airFiber 5, a truly revolutionary Point-to-Point wireless platform from Ubiquiti Networks. Housed in a compact, highly efficient form factor, airFiber 5 delivers amazing wireless gigabit+ performance, low latency, and long range. airFiber 5 ushers in a new era in price-disruptive wireless technology ideal for carrier backhaul, building-to-building enterprise use, or public safety applications.
Designed for Freedom
The airFiber “AF-5U” operates in the upper part of the worldwide 5 GHz frequencies but also as high as 6200 MHz. Subject to local regulations (and usually having to obtain a low cost licence), anyone around the world can purchase and operate airFiber 5U in either the upper 5GHz band or ‘6L’ 6GHz bands. For UK purchasers – check with Ofcom for more details.
Built for Speed and Range
airFiber 5 delivers gigabit performance at 1.0+ Gbps. To put this in perspective, airFiber 5 can transmit a 100 MB file in less than a second. Rivalling common broadband providers, airFiber 5 download speed is up to 100x faster. With speed and throughput surpassing conventional wired backhauls, airFiber 5 prevails over expensive and labour-intensive wired infrastructures.
airFiber 5 is built for long-range use: up to 100+ km which launches the innovative xtreme Range Technology (xRT) feature. airFiber 5 backhauls do not share the security risks associated with wired backhauls. The long distances of wired backhauls are vulnerable to copper theft, fiber optic damage, vandalism, and accidental breakage. With airFiber 5, only the installation points of the airFiber 5 links need to be secured.
There are two airFiber 5 models available for the 5 GHz spectrum. The AF5 model features the popular mid-band frequencies, which are freely used in many parts of the world. This high-band model AF5U operates in the 5.7-6.2 GHz bands, has robust filtering to enable co-location with devices operating in the lower 5 GHz bands while allowing operation at a higher output power in many areas of the world.
