Ubiquiti Networks NBE-5AC-19-US overview

  • 1Description

The NBE-5AC-19 NanoBeam ac High-Performance airMAX Bridge from Ubiquiti Networks directs RF energy in a tight beamwidth. It maximizes and improves noise immunity by its uniform bandwidth and also blocks or spatially filters out noise. This feature helps in areas crowded with other RF signals of the same or similar frequency.

The Nanobeam ac combines the radio and antenna in an efficient and compact unit that gets maximum gain out of the smallest footprint. It features an innovative mechanical design and high speed processor for optimal performance at low cost.

Software

airOS
Designed for improved usability and airOS v7 is the enhanced operating system for Ubiquiti airMAX ac. It supports airMAX ac protocol and long-range Point-to-Point (PtP) link mode. This offers selectable channel width such as 10/20/30/40/50/60/80 MHz in PtP and 10/20/30/40 MHz in PtMP. Additionally, this NanoBeam ac features automatic channel selection, automatic/manual transmit power control, automatic distance selection (ACK timing), and WPA2 security.
Usability Enhancements
It offers dynamic configuration changes, instant input validation, HTML5 technology, optimization for mobile devices, detailed device statistics, comprehensive array of diagnostic tools, including Ethernet cabling test, RF diagnostics, and airView spectrum analyzer.
Advanced RF Analytics
airMAX ac devices feature a multi-radio architecture to power an enhanced RF analytics engine. An independent processor on the PCBA powers a second dedicated radio, which analyzes the full 5 GHz spectrum and every received symbol to provide advanced RF analytics. Data from the spectrum analysis and RF performance monitoring is displayed on the main tab and airView Spectrum analyzer of airOS V7.
Real-Time Reporting
The main tab displays the RF information such as persistent RF Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) constellation diagrams, Carrier to Interference-plus-Noise Ratio (CINR) histograms, and Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) time series plots.
Spectral Analysis
airView allows you to identify noise signatures and plan your networks to minimize noise interference. It constantly monitors environmental noise, collects energy data points in real-time spectral views, and helps optimize channel selection, network design, and wireless performance. airView runs in the background without disabling the wireless link, so there is no disruption to the network.

There are three spectral views, each of which represents different data. Waterfall offers aggregate energy collected for each frequency, Waveform offers aggregate energy collected, and ambient noise level background offers noise energy as a function of frequency. This provides powerful spectrum analyzer functionality, eliminating the need to rent or purchase additional equipment for conducting site surveys.
airMAX Technology
airMAX Technology 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. Thק 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.
Intelligent QoS: Priority is given to voice/video for seamless streaming.
Scalability: High capacity and scalability.
Long Distance: Capable of high-speed, carrier-class links.
Performance
The next-generation airMAX ac technology boosts the advantages of your proprietary TDMA protocol. Ubiquiti's airMAX engine with custom IC 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 Breakthrough
airMAX ac supports high data rates, which require modulation of 256QAM that significantly increase from 64QAM, which is used in airMAX. With its use of proprietary technology, airMAX ac supports up to 450+ Mb/s real TCP/IP throughput (triple the throughput of standard airMAX products).

    Ubiquiti Networks NBE-5AC-19-US reviews

    NBE-5AC-19 NanoBeam ac High-Performance airMAX Bridge is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from At 2.5 miles, so far so good. First let me explain my application and set up. I am using two Nanobeam 5AC-19 devices to create a wireless bridge from my sister's house, who has a 100 Mbps up and down internet service, 2.5 miles to our parents house out of town where there is essentially no reliable broadband service available. My sister's house happens to be at a higher elevation than much of the town which was helpful. My parents' house is in a remote area with very little in the way to obstruct the signal. Only issue with line of sight was a large church tying directly between the two structures. At first this prevent the connection , but after mounting the AP at my sisters home a little higher, we were able to clear the church and get a link. so for those thinking of using these to make a link over a distance of a few miles, line of sight becomes much more necessary. As far as the set-up of the two devices, I used two videos (Setting a Static IP to Connect to Ubiquiti Devices - Windows, and airMax - airOS - 7 Point-to-Point Bridge Walkthrough) found on Ubiquiti's support video page to figure out what I needed to do to link the devices. After setting them up at home, I took the devices and mounted them at each location running Cat 5e cable from the device to the PoE port on the included power injector, and then running a cable from the LAN port on the PoE adapter to an open LAN port on the router of the location with the internet connection to be shared, and from the LAN port on the PoE adapter to the WAN port of the router at my parents' home. After fixing the issue of the building obstructing the connection, everything came on and was ready to go. Concerning performance, I was only able to do a quick speedtest on my phone over wireless after finishing the set-up, so I have not actually logged into airOS to check the actual throughput yet. I plan on doing it soon and tweaking the output to maximize the throughput. But, over my parents' old wireless G class router, I was able to pull a 9+Mbps downlink and 6+ uplink which is about 10X better then what they had. I'm sure that the connection is faster than but being limited by the routers wireless capabilities. Also I dropped the frequency range down to 20Mhz to ensure I was getting a link over the distance, so I may still be able to bump that up and get better throughput that way as well. Latency was about 3ms. Really impressive. After I am able to get back out and do some more checking and tweaking, I will update with what the actual results are, however, even without it I was impressed by the connection and the ease of use for the devices. Will definitely order again for a similar project.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and fast A friend and I have places about a mile apart. It was Christmas and the AC gear was finally in stock someplace so we picked up a pair. The admin interface is easy to use and it is clear what you need to do. We got everything set up and aligned in about an hour. Getting 300mbps with the power turned down to 5dbm. Works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer product I installed 6 of these bridges recently as my first experience using Ubiquiti products. Overall, I'm blown away with the performance and the features. Setup was reasonably easy, and the signal performance is better than I was expecting. The longest link was about 1.2 miles, link speed is about 350mbps and Ping is only 1.5-2ms. The mounting bracket is also very clever and easy to install/adjust. The only negatives of note, the cable test function in firmware version 7.1.4 doesn't seem to be accurate. Fails almost every cable, and running the test multiple times will yield different results. Also, it would be nice if a means to wall mount the power injectors was included rather than sold separately. These minor faults are far outweighed by the value and performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3x faster then the NanoBridges!! I'm using the NanoBeam AC to replace my old 5ghz Nano Stations NSM5's. The NSM5's would max out around 80Mb/s in real world testing in one direction. The NanoBeam AC's are pushing speeds around 240Mb/s in one direction. These NanoBeam AC's are a game changer if you need fast cheap long range wireless bridge. (Keep in mind you need two NanoBeams's to make a bridge)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent equipment, prompt delivery The equipment was delivered very quickly, as it usually is when I purchase from B&H. Once it arrived, the setup was incredibly easy. I work within a heavy VLAN environment, and this product had absolutely no issues with my network configuration. As with any Ubiquiti radio hardware, it worked exactly as advertised, with precisely the throughput stated. There is one thing that I would like to point out to anyone that is not already aware, however. This radio is a half duplex system, so keep that in mind when looking at the 450+ Mbps. Basically, in a very bare bones explanation, you will get approximately 225 Mbps down, and 225 Mbps up. There is a lot more to it, but just keep in mind that you will likely not get a full 450+ Mbps in one direction. I absolutely recomend this product, or any product from Ubiquiti. I also recommend any purchase through B&H, as they are a very professional company, and incredibly prompt.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solution making devices These Nanobeams (NBE-5AC-19) are not big in size, but very big in terms of expanding networks, internet access, anything IP related. I installed 10 of them in one municipality of New Jersey already, more are on the way. The reasons are different: enable the Wi-Fi internet access in community center building (which does not have a formal street address, therefore no ISP can proceed), access to surveillance systems in multiple objects (water pump station, firehouses), etc. It is very easy to setup, U don't have to be an engineer. The wireless bridge based on these devices is clearly faster than wired fast ethernet connection, more, it is definitely faster than nowadays Internet connections (tried it on Verizon FIOS, Comcast and Cablevision).I'm very happy with user interface and toolkit through it - it makes the installation even easier. Talking about the creator of the product: I can't find words to express my highest opinion about UBNT. Perhaps, Ubiquity networks are up to run Cisco out of business with their pricing policies. I have experience with many products of UBNT: edgerouters&switches, UniFi APs&switches, now airMax products: there is one phrase: Solution making devices.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product, easy to install, great performance Extending an ethernet connection just over the 100 wired limit. This bridge was really easy to install and configure (assuming some knowledge of networking) and performs better than the wired cable did. Handles a trunked vLAN circuit easily. This newer generation works even better than the last one. All for a remarkable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Performance and Range. We use these devices along with AC antennas in the field to communicate with our end-of-line equipment for power distribution. At over five miles we have a Nanobeam that links at over 40Mbps. We have another device that links at over 50 Mbps at a distance of 3 miles and is not line of sight. The management interface (using the new beta firmware) is very easy to configure and gives you an amazing amount of information. Great product!
