Detailed description

Compact, UISP-ready, 5 GHz WiFi bridge with enhanced surge protection and an interchangeable horn antenna.

The airMAX IsoStation 5AC represents a significant leap in the field of wireless broadband technology, brought forth by Ubiquiti Networks. This device is designed to deliver high-performance, point-to-point (PtP) and point-to-multipoint (PtMP) connectivity, with a keen focus on isolation performance to minimize interference in crowded signal environments. As part of Ubiquiti's esteemed airMAX series, the IsoStation 5AC utilizes the latest airMAX ac technology to provide unparalleled throughput and network reliability over the 5 GHz frequency band.
The IsoStation 5AC is specifically designed to work in harmony with other airMAX ac devices. This includes compatibility for both point-to-point (PtP) and point-to-multipoint (PtMP) configurations, making it versatile for various network designs, whether it's connecting isolated buildings or serving as a part of a larger, distributed network. Its ability to integrate with airMAX ac sector antennas and other CPE devices allows for flexible deployment strategies tailored to meet specific network requirements and environments. Moreover, for the best performance and compatibility, it is crucial to pair the IsoStation 5AC with devices that operate on the same 5 GHz frequency band and support the airMAX ac protocol. Mixing devices across different frequencies or technologies without compatibility could lead to suboptimal performance or connectivity issues.
In addition, please keep in mind that while the IsoStation 5AC excels within the airMAX ecosystem, it does not natively integrate with the UniFi series of products, which are managed through the UniFi Controller. The UniFi series primarily focuses on managed Wi-Fi networking within indoor and semi-outdoor environments and operates on a different platform.
Central to the IsoStation 5AC's design is its innovative horn antenna technology, which offers beamwidth options to tailor the device for specific deployment needs. This customization capability allows network architects to precisely control signal coverage, dramatically reducing interference from other signals by focusing the transmission and reception within a more confined area. The horn antenna's design is pivotal for creating highly efficient up to 10+ km wireless links, especially in areas where signal congestion is a common challenge.
Equipped with a robust, weather-resistant design, the IsoStation 5AC is built to withstand the rigors of outdoor installation. Its durable housing protects the internal components from harsh environmental conditions, including rain, wind, and extreme temperatures from -40 °C to 70 °C, ensuring reliable performance year-round. This resilience makes the IsoStation 5AC an excellent choice for deploying in diverse geographical locations, from urban rooftops to rural settings. Moreover, thanks to its modular design the antenna horn is interchangeable and helps with beam-shaping for specific deployment and environment needs. The IsoStation™ also gets maximum gain out of the smallest footprint. In addition, please keep in mind that asymmetrical horn antenna options (60° and 90°) have naturally attenuated side lobes and extremely low back radiation, and they offer industry-leading front-to-back ratio and low side lobe radiation. Symmetrical horn antennas (30° and 45°, the default) are ideal for cluster sector installations with high co-location requirements.
The IS-5AC operates using Ubiquiti's proprietary airMAX ac protocol, integrating advanced modulation and Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) technologies. This protocol enhances bandwidth efficiency and reduces latency, making the IsoStation 5AC ideal for applications requiring high data rates, such as video streaming, VoIP, and data backup services. The airMAX ac technology ensures compatibility with other Ubiquiti airMAX ac devices, facilitating seamless integration into existing networks and enabling scalable deployments.
The device also features advanced software capabilities powered by Ubiquiti's airOS 8. This intuitive, web-based operating system provides a comprehensive suite of tools for device configuration, network management, and performance optimization. With airOS 8, users can access detailed analytics, adjust network parameters, and monitor system status in real time, offering complete control over the wireless infrastructure.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) support further enhances the IsoStation 5AC's deployment flexibility. By allowing power and data transmission over a single Ethernet cable, PoE simplifies installation and reduces cabling requirements, enabling strategic placement of the device to maximize signal coverage and link stability.
Security is a paramount concern in wireless networking, and the IsoStation 5AC addresses this with robust encryption and access control features. These security measures ensure that data transmitted across the network remains secure from unauthorized access, safeguarding sensitive information and maintaining network integrity.

Application Scenarios

The IsoStation 5AC shines in establishing high-speed, long-distance wireless links between two points. It's ideal for connecting separate buildings within a corporate campus, extending internet access to remote locations, or linking surveillance systems to a central monitoring station, offering a reliable and cost-effective alternative to traditional wired connections. For internet service providers looking to distribute broadband access across a community or a large area, the IsoStation 5AC serves as an efficient base station. Its horn antenna technology significantly reduces interference from other signals, making it possible to provide stable and high-quality internet service to multiple customers even in congested signal areas.
Businesses requiring constant internet connectivity can employ the IsoStation 5AC to create redundant wireless links. In case the primary wired connection fails, the IsoStation can ensure uninterrupted network service, minimizing downtime and maintaining operational continuity. Moreover, the IsoStation 5AC can play a crucial role in security and surveillance applications, where it can be used to transmit high-definition video feeds from cameras positioned at various points back to a central location for monitoring. Its ability to maintain strong and focused signal beams over long distances ensures the integrity and reliability of video transmission, critical for security operations.
In rural areas where traditional broadband infrastructure is not available, the IsoStation 5AC can be deployed to bridge the digital divide, offering high-speed internet access to remote homes, schools, or businesses. Its long-range capabilities and interference mitigation technology enable service providers to reach underserved areas effectively.
For outdoor events that require temporary internet access or network connectivity, such as festivals, sports events, or conferences, the IsoStation 5AC can quickly establish a network infrastructure. Its ease of setup and resistance to interference make it well-suited for providing robust wireless coverage in temporary, high-demand environments.
In each of these scenarios, the airMAX IsoStation 5AC (IS-5AC) by Ubiquiti Networks is a highly specialized wireless connectivity solution that combines cutting-edge horn antenna technology with the latest airMAX ac protocol. Its focus on signal isolation, combined with high throughput capabilities, weather-resistant design, and comprehensive network management features, makes the IsoStation 5AC a powerful tool for building high-performance, interference-resistant wireless networks in a wide range of application scenarios.
