Detailed description

5 GHz, 30 dBi RocketDish LW antennas in amount of 2 pieces with extended depth of the dish reflector that rejects noise interference in co-location deployments

The airMAX 5 GHz, 30 dBi RocketDish LW, carrying the model manufacture part number RD-5G30-LW, is a high-gain directional antenna designed by Ubiquiti Networks, distinguished for its lightweight construction and exceptional performance in establishing long-distance wireless communication links. This product is a pivotal component of Ubiquiti's airMAX series, tailored to enhance the connectivity and throughput of point-to-point (PtP) and point-to-multipoint (PtMP) networks operating in the 5 GHz frequency band.
Compatible with Rocket Prism 5AC
The RD-5G30-LW is explicitly designed to be compatible with Ubiquiti's Rocket radios, including models that operate within the 5 GHz frequency band, such as the Rocket M5, Rocket AC Lite, and Rocket Prism 5AC. The antenna features a built-in Rocket mount, allowing for a seamless physical and operational integration with these radios. This compatibility ensures that when paired together, the Rocket radio and RocketDish antenna can deliver optimal performance for wireless broadband connectivity across significant distances. It's also important to note that while the RD-5G30-LW is optimized for use with Rocket radios in the airMAX AC ecosystem, direct interoperability with other product lines such as UniFi, which focuses on managed Wi-Fi networking, might require separate planning and deployment considerations due to the different intended applications and management platforms of these series.
Constructed with an innovative approach to material use and design, the RocketDish LW (Light Weight) significantly reduces the overall weight of the unit while maintaining structural integrity and performance. This reduction in weight facilitates easier handling, installation, and mounting, particularly in scenarios where physical constraints or accessibility may pose challenges. The 30 dBi gain of the antenna is a testament to its ability to focus the radio signal efficiently, thereby maximizing the reach and reliability of the wireless link over extensive distances.
The RD-5G30-LW incorporates a precise parabolic dish that significantly enhances signal strength and directivity, focusing the radio's energy towards the target receiver and minimizing interference from surrounding signals. This focus is crucial for maintaining high-quality, stable connections, especially in environments cluttered with RF noise or in applications requiring substantial bandwidth over long distances.
Ubiquiti's airMAX technology underpins the operation of the RocketDish LW, with features designed to optimize network performance. This includes advanced TDMA protocols that improve network scalability and efficiency by reducing latency and increasing the amount of data that can be transmitted during each time slot. Compatibility with airMAX ac technology further enhances throughput and reduces interference, making the RD-5G30-LW an ideal choice for networks demanding high-capacity data transmission.
Despite its lightweight design, the RD-5G30-LW does not compromise on durability. The antenna is made from robust construction materials, ensuring it can withstand adverse outdoor conditions, including extreme temperatures, precipitation, and wind. This resilience guarantees the longevity of the device and the reliability of the network it supports. In addition, you can also purchase an optional IsoBeam™ protective cover, code ISO-BEAM-620, which improves signal directivity and reduces side glare. IsoBeam™ also protects the unit from even stronger wind and precipitation. An alignment kit is also available for purchase separately if needed. The Precision Alignment Kit, code PAK-620, provides the most accurate pointing for optimal link performance by allowing the antenna to be adjusted vertically and horizontally within a 15 degree range.
The RocketDish RD-5G30-LW itself does not use any management software directly, as it is an antenna and not an active network component with software or firmware. However, when paired with a compatible Ubiquiti Rocket radio, such as those from the airMAX series, the management of the device setup, including the RocketDish antenna, is conducted through Ubiquiti's airOS. airOS is a comprehensive, intuitive web-based operating system and interface designed for configuring, managing, and monitoring Ubiquiti's airMAX devices. It provides tools for adjusting network settings, analyzing performance metrics, and optimizing the wireless link established by the Rocket radio and RocketDish antenna combination.

Choosing the right RocketDish

Selecting the right RocketDish antenna requires matching the antenna’s frequency band with your network's to ensure compatibility; higher gain antennas are preferred for long-distance links due to their focused signal direction, while the beamwidth should align with your link's distance and precision requirements. Dual-polarization models can enhance signal quality by mitigating interference. Verify that the chosen RocketDish model fits your Ubiquiti Rocket radio, both in terms of mounting and technology support. Environmental conditions at the installation site, such as weather and wind, should influence the selection to guarantee the antenna's durability and stability. Additionally, adherence to local regulatory guidelines on frequency and power use is crucial to remain compliant. Opting for an antenna that exceeds current needs may offer scalability for future network expansion, providing a balance between immediate requirements and long-term network growth. This approach ensures a high-performance, reliable wireless link tailored to your specific deployment scenario.
