Just released by UBNT.

 

Introducing the New UniFi AC Access Points

Available in four models, the new UniFi AC AP features up to 5x faster speeds to support high-density Wi-Fi networks. [up to 450 Mbps in 2.4Ghz, 1300 Mbps in 5Ghz]

  • Up to 3x3 MIMO, 802.11ac, Dual-Concurrent Radio Technology
  • Advanced RF: Spectral Analysis, Band Steering, and Airtime Fairness
  • New Industrial Design for Versatile and Seamless Wall/Ceiling Mounting
  • Android and iOS Easy Setup Mobile Application Support
  • Powerful Features for Enterprise, Hospitality, and Education Markets

Unconfirmed prices at MSRP Lite $89, LR $109, Pro $149, EDU $399

A significant upgrade from current models at a much lower price (or similar).

EDU model apparently includes a built-in speaker that can be controlled from a mobile phone. Geared towards schools, could be an interesting option for large homes...

 

Apparently shipping next week for availability two weeks from now (according a rep in the UBNT forum)

Great! Been looking to replace my Apple Airport Extreme, but the current $299(ish) per AC access point price was a little high (especially for 3 indoor + 2 outdoor AC Units). If those prices are right, Im definitely in!

Anyway thanks for sharing!

You may not need a 1:1 replacement though. They have much better coverage.

The pricing is very attractive on these. Hopefully they are able to keep them in stock and get them shipped out quickly, as this seems to be a common problem when Ubiquiti drops a new product.

 

I have the original UAP's and 1 of the first-gen AC AP's in my house now and look forward to replacing them with these new ones.

You have them ? And is there any harm in more units or just overkill ?

I have one it covers my entire apartment through steel frame and plumbing and core risers and ft+ thick external brick walls.

The a gen 5 airport did not, not even close. And that was better than the asus it replaced.

More units could result in overlapping signals. If you properly place the units on 1. 6 and 11 you should avoid that though.
