Detailed description

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

The airMAX NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 represents a significant advancement in Ubiquiti Networks' lineup of compact wireless network bridges, embodying the perfect amalgamation of innovative design and advanced technology to deliver superior wireless broadband connectivity. Designed for point-to-point (PtP) and point-to-multipoint (PtMP) applications, this device is tailored to meet the needs of high-speed, long-distance communication with enhanced efficiency and reliability.
The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 is fully compatible with other devices in the airMAX ac family. This includes a wide range of Ubiquiti's outdoor wireless access points and client devices that also utilize airMAX ac technology. Such compatibility is crucial for setting up efficient and high-capacity point-to-point (PtP) and point-to-multipoint (PtMP) links, ensuring reliable and high-speed wireless connectivity across various deployment scenarios. This device, operating on the 5 GHz frequency band using airMAX ac technology, is geared towards ensuring seamless integration and optimal performance when paired with other Ubiquiti airMAX devices. Please also note, that compatibility with older airMAX devices (those using the 802.11n standard) might be limited. For optimal performance, it is recommended to use devices within the same technological generation.
In addition, please keep in mind that NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 does not natively integrate with Ubiquiti's UniFi series. The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2, being part of the airMAX series, operates on a different platform from Ubiquiti's UniFi products. While UniFi devices are managed through the UniFi Controller software and cater to managed Wi-Fi networks, the NanoBeam and other airMAX devices use airOS for configuration and are focused on long-distance outdoor wireless links. Thus, direct integration between airMAX and UniFi devices is not inherent.
Central to the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2's design is its utilization of Ubiquiti's airMAX ac technology, which operates within the 5 GHz frequency band. This technology leverages a patented Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) protocol to significantly reduce noise interference in busy environments, thereby increasing network performance and capacity. The implementation of airMAX ac technology enables the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 to deliver broadband speeds more efficiently over 10 km distances compared to traditional Wi-Fi or older airMAX technologies.
Ubiquiti’s airMAX® technology is proven in millions of deployments worldwide, exhibiting outstanding performance in outdoor environments. The TDMA airMAX protocol with custom IC dramatically enables unprecedented scalability, high throughput and low latency in unlicensed, multipoint networks. While custom silicon provides hardware acceleration capabilities to the airMAX scheduler, to support the high data rates and dense modulation used in airMAX ac technology.
Featuring a high-gain, directional antenna with a 19dBi gain, the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 focuses the wireless signal in a tighter beamwidth, minimizing interference from other sources and significantly enhancing the signal's range and reliability. This directional antenna is crucial for establishing focused, 10+ km wireless links, making the device exceptionally well-suited for connecting remote locations or extending network coverage across large distances.
The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 is designed with user convenience and durability in mind. Its compact form factor and lightweight design allow for easy mounting on a variety of surfaces, ensuring flexible deployment options like poles or walls, and offers the freedom of three-axis alignment. No screws are required for pole-mounting, and only a single wall screw (not included) is required for wall-mounting. The device is encased in a protective, weather-resistant housing, safeguarding the internal components from harsh environmental conditions, such as rain, wind, sun and temperature fluctuation from -40 °C to 80 °C, thereby ensuring consistent performance and longevity in outdoor installations.
The device also incorporates Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality, allowing both power and data to be transmitted over a single Ethernet cable. This simplifies installation by eliminating the need for a separate power source, making the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 easier to deploy in a variety of locations, even those where power outlets are not readily accessible.
Security is a key consideration in the design of the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2, featuring WPA2 AES encryption to protect the wireless network from unauthorized access. This level of security ensures that sensitive data transmitted over the network remains secure from potential threats.
Powered by Ubiquiti's airOS 8, the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 offers an intuitive, user-friendly interface for device configuration and network management. airOS 8 provides advanced features such as device discovery, signal strength visualization, and network analytics, enabling network administrators to fine-tune settings for optimal performance. The operating system also supports airView, a real-time spectrum analysis tool that helps users identify the best channel for their network setup, reducing potential interference.
The airMAX NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 from Ubiquiti Networks is adept at addressing a wide range of wireless connectivity needs. It's ideal for connecting two distant locations, the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 excels in creating high-speed, reliable PtP links. Whether it's connecting two buildings within a corporate campus, linking remote offices to the main network infrastructure, or extending internet access to a remote home or facility, this device ensures efficient, high-bandwidth connectivity over kilometers. While, in scenarios where a single internet source needs to be distributed to multiple locations, the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 serves as an effective CPE (Customer Premises Equipment). ISPs can deploy these units to deliver broadband services to residential or business customers spread over a wide area, ensuring consistent, high-quality internet access. Wireless ISP (WISP) Infrastructure can truly benefit from leveraging the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 to expand their service coverage or enhance network capacity
For surveillance networks that span large areas, such as industrial complexes, parking lots, or public parks, the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 can provide the necessary backhaul links. It supports the high data rates required for transmitting high-definition video feeds from surveillance cameras back to a central monitoring location, maintaining the integrity and quality of the video data. Meanwhile, for temporary events like festivals, outdoor concerts, or sports competitions, the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 can quickly establish wireless links to provide internet access or connect various operational areas.
In each of these scenarios, the airMAX NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 (NBE-5AC-Gen2) from Ubiquiti Networks is a powerful and efficient solution for creating high-speed, long-distance wireless connections. With its advanced airMAX ac technology, high-gain directional antenna, and robust design, combined with the intuitive airOS 8 management platform, the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 stands out as an ideal choice for network operators seeking reliable and cost-effective wireless connectivity solutions.
