Utilize airMAX Technology

airMAXUnlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, the exclusive Ubiquiti Networks airMAX Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) protocol allows each client to send and receive data using pre-designated time slots managed by an intelligent AP controller. This "time slot" method eliminates hidden node collisions and maximizes airtime efficiency.

Compared to other systems in its class, the airGridM delivers superior performance in reduced latency, throughput, and scalability.

  • Intelligent QoS - Priority is given to voice/video seamless access.
  • Scalability - High capacity and scalability.
  • Long Distance - Capable of high-speed, 30+ km links.

airMAX TDMA Technology
Up to 100 airMAX stations can be connected to an airMAX Sector; four airMAX
stations are shown to illustrate the general concept

Robust and Simple Design

AirGrid M HP was designed to be extremely robust to use. It can be easily oriented to use either vertical or horizontal polarization. To adjust polarization, just rotate the antenna in the desired polarization position and rotate the opening on the rear portion of the feed to face the ground (for optimal weatherproofing).

Vertical and Horizontal PolarityAirGrid M HP is available for 2.4GHz and 5GHz in both 11x14" and 17x24" grid dimensions. A "snap-on" feed extension is included when using 17x24".

Mechanical design provides complete weatherproof performance. Activity and signal strength LED's provided for installers.

Enhanced RF and Ethernet ESD/Surge protection enables prolonged operation in harshest environments.

Easy, No Tool Assembly

The updated mechanical design makes assembling and disassembling the airGridM, literally, a snap. No tools are required. You simply snap the feed, antenna, mounting bracket and rear housing together for a secure, solid assembly.

Spectrum AnalyzerairView
Spectrum Analyzer by Ubiquiti Networks

signatures and plan your networks to minimize noise interference. airView performs the following functions:

  • Constantly monitors environmental noise
  • Collects energy data points in real-time spectral views
  • Helps optimize channel selection, network design, and wireless performance

airView runs in the background without disabling the wireless link, so there is no disruption to the network.

In airView, there are three spectral views, each of which represents different data.

  • Waterfall Aggregate energy collected for each frequency
  • Waveform Aggregate energy collected
  • Ambient Noise Level Background noise energy shown as a function of frequency

Available with a firmware upgrade to airOS v7.1, airView provides powerful spectrum analyzer functionality, eliminating the need to rent or purchase additional equipment for conducting site surveys.

Waterfall Chart

This time-based graph shows the aggregate energy collected since the start of an AirView session, over time for each frequency. The power of the energy in dBm is shown across the frequency span and one row is inserted in this graph every few seconds.

It is important to note that the color of the energy designates its amplitude. The darker colors (Blues and darker shades) mean very low to low energy levels at that frequency bin, whereas increasingly brighter colors (ie: Green, Yellow, Orange, and finally Red) designate increasingly higher energy levels at the specific frequency bin.

The Waterfall View's legend (top-right corner) provides a numerical guide associating the various colors to power levels (dBm). The low end of that legend (left) is always adjusted with the calculated noise floor, and the high end (right) is set to the highest detected power level since the start of the session.

Waterfall Chart

Channel Usage Chart

This graph is ideal for determining the best channel to setup a WiFi network for optimal performance. In the graph, each 2.4GHz WiFi channel is represented by a bar displaying a percentage representing the relative "crowdedness" of that specific channel.This percentage is calculated by analyzing both the popularity and the strength of RF energy in that channel since the start of a AirView session. An installer could use this view to optimize a network installation by avoiding highly used channels and setting up new AP's on channels showing the least usage.

Channel Usage Chart

Waveform Chart

This graph shows the aggregate energy collected since the start of an AirView Session. The power of the energy in dBm is shown across the frequency span. A Blue color will mean energy at a particular strength and frequency appears in the air with a relatively low occurence, whereas increasingly brighter colors (ie: Green, Yellow, Orange, and finally Red) designate energy appearing at a specific power/frequency with higher occurrence. The spectral view over time will essentially display the steady-state RF energy signature of a given environment. An installer could use this view to optimize a network installation by avoiding highly used channels and setting up new AP's on channels showing the least usage.

Waveform Chart

Real-time Chart

This graph displays a traditional Spectrum Analyzer in which energy (in dBm) is shown real-time as a function of frequency. There are three traces in this view: Max Hold, this trace will update and hold maximum power levels across the frequency since the start of an AirView session. Average, this trace shows the running average energy across frequency. Real-time, this trace shows the real-time energy seen by the AirView device as a function of frequency.
