Ubiquiti UniFi 802.11AC In-Wall Wave 2 WiFi Access Point - UAP-IW-HD
The sleek and elegantÂ UniFiÂ®Â In-Wall HD Ideal for new and retrofit installations. Convert an Ethernet wall jack into aÂ simultaneous, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi Access Point with 4x4 MIMO technology and it also includes one in and four out Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Scalable Enterprise Wi-Fi Management UniFiÂ® is the revolutionary Wi-Fi system that combines enterprise performance, unlimited scalability, and a central management controller. The UniFi IW HD AP has a refined industrial design and can be easily installed using the included mounting hardware. Easily accessible through any standard web browser and the UniFi app (iOS or Androidâ„¢), the UniFi Controller software is a powerful software engine ideal for high-density client deployments requiring low latency and high uptime performance. Use the UniFi Controller software to quickly configure and administer an enterprise Wi-Fi network â€“ no special training required. RF map and performance features, real-time status, automatic UAP device detection, and advanced security options are all seamlessly integrated.
Save Money and Save Time UniFi comes bundled with a non-dedicated software controller that can be deployed on an on-site PC, Mac, or Linux machine; in a private cloud; or using a public cloud service. You also have the option of deploying the compact UniFi Cloud Key with built-in software.
Powerful Hardware The UniFi IW HD AP features the latest in Wi-Fi 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO technology.
Intuitive UniFi Controller Software Configure and manage your APs with the easy-to-learn user interface.
Expandable Unlimited scalability: build wireless networks as big or small as needed. Start with one (or upgrade to a multi-pack) and expand to thousands while maintaining a single unified management system.
Extend Your Coverage With the UniFi Controller software running in a NOC or in the cloud, administrators can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed deployments and multi-tenancy for managed service providers. Below are some deployment examples.
For high-density environments, such as hotel suites and meeting rooms where there are numerous clients in a relatively small space, we recommend the UniFi IW HD AP. Both Wave 1 and Wave 2 APs offer 28 independent (non-overlapping) channels: three for the 2.4 GHz band and twenty-five for the 5 GHz band, including DFS channels. When you use the 2.4 GHz band in a high-density location, you encounter self-interference and channel saturation. When you use the 5 GHz band, you can deploy smaller cells (coverage areas), so you can support more clients in any cell that deploys more than one AP. With the advantages of MU-MIMO technology and 4x4 spatial streams, the UniFi IW HD AP can support more than triple the number of users2 than a typical Wave 1 AP.
- Recommended Maximum Number of Users*:
*Actual numbers may vary depending on environmental and installation conditions.
Easy Mounting The backplate offers multiple mounting holes for use with a variety of 1-gang electrical wall boxes.
LED The unique provisioning LED provides administrator location tracking and alerts for each device.
Secondary Gigabit Ethernet Four ports are available for bridging â€“ one of which offers PoE passthrough when the AP is powered by an 802.3at PoE+ switch
Superior Processing Power The UniFi IW HD AP is capable of complex operations (guest control, filtering, and other resource-intensive tasks) that may slow down a lesser-equipped AP
Power over Ethernet (PoE) Standard The UniFi IW HD AP can be conveniently powered by an 802.3af or 802.at compliant switch. We recommend powering your UniFi devices with a UniFi PoE Switch (sold separately).
UniFi PoE Switch Available in 8*, 16, 24, and 48-port versions with multiple power output options, the UniFi PoE Switch conveniently offers auto-sensing IEEE 802.3af PoE/802.3at PoE+.
* The US-8 and US-8-60W do not support 802.3at PoE+.
802.11ac Wave 1 Versus Wave 2 Technology
Initial 802.11ac Wave 1 SU-MIMO (Single-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology allows an earlier-generation AP, such as the UniFi AC Pro AP, to communicate with only one client at a time. 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology allows a Wave 2 AP, such as the UniFi IW HD AP, to communicate with multiple clients at the same time â€“ significantly increasing multi-user throughput and overall user experience. The following describes a 5-client scenario:
MU-MIMO Assuming the same conditions, a Wave 2 AP provides up to 75% improvement1 overall over a Wave 1 AP. This improvement increases wireless performance and/or serves more clients at the same performance level.
4x4 Spatial Streams At any single time, a Wave 2 AP can communicate with the following MU-MIMO clients:Â
- Four 1x1 clientsÂ
- Two 2x2 clientsÂ
- One 2x2 client and two 1x1 clientsÂ
- One 3x3 client and one 1x1 client A 4x4 Wave 2 AP delivers up to 33% greater performance1 than a Wave 1 AP that is 3x3 in both radio bands
A 4x4 Wave 2 AP delivers up to 33% greater performance1 than a Wave 1 AP that is 3x3 in both radio bands.
Real-World Performance The UniFi IW HD AP is the first UniFi 802.11ac Wave 2 AP using the in-wall design. Combining the performance increases from MU-MIMO technology and the use of 4x4 spatial streams, the UniFi IW HD AP delivers up to 125% greater performance1 than a typical Wave 1 AP.
Client Compatibility For optimal performance, use MUâ€‘MIMO clients. SUâ€‘MIMO clients will also benefit and gain up to 10-20% greater performance when used with the UniFi IW HD AP
