UBIQUITI PowerBeam M5 airMAX – outdoor CPE, frequency: 5 GHz, throughput: 150+ Mbps, range: 25+ km, 1x LAN, incl. 25 dBi antenna
Starting with the first-generation NanoBridge®, Ubiquiti Networks pioneered the all-in-one design for an airMAX® product functioning as a CPE (Customer Premises Equipment). The PowerBeam® was the next generation of Ubiquiti Networks CPE’s.
Improved Noise Immunity
The PowerBeam directs RF energy in a tighter beamwidth. With the focus in one direction, the PowerBeam blocks or spatially filters out noise, so noise immunity is improved. This feature is especially important in an area crowded with other RF signals of the same or similar frequency.
Ubiquiti’s InnerFeed® technology integrates the radio into the feedhorn of an antenna, so there is no need for a cable. This improves performance because it eliminates cable losses.
Providing high performance and innovative mechanical design at a low cost, the PowerBeam is extremely versatile and cost‑effective to deploy.
airMAX Technology Included
Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, Ubiquiti’s Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) airMAX protocol
allows each client to send and receive data using pre-designated time slots scheduled by an intelligent AP controller.
This time slot method eliminates hidden node collisions and maximizes airtime efficiency. It
provides significant performance improvements in latency, throughput, and scalability compared to all other outdoor systems in its class.
Intelligent QoS. Priority is given to voice/video for seamless streaming.
Scalability. High capacity and scalability.
Long Distance. Capable of high‑speed, carrier-class links.
