I currently have a grandstream setup, which I wish had done some more research on\about, before purchasing. Saying that the equipment works well and is reliable.

 

I'd like to explore the replacement options of the Grandstream router and 7610 AP with a Ubiquiti solution.

 

As mentioned in the subject, this is for a home setup currently on BigPipe Gigabit service, and will move to HyperFibre when available. 

 

I have a mixture of wired and wireless devices.

 

The wired devices are majority Gigabit, with CAT6A cable throughout the house.

 

Wireless is a mixture of 2.4GHZ and 5GHZ. Range works well everywhere through the 2 level house, although I did place an AP down in the garage just for kicks and ensure a decent connection.

 

 

 

If I start from scratch, with a budget of up to $1000, what Ubiquiti equipment should I go for.

 

 

 

thanks for reading

one of the big questions is do you want 4000mbps to any of your devices or do you want 1000mbps to different devices.

You're going to have to up your budget if you want anything over Gigabit.

 

Router wise, the Ubiquiti Dream Machine Pro is what you're needing along with a 10Gbit switch and some decent access points. Ubiquiti are only testing 802.11ax now.

 

If you're happy sticking with Gigabit then the Ubiquiti Dream Machine is a great router and allows you to use other UniFi products with it also.

I'd say, 1000mbps to any device at any one time is more than ample. 

 

Anything over and I would need SFP's?????

no you can do 10GbE over the correct CAT cable. devices are not cheap though

 

if you only want GbE then most devices will support that.

 

Im in a similar boat to you with a similar budget

 

I want to upgrade to ubiquity stuff and would need a Router, 3 AP's and a 16-24 port switch.
