Ubiquiti Networks continues to disrupt the wireless broadband market with revolutionary technology at breakthrough pricing by introducing airFiber X, a modular airFiber radio system that will serve a wide range of frequencies and is designed to be compatible with a variety of Ubiquiti antennas. Building upon the proven design of the airMAX Rocket system, airFiber X allows you to customize airFiber backhaul links or upgrade existing Rocket PointåäÌÝÌÓtoåäÌÝÌÓPoint (PtP) links. The first airFiber X model is the AFåäÌÝÌÓ5X model for use in the 5 GHz frequency band.
Engineered for Performance
Ubiquiti’s INVICTUS™ custom silicon and proprietary radio architecture are designed specifically for long-distance, outdoor wireless applications.
Airfiber 5X, INVICTUS core communications processing engine surpasses all of the limitations inherent to generic Wi-Fi chips to provide superior performance, long-range capability, DFS flexibility, and power output.
The AF-5X features industryleading 10.6 bps/Hz spectral efficiency, lineåäÌÝÌÓrate data packet processing for up to 500+ Mbps of real data throughput, and innovative xtreme Range Technology (xRT™) for up to 200+ km in range.
Full-Band Certification with DFS
The AF-5X covers the entire, license-free, 5 GHz spectrum and includes DFS approval. Anyone around the world can deploy and operate the AF-5X in the 5 GHz range practically anywhere they choose (subject to local country regulations).
Optimal Operation in Unlicensed Bands
Channel width flexibility (10/20/30/40/50 MHz) allows independent TX and RX channel frequency configurations anywhere within the radio band to avoid local interference, and the channel centers are selectable in 1 MHz increments. You also have the ability to program different uplink and downlink duty cycles to support asymmetric traffic requirements.
Ultra-Low Latency with HDD Technology
The AF-5X is designed to provide the highest TDD throughput available and is engineered with proprietary Hybrid Division Duplexing (HDD) technology. In a backhaul link, two AF-5X radios use patent-pending HDD technology to calculate the propagation delay and know when each radio can transmit and receive, so they send packets in precise synchronization. Packet transmission latency is virtually eliminated.
