EdgeOS Software

EdgeOS
EdgeMAX Software Platform

EdgeOS provides an intuitive, easy-to-use graphical user interface that makes router features simple to configure and monitor. It even comes with an integrated command-line interface (CLI) right in the browser, allowing access to all the advanced functions of the router.

EdgeOS Box

Packed with Features

  • IPv4/v6 addressing, DHCP client and server, VLANs Static routes, OSPF, RIP, BGP
  • Firewall (ACL-based and zone-based), NAT, QoS
  • VPN: IPsec, L2TP, OpenVPN, PPTP client and server
  • PPPoE client and server, bridging, bonding, GRE, VRRP
  • Dynamic DNS, DNS forwarding, DHCP relay

Intuitive and Powerful Graphical User InterfaceIntuitive and Powerful Graphical User Interface

The Web-based graphical user interface in the EdgeOS is developed using the latest advanced Web technologies and provides powerful functionality with high efficiency. You can reorder firewall rules using drag-and-drop, monitor interface statistics in real time, and even open a command-line interface (CLI) right in the browser.

Broad Feature SetBroad Feature Set

The EdgeOS software includes all common routing features and more. You can create VLAN, bridging, bonding, and tunnel interfaces, use OSPF, RIP, and BGP routing protocols, apply ACL-based or zone-based firewall for security, and choose from IPsec, OpenVPN, L2TP, or PPTP for your VPN needs. All features are managed with a single unified configuration that can be accessed from both the Web GUI and the CLI.

Open PlatformOpen Platform

The EdgeOS platform is not just a router operating system. It is also an open platform based on theDebian Linux distribution. You have complete system-level access including the whole filesystem hierarchy, real shell, root user, etc. Existing Debian packages can be installed on the system, and you can even build your own packages using standard tools.

Bulletproof your networks

TOUGHCable is currently available in two versions: PRO Shielding Protection and CARRIER Shielding Protection.

TOUGHCable PRO is a Category 5e, outdoor, carrier-class shielded cable with an integrated ESD drain wire.

TOUGHCable PRO

TOUGHCable CARRIER is a Category 6, outdoor, carrier-class shielded cable that features an integrated ESD drain wire, anti-crosstalk divider, and secondary shielding. It is rated to provide optimal performance on Gigabit Ethernet networks.

TOUGHCable CARRIER

Additional Information:

  • 24 AWG copper conductor pairs
  • 26 AWG integrated ESD drain wire to prevent ESD attacks and damage
  • PE outdoor-rated, weatherproof jacket
  • Multi-layered shielding
  • Available in lengths of 1000 ft (304.8 m)

TOUGHCable Connectors

Specifically designed for use with Ubiquiti TOUGHCable, TOUGHCable Connectors protect against ESD attacks and Ethernet hardware damage, while allowing rapid field deployment without soldering. The standard TOUGHCable Connectors are available in a box of 100, while the TC-GND versions include ground wires and are available in a box of 20.

ESD attacks are the leading cause for device failures. The diagram below illustrates the areas vulnerable to ESD attacks in a network. By using a grounded Ubiquiti Power over Ethernet (PoE) Adapter along with Ubiquiti TOUGHCable and TOUGHCable Connectors, you can effectively protect against ESD attacks.
