It can be deployed in two configurations –

Standalone

In stand-alone mode, UniBox will function as an integrated platform which combines all the functions needed for managing public networks like WiFi hotspots. The operators don’t need any other services to run their networks. UniBox comes with built-in AAA server, captive portal system, web server, DHCP service, local database and on-board storage. This operating mode is ideal for single venue hotspots where central management is not desirable.

Cloud-Managed

In this mode, UniBox functions as an intelligent controller while utilizing the AAA, captive portal and other services from the central server or cloud. This operating mode is ideal for managing multiple, remote networks centrally and having a single console to monitor all the network activity.

Excellent Up-time & No Failures

Unibox is an excellent product that has solved some serious issues for my customers, by managing and policing the large internet bandwidth in some extreme use higher education/colleges and universities student residence environments. We have some large and mid-size UniBox in operation bringing order to the chaos of misuse of bandwidth by few and thus making overall performance very acceptable for everyone.
The team at Unibox has provided us great and very responsive service and support in understanding our requirements and then making appropriate changes to the product and helping meet some unexpected requirements.
The product has shown excellent performance and uptime and for 9 months into operation, we have not seen any failure. I strongly recommend Unibox and other related products to anyone in higher education and hospitality environments.
