Product Description

Ubiquiti Networks 5 GHz airMAX ac Bridge with RF Isolated Reflector

Ubiquiti Networks launches the latest generation of airMAX® CPE (Customer Premises Equipment), the PowerBeam® 5AC Gen 2, with dedicated Wi-Fi management.Improved Noise ImmunityThe PowerBeam 5AC Gen 2 directs RF energy in a tighter beamwidth. With the focus in one direction, the PowerBeam 5AC Gen 2 blocks or spatially filters out noise, so noise immunity is improved. This feature is especially important in an area crowded with other RF signals of the same or similar frequency.Integrated DesignUbiquiti's InnerFeed® technology integrates the radio into the feedhorn of an antenna, so there is no need for a cable. This improves performance because it eliminates cable losses.Featuring high performance and innovative design, the PowerBeam 5AC Gen 2 is versatile and cost-effective to deploy.

Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, Ubiquiti's Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) airMAX protocol allows each client to send and receive data using pre-designated time slots scheduled by an intelligent AP controller.This time slot method eliminates hidden node collisions and maximizes airtime efficiency, so airMAX technology provides performance improvements in latency, noise immunity, scalability, and throughput compared to other outdoor systems in its class.Intelligent QoS Priority assigned to voice/video for seamless streaming.Scalability High capacity and scalability.Long Distance Capable of high-speed, carrier-class links.Superior PerformanceThe next-generation airMAX ac technology boosts the advantages of our proprietary TDMA protocol. Ubiquiti's airMAX engine with custom IC dramatically improves TDMA latency and network scalability. The custom silicon provides hardware acceleration capabilities to the airMAX scheduler, to support the high data rates and dense modulation used in airMAX ac technology. Throughput BreakthroughairMAX ac supports high data rates, which require dense modulation: 256QAM - a significant increase from 64QAM, which is used in airMAX. With their use of proprietary airMAX ac technology, airMAX ac products supports up to 450+ Mbps real TCP/IP throughput - up to triple the throughput of standard airMAX products.

Advanced RF AnalyticsairMAX ac devices feature a multi-radio architecture to power a revolutionary RF analytics engine. An independent processor on the PCBA powers a second, dedicated radio, which persistently analyzes the full 5 GHz spectrum and every received symbol to provide you with the most advanced RF analytics in the industry.Real-Time ReportingairOS 8 displays the following RF information: Persistent RF Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) constellation diagrams Signal, Noise, and Interference (SNI) diagrams Carrier to Interference-plus-Noise Ratio (CINR) histogramsSpectral AnalysisairView allows you to identify noise signatures and plan your networks to minimize noise interference. airView performs the following functions: Constantly monitors environmental noise Collects energy data points in real-time spectral views Helps optimize channel selection, network design, and wireless performanceIn airView, there are three spectral views, each of which represents different data: waveform, waterfall, and ambient noise level.airView provides powerful spectrum analyzer functionality, eliminating the need to rent or purchase additional equipment for conducting site surveys.UNMS AppThe PowerBeam 5AC Gen 2 integrates a separate Wi-Fi radio for fast and easy setup using your mobile device.Accessing airOS via Wi-FiThe UNMS app provides instant accessibility to the airOS configuration interface and can be downloaded from the App Store® (iOS) or Google Play (Android). UNMS allows you to set up, configure, and manage the PowerBeam 5AC Gen 2 and offers various configuration options once you're connected or logged in.

Hardware OverviewThe PowerBeam 5AC Gen 2 supports up to 450+ Mbps real TCP/IP throughput and features improved surge protection.Innovative Mechanical Design Built-in mechanical tilt Mounting bracket conveniently offers elevation adjustments: ± 20° tilt. Quick assembly Minimal fasteners simplify installation. Easy removal The antenna feed can be detached with the push of a button.Industrial-Strength Construction Fasteners GEOMET-coated for improved corrosion resistance when compared with zinc-plated fasteners. Dish and brackets Made of galvanized steel that is powder-coated for superior corrosion resistance. The hardware also prevents paint from being removed from the metal brackets for improved corrosion resistance. Optional support In high-wind environments, you can enhance support with additional hardware (not included).PBE-5AC-Gen2The dish reflector design of the PBE-5AC-Gen2 makes it an ideal CPE for deployments requiring maximum performance. A protective radome is available as an optional accessory for the PBE-5AC-Gen2.ModelFrequencyPBE-5AC-Gen2Dish R

PBE-5AC-ISO-Gen2The PBE-5AC-ISO-Gen2 offers a rear housing with a metal-plated interior, designed to enhance RF shielding. Additionally, an included protective radome shields the PowerBeam 5AC ISO Gen 2 from nature's harshest elements. Breakthrough RF IsolationThe integrated isolator design spatially filters out interference, so the PBE-5AC-ISO-Gen2 delivers improved noise immunity in co-location deployments. Compare the two near-field plots below, and note the superior performance of the integrated RF isolator.Both near-field plots are displayed in watts and use a linear scale. The strength of the electromagnetic field is color-coded: Red: Highest strength Green: Medium strength Indigo: Lowest strength
