  • Ubiquiti Networks has designed the first airMAX® ac radios with high performance and ease of installation in mind

  • You have the freedom to deploy the Rocket™ ac anywhere in the world, and it allows for a high degree of flexibility in configuring channel bandwidths (subject to local country regulations)

  • To enhance airMAX ac performance, Ubiquiti Networks introduces our patented airPrism technology, which is featured on the Rocket5ac Prism, model R5AC-PRISM.



Improves SNR


  • High data rates require a high Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), which is challenging to achieve, especially in noisy, high-density areas

  • Integrated into Ubiquiti’s custom silicon, airPrism technology creates a high SNR by isolating signals within the operating channel and rejecting interference using specialised circuitry, the High-Selectivity Receiver (HSR).


Reduces Interference


  • Depending on the operating mode, available channel widths may include 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and/or 80 MHz. Theoretically APs operate on different channels; however, because of the wider channel bandwidths, there can be overlap in spectrum usage

  • airPrism technology removes up to an additional 30+ dB of adjacent channel interference through the active filtering design, so an airMAX ac AP with airPrism technology can provide significantly greater performance than a typical AP.


Facilitates AP Co-Location

  • Co-location is vital in many scenarios. For example, a WISP may have limited tower space, so it must co-locate all APs within that allotted footprint. Shielding and other means can lessen interference but may be impractical

  • By deploying airMAX ac APs with airPrism technology, you can co-locate APs and enhance the overall performance of your wireless network. Number of APs: 4 = 80 MHz Channel Width 8 = 40 MHz Channel Width 16 = 20 MHz Channel Width


High Speed Network Sharing


  • 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

  • The units are powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) - simply plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the Rocket, 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.
