The airFiber AF-24HD provides a breakthrough in 24 GHz backhaul performance. Systems for millimeter-wave frequencies typically experience RF losses when part of the RF is lost in the switches and filters. The Ubiquiti R&D team eliminated such RF losses with separate yet integrated TX and RX antennas, so the link budget is robust and the airFiber AF-24HD has better noise figure and higher transmit power efficiency.
The heavy-duty AF-24HD delivers superior speed with spectral efficiency in the worldwide, license-free, 24 GHz radio band. It provides more throughput at up to 2 Gbps and increased range of up to 20+ km. It also includes a more rugged exterior with a metal reflector, to protect against nature’s harshest elements.
The INVICTUS custom silicon dramatically improves wireless performance. The AF-24HD model supports the dense modulation rates, up to 256QAM, that are required for high data rates, up to 2 Gbps. It features the most powerful automatic compensation for path loss degradation due to rain fade, so it provides the best range among 24 GHz products and allows for constellation threshold extension.
Two units are required for a complete link.
