Need two to make a link

The price shown is for one unit. Two units are needed to make a link.

Calculated (Theoretical) Distance limits in Australia

These distance limits are calculated from the Ubiquiti AirFiber Datasheet, and the legal EIRP limits set by the ACMA.
Max. Data Rate
Max. Distance (km)
No Rain6mm/hr12mm/hr
1500 1.6 1.4 1.2
1000 3.1 2.4 1.9
500 6.2 3.9 3.0
250 7.8 4.6 3.4

Reported Real World Links

The table below lists some real world results reported by customers. In each case we have verified that the links were not operating beyond the Australian 20 dBm EIRP limit. As you can see, performance has exceeded expectations. This can be explained by the receiver system (Antenna gain and/or sensitivity) being better than official specifications.

Notes and Assumptions

  1. Operating at 24.2 GHz
  2. Max Data Rate is the FDD rate. Full duplex, aggregate of traffic in both directions
  3. ACMA EIRP limit at 24 GHz is 100mW (20 dBm)
  4. Calculations done with rain fade values of:
    • No Rain
    • 1dB/km rain fade (= 6 mm/hr) (= 1/4" per hr)
    • 2dB/km rain fade (= 12 mm/hr) (= 1/2" per hr)

POE Surge Protectors

From the airFiber User Guide:
  Note: For added protection, we recommend installing two GigE PoE surge protectors. Install the first surge protector within one meter of the airFiber DATA port, and install the second surge protector at the ingress point of the location housing the wired network equipment.  
We recommend this GbE POE Surge Protector and 1m cable for use with the airFiber.

GbE POE Surge Protector
1m POE cable

Power Over Ethernet Cable Lengths

You can have POE cable runs up to 100m using Ubiquiti TOUGHCable-Pro or TOUGHCable-Carrier.

You may also want to add the following products to your purchase.

Externally Rated CAT5 Cable

Grounding: It is imperative that this device is installed with a grounded POE cable. Failure to do so can result in the ethernet interface failing in an electrical (lightning) storm. Failure to provide proof that a suitable cable was used will result in any warranty claim being void.
