So it´s come to the point, that i´d call my productive setup as ‚finished‘ and I thought why not sharing my story
Equipment: USG 16 port 150w POE switch 2x UniFi AP AC Lite
Last year I got a condo and with that there was the chance in getting Cat in every room with a central point for my networking. In addition I planed network ports in two locations for 2 access points, one for the living room area and one in my office connecting the bedroom. I used one UAP Lite already and decided to go full UniFi. I´m getting a pretty good coverage on about 110m2 with two AP AC Lites now.
Those are connected to a rack mounted 16 USW 16 Port POE and a USG. The newest device is a Draytek Vigor 130 to function as a VDSL Modem in bridge mode, because I wanted to get rid of the Deutsche Telekom Router that I used and the Double NAT which came with it. The modem ist now connected to the USG´s WAN port and I got a second connection to VOIP port which I configured as a 2nd LAN to reach the Vigor’s management web interface and via snmp. I needed to do that because the eth0 was now serving the PPPoE and not getting a static IP from the GUI and loosing it when I configured it through the CLI.
Controller-wise I’m running a VM on my HP Microserver that is running a VMware esxi, now in Version 5.5.9 - with that I configured a L2TP remote User VPN from the GUI
As you can see from the pictures there are quite some power supplies in my network cabinet, so for airflow and mainly for cooling the switch I installed a silent 12cm case fan. I really recommend that because it keeps the UniFi switch from turning on its fan which is pretty loud.
