Overview:

Ubiquiti Networks has designed the first airMAX ac radios with high performance and ease of installation in mind. You have the freedom to deploy the Rocket ac anywhere in the world, and it allows for a high degree of flexibility in configuring channel bandwidths (subject to local country regulations).

The Rocket ac is available as three models: the Rocket5ac Lite, Rocket5ac PtP, and Rocket5ac PtMP. All three include airMAX ac technology. The Rocket5ac PtP and Rocket5ac PtMP also feature airPrism technology to further enhance performance.

Pair the Rocket ac with airMAX ac antennas for optimal performance:

  • PtP backhaul - Rocket5ac Lite or Rocket5ac PtP with the RocketDish ac
  • PtMP links - Rocket5ac PtMP or Rocket5ac Lite* with the airMAX ac Sector

* PtMP functionality is available with a firmware upgrade to airOS v7.1 or higher.

Rocket5ac Lite

Launched with PtP functionality, the Rocket5ac Lite adds PtMP functionality with a firmware upgrade to airOS v7.1 or higher. The Rocket5ac Lite is a cost-effective basestation for links experiencing low or moderate levels of interference.

Rocket5ac PtP

Featuring Ubiquiti's airPrism technology, the Rocket5ac PtP is designed for optimal PtP performance, although it can operate in PtMP mode. To take full advantage of its design and capabilities, deploy the Rocket5ac PtP for PtP links in noisy, high-density areas.

Rocket5ac PtMP

Also featuring Ubiquiti's airPrism technology, the Rocket5ac PtMP is designed for optimal PtMP performance, although it can operate in PtP mode. To take full advantage of its capabilities, deploy the Rocket5ac PtMP for PtMP links to airMAX ac CPEs located in crowded RF environments.

airMAX Technology Included

airMAXUnlike the standard WiFi 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 air time efficiency. It provides many magnitudes of performance improvements in latency, throughput, and scalability compared to all other outdoor systems in its class.

  • Intelligent QoS - Priority is given to voice/video seamless streaming.
  • Scalability - High capacity and scalability.
  • Long Distance - Capable of high-speed, carrier-class links.

Superior Performance

The next-generation airMAX ac technology boosts the advantages of our proprietary TDMA protocol.

Ubiquiti's airMAX engine with custom IC dramatically improves TDMA latency and network scalability. The custom silicon provides hardware acceleration capabilities to the airMAX scheduler, to support the high data rates and dense modulation used in airMAX ac technology.

Throughput Breakthrough

airMAX ac supports high data rates, which require dense modulation: 256QAM – a significant increase from 64QAM, which is used in airMAX.

With their use of proprietary airMAX ac technology, airMAX ac products supports up to 450+ Mbps real TCP/IP throughput – up to triple the throughput of standard airMAX products.
