Ubiquiti's first product line was its "Super Range" mini-PCI radio card series, which was followed by other wireless products.
The company's Xtreme Range (XR) cards operated on non-standard IEEE 802.11 bands, which reduced the impact of congestion in the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz bands. In August 2007 a group of Italian amateur radio operators set a distance world record for point-to-point links in the 5.8 GHz spectrum. Using two XR5 cards and a pair of 35 dBi dish antennas, the Italian team was able to establish a 304 km (about 188 mi) link at data rates between 4 and 5 Mbit/s.
The company (under its "Ubiquiti Labs" brand) also manufactures a home-oriented wireless mesh network router and access point combination device, as a consumer-level product called AmpliFi.
Ubiquiti product lines include UniFi, AmpliFi, EdgeMax, UISP, AirMax, AirFiber, GigaBeam, and UFiber. The most common product line is UniFi which is focused on home, prosumer, business wired and wireless networking. EdgeMax is a product line dedicated to wired networking, containing only routers and switches. UISP, announced in 2020, is a range of products for internet service providers.
AirMax is a product line dedicated to creating point-to-point (PTP) and point-to-multi-point (PtMP) links between networks. AirFiber and UFiber are used by Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISP), and Internet Service Providers (ISP) respectively.
UniFi controller is a software package that can either run on special hardware (UniFi Cloudkeys, UniFi Dream Machine) or can be installed on Linux, Mac, or Windows. The controller manages all connected devices (access points, routers, switches, cameras, locks) and provides a single point for configuration and administration.
