EdgeFit - Quick Start Guide

EdgeFit

The EdgeFit is a cloud-managed edge platform designed for compact network management. It offers advanced SDWAN, Security, QoS, and LAN services, equipped with a powerful user interface for real-time metering and analytics. The device supports combining and controlling multiple WAN sources with advanced routing and bandwidth bonding. It also ensures network integrity with deep packet inspection (DPI), traffic policies, and VPN features. The EdgeFit is compact and fanless, supporting up to 5 WAN sources and configurable for up to 500 clients and 30 VLAN networks.

Physical Design

Open the EdgeFit Box. The Primary components are as follows:

  1. EdgeFit network appliance

Power Specification

Power

+12VDC (30W Max); 100-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz (AC/DC Power Supply Included)

Initialization

  1. Connect DC Power to the EdgeFit appliance. Use a battery backup Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) for deployments with intermittent or unreliable power.

  2. The system will power up and be online in a few minutes.

Web Portal Configuration for Management

  • (Option 1) Connect Laptop Ethernet interface to EdgeFit LAN Ethernet Port [Right-most port], configure laptop interface to “obtain IP address automatically” (DHCP).

    • Laptop IP address should be assigned from the 192.168.230.0/24 network space.

  • (Option 2) Connect Laptop via USB Ethernet Dongle to EdgeFit USB MGMT Port [Left-most USB port], configure laptop interface to “obtain IP address automatically” (DHCP).

    • Laptop IP address should be assigned within the 10.255.240.0/28 network space.

  • Open Web Browser on Laptop. Enter in the URL: http://10.0.254.1 (or the gateway (GW) IP address) and return.

  • The EdgeOS Web Portal login page appears. A valid IAM account and password combination may be used if the Network Appliance is online. With a new system, use the temporary login credentials: edge/edge.

  • Portal Dashboard will appear on the “Configuration Wizard” home page. Click on the Menu “3 dots” Icon Upper Right.

    • Internet link status - “Internet (WAN) Status”

    • Internet Performance - “Performance Charts”

    • Device Usage – “Usage Status”

    • Update Configuration - “Configuration Wizard”

Figure 4 Edge Fit Menu

Note: By default, the EdgeFit menu will not show ‘Cellular Controller’ option. It will be shown in the menu only when a Peplink 5G or Ascent Modem is configured as a WAN source. The same is true for VSAT Controller, but currently EdgeFit has the main WAN port configured for Starlink. Therefore, the menu shows VSAT Controller option.

Troubleshooting

  1. DC Power to EdgeFit must be stable, a battery backup Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) required for on vessel operation. Intermittent (momentary on/off) power will move the device to a safe power mode (off) lockout. Power cycle the unit for at least 5 seconds before powering back on.
