Product Description

The Ubiquiti UniFi UAP-AC-SHD-5 access point enables you to effectively and efficiently create wireless network designs of any size, from small to large, with the potential for unlimited scalability.

Ubiquiti UAP-AC-SHD-5 Features

  • Simultaneous Dual-Band 4×4 Multi-User MIMO
  • 500+ Client Connections
  • 2.4 GHz Radio Rate 800 Mbps
  • 5GHz Radio Rate 1733 Mbps
  • PoE Mode 802.3at PoE+
  • Dedicated Security Radio with Persistent Threat Management
  • Real-Time Spectrum and airTime Utilisation Engine

The built-in, dedicated security and monitoring dual-band radios of the UniFi AC SHD (Secure High Density) AP (5 Pack) provides visibility into site performance, channel planning, and local interferers, allowing the integrator to properly evaluate performance.

With the UAP-AC-SHD-5, the user also has the additional benefit of being capable of quickly responding to changing interference and security threat landscapes. airTime provides real time visibility into channel utilization at packet level. airView provides real-time visibility into RF environment across all available channels.

Powerful Hardware
The UniFi UAP-AC-SHD-5 features the latest in Wi-Fi 802.11ac Wave 2 4X4 MU-MIMO technology combined with dedicated security and Bluetooth radios. Frequencies: 2.4 and 5GHz

Intuitive UniFi Controller Software
The system integrator can leverage the controller to easily configure and administer an enterprise Wi-Fi network.

The system integrator can start with one (or upgrade to a multi-pack) and expand to thousands while maintaining a single unified management system.

Save Money and Save Time
UniFi comes bundled with a 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.

Easily accessible through any standard web browser and the UniFi mobile app (iOS or Android), the UniFi Controller software is a powerful software engine ideal for high-density client deployments requiring low latency and high uptime performance. The also uses the same mounting hardware as the UAP-AC-PRO, so you can easily remove the UAP-AC-PRO and replace it with the UAP-AC-SHD-5.

Extend Your Coverage
With the UniFi Controller software running in a NOC or in the cloud, system integrators can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed deployments and multi-tenancy for managed service providers. Below are some deployment examples.

Perfect for High-Density Scenarios

For high-density environments, such as a concert venue or outdoor fair where there are numerous clients in a relatively small space, we recommend the UniFi AC SHD AP. 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.

Real-World Performance

The UniFi AC SHD AP is the first UniFi 802.11ac Wave 2 AP with a dedicated security radio. Combining the performance increases from MU-MIMO technology and the use of 4×4 spatial streams, meaning that the UniFi AC SHD AP delivers up to 125% greater performance1 than a typical Wave 1 AP. For optimal performance, use MU-MIMO clients. However, SU-MIMO clients will also benefit and gain up to 10-20% greater performance when used with the UniFi AC SHD AP.

Dedicated Spectral Security Radio and Threat Management

Using a persistent spectral scan, the UniFi AC SHD AP constantly monitors the RF environment to check for both potential malicious activity and the best channel for network performance. The UniFi AC SHD AP’s also possesses dedicated security radio, providing persistent threat management to act as a Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) and Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS). This means that all available Wi-Fi channels are monitored constantly for threats.
