We have started to use the UI Edgerouter X and UNMS for monitoring and being able to CLI back into the device for making certain changes. I was so impressed that I decided to buy 2x managed switches and that's when the love affair ended.

- The ERX will only do a max of 1Gpbs total
- the UI SW8 is a managed switch but there are no instructions or a web UI.
