I am exploring the possibility of using our Ubiquiti switch as an external gateway but I'm not sure whether I want a gateway in the cloud, or what kind of gateway exactly, so this is something to be decided later. My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is that you really need to look at the risk profile. Also, I don't think that it is necessarily scalable because I think that I'm on the edge of the limit of what we can use it for. However, there may be something else coming that will assist with this. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would recommend it. It's a good solution. You might need something more reliable. For a small company, it is great. I would rate it a seven out of ten. Stability needs improvement.

We are focused on open software and manufacturer-independent solutions, so Ubiquiti fits our strategy well because they operate on the Linux operating system. We have had no problems where this product did not do what it was supposed to do, either from the hardware side or the software side. This is a solution that I recommend for normal operations. The suitability of these switches depends on what you want to do, what your tasks are, and what the application is. Ubiquiti is not always the manufacturer of choice. If you need really high-speed networks or have special requirements then it is important to test things out in the lab beforehand. I have a lot of experience with different switches that are on the market and my favorite are those by Ubiquiti. They are affordable, they do what they should do, they are open, and you don't have to pay extra for support. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Something people need to look out for is the cost of cloud management. For us, that's been handled externally at the moment, so we're not actually paying for that directly. It's something people should consider with Ubiquiti. I would rate this product an eight out of 10.

We use the on-premises deployment model. I would recommend implementing this solution because it's quite easy. The brand seems to be a bit unknown in the Romanian market because there is not so much advertising for it. Other brands like Cisco or Hubbard are often more common and suggested by local vendors. I'd rate it eight out of ten.

This is a solution that I recommend. It's simple to use, and the installation and configuration are pretty straightforward. Anyone who has a little bit of experience with switches and firewalls could use it. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
