Et voici venir une nouvelle évolution des bornes Unifi, avec le contrôleur logiciel version 2.10. Les nouveautés ne manquent pas, mais je retiendrai les « uplink » sans fil, destinés à relier jusqu’à 4 bornes à un même AP, ainsi que la fonctionnalité hotspot qui s’améliore de jour en jour, sans toutefois offrir une possibilité d’enregistrement syslog pour le moment.

En anglais dans le texte :

Other Enhancements/Bug fixes

  • Proper TX Power control allowing customized TX-power setting. We’ll always show EIRP (mouseover to see how it’s calculated if external antenna is used)

  • Google Map integration (you can use Google Map in the Map view)
  • Email notification for alerts

  • Controller will check for port availability and display error messages during start up
