Accelerating your Enterprise Wi-Fi with Ubiquiti and navitend

Accelerating your Enterprise Wi-Fi with Ubiquiti and navitend

Wi-Fi plays an integral role in most of our lives, personally and professionally. We use Wi-Fi in our homes, workplaces, neighborhood coffee shops, and even the stadiums where our favorite sports teams play. Not surprisingly, Network World estimates that the global Wi-Fi network will grow by 65 percent to approximately $25.2 billion in 2026¹. With all this growth and no sign of a slowdown, you need a Wi-Fi solution that works for you and your business. 

Enter Ubiquiti. A major player in the enterprise Wi-Fi market, Ubiquiti offers a diverse range of access points and switches for both indoor and outdoor network deployments¹. Their signature UniFi line is geared toward businesses seeking wired and/or wireless network solutions, as well as home users in the consumer market¹. In this article, we will highlight why Ubiquiti’s UniFi line should be the number-one choice for accelerating your enterprise Wi-Fi networks. 

One major benefit of Ubiquiti’s UniFi product range is its affordability. Consider the UniFi AC Mesh, for example. This 802.11ac indoor/outdoor wireless access point with plug and play mesh technology has an MSRP of only $99, making it a budget-friendly choice for companies of all sizes². Meanwhile, the AC Mesh Pro outdoor access point with plug and play mesh technology costs $199, but it is well worth the extra investment². Other UniFi products are similarly affordable, including the wall-mounted WiFi 6 access point at $179 and the WiFi 6 Lite at $99³. This demonstrates Ubiquiti’s commitment to providing businesses with affordable wireless connectivity solutions. 

Another advantage of installing UniFi is its capability to provide you with the high-speed internet you need to grow your company’s operations. The standard AC Mesh offers speeds of 1.176GB per second, while the AC Mesh Pro is even faster, at 1.75GB per second². Meanwhile, the WiFi BaseStation XG has a top speed of 5.2GB per second, making it a natural fit for high-density networks and large venues like sports arenas and convention centers, including the Oklahoma State University football stadium⁴.  

While affordability and speed are key attributes of Ubiquiti’s products, the UniFi line is also designed with customers in mind⁵. For example, companies installing UniFi technologies can set them up quickly and easily without assistance from IT professionals⁵. Also, unlike rival companies which charge licensing and software fees with every upgrade, Ubiquiti provides software and upgrades to UniFi users free of charge⁵. This saves you money so you can focus on what matters most: serving your customers and growing your business. 

UniFi access points are not just fast, affordable, and customer-friendly. They are also stylish and compact. For example, the UniFi AC Flex HD access point measures only 159.44 mm tall and 48.5 mm around, slightly larger than a small soft drink can⁶. Meanwhile, the AC Mesh measures 354x46x34 mm. These sleek units are “aesthetically pleasing to the eye” in any location, be it your home, your office, or a trendy hotel in the center of town⁵.  

Yet another key benefit of Ubiquiti’s UniFi for enterprise Wi-Fi is that it is highly scalable⁵. Even if you start with only one unit and expand it to a network of thousands over time, you can still control every one from a single location⁵. Additionally, with the UniFi Network mobile application, you can enjoy real-time insights for all your devices, upgrade your device firmware remotely, and manage Wi-Fi access points anywhere from Byram to Baton Rouge⁶. UniFi access points are high-density and low latency, with exceptional performance that helps keep your business Wi-Fi running like clockwork⁵.
