With support for simultaneous 5 GHz tri-band 4x4 multi-user MIMO connectivity, the Quad-Radio 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Point with Dedicated Security & Beamforming Antenna from Ubiquiti Networks is designed for deployments in which a large number of users, up to 1500 clients, will be accessing the network such as stadiums, concert venues, and more.
This access point supports the 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi standard and operates on the 5 GHz frequency supporting wireless data transfer rates of up to 1733 Mb/s. The 5 GHz frequency supports three bands of 4x4 MIMO connectivity providing multiple pathways from which clients can access the wireless connection to reduce bottlenecks and provide optimal network performance. Setting up the UWB-XG access point has been greatly simplified, as it comes equipped with a single Gigabit Ethernet port and a single 10 GbE port with support for the 802.3bt PoE standard, eliminating the need to run a dedicated power supply to the device.
Once installed, this Ubiquiti Networks access point offers numerous management features allowing you to control nearly every aspect of your network. The UniFi Controller software suite features multi-site management capabilities, detailed analytics, wireless uplink functionality, and much more. In addition to network management, this access point is also designed to mitigate security risks, as it continuously monitors the network for malicious activity as well as determines the best channels to use for enhanced network performance.
Intuitive UniFi Controller Software
Save Money and Save Time
View Your RF Environment
Use the RF environment functionality of the UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG to detect and troubleshoot nearby interference, analyze radio frequencies, choose optimal AP placement, and configure settings.
Powerful RF Performance Features

Wireless Uplink functionality enables wireless connectivity between APs for extended range. One wired UniFi AP uplink supports up to four wireless downlinks on a single operating band, allowing wireless adoption of devices in their default state and real-time changes to network topology.
A single UniFi Controller running in the cloud can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed deployments and multi-tenancy for managed service providers. Each site is logically separated and has its own configuration, maps, statistics, guest portal, and administrator accounts.
Guest Portal/Hotspot Support
Easy customization and options for Guest Portals include authentication, Hotspot setup, and the ability to use your own external portal server. Use UniFi's rate limiting for your Guest Portal/Hotspot package offerings. Apply different bandwidth rates (download/upload), limit total data usage, and limit duration of use.
All UniFi APs include Hotspot functionality:
• Built-in support for billing integration using major credit cards
• Built-in support for voucher-based authentication
• Built-in Hotspot Manager for voucher creation, guest management, and payment refunds
• Full customization and branding of Hotspot portal pages
UniFi Mobile App
802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology allows a Wave 2 AP, such as the UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG, to communicate with multiple clients at the same time, significantly increasing multi-user throughput and overall user experience.
Assuming the same conditions, a Wave 2 radio provides up to 75% improvement beyond a Wave 1 radio. This improvement increases wireless performance and/or serves more clients at the same performance level.
4x4 Spatial Streams
At any single time, a Wave 2 radio can communicate with the following MU-MIMO clients:
• four 1x1 clients
• two 2x2 clients
• one 2x2 client and two 1x1 clients
• one 3x3 client and one 1x1 client
Combining three times the number of 5 GHz radios and four times the associations per radio, the UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG delivers an order of magnitude more performance than a typical 802.11ac Wave 1 AP.
For optimal performance, use MU‑MIMO clients. SU‑MIMO clients will also benefit and gain up to 10-20% greater performance when used with the UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG.
Wave 1 and Wave 2 APs offer 28 independent (non-overlapping) channels: three for the 2.4 GHz band and twenty‑five for 5 GHz, including DFS channels.
When you use the 2.4 GHz band in a high-density location, you encounter self-interference and channel saturation. When you use the 5 GHz band, you can deploy smaller cells (coverage areas), so you can support more clients in any cell that deploys more than one AP.
With the advantages of MU-MIMO technology and 4x4 spatial streams, the UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG can support more than triple the number of users per radio than a typical Wave 1 AP.
Dedicated Spectral Security Radio
Using a persistent spectral scan, the UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG constantly monitors the RF environment to check for both potential malicious activity and the best channel for network performance.
The dedicated security radio allows the UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG to scan for security threats, such as malicious frames and rogue access points, while maintaining throughput for client devices. At the same time, UniFi, in conjunction with the UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG, analyzes and displays the wireless spectrum and airtime utilization to allow the network admin to have unprecedented real-time visibility into the spectral and protocol usage in the network.
The UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG's dedicated security radio provides persistent threat management to act as a Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) and Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS). Such a dedicated radio affords frequency agility, meaning all available Wi-Fi channels are monitored constantly for threats, not just the channels the AP is using.
Spectrum and Wi-Fi Packet Analysis
The airView tool offers real-time visibility into your RF spectrum. Because it uses the dedicated security radio, it analyzes all of your available RF channels without affecting performance or disrupting client activity. The airTime tool visualizes and analyzes how the APs use channels in real time. The breakdown is by frame type, clients, neighboring APs, protocols, and interference. Spectrum view and Wi-Fi packet analysis can be done simultaneously, without affecting stations, for a total view of the RF environment and channel utilization
Three client radios deliver unparalleled Wi-Fi performance while a dedicated security radio provides persistent threat management.
Superior Capacity for Large Crowds
Featuring low‑latency QoS (Quality of Service), the UniFi Stadium XG AP supports up to 1500 clients with 12 MU‑MIMO chains (500 clients with 4 MU-MIMO chains per client radio).
Enhanced Processing Power
The UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG is capable of complex operations (guest control, filtering, and other resource-intensive tasks) that may slow down a lesser-equipped AP.
10G and 1G Ethernet Connectivity
Designed to be a 10G Ethernet backhaul, the primary port carries both data and PoE, while the secondary Gigabit Ethernet port is for bridging and also supports PoE input.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) Standard
The UniFi Wi-Fi BaseStation XG can be powered by an 802.3bt PoE compliant switch.
