airMAX®ac products offer improved latency, noise immunity, scalability and significantly increased throughput performance.
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.
New Breakthrough RF Performance Antennas
The innovative airMAX®ac RocketDish™and sector antennas feature significant advances in scalability, noise isolation, and beam performance to complement the airMAX®ac Rocket™radios.
Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Technology
Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, airMAX®allows each client to send and receive data using pre-designated timeslots.
Up to 100 airMAX®stations can be connected to an airMAX base station; four airMAX stations are shown to illustrate the general concept.
A Wireless Channel’s Designated Time Slots
The 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.
Packet prioritization - Intelligent QoS
Priority is given to voice/video for seamless streaming.
An active radio frequency filter provides advanced channel filtering for the noisiest RF environments and is integrated into Ubiquiti's custom silicon.
Improves SNR for High Data Rates
To support high data rates, which requires dense modulation (256QAM), Ubiquiti Networks introduces our patented airPrism™ technology. airPrism* creates a high Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) by isolating signals within the operating channel and rejecting interference using specialized circuitry, the High-Selectivity Receiver (HSR).
Removes Adjacent Channel Interference
Innovative airPrism™technology removes up to an additional 30+ dB of adjacent channel interference through the active filtering design. airMAX® APs operating in high-density environments with airPrism technology can achieve up to triple the performance of a typical AP in a high-density environment.
Enhances Co-Location of Access Points
Co-location is vital in many scenarios. For example, a WISP or operator may have limited tower space, so it must co-locate all APs within that allotted footprint. Shielding and other means can lessen noise but may be impractical. By deploying airMAX®APs with airPrism™technology, a WISP or operator can effectively co-locate APs.
*airPrism on select models only
Ubiquiti’s airPrism™technology provides breakthrough radio selectivity in unlicensed wireless band performance. Our patented airPrism technology isolates signals within the operating channel and rejects interference to improve wireless performance in noisy, high-density areas.
Note: airPrism is available on select models only.
