AirFiber 5 GHz Full Duplex Point-to-Point Gigabit Radio

The airFiber 5 is purpose-built for outdoor, PtP bridging and carrier-class network backhauls. Operating in the 5GHz band, AF-5U-US airFiber 5 builds on the innovations in airFiber 24 to enable speeds up to 1Gbps and introduces new extended Range Technology (xRT) to provide 100+Km maximum range.

 With a dual-antenna architecture, 2x2 MIMO functionality separates the transmit and receive data streams allowing for increased bandwidth and a more reliable connection. Setup of this PtP Gigabit radio is simple thanks to the airFiber Configuration Interface which can be installed by a single network tech. Once installed, 12 dedicated LED indicators make it easy to see the status of various aspects of the network including data port link/activity, data port speed, management port link/activity, and much more.


  • Innovative Antenna Design

The high-isolation, dual-antenna design is ideal for robust performance in the harshest RF noise environments.

  • Revolutionary Performance

Surpassing conventional wired backhauls, the airFiber®5 delivers real throughput of up to 1.2+ Gbps.

  • Long-Range Links: 100+ km

Designed to be a high-performance backhaul, the airFiber 5 performs at a range of up to 100+ km.

  • Low-Latency Carrier Backhaul

The airFiber 5 supports FDD (Frequency Division Duplexing) in full-duplex mode for < 1 ms latency, resulting in increased efficiency for carrier-class network backhauls.

  • 5 GHz Unlicensed Band

The airFiber 5 operates in worldwide, license-free, 5 GHz frequencies. Users can deploy airFiber5 almost anywhere they choose (subject to local country regulations).
