Ubiquiti Edge Switch 12 Fiber - fiber optic switch

There aren't many manufacturers of professional networking and WiFi devices. And this is not surprising. For example, access points with a high signal amplification factor and enterprise-level switches must cope with the heavy loads of large office networks.
Such criteria are met by products from the well-known company Ubiquiti Networks. The company has quickly gained popularity due to the combination of high quality and low price of
its products.

Fiber optic cable is most commonly used to connect remote network segments. Unlike twisted pair, which provides data transmission with cable lengths of up to 200-300 meters, fiber optic cable has low signal attenuation and can calmly handle spans of 10-15 km. In addition, optical lines are not completely susceptible to electrical discharges and exhibit the highest data transmission rate with a record of 255 terrabits per second. The advantages of optical fiber over twisted pair are obvious here. With the increase in the number of optical communication lines, there is naturally a demand for fiber-oriented switches. And such a novelty was introduced to the market by Ubiquiti - EdgeSwitch 12 Fiber.

Equipment and features

TheUbiquiti EdgeSwitch 12 Fiber is a fiber switch with 12 gigabit sfp ports. It should be noted that 8 of them can also operate at 100 MB/s, while the rest only support the gigabit standard. In addition to SFP, the switch also has 4 traditional RG45 Ethernet ports that also operate at speeds up to 1 Gbps.

It should be noted that the Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch 12 Fiber has a large reserve of processing power, which completely eliminates the problem of unstable operation of the switch in case of heavy network usage. With a physical port capacity of 16 Gbps, the switch can support up to 32 Gbps with a packet throughput of 23.81 million/packet per second.

However, this is where the benefits of the EdgeMAX WebUI end for some reason, you get the impression that the software is not yet fully developed and many features are simply missing. In this case, you can switch to the previous version of the EdgeMAX WebUI"Legacy interface".
Legacy interface WebUI

Configuration in "Legacy" EdgeMAX WebUI

Legacy EdgeMAX software's extensive feature set includes much more than just routing. The ability to create VLANs, bridges, tunnel interfaces, use OSPF, RIP and BGP routing protocols, apply ACLs or firewall-based security. All major connection types are supported: IPsec, OpenVPN, L2TP, PPTP and VPN. All features are managed through a single unified configuration that can be accessed through a web interface or command line interface.
Configuration in "Legacy" EdgeMAX WebUI
With the variety of features and interface capabilities of EdgeSwitch 12 Fiber and Legacy, you can easily deploy a network for a mid-sized enterprise.

Summary - advantages and disadvantages of Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch 12 Fiber

Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch 12 Fiber is the perfect choice for switching optical connections when connecting distant network segments. High performance, reliability and ease of configuration - these are the main features of the new switch, which distinguish it from similar devices from other manufacturers. It is also worth noting that despite its rich functionality, the power consumption of the device is low, at 56 W.
However, there are also disadvantages, which consist in the incomplete implementation of the new WebUI. You'll have to switch over and work with the Legacy interface or even the console port and command line to get the hardware set up right. However, Ubiquiti will most likely fix this point soon. On the other hand, in the official documentation (Datasheet) of the EdgeSwitch 12 Fiber switch, there is a paragraph "IEEE 802.3an-2006: 10GBASE-T" - which implies that the switch should support RJ45 connection ports at 10 Gbps, which it does not.
