AirFiber - Good product - high price - a good entry price would be $ 650 each or $ 1000 for a complete link

I think the people of ubiquiti design the best ubiquiti product on the market , but at a high price, think in mine the storm season, is expensive to change a burned radio of this line ($1500 ) ,a good entry price would be $ 650 each or $ 1000 for a complete link,

ubiquiti should consider sales volume to grow more faster

The next cheapest 24ghz product is $5,000 and 1/7th the speed. Airfiber should fly off the shelf.
Keep to rockets if you can't keep radios from burning up.

I'm with ktc. The pricing is not too high, if this device can deliver what Ubiquiti promises.

Maybe you have to think about an insurance... Our insurance pays for damaged equipment and even our working hours.

High price?!?
Ubiquiti has the description right calling the pricing "disruptive".
The cheapest current option is the SAF freemile at $5k for 100mbps.
I pre-ordered 2 sets.

Price is reasonable. The only problem is the availability which is a general problem with UBNT products.
Rocket Titanium series has to be released asap to fix co-location intereference problems which nearly every WISP is struggling with because of the cheap plastic cases.

Rocket Titanium is also more important to us. In my opinion, the Law in Europe makes the AirFiber almost useless anyway.

1-2KM with throughput around 1Gbit is good enough for me.

At $3k a link Ubiquiti gave us one hell of a present! I can't wait get get a few links on my network. After speaking with the engineers at the conference I suspect this is only the beginning for this product line. I would suspect additional freqs which would allow longer distances.

Way to go guys:ubnt_banana:

$3000/link is too much?
the next closest solution in price is half the speed (320 Mbps one way max) and costs $10,000.

As my late brother once said, "no matter how hard you try, you just can NOT please everyone".
Even if Robert gave them away or paid you to take them someone would complain that the box is the wrong color.

Agreed. $3,000 is very reasonable for the speed.
The only question in my head is how do I stock a spare? Do I have to buy an entire set?

Yea, I was wondering if they were mated (high/low).
My guess is not, they are interchangeable since there is no cavity diplexer, hyper Duplex!

I'd guess for the first round you'd be
lucky to get another pair; they won't
be sold in singles for this batch. Dave
No disclaimer. Nothing to sell. I need to fix that.

We haven't seen the digital display yet so I can't tell you for sure.
The unit at the show had no internals :mansad:
