Ubiquiti Networks introduces the airFiber AF-4X, Ubiquiti’s first licensed spectrum radio designed for the public safety sector. It meets the growing need of broadband capacity and optimizes use of the 4.9 GHz radio band with its industry-leading spectral efficiency and TDD throughput. The AF-4X allows you to customize airFiber backhaul links or upgrade existing Rocket® Point-to-Point (PtP) links.
Deploy the high-performance and reliable AF-4X for municipal applications, including police, fire, and emergency medical services.
Ubiquiti’s INVICTUS custom silicon and proprietary radio architecture are designed specifically for long-distance, outdoor wireless applications.
Our INVICTUS core communications processing engine surpasses all of the limitations inherent to generic Wi-Fi chips to provide superior performance, long-range capability, and higher delivered throughput. The airFiber X features industry-leading spectral efficiency of up to 17.1 Mbps/MHz, line-rate data packet processing of up to 525 Mbps of real data throughput, and innovative xtreme Range Technology (xRT™) for up to 200+ km in range.
The AF-4X covers the 4.9 GHz spectrum for public safety. Additional frequencies, from 4.7 GHz to 4.9 GHz, are supported in Europe and other regions (subject to local country regulations). The AF-4X uses a proprietary radio communications protocol with AES-128 encryption to help ensure communication channels are secure.
The AF-4X is designed to provide the highest TDD throughput and lowest latency available using proprietary Hybrid Division Duplexing (HDD) technology.
The AF-4X supports up to 11 different channel width sizes to suit your deployment needs. You can configure independent TX and RX channel frequencies and place them anywhere within the radio band, and the channel centers are selectable in 1 MHz increments.
You also have the ability to program different uplink and downlink duty cycles to support asymmetric traffic requirements.
Pair an airFiber X antenna with an airFiber X radio to create the endpoint of a high-performance, Point-to-Point (PtP) bridge or network backhaul.
The airFiber X antenna delivers 2x2, dual-polarity performance. On the right is one example of how the airFiber X antenna with an airFiber X radio can be deployed as endpoints in a backhaul link to deliver bandwidth from a WISP network out to a neighborhood tower. From there, an airMAX® Sector antenna with a Rocket® radio delivers bandwidth to the WISP’s customers.
Incorporating a dish reflector design for excellent beam directivity, the airFiber X antennas feature robust mechanical design using industrial-strength hardware for outdoor application use.
airFiber X antennas and airFiber X radios have been designed to seamlessly work together. Every airFiber X antenna has a built-in airFiber X radio mount, so installation requires no special tools. Snap the airFiber X radio securely into place and mount the antenna; you then have the optimal combination of airFiber X antenna and airFiber X radio for your PtP application.
