Ubiquiti Networks PowerBeam AC Gen 2 Overview

  • 1Description

Place the 2.4 GHz High-Performance airMAX ac Bridge from Ubiquiti Networks into the feedhorn of compatible Ubiquiti networks antennas. Once configured, this bridge offers improved noise immunity, as it has the ability to focus the signal in a specific direction while blocking out background noise. Installation is simple, and requires nothing more than a simple wrench to configure. Once installed, this High-Performance airMAX ac Bridge can be tilted ±20° for optimal reception, while the GEOMET-coated fasteners are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions including temperatures ranging from -40 to 158°F to ensure maximum network uptime.

Improved Noise Immunity
The PowerBeam 2AC directs RF energy in a tighter beamwidth. With the focus in one direction, the PowerBeam 2AC 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
Ubiquiti's InnerFeed technology integrates the radio into the feedhorn of an antenna, so there is no need for a cable. This improves performance because it eliminates cable losses. Featuring high performance and innovative design, the PowerBeam 2AC is versatile and cost-effective to deploy.

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 2.4 GHz spectrum and every received symbol to provide you with the most advanced RF analytics in the industry.
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

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.
The PowerBeam 2AC integrates a separate Wi-Fi radio for fast and easy setup using your mobile device.
Accessing airOS via Wi-Fi
The UNMS App provides instant accessibility to the airOS configuration interface and can be downloaded from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android). UNMS allows you to set up, configure, and manage the PowerBeam 2AC 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
The next-generation 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.
Throughput Breakthrough
airMAX ac supports high data rates, which require dense modulation. 256QAM is a significant increase from 64QAM, which is used in airMAX. With the use of proprietary airMAX ac technology, 2.4 GHz airMAX ac products support up to 330+ Mb/s real TCP/IP throughput, which is more than double the throughput of standard airMAX products.
Hardware Overview
Innovative Mechanical Design
Convenient Pole-Mounting: Only a single wrench is needed to mount the PowerBeam 2AC on a pole.
Easy Removal: The antenna feed can be detached with the push of a button.
Built-in Mechanical Tilt: The mounting bracket offers elevation adjustments of up to 20°.
Industrial-Strength Construction
Fasteners: GEOMET-coated for improved corrosion resistance when compared with zinc-plated fasteners.
Dish and Brackets: Made of galvanized steel that is powder-coated for superior corrosion resistance.
Optional Support: In high-wind environments, you can enhance support with additional hardware (not included)
