Ubiquiti UniFi 6 In-wall access point (U6-IW)
Ubiquiti UniFi 6 In-wall access point (U6-IW) is a wireless access point designed for deployment in-wall, providing Wi-Fi connectivity in a compact and discreet form factor. It is part of Ubiquiti’s UniFi 6 series, which supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard.
Key features and specifications of the U6-IW include:
- Wi-Fi 6: The U6-IW supports the Wi-Fi 6 standard, which offers improved performance, higher throughput, and increased capacity compared to previous Wi-Fi standards. It is backward compatible with older Wi-Fi devices.
- In-wall design: The U6-IW is specifically designed to be installed within a standard electrical wall outlet or a network junction box, providing a seamless integration into your home or office environment.
- Dual-band operation: It operates on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, allowing for simultaneous dual-band connections and optimal performance for a wide range of devices.
- Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology: The U6-IW utilizes MIMO technology, including MU-MIMO (Multi-User MIMO) and OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access), to efficiently handle multiple devices and increase overall network capacity.
- Power over Ethernet (PoE): The U6-IW can be powered via PoE, allowing for easy installation and flexible placement without the need for a separate power outlet.
- Gigabit Ethernet ports: It features two Gigabit Ethernet ports that can be used for wired connections, such as connecting devices like computers, printers, or IP phones.
- UniFi Controller software: The U6-IW is managed using Ubiquiti’s UniFi Controller software, which provides a centralized management interface for configuring and monitoring multiple UniFi devices across your network.
- Seamless roaming: With UniFi’s seamless roaming technology, devices can transition between UniFi access points without experiencing interruption or degradation in the network connection.
- Advanced features: The U6-IW supports various advanced features, including VLAN (Virtual LAN) support, guest portal/hotspot functionality, QoS (Quality of Service), and advanced security features.
