Ubiquiti AFi-R AmpliFi Mesh Router System

Description

A real eye-catcher
The AmpliFi AFi-R differs from standard routers in its design. The compact white cube looks good in any home, whether presented on a coffee table or hidden in the frame. Bulky antennas are not found on the AmpliFi Router. The 1.6" touch display on the front panel shows the time or transmission speed of the network as desired. A white LED strip on the underside additionally visualizes the activities of the router.

Efficient inner workings
The AmpliFi AFi-R is in no way inferior to conventional routers when it comes to technical equipment. The compact housing houses a powerful dual-band antenna, via which transmission speeds of up to 1750 Mbps gross are possible. Four Gigabit LAN ports and a WAN interface provide wired connectivity.

mesh networking
The AmpliFi AFi-R can be used in combination with other AFi routers or AFi-P-HD MeshPoints in "Mesh Mode". Thanks to mesh technology, the WLAN signal reaches every corner even in larger apartments without large losses. You benefit from high coverage and improved redundancy. Also, reducing the distance between mesh access points increases the data rate.

Easy setup and management with the AmpliFi App
The intuitive AmpliFi app for Android and iOS smartphones allows you to easily and quickly setup all AmpliFi network devices. Create a guest network or view the status of your network in a clear report. And if you still have problems, a global 24/7 live chat support is available in the app.

Routers

A router is a device that forwards data packets between computer networks, creating an overlay internetwork. A router is connected to two or more data lines from different networks. When a data packet comes in one of the lines, the router reads the address information in the packet to determine its ultimate destination. Then, using information in its routing table or routing policy, it directs the packet to the next network on its journey. Routers perform the "traffic directing" functions on the Internet. A data packet is typically forwarded from one router to another through the networks that constitute the internetwork until it gets to its destination node.

802.11a

802.11a

IEEE 802.11a-1999 or 802.11a, is an amendment to the IEEE 802.11 specification that added a higher throughput of up to 54 Mbit/s by using the 5 GHz band.

Yes
802.11ac
i

802.11ac

IEEE 802.11ac is a wireless computer networking standard of 802.11, currently under development (Draft 4.0[1]), providing high-throughput wireless local area networks on the 5 GHz band.

802.11b

802.11b has a maximum raw data rate of 11 Mbit/s and uses the same media access method defined in the original standard. 802.11b products appeared on the market in early 2000, since 802.11b is a direct extension of the modulation technique defined in the original standard. The dramatic increase in throughput of 802.11b (compared to the original standard) along with simultaneous substantial price reductions led to the rapid acceptance of 802.11b as the definitive wireless LAN technology.

802.11g

802.11g

This works in the 2.4 GHz band (like 802.11b) but operates at a maximum raw data rate of 54 Mbit/s, or about 19 Mbit/s net throughput. 802.11g hardware is fully backwards compatible with 802.11b hardware.

802.11n

802.11n is a proposed amendment which improves upon the previous 802.11 standards by adding multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) and many other newer features. Though there are already many products on the market based on Draft 2.0 of this proposal, the TGn workgroup is not expected to finalize the amendment until November 2008.

WPA-PSK

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a certification program administered by the Wi-Fi Alliance to indicate compliance with the security protocol created by the Wi-Fi Alliance to secure wireless computer networks. This protocol was created in response to several serious weaknesses researchers had found in the previous system, Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). PSK means that it is only for Pre-Shared-Key mode

,
WPA2-PSK
i

WPA2-PSK

The advanced protocol, certified through Wi-Fi Alliance's WPA2 program, implements the mandatory elements of 802.11i. In particular, it introduces a new AES-based algorithm, CCMP, that is considered fully secure. From March 13, 2006, WPA2 certification is mandatory for all new devices wishing to be certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance as "Wi-Fi CERTIFIED." PSK means that it is only for Pre-Shared-Key mode.

WEP

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security algorithm for IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. Introduced as part of the original 802.11 standard ratified in September 1999, its intention was to provide data confidentiality comparable to that of a traditional wired network.

WPA-EAP

WPA enthält die Architektur von WEP, bringt jedoch zusätzlichen Schutz durch dynamische Schlüssel, die auf dem Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) basieren, und bietet zur Authentifizierung von Teilnehmern Pre-shared key (PSK) oder Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) über IEEE 802.1X an.
EAP – Extensible Authentication Protocol RFC 3748 (Request for Comments) ist ein von der Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) entwickeltes, allgemeines Authentifizierungs-Protokoll, das unterschiedliche Authentisierungsverfahren (wie z. B. Username/Password (RADIUS), elektronische Zertifizierung, SIM (Subscriber Identity Module), etc.) unterstützt. EAP wird oft für die Zugriffskontrolle bei WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network)-Netzwerken genutzt.

Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) ist die Implementierung eines Sicherheitsstandards für Funknetzwerke nach den WLAN-Standards IEEE 802.11a, b, g und n und basiert auf dem Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Er stellt den Nachfolger von WPA dar, das wiederum auf dem mittlerweile als unsicher geltenden Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) basiert. WPA2 implementiert die grundlegenden Funktionen des neuen Sicherheitsstandards IEEE 802.11i.

AFi-R AmpliFi Mesh Router System

Einfach zu bedienen, attraktives Design. Bei Stahlbeton aber Fehlanzeige.

Ich suche seit längerem nach einer Lösung, um unser EFH vernünftig mit WLAN abdecken zu können. Wir haben in jedem Raum Ethernet Dosen, sodass die logischte Lösung zunächst die AC-Pro APs von Unifi waren. Leider bieten die kein echtes Roaming und die Geräte verbleiben häufiger trotz absolut schlechtestem Signal an einem AP im Erdgeschoss hängen, auch wenn in 2m Entfernung ein anderer steht. Ich wollte daher eine Mesh-Lösung mit automatischer Verteilung der Geräte auf die APs haben. Nach einiger Recherche bin ich bei Amplifi von Unifi gelandet. Dies primär deswegen, weil es andere Geräte (z.B. die von Eero) in Europa nicht gibt.

Mein Fazit nach einigen Stunden Gebastelt: total fail. Wie in fast allen EFHs in der Schweiz sind die einzelnen Geschossflächen relativ klein, dafür gibt's mehrere Geschosse. Diese sind in der Regel (seit mindestens 40 Jahren) mit Stahlbetondecken versehen, zudem haben die meisten neueren Gebäude Bodenheizung.

Schnell musste ich feststellen, dass Amplifi das signal nicht sauber durch die Decken kriegt - die Mesh Points haben nirgends mehr als 20% Signal gehabt und der Durchsatz war unterirdisch. Dafür funken die Dinger mit voller Sendeleistung, was wiederum für ein Durchschnittsgeschoss viel zu viel ist. Für mich ist die Lösung leider unbrauchbar, d.h. ich gehe zurück zu den AC-Pros, auch wenn diese (andere) massive Nachteile haben.

Zwei Dinge müssten besser werden, damit Amplifi auch in Europa brauchbar wird:

1. Es müssten mehrere Router möglich sein, die sich untereinander via Ethernet Backhaul verbinden liessen. Damit lässt sich das Problem Stahlbetondecke lösen. Dies wurde von Unifi bereits in Aussicht gestellt.

2. Sollte die Sendeleistung der einzelnen Router + Mesh Points anpassbar sein, damit man nicht unnötig verstrahlt wird. Das ist offenbar nicht geplant.

Abgesehen von den Abdeckungsproblemen sind die Dinger super - sehr einfach zu bedienen!

AFi-R AmpliFi Mesh Router System

Für den Normalgebrauch Ok.

Wurde mit DE Steckern ausgeliefert. Die Adapter "Max Hauri Fixadapter (3-Pol. Typ J, CH, Schuko)" sind dafür ungeeignet, da sie entgegen der CH-Norm verkehrt gebaut sind. dh, die Antennen müssen mit diesen Adaptern Vertikal nach unten eingesteckt werden. Funktioniert bei Bodennahen Steckdosen nur bedingt. Enttäuschend das kein Hinweis auf DE Stecker angebracht ist und man sich selbst darum kümmern muss, und die empfohlenen Adapter zum einmalgebrauch noch verkehrt herum gebaut sind.Das Produkt selbst ist robust, bietet jedoch wenig konfigurationsmöglichkeit. Gut für den normalen gebrauch, einstecken - läuft. easy und einfach. Eher weniger für detailverliebte Techies geeignet.more

great product

it was easy to set and in our three storey concrete walled house we now have a signal even in the cellar. (base station is at the top of the house)
