Ubiquiti airMAX RocketDish AC - 31dBi

  • Integrated mount for Rocket
  • 2x2 MIMO 5.8GHz
  • Designed specifically for airMAX Rocket M5
The RocketDish RD-5G31-AC is a 2X2 MIMO dish antenna that was designed to seamlessly integrate with RocketM radios (RocketM sold separately). Pair the RocketM’s radio with the RocketDish antenna’s reach to create the endpoint of a high-performance, Point-to-Point (PtP) backhaul. On the right is one example of how the RocketDish can be deployed. RocketDish M5's are regularly deployed 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 31dBi, in real world terms 0.6m dishes have around 27-28dBi gain. If your link requires ~30dBi gain antennas please look at the below 0.9m antennas:
The Ubiquiti Research and Development team engineered the RocketDish RD-5G31-AC with high isolation and Front-to-Back (F/B) ratio. The main benefit is improved Signal-to-Noise Ratio (S/N or SNR). The improved F/B ratio and lower sidelobes reduce the interference from other transmitters in the area – potentially on the same tower. The improved S/N ratio allows a higher-order modulation to be used, for example, 256QAM rather than 16QAM. This in turn increases the number of bits per second for a fixed bandwidth, which is also known as the data rate.
