Ubiquiti airMAX Rocket M5 5GHz MIMO Wireless Bridge/Base Station (ROCKETM5)


In stock

Product Description

The Ubiquiti Rocket M5 MIMO is a 5GHz MIMO Point-to-Point wireless bridge/ base station. It has excellent features including 50+km range performance and breakthrough speed (150+Mbps real TCP/IP). It is a rugged, hi-power, linear, 2×2 MIMO radio with enhanced receiver performance.

Ubiquiti Rocket M5 MIMO Key Features

  • Scalability: 300+ subs per sectored base station
  • Latency: Latency remains low for voice and video applications as network scales
  • Speed: 150Mbps+ PtMP performance
  • Range: 50km+ outdoor range

The Ubiquiti RocketM5 MIMO can be paired with your choice of AirMax BaseStation or Ubiquiti Rocket Antennas as it combines the “brains” in one robust unit. This versatility gives network architects unparalleled flexibility and convenience.

The Rocket is available in several frequency models: 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz, 3/3.65 GHz, and 5 GHz, to support your specific application. You have the freedom to locate, deploy, and operate the Rocket in these unlicensed bands (subject to local country regulations). The Rocket allows for a high degree of flexibility in configuring channel bandwidths: 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 20, 25, 30, and/or 40 MHz, depending on the specific product model and local country regulations.

Plug and Play Integration
Rocket radios and airMAX antennas have been designed to seamlessly work together. Every airMAX Sector, RocketDish™, Omni, or Yagi antenna has a built-in Rocket mount, so installation requires no special tools. Snap the Rocket securely into place and mount the antenna; then you have the optimal combination of Rocket radio and airMAX antenna for your PtP or PtMP application.

airMAX Technology Included
Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, Ubiquiti’s Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) airMAX 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 maximises airtime efficiency. It provides many magnitudes of performance improvements in latency, throughput, and scalability compared to all other outdoor systems in its class.
