Always been a big fan of Ubiquiti wireless gear. So choosing the components for a network upgrade was straightforward. Went for Ubiquiti Edge line for more advanced configuration options and the support of UNMS.
Ended up getting the following devices:
- EdgeRouter 4P
- EdgeSwitch 10XP
- Aircube AC
- UF-MM-1G SFP Module
- ACT LC-LC Fiber Optic Cable
Configuring the EdgeRouter or my ISP can be found here.
Connected eth3 of the Edgerouter 4P to port9 of the EdgeRouter 10XP via a fiber optic cable. Just to test is out, never worked with fiber before. The speed was the same as copper. (1Gbps)
Port 1 and 2 of the EdgeSwitch configured as a LAG group for the VMware ESXi server.
Port 3 and 4 PoE for a camera and the Aircube AC
Finally UNMS installed on a VM for easy configuration and maintenance.
