Getting Started with Ubiquiti 1 Routing and Switching

by Aaron Staines

Tired of continued network issues? Does the thought of maintaining a support contract just for firmware updates make you shake your head? Welcome to Ubiquiti Routing and Switching, where stability and cost are finally obtainable

What you'll learn

Network issues can wreak havoc on your companies production. Causing major headaches for all involved. In this course, Getting Started with Ubiquiti 1 Routing and Switching, you'll gain the ability to securely implement Ubiquiti Routing and Switching equipment, allowing you to squash your networking issues. First, you'll be introduced to the Ubiquiti ToughSwitch, after a firmware upgrade it'll be transformed into the Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch XP. After thorough coverage of the EdgeSwitch XP, you'll be introduced to the Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch. Which closely mirrors the Cisco IOS command line. Next, with the core configuration of the EdgeSwitch complete, you will then be presented with the Ubiquiti EdgeRouter. The Ubiquiti EdgeRouter is similar in syntax to the Juniper JUNOS operating system. With the proper implementation of the Ubiquiti EdgeRouter, you're network performance and reliability will greatly increase! Finally, after you successfully learn the core concepts required to implement the Ubiquiti EdgeRouter, we'll move to configure a management VLAN across the EdgeSwitch XP, and EdgeSwitch switches. With the VLAN's successfully setup, we'll move to sub-interfaces within the EdgeRouter. Lastly, with a successful management VLAN implemented, device management traffic will now be successfully segmented from the production LAN. At the end of this course, you will know how to securely implement various Ubiquiti routing and switching equipment. I hope you'll join me for the exciting world of Ubiquiti Routing and Switching.
