Managing this switch and the network it resides on is simple, thanks to a variety of management tools including DHCP server capabilities, monitoring tools such as ping, trace, discover, and the ability to set up and configure operator and admin user accounts. To secure the network, Ubiquiti has implemented a variety of features including advanced firewall policies and groups as well as NAT rules for specific packet addressing.
Installation of this EdgeRouter is simple, as it comes compatible with a standard rackmount design. Once installed, Ubiquiti offers intuitive management features including an easy-to-use interface complete with graphical menus that can be accessed through a web browser. Additional tools include support of OSPF, RIP, and BGP routing protocols, firewall policies, DHCP services, Quality of Service (QoS) support, and much more.
- Advanced Routing Technology for the Masses
The Ubiquiti Networks EdgeRouter 4 combines carrier class reliability with enterprise level features in a compact and affordable unit. The EdgeRouter 4 offers Gigabit Ethernet ports and an SFP port for a fiber link. The EdgeRouter 4 is also capable of routing up to 3.4 million packets per second and has a line rate of 4 Gb/s.
Powered by a proprietary and intuitive graphical interface, EdgeOS, EdgeRouters can easily be configured for routing, security, and management features required to efficiently run your network. For advanced network professionals, an integrated CLI is available for quick and direct access using familiar commands.
Even greater convenience and flexibility is provided by the UNMS app, which makes it possible to manage the EdgeRouter remotely from your mobile device.
- Manage Your Network
Set up multiple DHCP servers to assign IP ranges in different subnets on the different interfaces. Easily control dynamic and static IP addressing for your network devices.
Conveniently track network activity and devices from tools such as Ping, Trace, Discover, Packet Capture, and Log Monitor.
- Secure Your Network
Organize the rules you apply in the order you specify.
Apply the policies to groups filtered by IP address, network address, or port number.
The EdgeRouter changes packet addressing based on your customized source and destination NAT rules.
- Direct Traffic Flow
Each port functions as an independent interface. You can also configure Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) interfaces for network segmentation.
Configure static routes and dynamic routing protocols to effectively manage the routes used by the EdgeRouter.
Intuitive User Interface
The EdgeRouter provides 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. The Dashboard screen displays detailed statistics: IP information, MTU, transmit and receive speeds, and status for each physical and virtual interface.
