Show Notes

Not long after speaking with Cody from Mac Telecom Networks about all things UniFi, I reached out to Alex at HostIFi, as I’d heard about their cloud hosted UniFi controllers from several of the UniFi centric YouTubers I follow, to see if we could do a bit of a follow up.

Alex very kindly agreed and we sat down to have a chat about what HostIFi is and to understand a bit more about the use case and a typical deployment.

Networking is something that I really get excited about, even if I don’t always have the budget to afford the latest gear. If you’ve got any UniFi stories you’d like to share, we’d love to hear from you, so send a note over to [email protected], leave a comment on the post, or start a discussion in Goodpods.

If you liked this episode or any of our content, we’d greatly appreciate any little bit of support you can throw our way over at our Ko-Fi page.

In this episode, I talk with network consultant and YouTuber, Cody from MacTelecom Networks who also happens to be Canadian so is typically a nice-guy. Fair warning, there’s an absolute UniFi bias in this episode, but no-one from Ubiquiti has been involved in any part of this production.
