airFiber X AntennaOverview:

The airFiber X Antennas feature significant advances in noise isolation and beam performance to complement the airFiber X radios for carrier backhauls and Point-to-Point (PtP) bridging (airFiber X radio sold separately).

Powerful Performance

The airFiber X antenna delivers 2x2, dual-polarity performance. On the right is one example of how the airFiber X antenna with an airFiber X radio can be deployed as endpoints in a backhaul link to deliver bandwidth from a WISP network out to a neighborhood tower. From there, an airMAX Sector antenna with a Rocket radio delivers bandwidth to the WISP's customers.

Application Example
Application Example

Carrier-Class Construction

Incorporating a dish reflector design for excellent beam directivity, the airFiber X antennas feature robust mechanical design using industrial‑strength hardware for outdoor application use.

Plug and Play Integration

airFiber X antennas and airFiber X radios have been designed to seamlessly work together. Every airFiber X antenna has a built-in airFiber X radio mount, so installation requires no special tools. Snap the airFiber X radio securely into place and mount the antenna; you then have the optimal combination of airFiber X antenna and airFiber X radio for your PtP application.

Features:

Innovative Mechanical DesignInnovative Mechanical Design

  • Secure Pole-Mounting
    Maintains the position of the dish during harsh outdoor conditions.
  • Low-Profile Form Factor of the AF-5G23-S45
    Reduces wind-loading.

Weatherproof Design

  • Protective Shroud
    Protects the cables and connectors from the elements.
  • Integrated Radome of the AF-5G23-S45
    Shields the radio from the environment.

Compact Footprint for Deployment Flexibility

The compact form factor allows the airFiber X Antennas to be used in various applications, from carrier backhauls between towers to PtP bridging between buildings.

The airFiber X supports ± 45° slant polarization for improved noise immunity and Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR). The compact form factor of the airFiber X allows it to fit into the radio mount of Ubiquiti antennas, so installation requires no special tools.

The airFiber X antennas are purpose-built with 45° slant polarity for seamless integration with the airFiber X.

Avanced RF Isolation Design

The innovative industrial design improves RF isolation to significantly reduce interference and deliver superior gain for high-capacity, multipoint networks. The near-field plot of the AF-5G23-S45 is displayed in watts and uses a linear scale. The strength of the electromagnetic field is color-coded:

  • Red: Highest strength
  • Green: Medium strength
  • Indigo: Lowest strength

ISO-BEAM-620IsoBeam
(Model: ISO-BEAM-620)

The IsoBeam is an isolator radome that is available as an optional accessory for the AF-5G30-S45 and other dish antenna models:

  • RocketDish RD-5G30-LW
  • PowerBeam PBE-5AC-620
  • PowerBeam PBE-M5-620

The innovative RF-choke perimeter of the IsoBeam delivers superior noise immunity in co-location deployments; its perimeter corrugation provides enhanced RF shielding. Compare the two near-field plots below, and note the breakthrough isolation performance of the IsoBeam.

Both near-field plots are displayed in watts and use a linear scale. The strength of the electromagnetic field is color-coded:

  • Red: Highest strength
  • Green: Medium strength
