Ubiquiti’s first application-specific WISP control point: EdgePoint

EdgePoint combines EdgeMAX routing features with fiber backhaul and versatile powering capabilities.


The EdgePoint offers an innovative combination of robust routing performance, fiber backhaul capability, and the convenience of passive PoE support. Models include the EP-R6, EP-R8 and the EP-S16.


EdgePoint’s Key Features

Weatherproof Enclosure for Outdoor Use

EdgePoint is a single, compact controller that efficiently eliminates clutter, the need for expensive cabinets, extraneous installations and excessive maintenance. Its ruggedized case withstands outdoor conditions, including wind, rain, and snow. The included cable sleeve protects the cables and cable opening. If you prefer, you can swap it out for your own conduit.


Intuitive User Interface

The EdgePoint 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.


Powerful Routing or Switching Features

For the EP-R6 and EP-R8, powerful routing features – such as load balancing and failover– provide redundancy and increased performance for outdoor wireless links. For the EP-S16, layer-2 link aggregation provides similar redundancy and increased performance benefits.


Fiber Backhaul Capability

The EdgePoint features FiberProtect to significantly reduce electrostatic discharge (ESD) failures and electromagnetic interference (EMI), greatly improve data signal integrity, and consolidate the wired data backhaul to a single fiber cable run for long-distance connectivity.


Versatile Power Options

Powered by 54VDC or by PoE, the EP-R8 and EP-S16 can support 54 or 24V passive PoE to power all Ubiquiti® products, including airFiber® and airMAX®. Powered by 24VDC or by PoE, the EP-R6 can support 24V passive PoE to power most Ubiquiti products.
