About this deal

Ubiquiti makes great access points with their Unifi line. They have the best value for money in my opinion, so I was really waiting for their new WiFi 6 Access Points. With the Unifi 6 Lite and the Unifi 6 LR now generally available, is it a good time to take a closer look. Unifi 6 Lite (left) and Unifi 6 Long Range (right)

Overall, Wi-Fi 6 will help the battery life of your devices, help deal with Wi-Fi congestion, and improve real-world performance. Unfortunately you need most of the devices in the range of your network to also support Wi-Fi 6 before you see all the improvements. Wi-Fi 6 Speed Improvements

This item comes without PoE injectors and must be bought seperately if you are not using them with a PoE Switch.

To test the performance of each access point I created a separate wireless network and access point group. This allowed me to connect only to one device and made sure that the access point wasn’t connecting to anything else. Unifi 6 – 2.4 GHz performance You can install them on walls, but then they won’t have the same coverage. The signal goes mostly sideways in a donut shape. Further away, the lower transmit power limits the U6-Lite. The U6-LR offers more performance and range for roughly double the price.

With its Wi-Fi 6 capability, the U6-LR will strengthen your enterprise environment with the widest, most reliable coverage yet. For the switch, you could go for the USW-Lite-8-PoE and the EdgeRouter should be a good option. If you have the space and budget, then the Dream Machine Pro SE is the best option (replaces your router and switch)
