Ubiquiti launches the U7 Pro, the first 802.11be UniFi AP

Ubiquiti has recently launched the all new U7 Pro, the first 802.11be AP from the company. The new AP shares the same physical footprint as the U6 Pro and other APs and supports six spatial streams, 6GHz and has a 2.5GbE PoE uplink port. The new U7 Pro is available on the official Ubiquiti store for $189 US or £171.60 in the UK.

In the release post for the new U7 Pro, Ubiquiti said:

After years of development, we are proud to introduce UniFi 7 — a massively scalable WiFi 7 platform capable of delivering wired-like user experiences. For the first time in history, exceptional WiFi speeds and predictability can be achieved simultaneously thanks to UniFi 7’s interference-resilient radio technologies combined with an ocean of newly supported 6 GHz spectrum.

Designed specifically for professional and enterprise deployments, the U7 Pro is ideal for applications requiring flawless WiFi service within demanding large-scale environments.

The new AP has a ton of new features, including 6GHz support, 802.11be (WiFi 7) and Multi-Link Operation (MLO) capability, but this will come in February 2024 via an upcoming software update. WiFi 7 also brings 320MHz channel widths, modulation increased to 4096-QAM and much more.

Ubiquiti has also said that a customisable cover for the AP will come in Q2 2024. The U7 Pro is on sale now.
