Ubiquiti UniFi AC Access Points UAP-AC-LITE, UAP-AC-LR, UAP-AC-PRO

Looking into the newest ac technology and enterprise products? Ubiquiti Networks has just introduced three new access points to their UniFi line: AC Lite, AC Long Range and AC Pro. The Ubiquiti UniFi AC Lite features 802.11ac technology in a sleek compact design, making it ideal for cost effective high performance wireless networks. With dual radio performance, the Unifi AC Lite delivers Gigabit speeds in a refined industrial design, half the size of previous access points.

Ubiquiti UniFi AC Access Points are popular wireless access points known for their reliable performance and scalability. Let’s explore the key features and differences between three notable models: UAP-AC-LITE, UAP-AC-LR, and UAP-AC-PRO.

    • The UAP-AC-LITE is a compact and cost-effective access point suitable for small to medium-sized deployments.
    • It supports the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard, offering simultaneous dual-band operation (2.4GHz and 5GHz) with speeds up to 867 Mbps.
    • With its compact design and integrated omni-directional antennas, it provides reliable coverage over a smaller area.
    • The UAP-AC-LITE is an excellent choice for home offices, small businesses, or locations with moderate wireless demands.
  2. UAP-AC-LR:
    • The UAP-AC-LR (Long Range) is designed to provide extended range coverage compared to the UAP-AC-LITE.
    • It features a longer-range reach, making it suitable for environments that require coverage over a larger area.
    • The UAP-AC-LR supports the same 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard and offers simultaneous dual-band operation with speeds up to 867 Mbps.
    • With its longer-range capabilities, it is ideal for locations with open floor plans, warehouses, or outdoor areas where coverage distance is crucial.
  3. UAP-AC-PRO:
    • The UAP-AC-PRO is a high-performance access point designed for demanding network environments.
    • It supports the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard with simultaneous dual-band operation and speeds up to 1,300 Mbps.
    • With its professional-grade design and advanced features, it offers increased throughput and capacity for high-density deployments.
    • The UAP-AC-PRO features three dual-band antennas, allowing for better coverage and improved signal strength.
    • It is suitable for larger businesses, educational institutions, or locations with high user density and demanding wireless requirements.

Also delivering Gigabit speeds, the Ubiquiti UniFi AC Long Range features an innovative antenna design that provides a far reaching symmetrical link coverage area for better performance with distant clients. The Ubiquiti UniFi AC Pro provides maximum performance with 3×3 MiMO technology on both 5 and 2.4 GHz radio bands and a versatile indoor/outdoor design. With support for 802.3af and existing mounting kits, the UAP-AC-PRO is designed to quickly upgrade your existing UAP deployments. All three of the Ubiquiti UniFi AC Access Points come with the newly redesigned UniFi Controller software. The controller was improved in order to optimize RF performance. Making it ideal for high density client deployments, requiring low latency and high uptime performance. It comes with features such as spectral analysis, band steering and airtime fairness, this software allows for unlimited scalability under one centralized controller and remote access to upgrade deployed UniFi APs from anywhere. Baltic Networks is an authorized distributor of Ubiquiti UniFi AC Access Points.

All three UniFi AC access points mentioned above are part of the UniFi ecosystem, enabling easy integration with the UniFi Controller software. The UniFi Controller provides centralized management, allowing administrators to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot access points and other UniFi devices from a single interface.

When choosing between these models, consider factors such as the coverage area, number of users, desired range, and budget. The UAP-AC-LITE offers a cost-effective solution for smaller deployments, the UAP-AC-LR extends coverage range, while the UAP-AC-PRO delivers high-performance capabilities for demanding environments. Select the access point that best fits your specific requirements and network needs.
