Product Overview

NanoBeam AC Gen2: High-Performance airMAX® ac Bridge

Incorporating innovative industrial design with proprietary airMAX® ac technology, the NanoBeam® AC is ideal for CPE deployments requiring maximum performance from the smallest possible footprint.

Improved Noise Immunity

The NanoBeam 5AC Gen 2 directs RF energy in a tighter beamwidth. With the focus in one direction, the NanoBeam 5AC Gen 2 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.

Integrated Design

The radio and antenna are combined to create a more efficient and compact CPE. The NanoBeam 5AC Gen 2 gets maximum gain out of the smallest footprint. Providing high performance and an innovative form factor, the NanoBeam 5AC Gen 2 is versatile and cost-effective to deploy.


airOS® 8 is the revolutionary operating system for Ubiquiti® airMAX ac products.

Powerful Wireless Features

• Access Point PtMP airMAX Mixed Mode.
• airMAX ac Protocol Support.
• Long-Range Point-to-Point (PtP) Link Mode.
• Selectable Channel Width:
- PtP: 10/20/30/40/50/60/80 MHz.
- PtMP: 10/20/30/40 MHz.
• Automatic Channel Selection.
• Transmit Power Control: Automatic/Manual.
• Automatic Distance Selection (ACK Timing).
• Strongest WPA2 Security.

Usability Enhancements

• airMagic® Channel Selection Tool.
• Redesigned User Interface.
• Dynamic Configuration Changes.
• Instant Input Validation.
• HTML5 Technology.
• Optimisation for Mobile Devices.
• Detailed Device Statistics.
• Comprehensive Array of Diagnostic Tools, including RF Diagnostics and airView® Spectrum Analyser.

Advanced RF Analytics

airMAX ac devices feature a multi-radio architecture to power a revolutionary RF analytics engine. An independent processor on the PCBA powers a second, dedicated radio, which persistently analyses the full 5 GHz spectrum and every received symbol to provide you with the most advanced RF analytics in the industry.

Real-Time Reporting

airOS 8 displays the following RF information:

• Persistent RF Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) constellation diagrams.
• Signal, Noise, and Interference (SNI) diagrams.
• Carrier to Interference-plus-Noise Ratio (CINR) histograms.

Spectral Analysis

airView allows you to identify noise signatures and plan your networks to minimise noise interference. airView performs the following functions:

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

UMobile App

The NanoBeam 5AC Gen 2 integrates a separate Wi-Fi radio for fast and easy setup using your mobile device.

Accessing airOS via Wi-Fi

The U®Mobile App provides instant accessibility to the airOS configuration interface and can be downloaded from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play™ (Android). UMobile allows you to set up, configure, and manage the NanoBeam 5AC Gen 2 and offers various configuration options once you're connected or logged in.


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 maximises airtime efficiency, so airMAX technology provides performance improvements in latency, noise immunity, scalability, and throughput compared to other outdoor systems in its class.

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.

• Uniform Beamwidth Maximises Noise Immunity.
• Dedicated Wi-Fi Radio for Management.
• airMAX ac Processor for Superior Performance.
• Capable of speed over 450Mbps**, and ranges in excess of 15km**.
• PoE Powered via Gigabit Ethernet Port.
• Includes 24V, 0.5A Gigabit PoE Adapter.
