Switching Performance

The UniFi Switch offers the forwarding capacity to simultaneously process traffic on all ports at line rate without any packet loss.

For its total, non-blocking throughput, each UniFi Switch supports up to 8 Gbps with a switching capacity of 16 Gbps.

PoE

The US-8 can be powered by 802.3af/at, 48V passive PoE, or the included power adapter. When the US-8 is powered by 802.3at PoE or the included power supply, port 8 supports 48V (2-pair) PoE passthrough to deliver up to 12W of power.

The following table displays the PoE passthrough options for the US-8:

Power Input PoE Passthrough
802.3af In No PoE Out
802.3at In 802.3af Out
Power Supply (Included) 48V Passive Out

The US-8-60W is powered by its included power adapter. It has four auto-sensing PoE ports delivering up to 15.4W of power per port.

Features:

8-Port Managed Gigabit Switches

The US-8-60W is an 8-port gigabit switch with four 802.3af PoE ports. Its auto-sensing PoE ports deliver up to 15.4W of power per port.

UniFi Controller

Designed for convenient management, the UniFi Controller software allows admins to configure and monitor the UniFi Switch and other UniFi devices using a graphical user interface. You can download it from www.ubnt.com at no extra charge – there is no separate software, licensing, or support fee.

Multi-Site Management

A single instance of the UniFi Controller running in the cloud can manage multiple UniFi sites within a centralized interface. Each site is logically separated and has its own network monitoring, configuration, maps, statistics, and admin accounts.

Switch Configuration

You can access any managed UniFi Switch through the UniFi Controller to configure a variety of features:

  • Operation mode (switching, mirroring, or aggregate) per port
  • Network/VLAN configuration
  • Jumbo frame and flow control services
  • Network settings
  • Storm control setting per port
  • Spanning tree configuration
  • 802.1x control and RADIUS VLAN
  • Debug terminal option for command-line interface

Switch Port Status

You can also view status information for each port:

  • Connection speed and duplex mode
  • TX/RX data rates
  • Network/VLAN setting

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.
