Detailed description

5 GHz, 31 dBi high-performance dish antenna

The airMAX AC 5 GHz, 31 dBi RocketDish, carrying the model manufacture part number RD-5G31-AC, is a state-of-the-art high-gain directional antenna developed by Ubiquiti Networks. This device is meticulously engineered to extend and enhance wireless network capabilities, particularly for point-to-point (PtP) connections. Operating in the 5 GHz frequency band, the RD-5G31-AC incorporates Ubiquiti's advanced airMAX AC technology, aiming to deliver unparalleled network throughput, reduced latency, and improved scalability across long distances.
Compatible with Rocket Prism 5AC and Rocket M5
The RD-5G31-AC is specifically engineered to complement Ubiquiti's Rocket radios, including the Rocket M5 AC Lite, Rocket Prism 5AC, and possible compatibility with other models within the Rocket series that operate on the 5 GHz frequency band. The dish features a built-in Rocket mount that facilitates a straightforward, secure attachment, ensuring an optimal physical and operational integration. This compatibility is crucial for achieving long-distance, high-throughput wireless links that are stable and reliable. It's also important to note, though, that the RD-5G31-AC is specifically designed for use with Rocket series radios and may not directly integrate with other device types, such as those in the UniFi series, which are geared towards managed indoor Wi-Fi networks and have their own distinct ecosystem and management software.
Central to the RD-5G31-AC's exceptional performance is its parabolic dish design, which boasts a diameter that ensures a 31 dBi gain. This high level of gain is critical for concentrating and directing the antenna's signal, facilitating superior reach and signal integrity over extensive distances. The focused energy transmission not only significantly enhances the link's performance but also minimizes potential interference from surrounding signals, a pivotal factor in maintaining a clear and reliable connection in areas crowded with RF noise.
The integration of airMAX AC technology within the RD-5G31-AC is a hallmark of its design. This technology introduces a more efficient modulation scheme and a Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) protocol that together enhance network performance. By enabling greater data throughput and optimizing the allocation of communication time slots between devices, airMAX AC technology ensures that the RD-5G31-AC can support high-capacity wireless networks that demand maximum performance.
Durability and ease of installation are among the key features of the RD-5G31-AC. The antenna is constructed to endure harsh outdoor environments, featuring a robust, weather-resistant design that ensures its longevity and reliability. The inclusion of a protective radome shields the antenna from the elements, further enhancing its durability. For installation, the RD-5G31-AC comes equipped with a versatile mounting system designed for ease of alignment and secure attachment, enabling precise positioning to achieve optimal signal reception and transmission.
Designed for compatibility with Ubiquiti's Rocket radios, the RD-5G31-AC seamlessly integrates with these devices to create a powerful wireless communication link. The antenna's universal Rocket mount allows for quick and secure connection to compatible Rocket models, ensuring that the system can be rapidly deployed to meet the needs of high-performance wireless networks.
Management of the network link established by the RD-5G31-AC and a connected Rocket radio is facilitated through Ubiquiti's airOS, an advanced, intuitive web-based operating system. airOS provides network administrators with comprehensive tools for device configuration, performance monitoring, and network optimization, enabling efficient management of the wireless infrastructure.

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.
