Ubiquiti Networks AF-5 overview

  • 1Description

Operating on the 5 GHz frequency band, the AF-5 airFiber Mid-Band 5 GHz Carrier Class Point-to-Point Gigabit Radio from Ubiquiti Networks offers point to point connectivity at long distances of over 62 miles (100 kilometers). This enhanced coverage provides a reliable backhaul connection which is an essential part of many building-to-building enterprise network configurations. With a dual-antenna architecture, 2x2 MIMO functionality separates the transmit and receive data streams allowing for increased bandwidth and a more reliable connection. Setup of this PtP Gigabit radio is simple thanks to the airFiber Configuration Interface which can be installed by a single network tech. Once installed, 12 dedicated LED indicators make it easy to see the status of various aspects of the network including data port link/activity, data port speed, management port link/activity, and much more.

Radio Alignment Display
  • Radio Alignment Display (RAD) makes aiming quicker and easier
  • Dual, calibrated signal strength indicators display the actual signal strength on the local and remote airFiber radios in real time
  • Displays information about GPS synchronization status, master/slave mode, RF link status, RF overload warning, current modulation mode, and link activity and speed for wired management and data ports
  • Based on Ubiquiti’s airOS
  • Enables quick deployment
  • Sliding-clamp design allows mounting hardware to be pre‑assembled prior to installation
  • Drop‑in cradle mount design allows the installer to attach mounting hardware to the pole without having to support the weight of the airFiber radio during installation

    Ubiquiti Networks AF-5 reviews

    AF-5 airFiber Mid-Band 5 GHz Carrier Class Point-to-Point Gigabit Radio is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended AirFiber 5 We are very pleased with AirFiber 5's performance for its price. We link a Fiber connection to an AirFiber Tower and distribute bandwidth wirelessly to a network of towers. The easy set-up, low latency, affordability, and quick deployment has turned us into a leading service provider. We have a 16.5 mile link providing 200+ Mbps download and 150 Mbps upload! Pros: Inexpensive Back haul solution. Fairly easy set-up with a GUI (Graphical User Interface). It is very similar to setting up an AirOS device. Cons: Requires a firmware update out-of-the-box. Documentation is scarce,. No speed-test built-in which is in contrast to other UBNT products.
    Date published: 2015-10-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - Better Than Expected! The radios were larger than I imagined but posed no issues in configuring. The included mounting hardware was substantial and very accommodating for installation. These were not my original first choice but will be the next time.
    Date published: 2015-08-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Easy to read installation directions and user guide.
