On our site, we have already looked at the features and specifics of deploying high-density WiFi. To briefly summarize its essence, for the deployment of high-density WiFi, it is necessary that the equipment meets a number of conditions. Since the specifics of working in such networks imply the connection of hundreds, and sometimes thousands of subscribers concentrated in a small area to one access point, it is required to support such technologies as Beamforming and MU-MIMO. In addition, equipment suitable for creating a hot spot in such conditions must also have a perfect, well-calculated antenna module, and be sufficiently efficient to ensure proper performance.


Not every model from the Ubiquiti range, despite the quality of the UniFi WiFi hotspot line, will be able to cope with this task. To facilitate this task, we have selected several options for the configuration of equipment that can be used if you need a wireless network coverage of such objects as concert and conference rooms in the premises.


Option Basic.

Equipment
 
1.UniFi AP HD
27 220
2.UniFi Switch GEN 2
27 740
3.UniFi Cloud Key GEN 2
16 400
4.UniFi Security Gateway

In this basic configuration, the basis of the created WiFi network is the UniFi AP HD access points. The model has a dual-band radio module with high performance, as well as powerful hardware, which allows it to efficiently process traffic passing through it.


The model supports the 802.11 AC standards revision wave 2, thus fully meeting the requirement for high-density WiFi networks, which consists in the need to support MU-MIMO and Beamforming - both technologies are here.


The configuration of the radio module complies with the MIMO 4X4 scheme, which allows achieving throughput up to 800 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz range, and up to 1733 Mbps in the 5 GHz frequency range. The total throughput thus reaches 2.53 Gbps. Such parameters allow the model to simultaneously serve up to 500 subscribers, evenly distributing its capabilities among them.


The number of access points depends on how large the room is where you need to provide WiFi coverage. Here you should carefully consider setting up access points, place them correctly in the hall and set the required power so that each device is responsible for its own zone.


To switch traffic, in this case, you will need a UniFi Cloud Key switch, generation GEN 2. Models of this revision support the 802.3at PoE + power scheme, which is required by the UniFi AP HD. Traffic control in the network will be carried out by the branded router UniFi Security Gateway. Since high-density WiFi requires centralized management of statistics, setting up connection rules, and managing other similar functions, it is necessary to use the UniFi Controller, offline mode is unacceptable in this case. Its deployment will be optimal on UniFi Cloud Key GEN 2 portable servers.


Advanced option "Safe"

Equipment

1.UniFi AP SHD

2.UniFi Switch GEN 2
27 740
3.UniFi Cloud Key GEN 2
16 400
4.UniFi Security Gateway
10 710
This option is preferable in the case when increased security of the created wireless network is required. Similar to the previous version, the UniFi AP SHD has a radio module that provides bandwidth up to 2.53 Gbps - of which 800 are in the 2.4 GHz band, and 1733 are in the 5 GHz band.

However, the radio part of this model has a separate, dedicated radio module, which is responsible for monitoring WiFi activity. Such a configuration allows you to effectively detect and promptly respond to attempts to hack a wireless network, as well as restrict the connections of subscribers overloading the network.

As in the previous version, the UniFi Switch GEN 2 with 802.3at support is responsible for power, the controller itself is deployed on a cloud portable server with UniFi Cloud Key GEN 2 remote access control, and traffic routing is provided by the branded UniFi Security Gateway router.

Extreme Performance Option

1.UniFi AP XG

2.UniFi Switch Industrial

3.UniFi XG Server

4.UniFi Security Gateway Pro 4

If you need to ensure maximum performance, you can use the flagship model of the access point, which is the UniFi AP XG. This model is characterized by extreme performance


Its peculiarity lies in the fact that for the 5 GHz band the model received two independent MIMO 4X4 radio modules at once, supporting 802.11 ac wave 2. At the same time, the radio modules work in an intelligent hardware bundle, using non-overlapping radio channels for operation, thus minimizing the negative consequences of each other. on a friend. The bandwidth of the 5 GHz band reaches 3466 Mbps, while an additional 800 Mbps can be transmitted at 2.4 GHz. In total, UniFi AP XG provides throughput at the level of 4.26 Gbps. The model has one more. An additional radio security module, which is responsible for monitoring the state of the radio broadcast and identifying threats. To realize its potential, the access point, along with a standard gigabit Ethernet port, also received a high-speed ten-gigabit ICM Ethernet port.


In total, the UniFi AP XG is capable of serving up to 1500 connected subscribers!


These characteristics affected the power consumption of the device. The model consumes 31 watts, and uses the 802.3bt PoE standard, which not all switches of the series can provide, so in this case it is recommended to purchase a UniFi Switch Industrial, with the support of this standard and sufficient power supply. Considering the potential high network load, a high-performance UniFi XG Server should be used to ensure uninterrupted operation of the UniFi Controller. As a router, taking into account the extreme performance configuration of the solution, the best option would be to use UniFi Security Gateway Pro 4.
