Ubiquiti NanoStation NSM5 (5.8GHz) Wireless Bridge & WiFi AP


Key Features


  • Connect two remote locations on the one network

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

  • Up to 600mW output power, 2x2 MIMO operation, 150Mbps

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

  • Two units required for wireless bridge

  • Includes POE injector and 240V AC adaptor.


High Speed Point-to-Point Networking


  • Forget Ethernet cable, the Ubiquiti NanoStation is ideal for bridging networks or sharing broadband across a distance

  • 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

  • Up to 6 remote buildings can be linked over one connection with the NanoBridge supporting AP-WDS.

  • 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 Ubquiti 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 all 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 both 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.
