802.11ac Wave 2 Access Point with Dedicated Security Radio 5 Pack


Scalable Enterprise Wi-Fi Management

The UniFi® Ecosystem enables the system integrator to effectively and efficiently create wireless network designs of any size, from small to large, with the potential for unlimited scalability. The built-in, dedicated security and monitoring radios of the UniFi SHD (Secure High Density) AP provides visibility into site performance, channel planning, and local interferers, allowing the integrator to properly evaluate performance and quickly respond to changing interference and security threat landscapes. Easily accessible through any standard web browser and the UniFi app (iOS or Android™), the UniFi Controller software is a powerful software engine ideal for highdensity client deployments requiring low latency and high uptime performance.

Powerful Hardware

 The UniFi SHD AP features the latest in Wi-Fi 802.11ac Wave 2 MU‑MIMO technology combined with dedicated security and Bluetooth radios.

Intuitive UniFi Controller Software

The system integrator can leverage the controller to easily configure and administer an enterprise Wi-Fi network.


The system integrator can start with one (or upgrade to a multi‑pack) and expand to thousands while maintaining a single unified management system.

Save Money and Save Time

UniFi comes bundled with a software controller that can be deployed on an on-site PC, Mac, or Linux machine; in a private cloud; or using a public cloud service.

802.11ac Technology

Initial 802.11ac Wave 1 SU-MIMO (Single-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology allows an earlier‑generation AP, such as the UniFi AC Pro AP, to communicate with only one client at a time.

802.11ac Wave 2 MU‑MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology allows a Wave 2 AP, such as the UniFi SHD AP, to communicate with multiple clients at the same time – significantly increasing multi‑user throughput and overall user experience. The following describes a 5-client scenario:


Assuming the same conditions, a Wave 2 AP provides up to 75% improvement1 overall over a Wave 1 AP. This improvement increases wireless performance and/or serves more clients at the same performance level. 4x4 Spatial Streams At any single time, a Wave 2 AP can communicate with the following MU-MIMO clients:

  • four 1x1 clients
  • two 2x2 clients
  • one 2x2 client and two 1x1 clients
  • one 3x3 client and one 1x1 client

A 4x4 Wave 2 AP delivers up to 33% greater performance1 than a Wave 1 AP that is 3x3 in both radio bands.

Real-World Performance

The UniFi SHD AP is the first UniFi 802.11ac Wave 2 AP with a dedicated security radio. Combining the performance increases from MU‑MIMO technology and the use of 4x4 spatial streams, the UniFi SHD AP delivers up to 125% greater performance1 than a typical Wave 1 AP.

Client Compatibility

For optimal performance, use MU‑MIMO clients. SU‑MIMO clients will also benefit and gain up to 10‑20% greater performance when used with the UniFi SHD AP.
