Ubiquiti Networks offers its UniFi management suite at no additional cost with its hardware, which lets Ubiquiti campus switches and APs be managed in a unified way.

The vendor is a good fit for midsize and large enterprises looking for a low-cost option for wired and wireless LAN implementations with simple connectivity and management requirements and low support needs.
