Unifi Dream Wall

While I’m not the biggest Ubiquity fan around I do admire the company’s willingness to try new form factors and verticals.

With the Unifi Dream Wall they’ve essentially crammed devices normally occupying rack space (inefficiently I might add) and condensed them into a wall mounted “pizza box” form factor.

With companies relying on cloud infrastructure the need for many platters of spinning rust are shrinking along with the rise of nand storage the need for modern more efficient form factor is clear.

What is it? (20 chars)

Looks like a UniFi Dream Machine but in a wall mounted instead of rack mounted form factor.

Wonder what kind of cpu would power that……

That seems to be pretty expensive, compared with other router (and that seems to be mainly it).

With that’s in the box, $800 is nothing nor is $1200, especially not for a smaller business. The rack alone could cost hundreds.

My 15U rack was $499 and I’m struggling with “where am I going to put this thing?”

Agree with Robert in that I think it’s a strong offering for branch and SMB markets in addition to SOHO.

This might be strong for new home builders who can essentially bolt in a network appliance that scales with client needs.

All this for less than what Linksys and Netgear are charging for 3pk 6e Mesh nodes.

I wouldn’t be surprised if next year ubiquity reaches out to homebuilders with a specific program

OK, that seems to depend on, where you live.
A FRITZ!Box 7590 AX costs around 250€, a 15U Rack is available from around 100€, an 16 Port Gigabit-PoE-Switch will be around 175€, and a small (APC) UPS starts around 50€.
So I will get the same for around 575€ here in Germany.
Of course, not in a nice white hull, but with components I can change separately, if they fail, or I want to made an upgrade.
And (maybe beside the small UPS) could all be installed hanging on a wall, or in a cabinet. In that case you even don’t need the Rack.

This looks nice and probably performs well, but the problem with all in one installations is repair and/or upgrades. What do you do when a component fails?

I assembled a network for a rented location by mounting a 24 port POE switch, UPS, WiFI router, and phone and Ethernet patch panels, etc on a 4’x4’ sheet of plywood. When mounted the UPS was only 5.5 inches out from the wall. The advantage of individual components is the ability to get everyone back to work with a quick trip to BestBuy or HomeDepot if you don’t have spares on hand.
