New Connectorised Model
After extensive user feedback about the AF5 model, Ubiquiti has released a connectorised model permitting the attachment of high gain external antennas, permitting substantially higher ranges and higher throughputs. This allows attachment of ultra high gain, high isolation, deep dish, and spatial diverse antenna configurations, bringing the technology in-line with industry leaders. Newly developed for airFiber AF5X, the patent-pending xRT feature uses an innovative, adaptive multi-channel coding scheme to enhance radio transceiver performance, thereby maximizing your link budget and spectrum utilization – while still maintaining regulatory compliance. This results in links that can span distances from as little as 10m to over 100km.
Innovative Proprietary Modem Technology
Ubiquiti’s innovative proprietary modem technology was purpose-built to address the specific challenges of outdoor, PtP (Point-to-Point) bridging and high-performance network backhauls. Every aspect of the radio has been carefully simulated and designed to optimize range, speed, and latency performance in the harshest RF noise environments.
Synchronous Data Transmission and Reception
Conventional wireless standards impose a latency by having to receive a packet before a packet is transmitted. airFiber can transmit data synchronously without any wait time. airFiber features traditional TDD and FDD modes of operation in addition to the proprietary Hybrid Division Duplexing (HDD) mode, which provides a breakthrough in range and spectral efficiency performance. Based on the ranging algorithm built into the air protocol, the airFiber radios use patent-pending HDD technology to calculate the propagation delay and know when each radio can transmit and receive, so they send packets in precise synchronization. Packet transmission latency is virtually eliminated.
