Product Info

LiteBeam® AC Gen 2 – airMAX® ac CPE with Dedicated Management Radio

The LiteBeam® AC is an ultra-lightweight airMAX ac CPE device with incredible range and disruptive pricing.

Ubiquiti Networks launches the latest generation of airMAX® CPE (Customer Premises Equipment), the LiteBeam® 5AC Gen 2, with dedicated Wi-Fi management.

  • Lightweight, low-cost solution
  • Full adjustment flexibility
  • Quick assembly and installation


Management Wi-Fi Radio

The LiteBeam® AC integrates a separate Wi-Fi radio for fast and easy setup using your mobile device.

Improved Noise Immunity

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

Ubiquiti's InnerFeed® technology integrates the radio into the feedhorn of an antenna, so there is no need for a cable. This improves performance because it eliminates cable losses.

Featuring high performance and innovative mechanical design, the LiteBeam® 5AC Gen 2 is versatile and cost-effective to deploy.

Full Adjustment Flexibility

The LiteBeam® 5AC features a two-mount system that provides adjustment flexibility along both axes for versatile mounting options. The mounting system, coupled with the built-in bubble level, enables quick and easy alignment.

Improved Mounting and Surge Protection

Featuring enhanced protection against ESD events, the LiteBeam® AC offers a more robust mount with separate azimuth and elevation adjustments.

Now with airOS®8 and airView®

airOS®8 provides powerful features, including airMAX ac protocol support, real-time RF analytics, and an all-new design for enhanced usability.

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 MH, PtMP: 10/20/30/40 MHz
  • Automatic channel selection
  • Transmit power control: Automatic/Manual
  • Automatic Distance Selection (ACK Timing)
  • Strongest WPA2 security

High-Gain, Directional, 2x2 MIMO Antenna

The LiteBeam® AC provides 23 dBi of gain for long-distance connectivity and uses a directional antenna pattern for improved noise immunity.

Breakthrough Industrial Design

Featuring the freedom of three-axis alignment, the LiteBeam® AC fully assembles in seconds - no tools needed. Only a single wrench is required for pole-mounting.

Compact in Size, Light in Weight

A lightweight form factor contained within ultra-compact packaging, the LiteBeam® AC is ideal for shipping and logistics.
