The first delivery of the smallest access point from the UniFi AC series has arrived – the UAP-AC-IW .

It is comparable to the UAP-AC-LITE, although with a smaller reception range, but still with full functionality and 802.3af / at support.
Both the integration into the UniFi Network Application and the installation can be done via the UniFi app.

Of the UAP-AC-IW has a PoE output and a second LAN port. In contrast to the UAP-IW, it can be mounted with standard sockets as surface or flush-mounted installation.

In contrast to the AC Pro, it also has an additional PoE port on the bottom. This can be used to connect another access point or a VoIP telephone, for example.

The device is already set to DHCP in the delivery state and will work in the UniFi Network Application recognized and registered.

In the test we had a net data rate of ~ 120 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz and ~ 300 Mbps AC in the 5 GHz range in the immediate vicinity.

As stated by the manufacturer, the installation / assembly of the device can actually be done relatively easily if there is already an RJ45 connection in the flush-mounted socket.
Note: We recommend using a CAT. 5e cable or higher.

If an EdgeSwitch or UniFiSwitch from Ubiquiti is used in the network, its PoE functionality can be used for power supply and a PoE injector can be dispensed with.

Of course he can UAP-AC-IW can also be operated as a “single access point” in stand-alone mode. This requires configuration using the manufacturer’s app.
