Nice setups everyone. im in the process of building out my home network and working towards a 10g network for no other reason than because i can
And why not, indeed?
Yours looks like a very nice setup. I'll soon be able to get 10Gbps FTTP at home, although that's going to have to wait for a while as it's £600 per month and I have more pressing things I need to spend money on at the moment.
I only have one site with a CloudKey and it's now telling me there's no SD card fitted. It started doing this after the last firmware upgrade. This is likely to be a corruption issue and I won't know until I get physical access again.
I don't think I'm going to bother with the CloudKey in the future, certainly not the first generation. I often have a Raspberry Pi onsite anyway for other functions and it can easily be used as a Unifi controller. To address the SD card corruption issue I've started using ATP aMLC and Transcend SuperMLC industrial SD cards. They're very much more expensive but are less prone to corruption. I'm also using compact USB flash drives in a RAID array for log storage (/dev/md0 below);

This makes it quite economical, resilient and still compact.
The Voice Bridge works well on the two sites I've set one up but home on the back burner I'm building my own VoIP system with Asterisk running on a Raspberry Pi and a dedicated FXS/FXO gateway. This is for a project which will happen when fast
acceptable internet arrives, but it's a late C17 manor in a rural notspot (currently it has flaky ADSL at about 3Mbps) and it's outside the scope of the ongoing county-wide broadband access project at the moment. I do have a solution which involves a point-to-point link (probably Unifi NanoBeam over 4km) but that means getting friendly with someone in the next county where there is good FTTC so they can host a connection and end link.
The walls between adjacent rooms are four feet thick in places and made of granite so wifi and DECT phones are useless. I can get wifi around through the roof spaces with access points above the celing in each 'compartment' and then I can use wifi VoIP phones to access the landline.
