UAP-AC-PRO is a more-advanced UniFi Dual-Radio Access Point. UAP-AC-PRO supports a UniFi Software Controller which pictorially depicts network usage, status, network traffic statistics. It also gives the administrator the ability to run the UniFi Controller Software on a cloud. This makes it easier to manage multiple deployments and several other clustered networks.
The Radio Frequency map provided by the software controller of UAP-AC-PRO helps the user study the broadband pattern in the area. This lets the admin adjust the position of the AP. The results and patterns can assist in spotting errors and troubleshooting them.
The advanced RF features include spectral analysis. This plots a graph based on the frequency variations. The UAP-AC-PRO supports speeds of over 1300 Mbps and a 3-by-3 Multiple Input,Multiple Output (MIMO) configuration at 5 GHz Radio Rate and 450 Mbps with 3-by-3 MIMO at 2.4 GHz Radio Rate.
The speciality of the UAP-AC-PRO is that it can be used indoors as well as outdoors. It has two Gigabit Ethernet ports and one of them has been dedicated to deliver PoE to power. The UAP-AC-PRO converts an Ethernet wall connection into a dual-band Access Point.
The UniFi API provides an interactive environment to manage the network resources. The API includes authentication and Hotspot setup which makes accessing a guest portal more secure and less vulnerable to hacking. The API also allows a server’s admin to manage a voucher based authentication. This is a technology which gives internet or network access to a user based on a time limit or usage limit. The admin of the server can monitor the users of such a network in order to study the usage trends in a particular area.
Dual band support present in UAP-AC-PRO is provided by a single antenna. This Antenna delivers the same gain for both the frequencies. The device also holds supports for a UniFi PoE switch making the UAP-AC-PRO more versatile and flexible.
