Ubiquiti airMAX 5.8GHz (M5) 30dBi Rocket Dish Antenna

 

Key Features

 

  • Integrated mount for Rocket

  • Long range Ubiquiti links (>4km)

  • Approx. 27dBi real world gain

  • 2x2 MIMO 5.8GHz

  • Designed specifically for airMAX Rocket M5.

 

Usage

 

  • AirMAX RocketDish is a Carrier Class 2x2 Dual Polarity MIMO Antenna that was designed to seamlessly integrate with Rocket M5 radios

  • Pair a Rocket M5 radio with the airMAX RocketDish reach to create an extremely powerful directional PtP link. This type of setup is often deployed in critical communications infrastructure, such as backbone or backhaul links

  • Having an ultra tight V&H beamwidth and high F/B ratio gives this antenna a high degree of noise immunity from nearby hostile interferers and collocated transmitters

  • We regularly deploy RocketDish M5's by Telco as the high bandwidth backbone between two sites, typically out to 15km (rLOS)

  • In shorter range communications smaller form-factor equipment can be deployed, but this can leave the link susceptible to interference and reduced throughput due to link adaptation

  • Another concern is causing channel pollution (observed as a rise in noisefloor at other APs/stations), particularly when the transmitter is tower or rooftop mounted

  • While Ubiquiti spec this antenna at 30dBi, in real world terms open face 0.6m dishes have around 27dBi gain. If your link requires ~30dBi gain antennas please look at the below 0.9m antennas:

  • Ubiquiti RocketDish 34
  • Telco XFIRE 31dBi
