Higher performance USG - Solid State (fan-free)

Submitted by - a month ago
Status: New Idea

The subject says it all really.


Now that FTTP is becoming more prevalent, and the feature set of the USG3 grows, throughput is becoming constrained.


Additional points to consider

Powered by PoE

WAN port with SFP+ option

LAN port with SFP+ option

10GE RJ45 ports

drop console port to make space for SFP options


A quiet, more capable gateway device is overdue (would happily test)

Agreed, the USG3 and USG-Pro's hardware are getting a bit dated for the current WAN speeds lately. And the XG is way too expensive for home / small office. 


I'd be happy with a UniFi modified version of the EdgeRouter-6P.

I totally agree.
If I add one thing, you may not need PoE in home or SOHO. These places seem to require simple switching and DHCP functionality for 10Gbps. Now there are needs at home or SOHO 10Gbps with SFP+ and RJ45 port too. As an alternative to this, I can see the router using mikrotik.com. We look forward to UBNT being able to play a leading role in this area as well.

Yes please. Per the original post.

I have been seriously looking at the ER4 as an alternative.


A Unifi version of the ER4 good, with SFP+ and 803.2at/af PoE powered better.
