I’ve been using Ubiquiti equipment since the original PowerStation. I took it to the next level with Unifi. I slowly acquired more and more equipment until their controller software had such an incredible sight into my network and it’s workings. An insight that makes maintenance and troubleshooting effortless. Moving from the USG Pro to UDM Pro i immediately enjoy the faster speeds and the fancy touch screen panel. What i don’t like is it’s complete lack of integration with non-local controllers and the missing features in its switch component.
As you can see from this image, i am a fan of link aggregation. It is an inexpensive way to maximize existing infrastructure and improve network performance. Unfortunately, the 8 ports on the UDM are currently incapable of this feature. I was hoping to remove one of the switches from my closet as i move links to the UDM, but it was not to be. This seems like a serious oversight for a Pro branded unit. I am hoping they fix this with a future update, but will not be holding my breath.
