Ubiquiti Networks EdgeRouter Infinity ER-8-XG 8-Port 10G SFP+ Router
With aggregate data throughput of up to 80 Gbps, the EdgeRouter Infinity ER-8-XG 8-Port 10G SFP+ Router from Ubiquiti Networks is designed to offer enhanced network connectivity with data transfer rates of up to 10G per port. Alongside the eight network ports, this router also comes equipped with a single RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port and a single RJ45 serial port.
This EdgeRouter Infinity is designed with performance in mind as it comes equipped with a 1.8 GHz processor complete with 16 GB of DDR4 RAM allowing it to handle demanding network environments. In addition to enhanced network performance, users also benefit from enhanced network redundancy, as this router features load balancing, failover support, and redundant power capabilities to keep the network up and running.
Managing your network through the ER-8-XG is simple, thanks to a variety of management features. With the Ubiquiti Network Management System, you can take advantage of a graphical user interface to control a variety of functions including managing DHCP servers, tracking network activity, and managing both network security and network traffic. Along with the graphical user interface, the EdgeRouter also supports CLI (command line interface) offering direct access through the serial console port, SSH, Telnet, and the graphical user interface.
10G Routing Technology
Ubiquiti Networks introduces the EdgeRouter Infinity, the next evolution of the EdgeMAX platform featuring 80 Gbps aggregate throughput.
Powered by a 16-core, 1.8 GHz processor with 16 GB DDR4 RAM, the EdgeRouter Infinity features eight 10G SFP+ ports and a Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port for routing.
Powerful routing features - such as load balancing and failover - provide redundancy and increased performance for your network.
The EdgeRouter Infinity uses a hot-swappable modular power supply. It includes primary and backup AC/DC power supply modules, so it automatically switches over to the backup if the primary power supply fails.
The EdgeRouter Infinity is supported and managed by the Ubiquiti Network Management System. UNMS is a comprehensive management controller featuring a graphic UI that is easy to navigate. You can use a single control plane to manage registered EdgeMAX devices across multiple networks and sites.
Manage Your Network
Set up multiple DHCP servers to assign IP ranges in different subnets on the different interfaces. Easily control dynamic and static IP addressing for your network devices.
Conveniently track network activity and devices from tools such as Ping, Trace, Discover, Packet Capture, and Log Monitor.
Secure Your Network
Organize the rules you apply in the order you specify.
Apply the policies to groups filtered by IP address, network address, or port number.
The EdgeRouter changes packet addressing based on your customized source and destination NAT rules.
Direct Traffic Flow
Each 10G SFP+ port functions as an independent interface. You can also configure Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) interfaces for network segmentation.
Configure static routes and dynamic routing protocols to effectively manage the routes used by the EdgeRouter.
Intuitive User Interface
The EdgeRouter Infinity 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.
The EdgeRouter Infinity offers robust features, including:
• VLAN interfaces for network segmentation
• Static routes and support of routing protocols: OSPF, RIP, BGP, and MPLS
• 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
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
• CLI access through the following:
- Serial console port
- Graphical user interface
The EdgeRouter Infinity features eight SFP+ ports for fiber connectivity and an RJ45 port for copper connectivity. A serial console port is available for CLI management (also accessible through the browser-based interface).
• (8) 10G SFP+ Ports
• (1) RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Port
• (1) RJ45 Serial Console Port
The EdgeRouter Infinity includes two AC/DC 100 W power supplies. If it detects failure of the primary PSU, then the backup automatically activates to supply uninterrupted power. The AC/DC module is also sold separately as model RPS-AC-100W.
