I’m wondering if anyone has deployed the Unifi equipment in a large apartment project - 200+ units. I’ve done about 30 projects with unifi equipment where the building has fewer than 60 apartment units. I use all unifi equipment and pfsense as the firewall. So long as I don’t use the Unifi APs, I have no issues at all.
The new network for my 173 unit community will be simple:
- pfsense firewall in HA
- 10G core Unifi switch
- 48 Port Unifi Switches in all the IDFs connected with fiber to the core switch
- 8 port Unifi switch in each unit connected to the IDF with (1) cat 6
- Every unit has a separate vlan off pfsense
Tenants are required to provide their own router in their apartments where they manage their own wifi. This eliminates 95% of all support calls. In my experience this setup for works up to 50 units. But I’ve never done 173 units with this setup.
Any feedback / comments on my proposed setup?
