About this deal

The problems start when the access points do start to use their maximum demand. At this point, things will start to malfunction. It is normally the last access point to be plugged in that suffers the most, and it is a difficult issue to troubleshoot as the problems will be intermittent.

I’m running one cable over the roof (into centre of house) so need a 10 gig hub I can plug my pc into too. Then one for the WiFi point.

Thanks mate. I thought the - in the title meant it could do + and -. Is ny best bet to buy an injector any other 10 g port you would recommend that can do PoE to power a device. We have a few criteria that we look for in a PoE switch, and we make sure that the switch is capable of meeting these criteria before we deploy it. If you want to drive yourself mad, focus on small spec differences and compare the Professional 8 PoE to every alternative out there. I prefer to zoom out and look at the new Professional 8 PoE for what it is: something to fill a small hole in a big lineup.

The Industrial and Mission Critical switches are both what I consider specialty models. The Industrial features a rugged fanless enclosure, designed for dirty, hot, or other challenging environments. It also has 8 PoE++ and 430W of power budget, so it is great for powering a lot of high-power PoE equipment too. PoE injectors are a simple solution for a single Access Point. They are pretty cheap and a good option if you plan to deploy just one or maybe two Access Points. Then you want a UniFi Dream Machine (UDM) SE and that will take your 2.5GbE input into its 2.5GbE RJ45 or 10GbE SFP+ WAN port (you may need an RJ45 to SFP+ adapter depending on how your ONT is terminated).There are a lot of Instant On switch options, but no high-end desktop model quite like the Pro 8 PoE. See my other posts on Aruba Instant On for more details. MikroTik There is still some Cisco-ness to the small business switches, but they are significantly cheaper and simpler than their Catalyst 9000 models. The Small Business 220 and 250 offer very competitive pricing for similar hardware, and the 350 and Catalyst 1000 line are a step up in price, but a big step up in many other areas as well. If you want a layer 3 switch, the features you'll find on even a cut-down Small Business model will be significantly more complete, more documented, and more likely to do what you want to do. This is a simple comparison. The two 60W 802.3bt PoE++ ports become 30W 802.3at PoE+, but all eight Ethernet ports move from 1 Gbps to 2.5 Gbps. The Pro 8 PoE mentions metal as part of its enclosure, the Enterprise 8 PoE does not. The Enterprise 8 PoE is slightly heavier and hotter, but they are mostly the same otherwise.

To be clear, we are not suggesting that Ubiquiti Unifi switches are not of high quality. They are excellent and we use them regularly, particularly in commercial and business deployments. Our point is that they will not make a significant difference in a simple home deployment. If you wish the Professional 8 PoE had more ports, more PoE, or more high-bandwidth interfaces, the Enterprise line is where you should look. Well beyond the smaller or cheaper options covered above, these are the top-of-the-line. Buy It Direct Ltd is a limited company registered in England. Registered number 04171412.

Had been considering buying one for ages, finally pulled the trigger and wished I'd done so earlier. Will come in very handy now I have plenty of spare PoE ports. Awesome product. Had been considering buying one for ages, finally pulled the trigger and wished I'd done so earlier. Will come in very handy now I have plenty of spare PoE ports. Ubiquiti does sell a very useful PoE convertor which can be used to change a PoE to passive 24v PoE. We often uses these in Point to Point installations. Aruba Instant On is another UniFi competitor, with a lineup of cloud-managed switches and access points. Aruba’s enterprise equipment is some of the best in the industry, but Instant On is a simpler, cheaper option that fits within the same price and feature area as UniFi. If you bring your own firewall/gateway and are OK with relying on Aruba’s cloud software, there is a lot to like. The software is simple to use and the hardware is well-engineered.
