Ubiquiti airFiber 5GHz 1Gbps Wireless Radio




Key Features


  • Class-licensed 5.8GHz ISM band (unlicensed-band)

  • Up to 1Gbps aggregate throughput (500Mbps full duplex)

  • 1/4QPSK to 256QAM adaptive modulation

  • >500Mbps under 15km

  • 50VDC GigE PoE injector & Australian 240VAC power cord included.


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 optimise range, speed, and latency performance in the harshest RF noise environments.




  • Due to the very small antenna size, airFiber 5 units should only be used for short range links

  • Maximum recommended distance for AF5 units is around 10km, Telco engineers will not install these units outside 5km

  • For high capacity 5GHz links in excess of 5-10km please use the AFX with XFIRE dishes.


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.
