Ubiquiti 24GHz airFiber® 24HD Wireless: 2.0 Gbps w/ 20+ km Range
The airFiber® 24HD is for effortless high speed 2.0 Gbps outdoor, PtP bridging and carrier-class network backhauls sent and received through otherwise busy airwaves on the international 24GHz Unlicensed Band. Featuring INVICTUS™ custom silicon with 2+ million pps, this is ideal for outdoor, PtP bridging and backhaul applications requiring maximum performance.
Spectral Efficiency Breakthrough
airFiber® implements the most efficient use of the 24 GHz unlicensed-band spectrum. By employing a unique dual-antenna design and proprietary self-interference cancellation algorithms, airFiber extracts more usable channels out of the available spectrum than any other comparable radio system.
Two airFiber 24 GHz Models
Two models deliver superior speed with spectral efficiency in the worldwide, license-free, 24 GHz radio band.
- The heavy-duty AF-24HD model provides the most throughput at up to 2 Gbps with increased ranges up to 20+ km for the fastest, longest 24GHz backhaul performances
- The standard AF-24 model delivers up to 1.5+ Gbps throughput at a range of up to 13+ km for shorter hops at reduced data rates

Best-in-Class Performance and Range
Our INVICTUS custom silicon dramatically improves wireless performance. The AF‑24HD model supports the dense modulation rates, up to 256QAM, that are required for high data rates, up to 2 Gbps. The airFiber AF-24/AF-24HD features the most powerful automatic compensation for path loss degradation due to rain fade, so it provides the best range among 24 GHz products and allows for constellation threshold extension.
Upgraded Robust Mechanical Assembly
An independent lab has tested the airFiber mechanical assembly to meet MIL‑STD‑810G, a rigorous United States MIL‑STD (Military Standard) that defines a variety of challenging environmental conditions. The Mechanical Assembly has also undergone vibration testing using an extended version of IEC 60068‑2‑6, an environmental standard of the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission).
The AF-24HD also includes a more rugged exterior with a metal reflector, to protect against nature's harshest elements 24/7/365, for always up reliability that you can depend on.
Featuring the world'’'s best unlicensed band spectral efficiency at 15.9 bps/Hz, the airFiber® 24 HD supports the dense modulation rates, up to 256QAM, that are required for high data rates, up to 2 Gbps!
Proven Links out to 20+ km
The airFiber® 24 HD features the most powerful automatic compensation for path loss degradation due to rain fade, so it provides the best range; up to 20+ km, among 24 GHz products and allows for constellation threshold extension.
Low-Latency Carrier Backhaul
The airFiber® 24 HD supports FDD (Frequency Division Duplexing) in full-duplex mode for 0.2 ms latency, resulting in increased efficiency for carrier-class network backhauls.
24GHz Unlicensed Band
The airFiber® 24HD operates in worldwide, license-free, 24GHz frequencies. Users can deploy airFiber 24HD almost anywhere they choose*

Sub-ms Latency w/ Best 24 GHz Band & 15.9 bps/Hz Spectral Efficiency
Innovative Design, RF Agility
airFiber provides unparalleled flexibility, allowing independently selectable, asymmetric TX/RX channel bandwidths and selectable TX/RX frequencies wherever spectrum is available and without being locked into predetermined FDD channel pairs.
Split-frequency TDD operation facilitates maximum versatility in avoiding interference in today's crowded bands.
Channel width flexibility allows you to independently configure TX and RX channel widths (10/20/30/40/50 MHz) and place them anywhere within the radio band to suit your link.
Powerful Multi-Mode Duplexing
airFiber® supports all duplexing modes: TDD, FDD, and Ubiquiti's patented HDD; no other radio system provides this level of flexibility.
Ubiquiti's proprietary protocol enables time-synchronous packet transmission, resulting in the lowest possible, sub ms latency – vital for backhaul performance.
Line-Rate Packet Processing
Ubiquiti's custom silicon, our proprietary INVICTUS™ core communications processing engine, powers airFiber® to process 2+ million packets per second.
Clean Power Output
Using digital pre-distortion compensation and multi-IFFT processing, airFiber® delivers the cleanest output spectrum for unlicensed-band radio systems. This reduces the potential impact on the RF noise environment and allows for the use of higher-order modulation, such as 1024QAM.
20 Gbps (Aggregate) Performance
airFiber® operates as a high-performance wireless backhaul; its GPS-synchronized framing support enables up to 20 Gbps of aggregate throughput across thousands of base stations.
