The Ubiquiti Unifi WiFi line of products have been around for years. They are for the most part appear the same way but each model differs in Wi-Fi coverage, price, and generation of the product. Check out our new Ubiquiti post if you need a refresher course in why we choose certain routers and switches.
Ubiquiti Unify Wave 1.
For basic coverage the wave 1 APs are fine but they are getting old. I’d consider something newer. I’d rather have a U6-lite than an AC-Lite for $99, but it all depends on what’s in stock and what price it is these days.
Ubiquiti Unify Wave 2
This is higher density and higher spatial streams on wave 2 would shine if you’re expecting a lot of users in an area like a conference room or a lobby.
Ubiquiti Unify U6 – Latest and Greatest
Keep an eye out for the U6 line of Unifi WIFI 6 products. This is the latest release of Ubiquiti WiFi Access Points.

Ubiquiti WiFi Support Summary
Business decision makers should have a better idea of what Ubiquiti WiFi Access Point hardware to proceed with but should also understand not all access points are in stock or are within their budget. Ubiquiti WiFi Support is generally needed for deployment but having the hardware already onsite will make the installation and configuration go a heck of a lot more smoothly,
