Product Info

LiteBeam® AC 2x2 MIMO airMAX® ac CPE with Dedicated Management Radio

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


The LiteBeam® is the latest evolution of a lightweight and compact, outdoor wireless broadband product from Ubiquiti Networks. Each of these models was designed to be an affordable cost/performance solution for long-distance, wireless broadband bridging. It operates in the worldwide, license-free 5 GHz frequency range with high-performance speeds.

The LiteBeam combines proprietary hardware and software technologies to deliver its breakthrough combination of throughput and range with cost-effective value.

The InnerFeed® technology (models LBE-M5-23 and LBE-5AC-23) integrates the entire radio system into the antenna feed, and our revolutionary airMAX TDMA protocol enhances network performance and scalability.

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


Integrated airMAX® Technology

Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, the exclusive Ubiquiti Networks® airMAX® Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) protocol allows each client to send and receive data using pre-designated time slots managed by an intelligent AP controller. This "time slot" method eliminates hidden node collisions and maximizes airtime efficiency.

Compared to other systems in its class, the LiteBeam products deliver superior performance in reduced latency, throughput, and scalability

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.
