level.
4×4 Spatial Streams At any single time, a Wave 2 AP can communicate with the following MU-MIMO clients:
– four 1×1 clients
– two 2×2 clients
– one 2×2 client and two 1×1 clients
– one 3×3 client and one 1×1 client
A 4×4 Wave 2 AP delivers up to 33% greater performance than a Wave 1 AP that is 3×3 in both radio bands.
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 4×4 spatial streams, the UniFi AP Flex HD can support more than triple the number of users than a typical Wave 1 AP.
In practice, the maximum number of users the UniFi AP Flex HD can support is limited by radio link airtime. This depends on the amount of traffic each device creates, types of devices, network configuration, and the presence of other APs on the same channel.
