Timber and Bloom will execute on planning, creating, and implementing a computer network infrastructure for an organization or business. It involves designing a network that meets the specific requirements and objectives of the organization while ensuring optimal performance, security, and scalability.
One of the primary advantages of our solutions over others is cost-effectiveness. Ubiquiti's product range is known for providing high-quality equipment at affordable prices. This makes it an ideal choice for small to medium-sized businesses or organizations with budget constraints. On the other hand, Cisco Meraki tends to have a higher price point due to its advanced features and comprehensive management platform.
Ubiquiti offers a wide range of networking products that provide flexibility and scalability options for network design. Their product portfolio includes access points, switches, routers, and security gateways, allowing network administrators to customize and scale their infrastructure as per their specific requirements. Cisco Meraki, while also offering a variety of products, may have some limitations in terms of customization and scalability, especially in complex network environments.
Ubiquiti's management interface, known as the UniFi Controller, provides a user-friendly and intuitive way to manage network devices. It offers centralized management, making configuring and monitoring the entire network from a single interface easy. The UniFi Controller also allows for granular control over individual devices and provides advanced features like guest access, VLAN configuration, and traffic shaping. While Cisco Meraki offers a comprehensive cloud-based management platform, some users find the UniFi Controller's simplicity and ease of use more appealing.
Ubiquiti has a strong community of users and developers who actively contribute to developing and enhancing their products. This vibrant community results in frequent firmware updates, bug fixes, and the availability of third-party integrations. Ubiquiti also provides an API that allows for automation and integration with other systems. Although widely adopted, Cisco Meraki does not have the same level of openness and community support.
Another advantage of Ubiquiti is its ability to operate locally without requiring a constant connection to the cloud. This local control ensures that network operations can continue even during internet outages or when cloud services are inaccessible. Additionally, local control provides an extra layer of data security for organizations with strict privacy requirements. Cisco Meraki heavily relies on cloud connectivity, which may not be suitable for all network design scenarios.
We offer and install point-to-point building connections. This can eliminate the need to trench lines to other buildings requiring network connectivity. These solutions are outdoor-rated and offer great reliability. We can scale these connections from feet to miles, depending on your needs. If you need a primary or a secondary (backup) connection, a wireless point-to-point can be a great alternative to a costly fiber line to a building. Many times we find buried lines get damaged. A wireless point-to-point requires only power at each building.
This answer can vary by many factors. However, we offer installs starting at $2,500. This includes a firewall controller, rack, two access points, and labor to install for most sites.
YES, every solution we design can start small and scale to your future needs.
YES, we offer several outdoor-rated solutions for your Wi-Fi and harsh condition needs.
