"In simple terms, active PoE refers to any type of PoE that negotiates the correct voltage between the switch and the PoE-powered device. Passive PoE does no such negotiation, and as such is always sending electric current out over the ethernet cable at a certain voltage regardless of the device it's going to."

Yes. Be aware that it is strictly 24v PoE and will not run 48v PoE APs (i.e. UAP-AC-PRO). Plain UAP-AC-LITE and UAP-AC-LR will work with this. Otherwise you'll need 48v poe injectors.

Of the EdgeRouter X models, THIS is the one to get, because regardless of the SFP the big bonus is that all 5 ports get PoE, and it's true passive PoE and not just passthrough (granted it would be nice if it were full 802.11af/at and capable of 48v, but it'll still run a set of AP AC-Lites just fine). $60 is a decent price for it. It's gone lower on rare occassions, but it's still well worth it at $60.



FYI, you can run this as effectively a 5 port managed switch, with (passive, 24v) PoE on all 5 ports.

Nice deal. Already got their router and AP-Lite. Just waiting on a deal for their 5 Ports - Managed switch and I'd be all set.

Yep.

FYI.. this is sorta their legacy router. If you have Ubiquiti Unifi Access Points (UAPs).. chances are you want their USG (Unifi Security Gateway) router and not this one. This router is a more classic style interface.. and does not use the newer Unifi controller "single pane of glass" for operation.

The unifi interface still lags behind on features from edgeos. Ubuiquiti is still making new models for the edgemax line

For anyone interested, it looks like Ubiquiti will be releasing a UF-RJ45-1G to convert those SFP ports to ethernet. Of course you can use any number of third party modules to do this, but its nice to see that there will be an officially supported one soon.

Here is an alternative one to use in the mean time: LINK [amazon.com]

Newegg seems to be having almost daily deals on some piece of Ubiquiti equipment lately. Wonder if the UAP-AC-PRO AP's will be going on sale? Might be time to do my house right!

Thank you!
No. you can use any switch in you home network. If you have unify and usg, the switch will only get you a little extra insight if you use the unifi software to examine data flows in your home network.

Other member's have pointed this out, but, as to no fault of their own, in a manner that may not stick out as it should for the casual/beginner network interested consumer.

This is PASSIVE POE NOT ACTIVE PoE (power over Ethernet) . If you're not certain as to what that means and whether it pertains to you or your buying this router simply because it mentions PoE as a feature and you just know that it was recommended that you get something that supports this tech. , do yourself a favor and read up on the difference between the two.
"In simple terms, active PoE refers to any type of PoE that negotiates the correct voltage between the switch and the PoE-powered device. Passive PoE does no such negotiation, and as such is always sending electric current out over the ethernet cable at a certain voltage regardless of the device it's going to."

I use this to passively power an ER-X down the line, which then acts as a dumb switch. Great router. I also use the SFP port as an extra Ethernet with an SFP adapter.
