Hey all. I'm looking to deploy about 12 Ubiquiti unifi switches in a building that's currently under construction. We've traditionally used HP or Dell switches but the price of those brands is significantly higher making the Ubiquiti gear very attractive.
The downside I see for Ubiquiti is around the support side of things which looks minimal especially here in Australia. This is mitigated by the fact I can afford to buy spare switches and put them on the shelf.
I'd like to hear from anyone who has an existing deployment and is willing to share their experience with these switches, good, bad, fugly I'd like to hear.

Btw this is being deployed in a school and of I can get it right will probably work through our current network and replace the rest of the switches we currently have as a 10Gb backbone upgrade.

Had a go at installing Foswiki today. Looks like a worthy successor to our old Twiki install.

+Paul Swanson​ new toy to play with and I have to say the capabilities are jolly amazing.
Cost is comparable to the Xirrus stuff and you get a whole tonne of analytics of the back of them.
As our use has changed from covering large areas with big arrays to one array/ap per classroom Xirrus starts to lose its edge and other vendors start to become much more interesting.

Gotta love a good bit of extortion. These guys want $108US to remove you from their blocklist.

Going to have to leave the community if the spam keeps up.
Problem I'm seeing is that reporting a post in the g+ app doesn't make it disappear. If you refresh the feed the post comes back.
Going to try muting next.

+Fortinet How to change inspection mode when you have VDOMs enabled isn't exactly clear in the available documentation. Thought this might help clear it up for those that need to know.
