I'm looking at getting an edgerouter lite and xclaim xi3 AP to upgrade my network for when UFB comes to my street in July. I'm having trouble finding much info on the AP. Seems there's no CLI reference which is a little odd.


Can I run 2 SSIDS, one on my home network vlan with WPA-PSK and one on my lab vlan with 802.1x authentication?

Yes. There is no CLI - they're managed through cloud manager.

I've got a total of 4 SSID's on different VLAN's connected to my Edgerouter on my XI-3 with room for more.

Oh really, that's a shame. I thought there was an SSH interface. Can you please take a look at what 802.1x options there are?

Also, why would I choose the xclaim over a ubiquity AP?

Here are some screenshots of the interface (from my account):

Essentially I think that the Xclaim AP's are a better product than the Ubiquiti - mine is rock solid when it comes to reliability, very good network performance and also has a really good feature set. The Cloudmanager whilst simple does come with a very good array of features for even advanced users and since you don't need an on-site controller (like the Ubiquiti AP's) it just makes it that bit more seamless, firmware updates are installed when your WiFi is not getting used etc. Also, it is made by Ruckus who make some damn good WiFi gear.

 

I've got the Edgerouter Lite too and find performance of both to be excellent.

Awesome, thanks for the screen shots. Seems like a winning combination.
