Hey @LTS_Tom, I wondered how you’ve been finding the Omada gear? I love my Omada WAP, but not yet used their security gateways or switches, and keen to know if they’re any good?
I have a pfsense firewall, but intend to use the Omada line as an affordable alternative for those clients where I just can’t convinced them to go pfsense. My current reservations are :
The inability to (or lack of transparency around) remotely manage switches and gateways without a cloud controller at each site.
The fact they’ve adopted the not-so-great Unifi flaws like not supporting multiple WAN IPs… That’s quite a deal breaker for some of my clients.
However, hopefully TP Link will be more proactive and iron those issues out…? I did email their sales team but had no response…
Really keen to know how you’re getting on with all the gear though!! Was thinking of putting one of their gateways into a Co-Lo data center so we can have a site to site between our client sites and any virtual servers they have. We had a pfsense VM before doing that but it wasn’t without issues… Thinking a hardware firewall might be better in this instance
