Powerful Rocket AC airMAX®ac BaseStation
Available in three models, the Rocket® ac features airMAX®ac technology for maximum performance in wireless links. The PtP (Point-to-Point) and PtMP (Point-to-MultiPoint) models also feature airPrism™ technology to further enhance 5 GHz performance in high-density areas.
Ubiquiti Networks has designed the first airMAX® ac radios for high performance and ease of installation. 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).

Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, Ubiquiti's Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) airMAX ac 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, so airMAX ac technology provides performance improvements in latency, noise immunity, scalability, and throughput compared to other outdoor systems in its class.
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
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 500+ Mbps (maximum 80 MHz channel width) real TCP/IP throughput - up to triple the throughput of standard airMAX products.
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.
5 GHz Frequency Band
This unlicensed band of plentiful spectrum works well for long-distance links. The Rocket5ac Lite covers the full-band 5-GHz spectrum.
Deliver high throughput over its wired connection
Passive Power over Ethernet (PoE)
24V Passive PoE functionality is included. Both power and data are carried over a single Ethernet cable to the Rocket ac. Use the included PoE Adapter or an optional PoE switch.
The Rocket5ac Lite offers up to 27 dBm of output power.
Plug and Play Integration
Every airMAX antenna has a built-in Rocket mount, so no tools are needed to install the Rocket ac. (airMAX ac antennas are recommended for optimal performance.)
