One of the major disadvantages of moving from UniFI UAP-AC-PRO to AP ONE ENT is the lack of the AP ONE ENT to operate in repeater mode as UniFi allows. This is useful in scenarios where no hard wiring is available and you need to extend WiFi coverage.
Also while we have found the MESH (Transitioning client through multiple AP with shared SSID) to be superior in AP ONE ENT, they lack the same overall coverage footprint performance that UniFi provides in relative client distance to AP. We have tried to use the “Boost On” feature in the AP ONE ENT configuration page but it does not improve the coverage distance. I haven’t compared the power output specs nor do I understand engineering antenna designs but something UniFI does gives them the edge. Hoping your engineers can figure why this is.
The AP ONE ENT retails $100 more than the UAP-AC-PRO. I would hope for the cost we were buying a superior product.
My 2 Cents.
