Installation Requirements

Note: Although the cabling can be located outdoors, the EdgeSwitch itself should be housed inside a protective enclosure.

Hardware Overview

Note: The System LED functionality has been updated with firmware v1.8.0. We recommend that you update the EdgeSwitch to the latest firmware.

Reset Button

There are two methods to reset the EdgeSwitch to factory defaults:

Runtime Reset (Recommended)

The EdgeSwitch should be running after bootup is complete, and the System LED is white. Press and hold the Reset button. The EdgeSwitch will reboot, and the System LED becomes blue after three seconds. Continue to hold the Reset button for about 15 seconds until the System LED flashes blue for two seconds. This indicates that the EdgeSwitch has reset to its factory defaults.

Power-on Reset

  1. Disconnect the power from the EdgeSwitch
  2. While connecting the power to the EdgeSwitch, hold the Reset button for about 15 seconds until the System LED flashes blue for two seconds. This indicates that the EdgeSwitch has reset to its factory defaults.

Console

RJ45 serial console port for Command Line Interface (CLI) management. Use an RJ45-to-DB9, serial console cable, also known as a rollover cable, to connect the Console port to your computer. Then configure the following settings as needed:

  • Baud rate 115200
  • Data bits 8
  • Parity NONE
  • Stop bits 1
  • Flow control NONE

DC Input

The 25VDC input can connect a redundant or stand-alone DC power source (not included) with minimum power: 56W, 25 to 16V, and 2.5 mm DC power inline connector.

Note: You can use the redundant DC power source as a hot spare; if the internal AC/DC power supply no longer provides power, then the EdgeSwitch will switch to the DC power source without interrupting its operation.

Power

Connect the included Power Cord to the Power port.

Accessing the Configuration Interface

The EdgeSwitch is set to DHCP by default, so it will try to automatically obtain an IP address. If that fails, then it will use the default fallback IP address, 192.168.1.2. Proceed to the appropriate section, DHCP or “Fallback IP Address”:

DHCP

Use one of the following methods:

To log in, follow these steps:

  1. Launch your web browser. Type the appropriate IP address in the address field. Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).
  2. Enter ubnt in the Username and Password fields. Click Sign In.

The EdgeSwitch Configuration Interface will appear. Customize additional settings as needed. For more information, refer to the EdgeSwitch documentation, which is available at ui.com/download/edgemax

Fallback IP Address

  1. Ensure that your computer (or other host system) is connected to the EdgeSwitch.
  2. Configure the Ethernet adapter on your host system with a static IP address on the 192.168.1.x subnet.
  3. Launch your web browser. Type the appropriate IP address in the address field (192.168.1.2 is the default fallback IP address). Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).

  4. Enter ubnt in the Username and Password fields. Click Sign In.

  5. The EdgeSwitch Configuration Interface will appear. Click the System Settings tab.

  6. Change the IP Address to a unique IP address. Click Apply.

Note: If you change the IP settings, then the session will be cut off, and you will need to reconnect to the EdgeSwitch using the new IP address.

Customize additional settings as needed. For more information, refer to the EdgeSwitch documentation, which is available at ui.com/download/edgemax
