Detailed description

The Ubiquiti airMAX Rocket AC Lite, with the manufacturer part number R5AC-LITE, stands as a testament to Ubiquiti Networks' commitment to providing advanced, high-performance network solutions. Designed specifically to integrate seamlessly with the airMAX ac antenna lineup, this device leverages Ubiquiti's innovative airMAX ac technology to deliver superior wireless performance for Point-to-Point (PtP) or Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) bridging and backhaul applications.
The device operates on the 5 GHz frequency band, which is less congested than the more commonly used 2.4 GHz band, thereby reducing interference and enabling more stable, reliable connections. The flexibility of the frequency band selection is further enhanced by Ubiquiti's Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) feature, which automatically selects the best frequency bands to avoid interference and ensure optimal performance.
The Ubiquiti airMAX Rocket AC Lite (R5AC-LITE) is designed with broad compatibility in mind, especially within the Ubiquiti ecosystem. Its primary function is to serve as a base station in outdoor wireless networks, and it is particularly compatible with Ubiquiti's airMAX AC sector antennas and RocketDish antennas that operating within the same the 5 GHz frequency band. For in-depth specifications, including compatibility and operational parameters, please use provided technical datasheet.
When paired with airMAX AC sector antennas, the Rocket AC Lite can enable Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) configurations, effectively serving multiple client devices over a wide area. This setup is ideal for service providers looking to offer broadband services or for organizations needing to connect multiple buildings or sites. For Point-to-Point (PtP) configurations, which are used to connect two locations directly, the Rocket AC Lite works efficiently with Ubiquiti's RocketDish antennas. This combination is capable of delivering high throughput over long distances, making it suitable for backhaul applications or connecting remote locations.
At its core, the Rocket AC Lite is powered by a proprietary airMAX ac chipset, which facilitates remarkable throughput improvements, supporting up to 450+ Mbps in real-world throughput. This chipset is not only designed for speed but also efficiency, with custom silicon providing hardware acceleration to the airMAX protocol to ensure smooth, high-speed connectivity across the network. Also, the R5AC-LITE use of Ubiquiti's airPrism technology, a revolutionary development that significantly improves SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) in high-density areas. This is achieved through precise RF filtering, which isolates signals within the operating channel and drastically reduces interference from other signals, thereby enhancing both the device's performance and network stability.
Connectivity options on the device include a single Gigabit Ethernet port, which supports high-speed data transfers and provides Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability. This allows the device to be powered through the Ethernet cable, reducing cable clutter and simplifying the installation process. Additionally, the R5AC-LITE supports Ubiquiti's airMax TDMA protocol, which enhances network scalability and performance by efficiently managing bandwidth and reducing latency.
The compact, rugged design of the Rocket AC Lite is built to withstand the elements, making it ideal for outdoor deployment. It features a weather-resistant casing that protects the internal components from the environment, ensuring reliable operation in diverse weather conditions. Despite its durable construction, the device maintains a lightweight profile, facilitating easy mounting and alignment for optimal signal reception and transmission The Rocket AC Lite is also equipped with ESD/EMP protection to safeguard against electrostatic discharges and electromagnetic pulses, ensuring the device's longevity and reliability in challenging environments. It operates within a broad temperature range of -40°C to 80°C, making it suitable for deployment in a wide variety of climatic conditions
For network administrators, the R5AC-LITE comes equipped with Ubiquiti's intuitive airOS management software. This powerful firmware provides an advanced suite of tools for setup, monitoring, and management, including features such as detailed analytics and real-time reporting. The software's user-friendly interface simplifies the process of device configuration, making it accessible to professionals of varying technical expertise.

Application scenarios

The Ubiquiti airMAX Rocket AC Lite (R5AC-LITE) is adept at facilitating high-capacity, broadband connectivity for a wide array of application scenarios, making it a versatile solution for network architects and service providers. In rural or remote areas where traditional wired broadband services are challenging to deploy, the Rocket AC Lite shines as a backbone for delivering high-speed internet. By establishing Point-to-Point (PtP) links, this device can bridge significant distances, connecting isolated communities or remote operations to the main internet infrastructure. This application is critical for ensuring that businesses, schools, and residential users in less accessible locations have reliable access to digital resources, enhancing opportunities for education, commerce, and communication.
Additionally, the Rocket AC Lite excels in urban environments, serving as a Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) base station to support wireless internet service providers (WISPs) or for creating expansive WiFi coverage areas in campuses, parks, or residential complexes. Its ability to support 50+ client devices simultaneously ensures that a multitude of users can enjoy a stable and fast internet connection, catering to the demands of high-density areas. This capability is particularly beneficial for event venues or temporary setups where deploying traditional network infrastructure is impractical or too costly. Through seamless integration with other Ubiquiti airMAX devices, the Rocket AC Lite facilitates the rapid deployment of scalable, high-performance wireless networks that can adapt to the evolving needs of communities and businesses alike, underscoring its utility across diverse application scenarios.
