"Our airFiber link survived Hurricane Sandy and remained operational except for a power outage. Wired operators were down for weeks."

New airFiber5

Two airFiber models are available for 5 GHz. The model, AF5, features the popular mid-band frequencies, which are freely used in many parts of the world.

The high-band model, AF5U, can use the less congested, 5.9 and 6 GHz bands (as permitted by local country regulations) and has robust filtering to enable co-location with devices operating in the lower 5 GHz bands.

Advanced Antenna System

Featuring a dual-independent 2x2 MIMO 24GHz hi-gain reflector antenna system, airFiber can operate in both FDD (Frequency Division Duplex) and HDD (Hybrid Division Duplex) modes for unparalleled speed and spectral efficiency in the 24GHz worldwide license-free band.

Built for Speed and Range

Operating in the 5GHz band, airFiber 5 builds on the innovations in airFiber 24 to enable speeds up to 1Gbps and introduces new eXtended Range Technology (xRT) to provide 100+Km maximum range.

Loaded with Powerful Features

airOS F is an intuitive, versatile, highly developed Ubiquiti firmware technology that resides on airFiber. It is exceptionally intuitive and was designed to require no training to operate. Behind the user interface is a powerful firmware architecture which enables hi-performance network backhauls.

airOS F Integrated Technologies

airFiber’s purpose-built hardware provides superior wireless performance, higher capacity, and lower latency.
Unlike standard WiFi protocols, Ubiquiti airFiber’s Hybrid Division Duplex (HDD) provides the best of both worlds — latency performance of Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) with the spectral efficiency of Time Division Duplex (TDD).
