New LTU AirFibers shown at Wispalooza Show !
Description

There's plenty of exciting new AirFiber being shown in the Ubiquiti booth at Wispalooza.

 

Both new radios and a new dish.

I'll go over the new LTU radios first.   The AF5X-HD has been mentioned and will be available in the beta store this week.   Below we have the one you can buy on the beta store on the right, and a clear plasic version that shows the amazing new LTU circuit board on the left.

Below is a closeup of the new circuit board through the clear plastic case.  The AF5X-HD has both a data port and management port just like the regular AF5X.  Also a GPS port on top.

The big take aways about the AF5X-HD is it uses much less power than the regular AF5X, handles 10,20,30,40,50,60,80 and 100mhz channels.  And does 10X very easily and even 12x in the future.  And of course it uses the exciting new LTU technology.

You'll see additional stories about the performance improvement once they hit the beta store.

 

So the other new LTU radio being shown is an LTU version of the PrismStation.  Here's one mated to a 30 degree clear plastic horn.  It can of course be connected to any of the existing horns including the sector horns to use it as an AP.

And a close up of one with a clear plastic case showing the amazing LTU circuit board.

As you can sort of see from the photos, the LTU version of the PrismStation/IsoStation has a frosted plasic top with signal lights. Its 100% interchangeable with the PrismStation and IsoStation.  So switching between them is just unsnapping one and twistings the other in. 

 

The clear plastic new LTU horn radio is also being shown mated to a new dish, and I'll talk about that in a separate story.

And there is also a clear plastic version of the AF11-FX on display.

I would love to know the roadmap / plans for the LTU chips in the AF24's?  Also I assume its just a mater of time before the AF11FX's are upgraded to it?  right now only getting 56mhz on a 80mhz chan is such a waste.   

 

Thanks for all the info!

Yeah, but wouldn't a =<10 degree beamwidth be more optimal for a CPE?

@webnx The first LTU products will be only in 5ghz.

@rebelwireless  Yes, we are going to have several CPE antennas available starting with the new 500mm dish to help with narrower patterns and better link budgets on the CPE.

@UBNT-Gary will these be slanted as airfiber or h/v as airmax ?

@wire-less   You can connected a AF5X-HD to a slant AF30-S45 dish, a RocketDish 34 with a slant conversion, or any dual poll H/V dish.  With the connectorized AF5X-HD, the dish determines the polarity.

@wire-less  Claude is correct on the XHD.  The Iso form-factor PtMP CPE is targeted as a V-H design though we have built slant variants as well.

You can slant an iso, add weep holes to the horn where appropriate. Not a perfect solution, door side down.
