From UI's press release:
"Site Magic allows you to easily inter-connect UniFi Gateways across multiple locations with just a few clicks to create a high-performance and scalable SD-WAN.
Instead of setting up complicated manual site-to-site VPNs and networking between multiple gateways, simply select the gateways you want to connect through the UniFi Portal.
As long as one gateway has a public IP, even gateways behind NAT or on LTE/5G service can participate."
Configuration of this feature is very simple. There are only a few requirements:
- We recommend a UniFi Gateway Console (UDM Pro, UDM SE, UDW, or UDR) as an all-in-one solution to run Site Magic. Full list of options: UDM Pro/UDM SE/UDW running UniFi OS 3.1 or newer. UDR running UniFi OS 3.1 or newer. UDM running UniFi OS 3.1 or newer. UXG Pro running 3.1 or newer paired with a Cloud Key Gen 2, Cloud Key Gen 2 Plus, Cloud Key Enterprise, or Cloud Console running UniFi Network 7.4 or newer.
- At least one gateway must have a public IP address.
- All participating gateways and consoles must have the same owner.
Once you have at least two devices that meet the above requirements, it's as simple as browsing to unifi.ui.com:
Click the highlight Site Magic button on the left hand navigation tab
You will then be presented with an option to select 2 to 5 sites that you'd like to connect via Site Magic. REMEMBER: 1 gateway must have a public IP address.
Finally, you will then be presented with a connection tree where you're able to select which networks will participate in Site Magic.
Overall, we think this is a great feature for businesses that run UniFi networks and want to interconnect without the complexity of configuring multiple VPNs and firewall rules.
