Can anyone from Ubiquiti confirm what is going on with stock at the moment! Particularly UK but also european distributors.
Aircube ISPs are for ever out of stock. We have orders which won't be fulfilled for up to 2 months.
IsoStations are out of stock and will be for another month
NanoBeam 5AC 19's are now out of stock and awaiting delivery date
PowerBeam 5AC Gen 2 are out of stock but low quantities available soon
This is the same situation across all UK distributors and some of the European ones as well.
Over the past few months Loco 5ACs have been constantly out of stock. Finally distibutors seem to be on top of them but there's very limited stock of 5 packs.
Basically if we want low end 5AC devices then it has to be NanoStation. The only other option is a conectorised model, either Rocket or PrismStation, both of which are are considerable higher cost.
So what is the problem and what is being done to improve availability?

I second this for the UK. We are severely hampered in what we can do or plan because of an inability to get hold of equipment - not just low end stuff but PowerBeams of all types.

@lpis @gah789 I'm showing that we have quite a few units of the products you mentioned shipping into the region in the coming weeks. I'll direct message both of you to provide some recommendations on where to look for incoming product.
If anyone else is having issues feel free to direct message me for help.

@UBNT-Dallin thanks for the info. Unfortunately it doesn't quite help though. Although you've demonstrated that there are lots of companies receiving stock, the problem is the often the quantity.
Take MS Dist for example, They have ACB-ISP arriving this week, again later in October, then at the beginning of November. To fulfil our open orders we are taking stock from all 3 shipments but that still leaves us short. We're placing orders now that will not be delivered for 6 weeks.
For some reason, no distributors are keeping up with the demand at the moment. The feedback I've had from several is that Ubiquiti cannot provide the quantities they are asking for.

We have stock coming in next week:
and powerbeams are due at the end of October:
We do order by the container, so we do try to keep up by ordering plenty in.
It is not always possible to predict run rates months in advance, we review our order levels regularly and are increasing them every time we order
Hope that helps

@nickshore we do buy some things from you usually when they're out of stock elsewhere. Unfortunately, that comes down to cost. Not necessarily that you're expensive, but because of our trading history elsewhere we get a substantial discount. If that's something we can work on then I'll give you a call in the next few days.

We have trade and credit accounts if you need them.
Discounts can be available, probably best to ring and speak to Chris or Koyn.

Our latest Ubiquiti container has now arrived
We do have some more coming in approx 3 weeks time, so hopefully everyone will be happy.

Just a heads up that we have more stock arriving next week, and more around the 26th November.
If you need products such as Powerbeams it is a good idea to get in touch and reserve stock from the incoming shipments.
