Ubiquiti airFiber 5X – 5 GHz Carrier Backhaul Radio (AF-5X
The Ubiquiti airFiber AF-5X is designed for long-range, Point-to-Point (PtP) backhaul links. It features the highest TDD throughput available and proprietary HDD for ultra-low latency.
Ubiquiti airFiber 5X Key Features
- 500 + Mbps Throughput
- 5 GHz Frequency
- 200+ km Range
- GPS Synchronised
- Full-Band Certification including DFS
- Ubiquiti’s INVICTUS™ Custom Silicon
The AF-5X features industry-leading 10.6 Mbps/Hz spectral efficiency, covering the entire 5 GHz spectrum with one radio, and delivering up to 500+ Mbps real throughput and 200+ km range.
The AF-5X covers the entire, license-free, 5 GHz spectrum and includes DFS approval. Anyone around the world can deploy and operate the AF-5X in the 5 GHz range practically anywhere they choose (subject to local country regulations).
Engineered for Performance
Ubiquiti’s INVICTUS™ custom silicon and proprietary radio architecture are designed specifically for long-distance, outdoor wireless applications.
The compact form factor allows the airFiber X to be used with airFiber Slant 45 antennas, or instantly upgrade a 5 GHz Rocket™link that uses a RocketDish™RD‑5G30/RD‑5G34* antenna.
Carrier Backhaul for the World
Deploy the 2.4, 3, 4, 5 or 11 GHz model that meets your specific spectrum requirements, anywhere around the world. The airFiber X features multiple channel width options to suit your deployment needs – up to 11 different channel sizes available for the AF-2X or AF-3X.
Optimal Operation and Channel Configuration
Channel width flexibility allows you to independently configure TX and RX channel frequencies and place them anywhere within the radio band to avoid local interference. You also have the ability to program different uplink and downlink duty cycles to support asymmetric traffic requirements.
