Unifi Security Gateway

I have a home business (software) and am doing a network upgrade. I have decided to go with Ubiquity equipment. Is there any reason the Unifi Security Gateway would not work or be a bad decision to replace the Vodafone supplied router to connect to the fibre?

Hi

 

If you have VOIP service the credentials will have to stay with Vodafone Router. This is for security reasons as the Numbers belongs to Vodafone so the credentials will be managed by Vodafone.

 

You also need to have 802.11q support for your devices.

 

The SIP credentials will not be passed down.

The device does support VLAN tagging (802.11q) and we are not using any VOIP services.

Sounds like you are saying this will work.

Thank you for your help. I have now obtained this device but so far I have not got it connected.

I have used VLAN 10

Do I need to set static IP or will DHCP work?

While I can see the IP, gateway and DNS settings in the VF device I cant see the subnet mask?

That is pretty poor, Vodafone is pretty much the only ISP who will not give out the SIP password. Unfair because the customer is paying for VoIP and does not have the ability to choose their own softphone.

Simple answer is port to another provider for the VOIP, just because you use VF for internet you don't have to use them for VOIP
