UniFi Golden AP: We have a winner!

by Deleted Account on ‎01-29-2014 06:39 AM

Last year, we announced our golden AP contest, in which the one millionth UniFi access point customer receives a gold-plated AP; we finally have our winner!

The gilded access point was discovered by Israel Arruda Neto, Owner of FasterNet, a WISP based in Brazil. When he saw the AP, he was in disbelief that he had found it. “You can’t imagine how many people are asking me if I created this photo in Photoshop,” Neto told us after posting it on Facebook.

Israel had previously been using other products but decided to switch to UniFi because of his positive experiences with AirMAX. Besides how easy it is to set up and use, he loves the controller and how little he needs to configure.  

FasterNet uses Ubiquiti products to serve 35 Brazilian cities, giving about 20,000 customers access to wireless internet. It provides both WiFi and GPON, which is popular in Brazil in the absence of mobile wireless. His current project is a 1,000 AP deployment to provide public high-speed Internet to multiple cities in the country.

Congratulations, Israel! Enjoy your golden AP and thanks for using UniFi.

But really, what are the signal characteristics of the AP?  Does he get to redeem it for anything?

by

I think the signal characteristics of this AP are completely irrelevant. I doubt this will be hooked up and installed anywhere. This is a collection item worth quite a lot, and it will most likely be kept under lock and key for eternity.

I really thought there would be more to winning/finding the golden unifi, confetti dropped from the ski, fireworks, maybe a cameo in a UWN commercial? Maybe a dinner with Robert, Matt, JT, Craig, and Ben. Nope, all he got was an "enjoy your unifi" post from Matt.........what a bummer! But be warned if that is ever a prize, Robert seems to like pizza shops for dinner and even then he ordered the "special"! Really, a BILLIONAIRE that eats the spaghetti "special".....he has so much to learn. I have been told that seasoned BILLIONAIRES have live monkey brains flown in for dinner!

Congratulations to the 1,000 AP project (and you can spare the golden one for sure). But what a PITA that there's no released firmware to support the advertized features of these 1,000 APs. Smiley Sad

Does anyone know what it is worth?

by
on ‎02-13-2014 12:44 AM

It's probably only worth US$100. 
How about I give you US$150 for it? Fair deal? 

(Congratulations!!! btw)
