The DLB Propeller 5 is a new generation wireless device designed for client and small scale base-station applications. It has a unique mechanism to do mechanical antenna parameter shifting and achieve the best performance in different operating modes (patent pending).

This product is equipped with a high output power MIMO radio (up to 28 dBm) and 15 dBi dual-polarized antenna which make the device ideal for short to medium range wireless communication.

Dual firmware image will allow safe software upgrades. The device will restart using the prior firmware in the event of an upgrade failure.

The DLB Propeller 5 uses an advanced and feature-rich operating system which supports bridge/router and repeater modes (repeater mode allows the product to operate as an access point and as a station at the same time). The DLB OS also supportsLigoWave’s iPoll2 (proprietary wireless communication technology) to increase throughput, packet per second rate and stabilize latency on your network. It has a user-friendly HTML 5 based GUI with instant reconfi guration without a reboot, includes useful installation tools (site survey, delayed reboot, spectrum analyzer, ping, traceroute) and is compatible with our standalone and cloud based Wireless Network Management System (WNMS) - one of the most advanced management tools on the market.

The DLB Propeller 5 can be rotated to the horizontal orientation for use as a client device. This greatly reduces interference, as the main noise source is on the azimuth. Alignment is easy as only left and right movement of the device is necessary (no need to move it upwards or downwards as the antenna angle on the elevation is wide).


The DLB OS is a highly functional and easy to use operating system. This powerful and fl exible operating system ensures fl awless operation of all DLB hardware devices and effortless setup for those deploying the networks.

WNMS is a FREE enterprise grade Wireless Network Management System. A single software solution simplifies a large number of management and monitoring tasks for network administrators. LigoWave’s comprehensive network management system supports several thousands of nodes. Multiple networks may be maintained and monitored using one server. A rich feature set helps to diagnose network problems effectively, visualize networks on a map, perform scheduled firmware upgrades automatically, track states of devices, get failure alerts, and collect statistics. The Web-based system environment supports multiuser accounts. Several administrators may manage different networks on the same server, without having access to each other’s equipment. WNMS is available as a stand-alone version for Linux and Windows servers, as a cloud-based system and as a mobile application for Android devices.
