Why did you not go for a full UniFi or a full EdgeMax solution instead of mix-and-match? FROM miguemely
Good question, thanks for asking
The one factor to consider is the timing of my purchases, this was purchased over the last 2 years.
I brought the USG Pro 4 - big mistake - no firewall configuration at the time so returned immediately and replaced it with the ER8 which was cheaper anyway.
I also needed layer 3 switch, brought the UniFi Switch being mislead, like many others, into thinking it was layer 3. Then I realised it wasn't but still needed a POE switch so i kept it. So ended up i buying the EdgeSwitch 48 because it has layer 3 routing + 10gb SFP+ and it doesn't break the bank.
However, I REALLY like the UniFi Dashboard and i already had 3 aps, so for access switches (which don't need layer3 routing) such as the two 8 ports I just opted for UniFi because they are much easier to manage.
While I would like to have the single pane manage that UniFi boasts, for me right now the USG does not fulfill my requirements, and i really need internal routing faster than 1gb. Just as FTZ said "USG is a joke when you're serious about networking" So for now i have to deal with a mixed infrastructure.
Well true, but the switching gear, how does that tie into that? FROM miguemely
Simply easy of management. The access switches don't need layer 3 routing, so unifi was a better choice as they are much easier to manage. The 24 Port explained above. Basically i brought thinking it was layer3 and POE. It wasnt layer3 but was POE so kept to use with APs.
