UBIQUITI EdgePoint Outdoor Router 8 (EP-R8)
UBIQUITI EdgePoint Outdoor Router 8 (EP-R8)
UBIQUITI EdgePoint Outdoor Router 8 (EP-R8), WISP control point with 6 x Gbit LAN, 2 x Gbit LAN/SFP combination ports, 600Mhz CPU, 2GB RAM, 9 x RJ45 ports supports POE
Ubiquiti Networks introduces the EdgePoint™, part of the EdgeMAX® platform. The first application-specific designed WISP control point, the EdgePoint combines EdgeMAX routing features with fiber backhaul and versatile powering capabilities.
The EdgePoint is available in three models:
• EP-R6 Layer-3 router
• EP-R8 Layer-3 router
• EP-S16 Layer-2 switch with some layer-3 capabilities
Breakthrough in Tower Deployment
The EdgePoint features FiberProtect to significantly reduce electrostatic discharge (ESD) failures and electromagnetic interference (EMI), greatly improve data signal integrity, and consolidate the wired data backhaul to a single fiber cable run for long-distance connectivity.
A single, compact controller efficiently eliminates clutter, expensive cabinets, extraneous installations, and excessive maintenance.
The ruggedized case withstands outdoor conditions, including wind, rain, and snow. The included cable sleeve protects the cables and cable opening. If you prefer, you can swap it out for your own conduit.
For the EP-R6 and EP-R8, powerful routing features – such as load balancing and failover– provide redundancy and increased performance for outdoor wireless links.
For the EP-S16, layer-2 link aggregation provides similar redundancy and increased performance benefits.
Versatile Power Options
Powered by 54VDC or by PoE, the EP-R8 and EP-S16 can support 54 or 24V passive PoE to power all Ubiquiti® products, including airFiber® and airMAX®.
Powered by 24VDC or by PoE, the EP-R6 can support 24V passive PoE to power most Ubiquiti products. Example of EdgePoint as WISP Control Point The EdgePoint replaces a cabinet containing a patch panel, power rack, multiple PoE adapters, syslog server, AP (for EdgePoint management), switch, router, and modem.
Intuitive User Interface
The EdgePoint features a graphical user interface designed for convenient setup and control. Accessed via a network port and web browser, the user-friendly interface provides intuitive management with a virtual view of the ports, displaying physical connectivity, speed, and status.
Depending on whether you are configuring a router (EP-R6 or EP-R8) or switch (EP-S16), the configuration interface will differ.
The EP-R6 or EP-R8 offers robust features, including:
• VLAN interfaces for network segmentation
• Static routes and support of routing protocols: OSPF, RIP, and BGP
• Firewall policies and NAT rules
• Application identification with Deep Packet Inspection (DPI)
• DHCP services
• Quality of Service (QoS)
• Network administration and monitoring tools
• Administrator and operator accounts
• Comprehensive IPv6 support
The EP-S16 provides advanced features, including:
• VLAN, Private VLAN, Voice VLAN
• Link Aggregation
• DHCP Snooping, IGMP Snooping
• TACACS+, RADIUS, 802.1X, MAC Filtering, ACL
• DiffServ, CoS
• Static Routing, Policy-Based Routing
