Scalable Enterprise Wi-Fi Management
Features
UniFi® is the revolutionary Wi-Fi system that combines
enterprise performance, unlimited scalability, and a
central management controller. The UniFi AC HD AP has a
refined industrial design and can be easily installed using
the included mounting hardware.
Save Money and Save Time UniFi comes bundled with a
non-dedicated 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.
Easily accessible through any standard web browser, the
UniFi Controller software is a powerful software engine
ideal for high-density client deployments requiring low
latency and high uptime performance.
Use the UniFi Controller software to quickly configure
and administer an enterprise Wi-Fi network – no special
training required. RF map and performance features,
real-time status, automatic UAP device detection, and
advanced security options are all seamlessly integrated.
Powerful Hardware The UniFi AC HD AP features the
latest in Wi-Fi 802.11ac Wave 2 MU‑MIMO technology.
Intuitive UniFi Controller Software Configure and
manage your APs with the easy-to-learn user interface.
Expandable Unlimited scalability: build wireless
networks as big or small as needed. Start with one (or
upgrade to a five‑pack) and expand to thousands while
maintaining a single unified management system.
Extend Your Coverage
With the UniFi Controller software running in a NOC or in the cloud, administrators can manage multiple sites: multiple,
distributed deployments and multi-tenancy for managed service providers. Below are some deployment examples.

University/Industrial Campus
Internet Cafe
Hotel

UniFi Controller
Packed with Features
Use the UniFi Controller to provision thousands
of UniFi APs, map out networks, quickly manage
system traffic, and provision additional UniFi APs.
View Your RF Environment
Use the RF environment functionality of the UniFi
AC HD AP to detect and troubleshoot nearby
interference, analyze radio frequencies, choose
optimal AP placement, and configure settings.
Powerful RF Performance Features
Advanced RF performance and configuration
features include spectral analysis, airtime fairness,
and band steering.
Dashboard
UniFi provides a visual representation of your network’s status
and delivers basic information about each network segment.
Detailed Analytics
Use the configurable reporting and analytics to
manage large user populations and expedite
troubleshooting.
Wireless Uplink
Wireless Uplink functionality enables wireless
connectivity between APs for extended range. One
wired UniFi AP uplink supports up to four wireless
downlinks on a single operating band, allowing
wireless adoption of devices in their default state
and real-time changes to network topology.
Guest Portal/Hotspot Support
Easy customization and options for Guest Portals
include authentication, Hotspot setup, and the
ability to use your own external portal server. Use
UniFi’s rate limiting for your Guest Portal/Hotspot
package offerings. Apply different bandwidth rates
(download/upload), limit total data usage, and
limit duration of use.
RF Map
Monitor UniFi APs and analyze the surrounding RF environment.
All UniFi APs include Hotspot functionality:
• Built-in support for billing integration using
major credit cards.
• Built-in support for voucher-based
authentication.
• Built-in Hotspot Manager for voucher creation,
guest management, and payment refund.
• Full customization and branding of Hotspot
portal pages.
Multi-Site Management
A single UniFi Controller running in the cloud
can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed
deployments and multi-tenancy for managed
service providers. Each site is logically separated
and has its own configuration, maps, statistics,
guest portal, and administrator read/write and
read-only accounts.
Statistics
UniFi organizes and visualizes network traffic in clear and
easy‑to‑read graphs.
WLAN Groups
The UniFi Controller can manage flexible
configurations of large deployments. Create
multiple WLAN groups and assign them to an
AP’s radio. Each WLAN can be VLAN tagged.
Dynamic VLAN tagging per Wi-Fi station (or
RADIUS VLAN) is also supported.

802.11ac Technology
High-Density Scenarios
Initial 802.11ac Wave 1 SU-MIMO (Single-User,
Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology allows an
earlier‑generation AP, such as the UniFi AC Pro AP, to
communicate with only one client at a time.
For high-density environments, such as a concert venue
or outdoor fair where there are numerous clients in a
relatively small space, we recommend the UniFi AC HD AP.
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.
802.11ac Wave 2 MU‑MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input,
Multiple Output) technology allows a Wave 2 AP, such as
the UniFi AC HD AP, to communicate with multiple clients
at the same time – significantly increasing multi-user
throughput and overall user experience.
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.
The following describes a 5-client scenario:
MU-MIMO Assuming the same conditions, a Wave 2 AP
provides up to 75% improvement1 overall over a Wave 1
AP. This improvement increases wireless performance
and/or serves more clients at the same performance level.
With the advantages of MU-MIMO technology and 4x4
spatial streams, the UniFi AC HD AP can support more
than triple the number of users2 than a typical Wave 1 AP.
4x4 Spatial Streams At any single time, a Wave 2 AP can
communicate with the following MU-MIMO clients:

Real-World Performance The UniFi AC HD AP is the first
UniFi 802.11ac Wave 2 AP. Combining the performance
increases from MU-MIMO technology and the use of 4x4
spatial streams, the UniFi AC HD AP delivers up to 125%
greater performance1 than a typical Wave 1 AP.
