Model: UBB -US
The UniFi Building-to-Building Bridge, model UBB, is the ideal solution for high-throughput connectivity with a range of up to 500 m. Integration with the UniFi Controller makes bridging two networks seamless.
Comprised of two pre-paired endpoint devices, the UBB delivers a Point-to-Point (PtP) link – up to 1.7+ Gbps bi-directional – using 802.11ad technology on the low-interference 60 GHz radio band. For backup, a 5 GHz radio using 802.11ac technology is available.
The 60 GHz band attenuates quickly due to atmospheric absorption. When a 60 GHz radio – such as the UBB – uses a highly directional antenna, inteference from other directions is also attenuated. The 60 GHz band thus offers extremely high transmission capacity as a wireless wire.
60 GHz is highly directional and any obstacle in the line of sight – even rain – can drop signal levels.
To maintain connectivity, the UBB can fail over to the 5 GHz radio. The 5 GHz radio band propagates better and uses radio wave reflections and refractions more effectively, although it offers lower maximum throughput.
Setup is quick and easy: the UBB radios are pre-paired out of the box so you can use the UniFi app for simultaneous adoption. The UniFi Controller software enables intuitive management of individual UniFi devices and site wide deployments.
The UBB is designed with a compact form factor for discreet integration into any environment.
The UBB pivots on its ball joint 3-axis mount for easy aiming.
No fasteners are required for pole-mounting, and a single wall fastener (not included) is required for wall-mounting. A wall mount kit, model NBE-WMK, is available as an optional accessory to enhance stability.
The UniFi Network Controller can provision UniFi devices, map out networks, and quickly manage system traffic. Important network details are logically organized for a simplified, yet powerful, interface.
From a single pane of glass, view network topology and configuration, real-time statistics, and debugging metrics. Monitor your network’s vitals and make on-the-fly adjustments as needed.
Deep Packet Inspection
Ubiquiti’s proprietary Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine includes the latest application identification signatures to track which applications (and IP addresses) are using the most bandwidth.
The UniFi Network Controller provides configurable reporting and analytics to manage large user populations and expedite troubleshooting. Advanced search and sorting capabilities make network management more efficient.
A single controller running in the cloud can manage multiple sites: multiple, distributed deployments and multi-tenancy for managed service providers. Each site is logically separated and has its own configuration, maps, statistics, guest portal, and administrator accounts.
Detect and troubleshoot nearby interference, analyze radio frequencies, and choose optimal AP placement. The auto-optimize feature configures the UBB with best practice settings, and the included radio AI capability optimizes channel selection using a genetic algorithm.
Advanced RF Performance
RF performance and configuration features include spectral analysis, airtime fairness, band steering, and cell-size tuning.
Create multiple LAN and WLAN groups and assign them to the respective UniFi devices and VLAN tags.
Upload a map or use Google Maps to represent the areas where your UniFi devices are located. Use the predictive map feature to get a preview of coverage, and to help you avoid dead spots.
Wireless Uplink functionality enables wireless connectivity between APs for extended range, wireless adoption of APs in their default state, and real-time changes to network topology.
Configure custom settings, including authentication, Hotspot setup, and the option to use your own external portal server.
