Designed for use in point-to-point or point-to-multi-point long-range network configurations, the NanoBeam ac airMAX ac CPE with Dedicated Management Radio from Ubiquiti Networks features a gain of 13 dBi and a power output of 27 dBm. Installation is simple, thanks to the ,Gigabit networking interface and the included pole mount. Once installed, the NanoBeam ac can be managed via the Wi-Fi connection while the four signal-strength LED indicators help alert network admins to the status of the network.

The Ubiquiti Networks NanoBeam ac is compatible with Ubiquiti's own airOS 8 software featuring a plethora of wireless features including selectable channel width, automatic channel selection, transmit power control, and more. Usability enhancements include dynamic configuration changes, instant input validation, detailed device statistics, and more. If that's not enough, network administrators can also take advantage of advanced RF analytics, real-time reporting, and spectral analysis all available through airOS8.

Improved Noise Immunity

The NanoBeam 2AC directs RF energy in a tighter beamwidth. With the focus in one direction, the NanoBeam 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

The radio and antenna are combined to create a more efficient and compact CPE. The NanoBeam 2AC gets maximum gain out of a small footprint. Providing high-performance and an innovative form factor, the NanoBeam 2AC is versatile and cost-effective to deploy.

airOS 8

airOS 8 is the operating system for Ubiquiti airMAX ac products.
Powerful Wireless Features

• airMAX ac Protocol Support
• Long-Range Point-to-Point (PtP) Link Mode
• Selectable Channel Width
• PtP: 10/20/40 MHz
• PtMP: 10/20/40 MHz
• Automatic channel selection
• Transmit Power Control: Automatic/Manual
• Automatic distance selection (ACK Timing)
• Strong WPA2 security
Usability Enhancements
• airMagic channel selection tool
• 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 2.4 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.

UNMS App

The NanoBeam 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 NanoBeam 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
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 - 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 - more than double the throughput of standard airMAX products.

Hardware Overview

The NanoBeam 2AC features airMAX ac technology and a dedicated Wi-Fi radio for management.
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 2AC pivots on its ball joint 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 2AC is small enough to blend discreetly into the background at a customer's location.
• Versatile Mounting - The NanoBeam 2AC can be mounted in almost any position needed for line of sight.

question

I'm a little confused how this works. Does it mount outside with an ethernet connection to the router? Is it powered off LAN, or what do I need to do at the source and destination locations to have usable wifi for devices?
Asked by: Billy G.
Works Great, love the speed. It receives it power over the internet cable (POI). I have the small power brick next to my whole house switch. A small Cat 5 jumper to the brick and then to the Nanobeam I have it mounted on a 10 foot pole on top of my house to get above trees. Thanks to its small size it has very little windage

question

All external factors being optimal, is it technically possible to point this at a hotspot a mile away and connect?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, it will not connect to a hotspot, it needs to target a second dish. With a second dish, it will work great at 1 mile. and If I remember correctly it can function at up to 7 miles apart with good line of sight.

question

I have a barn 150ft. from my house and would like to use these as a wireless bridge. So please someone tell me if I am correct. I take one of them and go from inside my house router to the lan side of the nano lan port and from POE Injector to the POE port on the nano as well. Then inside the barn I can use another router or switch to come off the lan port to the lan port of my nanobeam at the barn and another to the POE Injector in order to power it up. Am I close?
Asked by: Nathan H.
Looks like the previous answers should confirm your question. The only thing I would recommend is use a switch on the barn side. A router is unnecessary. These radios work great. I install video surveillance and we use these often. They have great throughput and work well with IP cameras. Ive used them twice for barn cameras for expecting sheep and goats. Makes it nice to keep an eye on them.
