1. They have a long, proud history
Ubiquiti Networks was founded in 2005 and since then they have dominated the market with their experience and their fantastic products. And they are just as well known for giving out superb advice.
2. Leaders in Wireless
As wireless internet accessibility becomes cheaper and more popular, Ubiquiti has become an industry leader in this particular sector of the market. Their Wi-Fi products are incredibly affordable and long lasting, ideal for both businesses and homes.
3. Specialised Employee Base
Unlike many other global brands, which are well-known for their large and varied workforce, Ubiquiti has a relatively small team of just over 800 people (as of 2018). Each of the employees have specialised skills which enables them to not only produce their product range but to also be continuously innovative in their approach.
4. Social Media Presence
A character trait that is quite unlike that of other hardware companies, Ubiquiti has focused on creating a strong social media presence to engage with clients and directly respond to feedback. Overall, this helps to improve on the work they are doing while giving them the information they require when innovating.
5. Global Reach
Making more than 1 billion USD in revenue in 2018, the company’s impressive global reach and support from the global community is a testament to the quality of their products and the value of their service.
6. A friend to emerging markets
Ubiquiti is no stranger to small companies and emerging markets. In fact, one of their primary business goals is aimed at serving those who are mostly overlooked by bigger conglomerates.
7. Beyond the Basics
To ensure that businesses have everything they could possibly need in order to get set up, Ubiquiti manufacturers a wide variety of networking accessories that go well-beyond the basics.
8. Consistent Leadership
The company is considered to be one of the more stable hardware firms out there, something which is preferred by those who intend to use Ubiquiti as a main networking provider. One testament to their solidity is the fact that the founder of the company remains at the helm as CEO to this day.
9. They have had their share of ups and downs
Like any growing company, Ubiquiti has had its good and its bad years. Every company has its ups and downs, but this is good to take note off, since it is something that tends to come up when researching them and it shouldn’t be seen in a negative light.
10. Flexible Products
One of the most outstanding features of Ubiquiti is that their products are suitable for both home use as well as businesses. This kind of flexibility is much sought after by networking firms, especially the kind looking to expand their client base.
