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 nanoHD AP, to communicate with multiple clients at the same time, significantly increasing multiuser throughput and overall user experience.
High-Density Scenarios
For high-density environments, such as a theater where there are numerous clients in a relatively small space, we recommend the UniFi nanoHD AP when a minimal footprint is also required.

Both Wave 1 and Wave 2 APs offer 28 independent (non-overlapping) channels: three for the 2.4 GHz band and twenty-five for the 5 GHz band, including DFS channels.

When you use the 2.4 GHz band in a high-density location, you encounter self-interference and channel saturation. When you use the 5 GHz band, you can deploy smaller cells (coverage areas), so you can support more clients in any cell that deploys more than one AP.

With the advantages of MU-MIMO technology and 4x4 spatial streams, the UniFi nanoHD AP can support more than triple the number of users than a typical Wave 1 AP.
Hardware Overview
Deploy the UniFi nanoHD AP in high-density environments requiring maximum wireless performance and minimal footprint. The UniFi nanoHD AP features simultaneous, dual-band, 4x4 MU-MIMO technology, and convenient 802.3af PoE compatibility.

Low-Profile Mounting
The UniFi nanoHD AP's low-profile ceiling mount (sold separately) allows you to seamlessly integrate the AP into its environment.

Compact Form Factor
The compact design delivers a cost-effective combination of value and performance.

The unique LED provisioning ring provides administrator location tracking and alerts for each device.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) Standard
The UniFi nanoHD AP can be powered by an 802.3af PoE compliant switch. Ubiquiti recommends powering your UniFi devices with a UniFi PoE Switch (sold separately). The UniFi nanoHD AP is compatible with all UniFi PoE Switches and 48V adapters.

Superior Processing Power
The UniFi nanoHD AP is capable of complex operations (guest control, filtering, and other resource-intensive tasks) that may slow down a lesser-equipped AP.
Designed for Seamless Integration
Optional skins (sold separately) allow the UniFi nanoHD AP to discreetly blend into its setting.

    Ubiquiti Networks nanoHD reviews

    UniFi nanoHD 4x4 MU-MIMO 802.11ac Wave-2 Access Point is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance and easy to manage Purchased four NanoHD APs for a two story 3800 sqft house. Based on surveying three would have sufficed but having overlap in coverage meant no downtime when upgrading and good signal everywhere indoors. The NanoHDs replace two Netgear wireless routers running in AP mode, the primary being a Netgear Nighthawk R7000. I had very good coverage with the Nighthawk, and the NanoHD certainly does not push as much signal through walls. My measurements showed about a consistent 10dBm difference in favor of the Nighthawk. In spite of this, my measured throughput with the NanoHD is consistently higher using my Samsung S7 as a client from the same locations. Given that most clients are less powerful, the extra range provided by the Nighthawk is counter-productively asymmetrical since clients hang on to an AP that they can barely respond to. Interestingly on the NanoHD's highest available power settings the 2.4GHz (at 22dBm) provides approximately the same RSSI as the 5GHz (at 25dBm) at any given location. So perhaps UBNT de-tuned the 2G radio/power levels to roughly match the 5G range capability. The single packs I ordered came with matching white wall mountable gigabit PoE injectors. I am however powering the NanoHD APs from a Unifi US-8-60W switch, which takes up less space than four PoE injectors and adds the ability to remotely power cycle if need be. I switched to Unifi to simplify my WiFi setup, though the increased throughput/performance is a nice bonus. I had four separate SSIDs that clients could choose depending on band and location. The Nighthawk did not encourage handoff and requires unique SSIDs for 2.4 and 5 Ghz bands. Walking across the house on a WiFi call was an issue. The Unifi solution solves the handoff/SSID issues and is easier to manage. The small ceiling mounted APs (which are slimmer than most smoke detectors) are a lot more visually appealing than consumer gaming routers, and provide better performance where more than a few clients access the network. The whole setup is pretty slick. Does the performance justify the cost of the NanoHD? For comparison my previous Netgear setup runs approximately $300. The minimum Unifi setup with comparable coverage would require 3 APs ($320 for AC Lites with a Cloud Key). You'll want to have wires run which could add to the cost, and you need a stand alone router. Moving up to NanoHDs adds considerable cost since these APs cost about twice as much as the AC Lites. If your home wiring supports ceiling mounted access points the Unifi setup definitely makes sense as the cost (using AC Lites) is similar but delivers better performance and easier management. However, justifying NanoHD over the AC Lite is more difficult. The cost is about double, and the NanoHD is so new you may run into some hiccups with feature enablement and firmware. At the time of this review band steering was not enabled/recommended and RF Scan was only recently enabled and unreliable. If you want the latest and greatest the NanoHD is off to a great start and provides future headroom with AC Wave 2 support. Regardless, Unifi is a great system any Unifi AP you choose will be significant upgrade over consumer wireless router combos.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok if you don't need max speed I bought two of these and the cloud key for my house. I was using an Asus AC3100 Router and a R7000 for a access point. I'm using a Luxul POE switch to power the units and have no issues using a non Ubiquiti brand switch. First thing I noticed is these aren't as powerful as my AC3100 or the R7000. All my AC devices connected at max speed 1733 and was able to get 700Mpbs+ running a speedtest on my gigabit internet. I used my Dell laptop and S8 phone for testing. When connected to the nanoHD my laptop would connect at the full 1733 but would only get 400Mpbs max on a speedtest. For some reason that is the max throughput I can get. It's even worse when using my S8 phone. Overall these devices are nice but they have room for improvement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable, secure and reliable Its a nice piece of equipment that has been rock solid since installation.   The configuration is a piece of cake, and the AP itself is easily capable of handling far more than I can throw at it.   Definitely an upgrade from the Apple Airport Express we have been using.
