Product Info

airFiber®5 – 5 GHz Full Duplex Point-to-Point Gigabit Radio

The airFiber®5 is purpose-built for outdoor, PtP bridging and carrier-class network backhauls.

Revolutionary Wireless Technology

Introducing airFiber®, a truly revolutionary Point-to-Point wireless platform from Ubiquiti Networks. Housed in a compact, highly efficient form factor, airFiber delivers amazing wireless gigabit+ performance, low latency, and long range. airFiber ushers in a new era in price-disruptive wireless technology ideal for carrier backhaul, building-to-building enterprise use, or public safety applications.

Efficient by Design

Every detail of airFiber was designed and engineered by the Ubiquiti R&D Team. From the silicon chip up to the innovative split-antenna architecture, the Ubiquiti R&D Team created airFiber to deliver superior throughput with efficiency. airFiber was purpose-built to create a high performance backhaul.

Plug and Play Deployment

Based on Ubiquiti's innovative and intuitive airOS®, the airFiber Configuration Interface enables quick deployment. With installation efficiency in mind, the mechanical design allows easy installation by one person. A two-person installation crew can effectively install and align an airFiber link.
