You think that UniFi switches and EdgeSwitches are a whole world apart? Think again! Did you know your UniFi switch is hiding a dark secret? Underneath it is really close to your EdgeRouter… How close? Find out!

The UniFi team is working hard to bring more advanced features to the UniFi Switch!

In this video I will show you how to access the underlying command set for your UniFi Switch. This isn’t exposed way out in the open so to get into the command set:

SSH into your UniFi Switch
telnet localhost

You’re in!

Take a look around and you’ll notice it looks pretty familiar!

Lab with caution! As always… Your mileage may vary!
