Network structure:
The backoffice has 42U rack with USG-PRO-4 and 4 US-24 switches, the workshop has one US-24 switch. The client did not wanted URL filtering thus the USG, would like the USG to do basic filtering someday. Both the offices have 2 UAP-AC-PRO each. The Unifi controller is running on a NUC/Linux installation, do not trust the cloud key for stability. The CCTV has a seperate VLAN connected to a 3rd party provided switches.

I would like to hear why you do not trust the CloudKey?  Have you ever had a stability problem with the CloudKey?

I've 2 corporate and 1 home installation on cloud key, all of them keeps hanging after few days and needs reboot. Got tired of upgrading it with new firmware and hoping it would have fixed the issue. The days they remain operational is just random. A little extra cost for a NUC, resulted in a very stable controller installation. Would love to hear which version your cloudkeys r on? Maybe will try one more time if it's something recent.

Is there a specific reason you are using a standalone media converter rather than an SFP module?

Hi, nice observation, the media converter is provided by the ISP and is a WAN connection. We were not sure what kind of last mile the ISP would provide, sometimes it is on GPON. Besides, did not wanted to replace their media converter with a SFP on the router, they would disown line down service calls, plus it gets easier to disconnect the cat6 from the router and hook it to a laptop (isolate wan) to quickly troueshoot WAN issues by the ISP.

Any particular reason why you chose multiple 24 port switches and not 48's?

 

Just curious.

Hi Colter, Answer: Logistics. The distributor had more lead time for delivery of 48p switches.

The gen 1 cloudkeys do have a habit of bombing their databases if they are dirty downed.  the gen 2 have a built in battery that initiates a clean shutdown upon power loss.
