Ubiquiti UF-AE UISP UFiber Active Ethernet



The UFiber Active Ethernet is a 1 Gbps fiber-to-copper media converter; it allows ISPs to deliver active fiber to a customer's premises and connect it to affordable SOHO network equipment lacking SFP ports. Its compact design allows the UF-AE to be discreetly integrated into any environment.

Fiber Optic Data Transport Using fiber optic cable for data transport significantly reduces electrostatic discharge (ESD) failures and electromagnetic interference (EMI). .

Data integrity is also sustained in runs beyond 100 meters, the limit of Ethernet over twisted-pair cable. The UF-AE delivers data over long distances at high speed using fiber. The UF-AE provides fiber connectivity to an RJ45 Ethernet device, which in turn provides 802.3af or 24V passive PoE to the UF-AE.

Module Compatibility

  • The versatile UF-AE connects any SFP or SFP+ module at the maximum speed of 1 Gbps. All UFiber SFP or SFP+ modules are supported.

PoE Convenience

  • The UF-AE is powered by 24VDC passive PoE or 802.3af active PoE.

Supported Speeds

  • 1 Gbps fiber uplink speeds and 10/100/1000 Ethernet speeds are supported.

Status LEDs

  • Intuitive LEDs indicate link and speed status.

Indoor Installation

  • Use the included bracket to easily mount the UF-AE on a wall.
