Ubiquiti Networks AC Gen2 overview

  • 1Description

With tighter beamwidth, the NBE-5AC-GEN2 NanoBeam ac Gen2 airMAX ac CPE with Dedicated Management Radio from Ubiquiti Networks offers a more reliable long-distance point-to-point connection. This NanoBeam radio is designed to filter out noise to reduce interference in areas congested with multiple RF signals while offering up to 19 dBi gain. Setup is simple, as the NanoBeam can be mounted to a pole (kit-included) or to the wall and aligned using its own 3-axis mount to ensure it is level.

Improved Noise Immunity
The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 directs RF energy in a tighter beamwidth. With the focus in one direction, the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 blocks or spatially filters out noise, so noise immunity is improved. This feature is especially important in an area crowded with other RF signals of the same or similar frequency.
Integrated Design
The radio and antenna are combined to create a more efficient and compact CPE. The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 gets maximum gain out of a small footprint.
airOS 8 Software
Powerful Wireless Features
• Access Point PtMP airMAX Mixed Mode
• airMAX ac Protocol Support
• Long-Range Point-to-Point (PtP) Link Mode
• Selectable Channel Width
• PtP: 10/20/30/40/50/60/80 MHz
• PtMP: 10/20/30/40 MHz
• Automatic Channel Selection
• Transmit Power Control: Automatic/Manual
• Automatic Distance Selection (ACK Timing)
• Strongest WPA2 Security
Usability Enhancements
• airMagic Channel Selection Tool
• Redesigned User Interface
• Dynamic Configuration Changes
• Instant Input Validation
• HTML5 Technology
• Optimization for Mobile Devices
• Detailed Device Statistics
• Comprehensive Array of Diagnostic Tools, including RF Diagnostics and airView Spectrum Analyzer
Advanced RF Analytics
airMAX ac devices feature a multi-radio architecture to power an RF analytics engine. An independent processor on the PCBA powers a second, dedicated radio, which persistently analyzes the full 5 GHz spectrum and every received symbol to provide you with advanced RF analytics.
Real-Time Reporting
airOS 8 displays the following RF information:
• Persistent RF Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) constellation diagrams
• Signal, Noise, and Interference (SNI) diagrams
• Carrier to Interference-plus-Noise Ratio (CINR) histograms
Spectral Analysis
airView allows you to identify noise signatures and plan your networks to minimize noise interference. airView performs the following functions:
• Constantly monitors environmental noise
• Collects energy data points in real-time spectral views
• 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. In airView, there are three spectral views, each of which represents different data: waveform, waterfall, and ambient noise level.
airView provides powerful spectrum analyzer functionality, eliminating the need to rent or purchase additional equipment for conducting site surveys.
UMobile App
The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 integrates a separate Wi-Fi radio for fast and easy setup using your mobile device.
Accessing airOS via Wi-Fi
The UMobile App provides instant accessibility to the airOS configuration interface and can be downloaded from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android). UMobile allows you to set up, configure, and manage the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 and offers various configuration options once you're connected or logged in.
airMAX ac Technology
Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, 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. This time slot method eliminates hidden node collisions and maximizes airtime efficiency, so airMAX technology provides performance improvements in latency, noise immunity, scalability, and throughput compared to other outdoor systems in its class.
Intelligent QoS - Priority assigned to voice/video for seamless streaming.
Scalability - High capacity and scalability.
Long Distance - Capable of high-speed, carrier-class links.
Enhanced Performance
airMAX ac technology boosts the advantages of the proprietary TDMA protocol. 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.
Improved Throughput
airMAX ac supports high data rates, which require dense modulation: 256QAM - a significant increase from 64QAM, which is used in airMAX. With their use of proprietary airMAX ac technology, airMAX ac products support up to 450+ Mbps real TCP/IP throughput - up to triple the throughput of standard airMAX products.
Hardware
Ease of Installation
Quick Installation - No fasteners are required for pole-mounting, and a single wall fastener (not included) is required for wall-mounting.
Convenient Alignment - The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 pivots on its ball joint 3-axis mount for easy aiming.

Innovative Mechanical Design
Efficient Footprint - The radio and antenna are combined into a single body that takes up minimal space. The form factor features the highest gain for its size.
Aesthetics - The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 is small enough to blend discreetly into the background at a customer's location.
Versatile Mounting - The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 can be mounted in almost any position needed for line of sight.

    Ubiquiti Networks AC Gen2 reviews

    NBE-5AC-GEN2 NanoBeam ac Gen2 airMAX ac CPE with Dedicated Management Radio is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Only Great and impressive size, about the size of a Cisco BR1310 Bridge. Much lighter and easier to install. Recently replaced our EOL Cisco BR1310 Bridges with these and although there's the price difference albeit much older hardware, the BR1310s I replaced had a stronger signal and faster throughput speeds. I currently have these at 1.5 miles and 3.4 miles. I have a few more BR1310s to replace with these NanoBeams and I'm hesitant to install more of these Nanobeams.
