UNMS - Getting Started


The Ubiquiti Network Management System (UNMS) allows you to configure, upgrade and monitor several different Ubiquiti device platforms: airMAX, airCube, airFiber, EdgeMAX and UFiber. Note that UniFi devices are managed by the UniFi Network Controller and not UNMS. See the UniFi Network Overview article for more information.

  • See our Roadmap article for features that are planned to be added to UNMS.
