With its latest release (firmware 2.17) in December 2017, Tanaza continues its firmware releases for the Ubiquiti Unifi AC access points, starting with the widely used UniFi AC Mesh Pro, UniFi LR (long range) and UniFi AC PRO.

UBNT’s UAP AC APs are widely used by managed solution providers and hotspot providers globally.

Just after a few months from the release of UBNT’s UAP AC APs Tanaza started developing the firmware for these products. In this way, Tanaza allows enterprise-level cloud-management of the whole UBNT’s Unifi 802.11ac series.

Among all Ubiquiti Unifi AC access points, the devices that are already compatible with Tanaza’s software are: Ubiquiti UniFi AP AC PRO, UniFi AC Lite, UniFi AC In-WALL (AC-IW), UniFi AC Mesh, UniFi AC Mesh PRO, and UniFi AC LR (AC Long Range).

Being a cloud-based software, Tanza allows network administrators to manage their multi-vendor devices from the cloud. Also, network admins can manage Ubiquiti Nanostations from the same dashboard they use for their UniFi devices.

Thanks to Tanaza’s software, it is possible to manage the access points from the cloud and create public hotspots with social login as authentication method. Tanaza replaces the stock firmware and adds enterprise configuration capabilities to multi-vendor devices, including TP-Link, Ubiquiti, D-Link, Netgear, Engenius, Ligowave, and others.

In early 2017, Tanaza implemented a new graphic interface and added many features to its software. Among them, it developed a captive portal that is 4.5X faster in comparison to the previous versions and up to 3x faster than other commonly used captive portals. Furthermore, Tanaza has promptly released a patch for the KRACK vulnerability for all Ubiquiti devices, so as to increase the security levels of all access points that run Tanaza’s firmware.

Tanaza allows scalable multi-site, multi-clients wireless network management and monitoring, and eliminates the need for hardware controllers thanks to its smart alerting system, zero-touch deployment, and centralized dashboard. Other valuable features of Tanaza’s software include a responsive and customizable captive portal with social login and social-actions-based login (Facebook Like and Check-in), a multi-role voucher-based login system, APIs, and integrations with Google Analytics and Mailchimp for wifi marketing campaigns.

Tanaza’s firmware can be installed and uninstalled on Ubiquiti Access Points easily, and the software is available for a 15-days free trial with unlimited clients and connected access points.
