Detailed description

High-gain 60 GHz radio with a Cassegrain reflector that delivers 1.5+ Gbps throughput with low latency and 1.5+ km link range

The airMAX GigaBeam Plus is specifically designed to cater to the high-demand requirements of modern network infrastructures, offering an unparalleled wireless connectivity solution. The GigaBeam Plus operates primarily in the 60 GHz frequency band, with a 5 GHz radio included as a failover, to ensure consistent and reliable high-speed connections even under adverse weather conditions that might impact the primary frequency's performance. In the context of the GigaBeam Plus, the Cassegrain reflector contributes to the device's ability to maintain high-throughput connections over extended distances, essential for the gigabit-plus speeds it promises.
Features:
  • Low-Interference 60 GHz Spectrum
  • 35 dBi Antenna Gain with Integrated Reflector
  • 1.5+ Gbps Bidirectional Throughput with Low Latency
  • Long Range, up to 1.5 km
  • link.ui.com Planning Support
  • Quick Setup Using the UISP App via Bluetooth
Crafted for efficiency and performance, the GigaBeam Plus leverages the distinct advantages of the 60 GHz band to minimize interference from crowded spectrum in lower frequency ranges. This capability is critical in dense urban environments or in areas where the wireless spectrum is heavily utilized, allowing for clearer transmission channels and enhanced network reliability. The device boasts an impressive throughput, capable of delivering gigabit-plus speeds, which is essential for supporting bandwidth-intensive applications such as HD video streaming, voluminous data transfers, and high-speed internet access across substantial distances.
At the core of its design, the GigaBeam Plus features a high-gain directional antenna that focuses the wireless signal into a tight beam. This focused transmission not only increases the reach and reliability of the connection but also significantly reduces interference from other sources, ensuring that the signal integrity is maintained over longer distances. The incorporation of Ubiquiti's proprietary airMAX technology further enhances the device's performance by optimizing the transmission schedules through Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) protocol, which effectively reduces latency and increases the efficiency of data transmission.
The physical construction of the GigaBeam Plus is built to endure the rigors of outdoor deployment. Encased in a durable, weather-resistant housing, the device is designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions, from intense heat to freezing temperatures, ensuring operational reliability regardless of the setting. This rugged exterior, combined with the device's compact form factor, makes it an ideal choice for deployment in a variety of locations, from rooftops to communication towers, without being obtrusive.
For connectivity, the GigaBeam Plus is equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet port that supports Power over Ethernet (PoE). This feature simplifies the installation process by allowing both power and data to be transmitted over a single cable, reducing clutter and easing the deployment process, especially in areas where power sources are limited or difficult to access. The inclusion of a secondary 5 GHz radio ensures that the device can automatically switch frequencies to maintain connectivity, should the 60 GHz link be temporarily affected by atmospheric conditions.
Management and configuration of the GigaBeam Plus are facilitated through Ubiquiti's intuitive airOS interface, which provides users with a comprehensive suite of tools for device setup, network management, and performance optimization. This user-friendly platform allows for precise alignment aids, real-time analytics, and detailed adjustment of operational parameters, enabling network administrators to tailor the device's performance to meet specific network requirements.

Application scenarios

The airMAX GigaBeam Plus, characterized by its model number GBE-Plus, plays a pivotal role in scenarios demanding high-speed internet access across challenging terrains or in areas lacking traditional infrastructure. For instance, in rural or remote communities where laying fiber-optic cables is not viable due to geographical obstacles or cost constraints, the GigaBeam Plus can serve as the backbone of a wireless network infrastructure. This setup can connect local internet distribution points, such as a community center or a school, to a distant ISP’s network access point, thereby bringing broadband connectivity to underserved areas. The high throughput capabilities of the GigaBeam Plus ensure that educational facilities can access online learning resources, telehealth services can be implemented, and local businesses can engage in digital marketplaces, thus fostering social and economic development in remote regions.
Moreover, the GigaBeam Plus finds significant utility in urban smart city projects, where a myriad of devices requires high-bandwidth connections to function effectively. In scenarios like city-wide surveillance systems, traffic management, or public Wi-Fi networks, the GigaBeam Plus can provide the necessary high-speed link between data collection points and control centers. Its ability to deliver gigabit speeds wirelessly means that cities can deploy and expand their network of IoT devices without the disruptive, time-consuming process of digging up streets for new cables. This not only reduces deployment costs but also accelerates the rollout of smart city initiatives, enhancing public safety, traffic flow, and municipal services with a minimal physical footprint on the urban landscape.
