AirFiber24 HD / AF24HD - 24GHz Full Duplex Point-to-Point 2 Gbps Radio
Featuring our INVICTUS custom silicon for 2+ million packets-per-second processing, the airFiber24HD is ideal for outdoor, PtP bridging and backhaul applications requiring maximum performance. Featuring the world's best unlicensed-band spectral efficiency at 15.9 bps/Hz, the airFiber24 HD supports the dense modulation rates, up to 256QAM, that are required for high data rates, up to 2 Gbps.
Proven Links: 20+ km
The airFiber 24 HD features the most powerful automatic compensation for path loss degradation due to rain fade, so it provides the best range ? up to 20+ km ? among 24 GHz products and allows for constellation threshold extension.
Low-Latency Carrier Backhaul
The airFiber 24-HD supports FDD (Frequency Division Duplexing) in full-duplex mode for 0.2 millisecond latency, resulting in increased efficiency for carrier-class network backhauls.
24 GHz Unlicensed Band
The airFiber24 HD operates in worldwide, license-free, 24 GHz frequencies. Users can deploy airFiber24HD almost anywhere they choose (subject to local country regulations).
Revolutionary Wireless Technology
Introducing airFiber, 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.
Efficient by Design
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: - airFiber LED display
- airFiber Configuration Interface
- Audio tone feature
Built for Speed and Range airFiber delivers gigabit performance at 2 Gbps for airFiber AF-24HD. To put this in perspective, airFiber can transmit a 100 MB file in less than a second. Rivaling common broadband providers, airFiber download speed is up to 100x faster. With speed and throughput surpassing conventional wired backhauls, airFiber prevails over expensive and labor-intensive wired infrastructures.
Speed Comparison (Mbps) airFiber is built for long-range use: up to 20+ km for airFiber AF-24HD which launches the innovative xtreme Range Technology (xRT) feature. airFiber backhauls do not share the security risks associated with wired backhauls. The long distances of wired backhauls are vulnerable to copper theft, fiber optic damage, vandalism, and accidental breakage. With airFiber, only the installation points of the airFiber links need to be secured.
Innovative Proprietary Modem Technology
Ubiquiti's innovative proprietary modem technology was purpose-built to address the specific challenges of outdoor, PtP (Point-to-Point) bridging and high-performance network backhauls. Every aspect of the radio has been carefully simulated and designed to optimize range, speed, and latency performance in the harshest RF noise environments.
Synchronous Data Transmission and Reception
Conventional wireless standards impose a latency by having to receive a packet before a packet is transmitted. airFiber can transmit data synchronously without any wait time. airFiber features traditional TDD and FDD modes of operation in addition to the proprietary Hybrid Division Duplexing (HDD) mode, which provides a breakthrough in range and spectral efficiency performance. Based on the ranging algorithm built into the air protocol, the airFiber radios use patent-pending HDD technology to calculate the propagation delay and know when each radio can transmit and receive, so they send packets in precise synchronization.
