Description

Use the Ubiquiti UniFi Switch 8-150W to provide extra connectors to your office network. The 8 network ports are suitable for Power over Ethernet (PoE+). This means you don't need an extra power socket to connect devices such as phones or access points. The switch has 2 SFP ports, which you can use for a fast fiber optic connection. With the Ubiquiti UniFi Controller, you can control all UniFi switches and access points in your network from the same screen. This means you can use VLAN to split the network into 255 virtual networks in order to determine who can access which part of the network. You can mount this switch on the wall, under a desk, or in a server rack.

    Great switch with or without USG

    Jan Mulder | 21 June 2018 | In the version: 60 W | 1 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • POE
    • 15.4 W per POE port
    • Small
    • management via controller possible
    • hot
    • USG for all functions

    [In use with]
    I bought this switch to power my UniFi AP-AC-LR. It is also connected to a Unifi USG to complete the picture. I run the controller on an HPE Microserver Gen10

    [Unboxing]
    The Unifi US-8-60W comes in a cardboard box, just like the other Unifi products. Ubiquiti does not use plastic for the packaging, which is very environmentally friendly. The box contains the following items

    - Uni-Fi Switch
    - Power Adapter
    - Power Cord
    - Quick Start
    - Plugs
    - Screws

    The last two items are for hanging the switch if you need it.

    [Installation]
    The UniFi Switch is set to DHCP by default, which means that you can plug it into your network and it will request an IP address from the DHCP server. Booting/rebooting the switch isn't very fast, but it doesn't take long either. After the switch has had an IP from the DHCP server, it will be found in the Unifi Controller software.

    [Configuration / In use]

    The unifi switch can be fully configured via the Ubqiuiti controller software. The 4 POE ports can deliver a maximum of 15.4W per port. My AP-AC-Lite consumes 3.30W via the POE port so 15.4W is more than enough. By default, the ports are set to All, which means that they completely route all network traffic. If you have a USG you can create different VLANs and hard link them to a port. The device that will be connected to this port will then get an IP in the range of the VLAN DHCP.

    [Conclusion]
    The UniFi Switch 8-60W is a great switch that can also be used without a USG. However, if you want to make optimal use of the Unifi eco system, you also need a USG.

    Very nice toy for this price and reliable.

    chris guerain | 12 June 2018 | In the version: 60 W | 1 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • manageable
    • Power over Ethernet
    • Relatively small
    • Cheap for what you can do with it
    • Good support can be found online.
    • Gets pretty hot
    • Basic knowledge network
    • After 1 device unifi, you want everything unifi

    I once started with 1 AP of ubiquity unifi. Once you get along well with the ubiquity unifi control center, things go fast. All my old stuff; other switches/access points/cameras soon went towards "trash bin". I now have everything from ubiquity unifi. You just have to really dive into the basics of networking to make it all come to its fullest.

    Good switch with many functions
    • PoE
    • Many advanced features
    • Status LED can be turned off
    • Can be centrally managed
    • Hanging options
    • LEDs are bright
    • Need a USG for many functions

    The Unifi Switch 8 is a good switch with many options. It can be used on PoE and can also pass PoE via port 8. Something that is not indicated in many places is that the switch does not need to be powered via PoE to output PoE on port 8. This can be turned on via the device specific settings in the controller software.

    In my case, the switch is behind the modem of the provider to provide more internet ports in my room. Here the switch is hung under my desk. It quickly became apparent that the LEDs were very bright. Especially the status LED. I quickly turned this off as this is disturbing in a bedroom.

    The PoE on port 8 is used to power an access point (Ubiquity's UAP-AC-PRO). All this is controlled by the ubiquity cloud key gen 2. With the control software on the cloud key (can also be installed on a computer) you can set many advanced functions on the switch. Unfortunately, you need a USG (Unifi Security Gateway) for many of these functions.
