New LTU AirFibers shown at Wispalooza Show !

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.

How much does "much less" mean? like 50% ?

@martini21  When doing quick battery lifetime calcs in my head, I do use 50%, but let me look at the Quick Start Guides to see what it is and report back later.  It does come with a 4-pair POE, but you can easily run it with an AirMax POE brick.

@ClaudeSS WOW! Thanks for sharing. You always get to the good stuff. What other new stuff are they showing off there? What new Unifi gear do they have there? Thanks in advance

Tks for sharing! 


But where are the SFP cages? Man Sad

Same radio in both? Or is there a ptp and a ptmp version?

can't wait for the NDA's to be lifted.  I'm assuming some of the regulars have been testing the heck out of these...
