Part Number Confusion

These two products are identical. Just a part number change. If you order a PBE-M5-400, we will ship an NBE-M5-400 until they run out of stock.

NanoBeam and PowerBeam Family

The airMAX™ NanoBeam™ and PowerBeam™ are the Ultimate CPE device family. All models use the airMAX™ TDMA protocol, feature innovative mechanical design and offer excellent noise immunity due a uniform bandwidth. To maximize deployment flexibility, the products are available in 2 form factors:
  • NanoBeam = all-in-one design, and
  • PowerBeam = dish reflector design,

PowerBeam™ dish reflector design

The PowerBeam dish reflector design advances the popular NanoBridge Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) with an improved mechanical design and InnerFeed™ technology that improves performance and simplify installation.

NanoBeam™ all-in-one design

The NanoBeam all-in-one design advances the popular NanoStation Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) with a simple, easy to deploy unit with a gimbal mounting system giving full elevation and azimuth adjustment.

Technical Description

With a choice of form factors, frequencies and performance characteristics, the NanoBeam/PowerBeam is designed for a wide array of deployment scenarios. [Edit: the following statement is not true as of Feb-2015 ... but it is Ubiquiti's intention that in a future software release this statement will be true: All NanoBeam/PowerBeam devices are compatible with airMAX™ base station products and use the powerful airOS™ software].


The NanoBeam/PowerBeam family is available in these models;

Compact and Robust Product Design

The PowerBeamM2 is a high performance end point station. Activity and signal strength LED's simplify installation. Enhanced RF and Ethernet ESD/Surge protection enables prolonged operation in harshest environments.

Breakthrough Wireless Performance, airMax and airControl Support

150 Mbps TCP/IP [?] and 20+ km Range

PowerBeam products utilise Ubiquiti's revolutionary AirMax™ TDMA protocol enabling scalable, carrier-class PtMP network performance. Additionally, AirControl™ application allows central management of 100's of devices. The unit is a complete package of:

  • 18 dBi gain antenna; both horizontal and vertical polarisations
  • MIMO Radio package running AirOS V5
  • Ethernet Interface, with POE input.
  • Adjustable Pole-mount.
  • 24 V POE Injector.

So that means:

  • No radio card / host board issues
  • No RF cable quality concerns
  • No mechanical stability concerns
  • No enclosure mounting requirement


  • External signal strength LED meter for antenna alignment
  • Integrated antenna
  • Robust weatherproof design
  • AirOS V5™ operating system that includes
    • powerful network management
    • gateway router or bridge functions, and
    • full device control

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.
