This is a brief introduction of the new UniFi AC SHD, and as its name states, this is the perfect AP for a Secure High Density deployment. With its built-in, dedicated security and monitoring radios, the AC-SHD provides visibility into site performance, channel planning and local interferers, allowing for a quick and easy response with our UniFi controller.

Why the UAP-AC-SHD?
With the AC-SHD, unprecedented network security meets best-available performance. There is no need to sacrifice good connectivity for the sake of security anymore. This is the perfect AP for high density environments where sensitive information is being transferred over the network. Banks, hospitals, universities, corporate environments: any deployment where user data safety is not only crucial, but must be actively monitored. Let the UAP-AC-SHD do that for you.
How does it work?
The SHD has three key features that make it perfect for the job:
- Our airTime feature gives real-time visibility into channel utilization at packet level (see article here).
- Our airView feature gives real-time visibility into RF environment across all available channels (article coming soon).
- The dedicated dual-band radio constantly monitors and protects against threats.
