    Just taken over support in new school and never come across Unifi as previously use Ruckus. Currently only have about 7 users on wifi but am implementing a wireless network with 50 laptops etc and wanted to know if you have any problems with say 32 laptops hitting 1 AP for authentiaction etc...

    Will this be up to the job, have approx 11 dotted around the building.

    14 Unifi APs here averaging 120+ clients per day and 20-30 Gig of traffic. Think I've had to reboot 2 of them since June...

    We are currently looking into site wide wireless coverage. We've looked at Aruba, Ruckus and Aerohive. Although the Aerohive solution looked attractive in the first instance, we didn't like the licencing model they use. We are now down to Aruba and Ruckus, we like the Ruckus solution and the few extras like Beam Forming sound good. We are due to have some Aruba access points in for trial later this week and will see how they cope with 30+ Google Nexus tablets attached.

    You can have a virtual machine on site to "manage" the wireless aps which is a one off fee plus annual support etc or you have to pay for a 1, 3 or 5 year licence for a hosted (HMOL) service. The price is quite high if you compare it to other solutions.

    That sounds Similar to the Meraki System then - Meraki you pay for the units and then pay for a yearly license per ap (which is similar to the cost of support) for all the updates and the cloud controller.
