Advanced Routing Technology for the Masses
Ubiquiti Networks introduces the EdgePoint, part of the EdgeMAX platform. The first application-specific designed WISP control point, the EdgePoint combines EdgeMAX routing features with fiber backhaul and versatile powering capabilities. The EdgePoint offers an innovative combination of robust routing performance, fiber backhaul capability, and the convenience of passive PoE support.
The EP-R6 features five RJ45 Ethernet ports and one SFP Ethernet port.
- Power Options
- 24VDC, 3A Terminal Block
- PoE Input
- (5) 24V, 0.7A Passive PoE Output Ports*
- (1) SFP Port
The ruggedized case withstands outdoor conditions, including wind, rain, and snow. The included cable sleeve protects the cables and cable opening. If you prefer, you can swap it out for your own conduit.
For the EP-R6 and EP-R8, powerful routing features – such as load balancing and failover– provide redundancy and increased performance for outdoor wireless links.
Versatile Power Options
Powered by 24VDC or by PoE, the EP-R6 can support 24V passive PoE to power most Ubiquiti products.
Breakthrough in Tower Deployment
The EdgePoint features FiberProtect to significantly reduce electrostatic discharge (ESD) failures and electromagnetic interference (EMI), greatly improve data signal integrity, and consolidate the wired data backhaul to a single fiber cable run for long-distance connectivity.
Example of a Backhaul Deployment for the EdgePoint
The EdgePoint runs fiber to the top of the tower so no cabinet is needed and there are no long Ethernet cable runs.
A single, compact controller eliminates clutter, expensive cabinets, extraneous installations, and excessive maintenance.
Example of EdgePoint as WISP Control Point
The EdgePoint replaces a cabinet containing a patch panel, power rack, multiple PoE adapters, syslog server, AP (for EdgePoint management), switch, router, and modem.
Advanced Routing Applications
Powerful routing features – such as link balancing – provide redundancy and increased performance for outdoor wireless links.

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.
Intuitive User Interface
The EdgePoint features a graphical user interface designed for convenient setup and control. Accessed via a network port and web browser, the user-friendly interface provides intuitive management with a virtual view of the ports, displaying physical connectivity, speed, and status.
Depending on whether you are configuring a router (EP-R6 or EP-R8) or switch (EP-S16), the configuration interface will differ.
The EP-R6 or EP-R8 offers robust features, including:
- VLAN interfaces for network segmentation
- Static routes and support of routing protocols: OSPF, RIP, and BGP
- Firewall policies and NAT rules
- Application identification with Deep Packet Inspection (DPI)
- DHCP services
- Quality of Service (QoS)
- Network administration and monitoring tools
- Administrator and operator accounts
- Comprehensive IPv6 support
The EP-S16 provides advanced features, including:
- VLAN, Private VLAN, Voice VLAN
- Link Aggregation
- DHCP Snooping, IGMP Snooping
- TACACS+, RADIUS, 802.1X, MAC Filtering, ACL
- DiffServ, CoS
- Static Routing, Policy-Based Routing
Configuration by CLI
The CLI provides quick and flexible configuration by command line and features the following:
- For power users, configuration and monitoring of all advanced features
- Direct access to standard Linux tools and shell commands (EP-R6 or EP-R8 only)
- CLI access through the following:
- Serial console port (EP-R8 or EP-S16 only)
- Graphical user interface (EP-R6 or EP-R8 only)
For the EP-R8, the Dashboard screen displays detailed statistics: IP information, MTU, transmit and receive speeds, and status for each interface.
For the EP-R8, the Routing > Routes screen displays static, connected, RIP, and/or OSFP routes. You can add static routes on this screen.
An industry-standard command-line interface (CLI) is available for advanced users.
