Detailed description

The Sector AirMax 5G17-90 is a sector antenna meticulously engineered by Ubiquiti Networks to address the sophisticated demands of contemporary wireless networking. Tailored for the 5 GHz frequency band, this model is an integral component of the revered AirMax series, known for its exceptional capability to deliver high-speed, reliable wireless broadband connectivity across expansive areas.
The Sector AirMax 5G17-90 integrates with Ubiquiti's Rocket M and Rocket Prism radios (sold separately).
Ubiquiti Networks has designed the AM-5G17-90 for seamless integration with its Rocket M and Rocket Prism series of base stations that operate in the 5 GHz frequency band. When paired, for example, with a compatible Rocket Prism 5AC unit, the antenna becomes part of a powerful PtMP network solution capable of delivering high-speed internet access across expansive areas. This integration is facilitated by Ubiquiti’s airMAX technology, which employs intelligent QoS and TDMA protocols to significantly improve network throughput, reduce latency, and support a high density of users. AirMAX technology is a cornerstone of Ubiquiti's approach to wireless networking, enabling the AM-5G17-90 to deliver exceptional performance in a wide range of applications.
Designed with a gain of 17 dBi, the AM-5G17-90 significantly amplifies the ability of networks to transmit and receive data over extended distances with remarkable efficiency. This elevated gain is pivotal for enhancing the reach and quality of wireless network connectivity, making it possible to cover larger areas with fewer base stations, thereby optimizing the deployment's cost-effectiveness and efficiency.
Featuring a precise 90-degree beamwidth, the antenna is adept at providing focused coverage across wide sectors. This characteristic is essential for point-to-multipoint (PtMP) network configurations, facilitating efficient communication with multiple client devices located within the coverage area. By concentrating the signal in a specific direction, the AM-5G17-90 maximizes network performance and capacity, proving invaluable for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and organizations that require broad wireless coverage.
The inclusion of dual-polarization technology further enhances the AM-5G17-90's performance by enabling simultaneous transmission and reception of data streams in both vertical and horizontal orientations. This feature not only doubles the potential data throughput but also plays a critical role in minimizing interference, ensuring a stable and reliable connection that can support a high density of users and data-intensive applications.
Constructed to endure the challenges of outdoor deployment, the AM-5G17-90 boasts a durable, weather-resistant design. This resilience ensures its long-term reliability and consistent performance under various environmental conditions, including extreme weather events, making it perfectly suited for outdoor applications.
Ideal for a wide array of applications, from extending broadband access to rural communities and enhancing connectivity across educational or corporate campuses, to providing reliable wireless service at public events or within large-scale surveillance networks. Its 90-degree beamwidth and 17 dBi gain make it an ideal choice for creating point-to-multipoint (PtMP) networks, where it can serve as a central communication hub connecting multiple client devices spread out over large areas. This capability is especially beneficial for internet service providers (ISPs) aiming to extend broadband access in rural and suburban regions where laying physical cables is impractical or too costly. Additionally, the antenna's performance characteristics make it well-suited for deploying wireless surveillance networks over extensive properties. Security systems that require high-bandwidth connections for real-time video feeds benefit from the reliable and expansive coverage offered by the AM-5G17-90, ensuring seamless monitoring across wide geographical areas without the need for extensive cabling.
In each of these scenarios, the Sector AirMax 5G17-90's advanced features, including its dual-polarization capability and compatibility with Ubiquiti’s airMAX technology, ensure efficient bandwidth utilization, minimized interference, and high-throughput connectivity, making it a versatile tool for a wide range of wireless networking applications.

Selecting the right antenna

Selecting the right antenna from Ubiquiti's Sector AirMax series necessitates careful consideration of several crucial aspects. The primary focus should be on the specific coverage needs of your network. Models with a 120-degree beamwidth are designed for broad area coverage, making them ideal for expansive outdoor settings where users are spread out. In contrast, the 90-degree beamwidth models offer more focused coverage suitable for targeted areas or narrower sectors.
The gain of the antenna, indicative of its signal strength and range, also plays a pivotal role in the selection process. Higher gain models are adept at covering large distances and penetrating through obstacles, essential for vast, open environments. Meanwhile, lower gain options might suffice for smaller, more confined spaces where extensive reach is not necessary.Take into account the installation environment, including potential obstacles (buildings, trees) and weather conditions. Higher gain antennas can better penetrate and maintain signal strength over distances but may require more substantial mounting solutions. As well as higher gain antennas can transmit signals over longer distances and are preferable for covering large, open spaces. Lower gain options may be adequate for smaller, more confined areas.
