airMAX®ac BaseStation

Models: R5AC‑Lite, R5AC‑PTMP, R5AC‑PTP

Available in three models, the Rocket ac features airMAX®ac technology for maximum performance in wireless links. The PtP (Point-to-Point) and PtMP (Point-to-MultiPoint) models also feature airPrism technology to further enhance 5 GHz performance in high-density areas.


Performance Breakthrough

airMAX® ac products offer improved latency, noise immunity, scalability and significantly increased throughput performance.


Superior Processing

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.

Plug and Play Integration

The innovative airMAX® ac antennas feature significant advances in beam and energy isolation performance for increased capacity of airMAX networks.

Advanced Software Technology

Ubiquiti’s airMAX® technology is proven in millions of deployments worldwide, exhibiting outstanding performance in outdoor environments. The TDMA airMAX protocol enables unprecedented scalability, high throughput and low latency in unlicensed, multipoint networks.

An active radio frequency filter provides advanced channel filtering for the noisiest RF environments and is integrated into Ubiquiti's custom silicon.

Improves SNR for High Data Rates

To support high data rates, which requires dense modulation (256QAM), Ubiquiti Networks introduces our patented airPrism®technology. airPrism* creates a high Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) by isolating signals within the operating channel and rejecting interference using specialized circuitry, the High-Selectivity Receiver (HSR).

Removes Adjacent Channel Interference

Innovative airPrism®technology removes up to an additional 30+ dB of adjacent channel interference through the active filtering design. airMAX®APs operating in high-density environments with airPrism technology can achieve up to triple the performance of a typical AP in a high-density environment.

Enhances Co-Location of Access Points

Co-location is vital in many scenarios. For example, a WISP or operator may have limited tower space, so it must co-locate all APs within that allotted footprint. Shielding and other means can lessen noise but may be impractical. By deploying airMAX®APs with airPrism®technology, a WISP or operator can effectively co-locate APs.

Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Technology

Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, airMAX®allows each client to send and receive data using pre-designated timeslots.
airMAX Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Technology

Up to 100 airMAX®stations can be connected to an airMAX base station; four airMAX stations are shown to illustrate the general concept.

A Wireless Channel’s Designated Time Slots

The time slot method eliminates hidden-node collisions and maximizes airtime efficiency. It provides significant performance improvements in latency, throughput and scalability compared to all other outdoor systems in its class.

Packet prioritization - Intelligent QoS

Priority is given to voice/video for seamless streaming.

Hybrid Division Duplex (HDD) – Synchronous Data Transmission and Reception

HDD provides the best of both worlds: latency performance of Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) with the spectral efficiency of Time Division Duplex (TDD).
HDD provides the best of both worlds: latency performance of Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) with the spectral efficiency of Time Division Duplex (TDD).

Conventional wireless standards impose a latency by having to receive a packet before a packet is transmitted. 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, sending packets in precise synchronization. Packet transmission latency is virtually eliminated.
