Advanced RF Analytics
airMAX ac devices feature a multi-radio architecture to power an RF analytics engine. An independent processor on the PCBA powers a second, dedicated radio, which persistently analyzes the full 5 GHz spectrum and every received symbol to provide you an advanced RF analytics engine.
Real-Time Reporting
airOS 8 displays the following RF information:
• Persistent RF Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) constellation diagrams
• Signal, noise, and interference (SNI) diagrams
• Carrier to interference-plus-noise ratio (CINR) histograms
Spectral Analysis
airView allows you to identify noise signatures and plan your networks to minimize noise interference.
airView performs the following functions:
• Constantly monitors environmental noise
• Collects energy data points in real-time spectral views
• Helps optimize channel selection, network design, and wireless performance
airView runs in the background without disabling the wireless link, so there is no disruption to the network. In airView, there are three spectral views, each of which represents different data: waveform, waterfall, and ambient noise level. airView provides powerful spectrum analyzer functionality, eliminating the need to rent or purchase additional equipment for conducting site surveys.

Mobile App : UMobile App
The NanoStation AC loco integrates a separate Wi-Fi radio for fast and easy setup using your mobile device. Accessing airOS via Wi-Fi
The UMobile App provides instant accessibility to the airOS configuration interface and can be downloaded from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android). UMobile allows you to set up, configure, and manage your device, and offers various configuration options once you're connected or logged in.

airMAX ac

Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, Ubiquiti's Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) airMAX protocol allows each client to send and receive data using pre-designated time slots scheduled by an intelligent AP controller.
This time slot method eliminates hidden node collisions and maximizes airtime efficiency, so airMAX technology provides performance improvements in latency, noise immunity, scalability, and throughput compared to other outdoor systems in its class.
Intelligent QoS
Priority assigned to voice/video for seamless streaming.
High capacity and scalability.
Long Distance
Capable of high-speed, carrier-class links.
Enhanced Performance
The next-generation airMAX ac technology boosts the advantages of our proprietary TDMA protocol. Ubiquiti's airMAX engine with custom IC dramatically improves TDMA latency and network scalability. The custom silicon provides hardware acceleration capabilities to the airMAX scheduler, to support the high data rates and dense modulation used in airMAX ac technology.
Throughput Breakthrough
airMAX ac supports high data rates, which require dense modulation: 256QAM - a significant increase from 64QAM, which is used in airMAX. With their use of proprietary airMAX ac technology, airMAX ac products supports up to 450+ Mb/s real TCP/IP throughput - up to triple the throughput of standard airMAX products.

Versatile Mounting

The NanoStation AC loco 5 GHz airMAX ac Radio is suitable for indoor and outdoor installations.
Improved Surge Protection
The NanoStation AC loco utilizes the latest ESD protection to help protect against power surges.
Efficient Footprint
The radio and antenna are combined into a single body that takes up minimal space.
Quick Installation
Ploe mount ready. No fasteners are required for pole-mounting installation.
