  • Connect two remote locations on the one network

  • Share Internet connection between buildings, remote sites, etc.

  • Up to 200mW output power, 2x2 MIMO operation, 100Mbps

  • Integrated AirOS web software for controlling power, bridge/AP mode, etc.

  • Two units required for wireless bridge

  • Includes POE injector and 240V AC adaptor.


What is a NanoStation LOCO?


  • The Loco is a more cost effective version of the Ubiquiti NanoStation - it is a lower power unit designed for shorter distances

  • There are some features (such as Dual-Ethernet capabilities) that the LOCO version doesn't have, so if in doubt, please read through the specification sheet at the bottom of the page.


High Speed Point-to-Point Networking


  • Forget Ethernet cable, the Ubiquiti NanoStation LOCO is ideal for bridging networks or sharing broadband between buildings

  • To install, place the units at either end of the network and connect both to Ethernet cables - for example, connect the first unit into your modem at location one, and connect the second into an Ethernet switch or WiFi access point at the other location

  • Face both units so they point towards each other and the link is established. Simple!

  • This is a transparent data-link layer bridge, not a routed bridge - this means that you are creating a virtual ethernet cable between the two facilities, making network setup incredibly simple - no routing configuration, all protocols (DHCP, DNS, etc) just work

  • Management of the Ubiquiti device couldn't be easier with SSH and SNMP protocol support, as well as a very intuitive HTTP interface.

Ready to Install


  • This unit has its networking hardware integrated and is completely weatherproof for permanent installation, in even the toughest environments

  • Signal strength indicators allow for quick and easy alignment

  • For best performance, the unit should be roof mounted, high and clear of obstructions, via its integrated pole mounting bracket

  • The units are powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) - simply plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the NanoStation, and the other into the PoE Injector (which is plugged into AC power)

  • This allows one cable to power the unit and also carry network traffic

  • We recommend using Cat6 Outdoor UV Shielded Cable with this unit.


A heads up!


  • Surge protection should be used for all outdoor installations

  • Ubiquiti recommend that you use two Ethernet Surge Protectors - model ETH-SP - place one near the NanoStation and the other at the entry point to the building

  • The ETH-SP will absorb power surges and safely discharge them into the ground.
