Ubiquiti Networks, a provider of innovative wireless technology, has announced the release of two new Unifi enterprise Wi-Fi access points. One uses “interference reducing” Multi-Lane RF technology in the 2.4 GHz band, while the other access point uses 5 GHz 802.11ac. Both can be used outdoors.
Ubiquiti’s new UniFi Outdoor AC device allow businesses to take advantage of the new 802.11ac WiFi standard, outdoors. The new 5 GHz standard delivers up to three times the speed with improved network robustness, reliability and RF bandwidth utilization.
- The UniFi Outdoor+ adds innovative Multi-Lane RF technology, designed for dense or “noisy” environments. It features:
- Ubiquiti’s proprietary Multi-Lane RF technology to increase throughput.
- Ubiquiti says it can double the throughput in dense or “noisy” areas, like stadiums, arenas, and conference centers.
- Single band 2.4Ghz, 2×2 MIMO access point. Supports 802.11n MIMO, with speeds of up to 300 Mbps and a range of up to 183 m (600 ft).
- Priced at $189 and available now.
- The UniFi Outdoor AC features:
- First to ship enterprise 802.11ac AP designed for outdoor deployments.
- Dual band, 3×3 MIMO access point provides aggregate throughput up to 1750Mbps.
- Priced at $489 and available now.
Both products are available at store.ubnt.com and via Ubiquiti distributors.
Ubiquiti’s airFiber, is a 24 GHz Point-to-Point radio for backhaul and building-to-building connections. Ubiquiti says it delivers true 1.4Gbps+ throughput with up to 13 km range. It features dual-independent 2×2 MIMO 24GHz hi-gain reflector antennas, and can operate in both FDD (Frequency Division Duplex) and HDD (Hybrid Division Duplex) modes. It costs $1500 per device.
