I have just had extension work done on my house. In the process I have had the house wired with cat6 which all terminates in a room in the attic. I intend to house all my network equipment up there.
I currently have an Asus AC68u and a by FTTP 300mb internet connection.
I want good WiFi all over the house so I suspect a single router in the attic will struggle to provide a good connection to the downstairs areas. I am therefore planning in having an AP on each floor and have ran cat6 to the ceiling of each hallway for this purpose (would need to be poe ap).
I have been looking at the equipment I should buy to best achieve my aims. I really like the look of the ubiquity unify stuff. However, their switches are considerably more expensive than comparable models from Linksys/tp-link/Netgear/d-link. I also think to get the value from ubiquity I would be best buying every step from them.
The full ubiquity set up would include:
24port Poe switch,
2 Poe access points,
Cloud key controller,
All in all around £700
The other option of a different 24 port Poe switch and a couple of tp-link APs would be more in the region of £350.
Does anyone have experience with this kind of set up? Is Ubiquity worth the extra outlay?
