Detailed description

The Sector AirMax 5G20-90 is a sector antenna meticulously engineered by Ubiquiti Networks to address the evolving demands of high-speed wireless networking. Designed for the 5 GHz frequency band, this model is a standout component of Ubiquiti's acclaimed AirMax series, renowned for delivering exceptional wireless broadband connectivity with a focus on performance, reliability, and coverage efficiency.
The Sector AirMax 5G20-90 integrates with Ubiquiti's Rocket M and Rocket Prism radios (sold separately).
Ubiquiti Networks has designed the AM-5G20-90 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-5G20-90 to deliver exceptional performance in a wide range of applications.
Characterized by a 20 dBi gain, the AM-5G20-90 antenna significantly amplifies signal strength, facilitating extended wireless coverage across larger distances. This high gain is instrumental in enhancing network reach and reliability, allowing network operators to efficiently cover vast areas without necessitating an excessive number of base stations. Such capability is vital for optimizing network deployment costs while ensuring robust connectivity.
The antenna features a 90-degree beamwidth, providing focused sector coverage ideal for point-to-multipoint (PtMP) configurations. This targeted coverage allows for effective communication with multiple client devices within the sector, ensuring high-quality connectivity even in environments with numerous potential interference sources. By concentrating the signal in a specific direction, the AM-5G20-90 maximizes network performance and capacity, making it an excellent choice for ISPs and network operators seeking broad yet precise wireless coverage.
Incorporating dual-polarization technology, the AM-5G20-90 supports simultaneous transmission and reception of signals in both vertical and horizontal orientations. This dual-polarization not only doubles the potential data throughput but also significantly reduces interference, resulting in a more stable and reliable network connection that can accommodate a high volume of data traffic and a large number of simultaneous users.
Constructed to withstand the rigors of outdoor deployment, the AM-5G20-90 boasts a robust, weather-resistant design. This ensures its longevity and sustained performance in diverse environmental conditions, including adverse weather and UV exposure, making it ideally 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 20 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-5G20-90, ensuring seamless monitoring across wide geographical areas without the need for extensive cabling.
In each of these scenarios, the Sector AirMax 5G20-90 represents a pinnacle in sector antenna technology, offering network operators an advanced solution for achieving widespread, reliable wireless coverage. With its high gain, focused beamwidth, dual-polarization capabilities, durable construction, and compatibility with leading-edge networking technologies, the AM-5G20-90 is engineered to meet the comprehensive needs of modern wireless networking, providing an efficient and effective means of expanding and enhancing wireless broadband access in various outdoor settings.

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.
