Ubiquiti Networks® has designed the first airMAX® ac radio with high quality, high performance, and ease of installation in mind

You have the freedom to deploy the Rocket™ ac anywhere in the world, and it allows for a high degree of flexibility in configuring channel bandwidths (subject to local country regulations).

The Rocket ac is available as two models, the Rocket5ac Lite and the Rocket5ac PtP. Both include airMAX ac technology, and the Rocket5ac PtP also features airPrism™ technology to further enhance its performance. Pair the Rocket ac with airMAX ac antennas for optimal performance:

  • PtP backhaul Rocket5ac Lite or Rocket5ac PtP with the RocketDish™ ac
  • PtMP links Rocket5ac Lite* with the airMAX ac Sector

* PtMP functionality is available with a firmware upgrade to airOS v7.1 or higher.

Sporting an all-new design for improved usability, airOS® v7 is the revolutionary operating system for Ubiquiti® airMAX ac products.

Powerful Wireless Features:

  • airMAX ac Protocol Support

  • Long-Range PtP Link Mode

  • Selectable Channel Width

  • PtP: 10/20/30/40/50/60/80 MHz

  • PtMP: 10/20/30/40 MHz

  • Automatic Channel Selection

  • TX Power Control: Auto/Manual

  • Automatic Distance Selection (ACK Timing)

  • Strongest WPA2 Security

Usability Enhancements:

  • Dynamic Configuration Changes2

  • Instant Input Validation

  • HTML5 Technology

  • Optimization for Mobile Devices

  • Detailed Device Statistics

  • Diagnostic Tools, including Ethernet Cabling Test, RF Diagnostics, and airView® Spectrum Analyzer

airMAX Technology Included:

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.

Scalability High capacity and scalability.

Long Distance Capable of high‑speed, carrier-class links.

Superior 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 for 802.11ac 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+ Mbps real TCP/IP throughput – up to triple the throughput of standard airMAX products.
