Detailed description

Efficient Directional Radiation

Elevate the capabilities of your UniFi® AC Mesh access point (model UAP-AC-M) with the advanced UMA-D dual-band antenna, meticulously engineered to enhance sector coverage and maximize network performance across diverse environments. This precision-crafted antenna excels in extending signal ranges, ensuring robust wireless connectivity even in challenging climates. The UMA-D features a high-efficiency directional radiation pattern, meticulously tailored for the 802.11ac spectrum. This design focuses the antenna’s energy in specific directions, boosting its gain and minimizing wastage, which is essential for maintaining strong connections over greater distances and through physical barriers. It’s optimized for the 5 GHz band to leverage the faster data rates and reduced interference provided by the 802.11ac standard, making it perfect for bandwidth-intensive applications like HD video streaming and online gaming.
With its dual-band functionality, the UMA-D operates on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, allowing devices to seamlessly switch between bands based on signal quality and network traffic. This versatility helps in managing connectivity in congested areas where the 2.4 GHz band is typically overwhelmed, thus ensuring consistent service delivery. The dual-polarity feature of the antenna enhances this functionality by handling both horizontal and vertical signal polarizations simultaneously, which significantly improves signal reliability and doubles the pathways for data transmission. This is particularly beneficial in dynamic environments where device orientation and interference might otherwise degrade signal quality.

Dual-Band Directivity for Targeted Coverage

The UMA-D features a high-efficiency radiator, delivering tailored coverage precisely where it's needed. This specialized antenna design focuses on minimizing interference and maximizing performance, making it a superior choice for complex network environments. By employing a strategic design that directs the signal within specific angular sectors rather than a broad, omnidirectional spread, the UMA-D achieves optimized sector coverage. This approach allows for energy to be concentrated into arcs such as 90 degrees, which significantly sharpens signal quality and reduces interference within the designated coverage area. Such precision is instrumental in large open spaces like campuses, sports arenas, and extensive outdoor recreational areas, where directing coverage effectively enhances user experience and network reliability.
Operating on the 2.4 GHz band, the UMA-D offers a semi-directional pattern with up to 90 degrees of coverage and a gain of 10 dBi. This configuration ensures that the antenna covers a broad area while still focusing energy to improve signal reach and strength, ideal for environments that require expansive yet controlled coverage. In contrast, for the 5 GHz range, the UMA-D narrows its focus to a 45-degree directional pattern, accompanied by a gain of 15 dBi. This tighter beam is perfect for high-performance, long-distance communication, such as linking buildings across campus or targeting specific areas of a large venue. This dual-band capability allows for flexible application across different scenarios, ensuring both broad coverage and pinpoint signal delivery where it is most needed.

Seamless Alignment with Intuitive Mounting

The UMA-D's rear panel is not just functionally important but also crucial for maintaining the integrity of the device. It houses essential connectivity ports and controls, all protected by a robust, hermetically sealed housing that stands up to diverse climatic conditions. This durable plastic construction not only safeguards the antenna's intricate components from external factors such as moisture and dust but also incorporates effective heat dissipation mechanisms. These features prevent overheating and ensure the antenna's longevity and consistent performance, crucial for maintaining network reliability in any setting.
Moreover, the UMA-D is equipped with a sophisticated ball joint 3-axis mount, which provides exceptional aiming capabilities. This mounting system allows for precise adjustments in three critical directions—azimuth (left/right), elevation (up/down), and orientation (angle)—enabling fine-tuning of the antenna's direction to maximize line-of-sight with the receiver and minimize any potential signal obstructions. Whether mounted on a wall, ceiling, or pole, the included mounting system facilitates a hassle-free installation process. The ball-joint’s versatility also supports quick orientation changes, accommodating both vertical and horizontal placements effortlessly.
