In its "Market Share: Enterprise WLAN Equipment, Worldwide, 4Q12 and 2012" report published last week,
"Wireless networking is at an inflection point where it can completely replace wired networking everywhere but the data center," said
802.11ac or Gigabit Wi-Fi is the newest Wi-Fi protocol for the 802.11 wireless networking standard. It can deliver more than three times the data transfer speeds of the current 802.11n protocol in addition to improved network robustness, reliability and RF bandwidth utilization efficiency for demanding applications such as HD video, video conferencing, streaming media, VOIP and more.
Ubiquiti's new UniFi 3.0 software offers unique and innovative "Zero Hand-Off Roaming" technology that enables mobile users to roam anywhere and seamlessly maintain their connection as they switch to the nearest AP. Whereas existing roaming solutions require negotiation with the client device and may cause latency and/or interoperability problems, Ubiquiti's Zero Hand-Off Roaming makes multiple APs appear as a single AP, so it can work with any client and require no interaction from the client device.
"Ubiquiti's Zero Hand-Off Roaming technology is just another example of how we're delivering unique innovations to solve the most important needs of highly mobile wireless users," added Pera. "It's a great example of Ubiquiti's unique combination of technological leadership and price disruption."
UniFi 3.0 builds on previous UniFi releases, which offer comprehensive hotspot management and a flexibly deployed software controller. The controller can run on-premises, in a private cloud or public cloud. New features of the UniFi 3.0 software include:
