Console Port

RJ45 serial console port for Command Line Interface (CLI) management.

Power Port

Connect the included Power Cord to the Power port.

Hardware Installation

  1.  
  2. OR

Connecting Ethernet

Note: The PoE settings for ports 1-48 are set to PoE+ auto by default, so 802.3af/at devices can be plugged in and automatically receive PoE. For instructions on how to enable 24V passive PoE, refer to “Configuring PoE Settings”.

Connecting SFP+/SFP

These ports support the specified module types at the following speeds:

Accessing the Configuration Interface

The EdgeSwitch is set to DHCP by default, so it will try to automatically obtain an IP address. If that fails, then it will use the default fallback IP address, 192.168.1.2. Proceed to the appropriate section, DHCP or “Fallback IP Address”:

DHCP

Use one of the following methods:

To log in, follow these steps:

  1. Launch your web browser. Type the appropriate IP address in the address field. Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).
  2. Enter ubnt in the Username and Password fields. Click Sign In.

  3. The EdgeSwitch Configuration Interface will appear. Customize additional settings as needed.

For more information on PoE configuration, refer to “Configuring PoE Settings”. For more information, refer to the EdgeSwitch documentation, which is available at ui.com/download/edgemax

Fallback IP Address

  1. Ensure that your computer (or other host machine) is connected to the EdgeSwitch.
  2. Configure the Ethernet adapter on your host system with a static IP address on the 192.168.1.x subnet.
  3. Launch your web browser. Type the appropriate IP address in the address field (192.168.1.2 is the default fallback IP address). Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).

  4. Enter ubnt in the Username and Password fields. Click Sign In.

  5. The EdgeSwitch Configuration Interface will appear. Go to Settings .

  6. Change the IP Address to a unique IP address. Click Apply.

Note: If you change the IP settings, then the session will be cut off, and you will need to reconnect to the EdgeSwitch using the new IP address.

Customize additional settings as needed. For more information on PoE configuration, refer to “Configuring PoE Settings”.

UNMS Management

You can manage your device using UNMS, which lets you configure, monitor, upgrade, and back up your devices using a single application. Get started at www.unms.com

Configuring PoE Settings

The PoE settings for ports 1-48 are set to PoE+ by default, so 802.3af/at devices can be plugged in and automatically receive PoE.

WARNING: Before activating 24V passive PoE, ensure that the connected device supports PoE and the supplied voltage.

  1. Go to Dashboard .
  2. For the Ethernet port you want to configure, click the PoE drop-down menu.

  3. Select the appropriate mode: Off, 24V, or PoE+.

For more information, refer to the EdgeSwitch documentation, which is available at ui.com/download/edgemax
