to Unifi or not to Unifi, that is my question.  I have spoken to a few people and they say Unifi is a quick and cost effective way to get WiFi into schools, however i have heard that once you get too many people using the WiFi it can be a bit of a nightmare.  WIth future thoughts of BOYD is Unifi the way to go or do we invest in a more expensive, more thorough model.

 

What are your thoughts on this?

What is your WiFi access like and what do you use?

    I am also looking at systems and several Rotorua schools have taken up Unifi.  Warren Hall said to give it a close look when I was at the last regional ictpd meeting in Hamilton. and some ed tech folk I know (well) are saying that Unifi is looking to be a good cheap no ties alternative to Aerohive. I'm testing one of each right now to see how many devices we can get on.  What they offer looks pretty similar but Unifi does not go with either the annual licensing or support fees.

    Apparently, no matter which system, look at a shelf life of 4 years.

    Let me know what you load it with.  What units have you put in and how many ie per group of how many classes.
