Ubiquiti NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 – NBE-5AC-Gen2
With tighter beamwidth, the NBE-5AC-GEN2 NanoBeam ac Gen2 airMAX ac CPE with Dedicated Management Radio from Ubiquiti Networks offers a more reliable long-distance point-to-point connection. Boasting a maximum throughput up to 450 Mb/s, this NanoBeam radio is designed to filter out noise to reduce interference in areas congested with multiple RF signals while offering up to 19 dBi gain. Setup is simple, as the NanoBeam can be mounted to a pole (kit included) or to the wall and aligned using its own 3-axis mount to ensure it is level.

Advanced RF Analytics
airMAX ac devices feature a multi-radio architecture to power an RF analytics engine. An independent processor on the PCBA powers a second, dedicated radio, which persistently analyzes the full 5 GHz spectrum and every received symbol to provide you with advanced RF analytics.
airOS 8 displays the following RF information:
• Persistent RF Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) constellation diagrams
• Signal, Noise, and Interference (SNI) diagrams
• Carrier to Interference-plus-Noise Ratio (CINR) histograms
airView allows you to identify noise signatures and plan your networks to minimize noise interference. airView performs the following functions:
• Constantly monitors environmental noise
• Collects energy data points in real-time spectral views
• Helps optimize channel selection, network design, and wireless performance
airView runs in the background without disabling the wireless link, so there is no disruption to the network. In airView, there are three spectral views, each of which represents different data: waveform, waterfall, and ambient noise level.
airView provides powerful spectrum analyzer functionality, eliminating the need to rent or purchase additional equipment for conducting site surveys.
Accessing airOS via Wi-Fi
The UMobile App provides instant accessibility to the airOS configuration interface and can be downloaded from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android). UMobile allows you to set up, configure, and manage the NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 and offers various configuration options once you’re connected or logged in.
airMAX ac Technology
Intelligent QoS – Priority assigned to voice/video for seamless streaming.
Scalability – High capacity and scalability.
Long Distance – Capable of high-speed, carrier-class links.
airMAX ac technology boosts the advantages of the proprietary TDMA protocol. Ubiquiti’s airMAX engine with custom IC dramatically improves TDMA latency and network scalability. The custom silicon provides hardware acceleration capabilities to the airMAX scheduler, to support the high data rates and dense modulation used in airMAX ac technology.
airMAX ac supports high data rates, which require dense modulation: 256QAM – a significant increase from 64QAM, which is used in airMAX. With their use of proprietary airMAX ac technology, airMAX ac products support up to 450+ Mbps real TCP/IP throughput – up to triple the throughput of standard airMAX products.
Quick Installation – No fasteners are required for pole-mounting, and a single wall fastener (not included) is required for wall-mounting.
Convenient Alignment – The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 pivots on its ball joint 3-axis mount for easy aiming.
Innovative Mechanical Design
Efficient Footprint – The radio and antenna are combined into a single body that takes up minimal space. The form factor features the highest gain for its size.
Aesthetics – The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 is small enough to blend discreetly into the background at a customer’s location.
Versatile Mounting – The NanoBeam 5AC Gen2 can be mounted in almost any position needed for line of sight.
