Ubiquiti Networks launches Ubiquiti Labs Consumer R&D Division with introduction of AmpliFi
Ubiquiti Networks has announced the unveiling of Ubiquiti Labs, a consumer electronics innovation laboratory based in Riga, Latvia. Leveraging Ubiquiti’s advanced technology powering over 38 million Wi-Fi radios for enterprise and service provider networks around the globe, the first mission of Ubiquiti Labs is solving chronic Wi-Fi challenges now facing the modern connected home. The solution is a breakthrough technology called AmpliFi, also available as AmpliFi-LR and Amplifi-HD.
AmpliFi is the world’s first cost-effective Wi-Fi system solution designed to eliminate general shortcomings of today’s Wi-Fi routers in serving the demands of the modern connected home. It was specifically designed to excel in demanding homes serving multiple connected devices, high-quality video streaming, and distributing fast Internet bandwidth ubiquitously while eliminating dead zones.
The AmpliFi platform is able to do this by utilizing the latest in 802.11AC Wi-Fi technology combined with a simple and powerful, plug-and-play, multi-radio system. “We have essentially taken Ubiquiti’s industry-leading UniFi Wi-Fi platform and transformed it into what I believe will be seen as the most impressive Wi-Fi technology ever introduced to the consumer market. Every detail of the system from the industrial design and advanced antenna technology to the plug-and-play installation was meticulously designed for the home,” said Robert J. Pera, Ubiquiti’s Founder and CEO.
