The airFiber®24 is ideal for outdoor, PtP bridging and carrier-class network backhauls.
airFiber AF-24/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-24/AF-24HD has better
noise figure and higher transmit power efficiency.
Two models deliver superior speed with spectral efficiency in
the worldwide, license-free, 24 GHz radio band.
The standard model, AF-24, delivers up to 1.4+ Gbps
throughput at a range of up to 13+ km.
The heavy-duty model, AF-24HD, 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.
airFiber 24 is a truly revolutionary Point-to-Point wireless
platform from Ubiquiti Networks. Housed in a compact, highly efficient
form factor, airFiber delivers amazing wireless gigabit+ performance, low latency, and long range.
airFiber ushers in a new era in price-disruptive wireless technology ideal for carrier backhaul, building-to-building enterprise use, or public safety applications.
Every detail of airFiber was designed and engineered by the Ubiquiti R&D Team. From the silicon chip up to the innovative split-antenna architecture, the Ubiquiti R&D Team created airFiber to deliver superior throughput with efficiency.
airFiber was purpose-built to create a high performance backhaul.
Plug and Play Deployment Based on Ubiquiti’s innovative and intuitive airOS®, the airFiber Configuration Interface enables quick deployment.
With installation efficiency in mind, the mechanical design allows easy installation by one person. A two-person installation crew can effectively install and align an airFiber link.
To fine-tune the alignment, the received signal levels can be
conveniently accessed via any of these methods:

Deploy the 2.4, 3, or 5 GHz model that meets your specific spectrum requirements, anywhere around the world. The airFiber X features multiple channel width options to suit your deployment needs – up to 11 different channel sizes available for the AF-2X or AF-3X.
Channel width flexibility allows you to independently configure TX and RX channel frequencies and place them anywhere within the radio band to avoid local interference. You also have the ability to program different uplink and downlink duty cycles to support asymmetric traffic requirements.
The 2.4 GHz frequency band
is free to use, worldwide; and
with its proprietary protocol,
the AF‑2X increases both range

Ubiquiti Networks introduces the proprietary INVICTUS™ core communications processing engine. The speed, power, and efficiency of this integrated circuit enhances the performance of airFiber AF5/AF5U.
airFiber AF5/AF5U features 1 MHz center channel resolution with market leading Power Envelope Tracking technology. airFiber AF5/AF5U accurately and continuously controls transmit power relative to the band edge. The power level automatically tracks to optimize performance near band edges, allowing you to choose the part of the band with the least interference.
Newly developed for airFiber AF5/AF5U, the patent-pending xRT feature uses an innovative, adaptive multi-channel coding scheme to enhance radio transceiver performance, thereby maximizing your link budget and spectrum utilization – while still maintaining regulatory compliance. This results in links that can span distances from 10 m up to 100+ km.
The unique sliding-clamp design of airFiber AF5/AF5U allows mounting hardware to be pre‑assembled prior to installation – no more dropped screws at the top of the tower. As an added convenience, the drop‑in cradle mount design allows the installer to attach mounting hardware to the pole without having to support the weight of the airFiber radio during installation.
Introduced on airFiber AF5/AF5U, the Radio Alignment Display (RAD) makes aiming quicker and easier. The dual, calibrated signal strength indicators display the actual signal strength on the local and remote airFiber radios in real time. The comprehensive array of radio status indicators display the following:
Using a common GPS timing reference, the airFiber X radios work cohesively to deliver powerful, multi-Gigabit bridging performance for PtP links.
Quickly mount multiple airFiber X radios on existing airFiber dish antennas for Plug and Play installation. You can use radio channels of different sizes – even adjacent channels with no guard band – and place them anywhere within the radio band.
Multiple airFiber X radios mounted on a single dish antenna maximizes throughput and capacity in a clean, compact tower footprint, minimizing tower costs.
Multiple airFiber X radios with multiple carriers on multiple frequency bands provide the ultimate noise immunity and link redundancy performance.
