The 8-port ER-8 EdgeRouter with EdgeMAX Technology from Ubiquiti Networks is capable of supporting numerous high-bandwidth clients in an enterprise environment. With the ability to support up to 2 million packets per second for 64-byte packets and 8 Gbps for 512 byte packets this switch is capable of transmitting data quickly and efficiently.

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 more; and the ability to setup 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 access 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.

Manage Your Network

  • DHCP Server: Sets up multiple DHCP servers to assign IP ranges in different subnets on the different interfaces, and easily control dynamic and static IP addressing for your network devices.
  • Monitoring Tools: Conveniently tracks network activity and devices from tools such as Ping, Trace, Discover, Packet Capture, and Log Monitor.
  • User Accounts: You can manage access to the EdgeRouter using unique administrator and operator accounts.

Network Security

  • Firewall Policies: Organizes the rules you apply in the order you specify.
  • Firewall Groups: Applies the policies to groups filtered by IP address, network address, or port number.
  • NAT Rules: The EdgeRouter changes packet addressing based on your customized source and destination NAT rules.

Direct Traffic Flow

  • Interfaces: Each gigabit port functions as an independent interface. You can also configure Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) interfaces for network segmentation.
  • Routing: You can configure static routes and dynamic routing protocols to effectively manage the routes used by the EdgeRouter.

Intuitive User Interface

The ER-8 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 displays detailed statistics like IP information, MTU, transmitting and receiving speeds, and status for each physical and virtual interface.
