Ubiquiti Rocket 5AC airPrism Basestation
Ubiquiti Rocket 5AC airPrism Basestation
Ubiquiti Rocket 5AC airPrism Basestation (R5AC-PRISM), airMAX AC Multi-Point radio with AirPRISM technology, 27dBm, Gigabit LAN, 2x RSMA, 5GHz 2X2 802.11ac, improved SNR, Removed Interference
The Rocket5ac Prism is designed to deliver maximum spectral efficiency and throughput.
5 GHz Frequency Band With plenty of available spectrum, this unlicensed band works well for long‑distance links. The Rocket5ac Prism features full-band 5 GHz coverage and maximizes output power for the US market, meeting strict OOBE requirements.
airView Use the real-time spectrum analyzer so you can identify noise signatures and design your wireless links to minimize noise interference.
High Performance To take full advantage of its design and capabilities, deploy the Rocket5ac Prism for PtP or PtMP links in high RF noise environments.
airPrism Sector Antenna You can mount three Rocket5ac Prism radios on the airPrism 5 GHz 3x30° HD Sector Antenna, model AP‑5AC‑90‑HD, for PtMP links. Each Rocket radio corresponds with a specific 30° beamwidth and independently transmits and receives.
EMI-Shielded Metal Housing Helps protect the Rocket5ac Prism against electromagnetic interference.
Gigabit Ethernet Delivers high throughput over its wired connection.
Passive Power over Ethernet (PoE) 24V Passive PoE functionality is included. Both power and data are carried over a single Ethernet cable to the Rocket ac. Use the included PoE Adapter or an optional PoE switch.
Plug and Play Integration Every airMAX antenna has a built-in Rocket mount, so no tools are needed to install the Rocket5ac Prism. (airMAX ac antennas are recommended for optimal performance.)
To enhance airMAX ac performance, Ubiquiti Networks introduces our patented airPrism technology, which is featured on the Rocket5ac Prism, model R5AC-PRISM.
High data rates require a high Signal‑to‑Noise Ratio (SNR), which is challenging to achieve, especially in noisy, high‑density areas.
Integrated into Ubiquiti’s custom silicon, airPrism technology creates a high SNR by isolating signals within the operating channel and rejecting interference using specialized circuitry, the High‑Selectivity Receiver (HSR).
Depending on the product model and operating mode, available channel widths may include 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and/or 80 MHz.
Theoretically APs operate on different channels; however, because of the wider channel bandwidths, there can be overlap in spectrum usage.
airPrism technology removes up to an additional 30+ dB of adjacent channel interference through the active filtering design, so an airMAX ac AP with airPrism technology can provide significantly greater performance than a typical AP.
Facilitates AP Co-Location
Co-location is vital in many scenarios. For example, a WISP may have limited tower space, so it must co‑locate all APs within that allotted footprint. Shielding and other means can lessen interference but may be impractical.
By deploying airMAX ac APs with airPrism technology, you can co‑locate APs and enhance the overall performance of your wireless network.
