airMAX WISP Customer Wi-Fi Solution
Sorry, this product is no longer available, and replaced by the Ubiquiti airCube.
The airGateway™ is an airMAX WISP customer Wi-Fi solution. It simultaneously connects indoor client devices and powers the outdoor airMAX CPE (Customer Premises Equipment).
The airGateway is available in two different models: the airGateway, which is the standard model with an internal antenna, and the airGateway-LR, which includes an external antenna for extended range.
In the diagram on the right, the airGateway supports multiple functions:
- Acts as an indoor wireless device connecting multiple wireless clients
- Connects to a switch to support wired clients
- Powers the airMAX CPE on the roof
Typical airGateway Application
The airGateway is deployed indoors to connect client devices.
The airGateway can operate in any of these network modes to meet the needs of your network:
- SOHO (Small Office/Home Office) Router
The airGateway supports these wireless modes to fulfill your wireless requirements:
- Access Point mode to function as the center of your wireless network
- Station mode to extend your wireless network
Such versatile functionality makes the airGateway extremely convenient and economical to deploy.
The airGateway is compatible with Ubiquiti PoE Adapters featuring 24V, 0.5A or 15V, 0.3A.
The airGateway provides an additional ±24kV of Ethernet isolation for built-in protection that lessens the risk of ESD or surge damage to your devices.
Ubiquiti PoE Adapter Compatibility
The airGateway plugs into a Ubiquiti PoE Adapter. Compatible with POE-15-12W & POE-24-12W.
Convenient Customer Wi-Fi
The airGateway™ seamlessly bridges airMAX connectivity to Wi-Fi for client devices at the customer's location.
Use the airOS Configuration Interface to provision the airGateway™, monitor its configuration and restrict/enable customer management.
Sleek Mechanical Design
The airGateway™ features an innovative design that interlocks with an existing airMAX PoE Adapter.
Designed for performance and reliability, the airGateway™ delivers Wi-Fi connectivity with 99.9% uptime.
