Ubiquiti IsoStation – Get Maximum Gain out of the Smallest Footprint

In the WISP quest to connect people and things, the unlicensed RF environment is getting crowded every moment and WISPs have to deal with interference every time. Even worse, there isn't enough space any more for co-location especially with the traditional antenna design. As solution providers, we understand this problem; Not only so, but also intentional about solving it. We bring you, the Ubiquiti IsoStation M5 and 5AC, with interchangeable PrismAP Horn Antennas.

Ubiquiti IsoStation M5 and 5AC, with Interchangeable PrismAP Horn Antennas.
Here's why...

It gives you improved noise immunity with the tailored antenna radiation patterns that spatially filters both in-band and out-of-band spurious RF emissions. This feature is especially important in an increasingly congested RF urban environment.

Ubiquiti IsoStation
Improved Noise Immunity

Its modular design gives you options to interchange the antenna, to improve beam‑shaping for specific deployment needs. By default, the IsoStation 5AC includes the symmetrical horn antenna with 45° beamwidth which is interchangeable with either the 30°, 60°, or 90° antenna.

802.11ac Wave 2 – The Business Enabler [Part 2]

Alright! It’s time to define the 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi standard and explore what it can do for you! In part 1, we dug into technology [read jargon] that defines Wave 2 WiFi, and laid the foundation upon which this article is all about. If you haven’t, please read it first here, and then come back. Go ahead...I’ll wait. All done? Good! So, Wave 2. What is it and what can it do for you? 802.11ac Wave 2 is the second wave of wireless networking technology based on the 802.11ac standard. It is an improvement of Wave 1 in terms of functionality and performance, in relation to PHY Rate, MIMO, Spatial Streams and Frequency Bands, making it the current cutting edge of Wi-Fi technology. Let’s explore these aspects some more...

PHY Rate

802.11ac Wave 2 provides significantly higher throughput, up to 3.47Gbps compared to Wave 1 which maxes out at 1.3Gbps. This offers great support for high demand WiFi networks that require gigabit speeds making it perfect for latency-sensitive traffic like video and voice. Higher throughput up to 3.47Gbps


802.11ac Wave 2 supports MU-MIMO [Multi User-Multiple In Multiple Out], offering greater density in concurrent usage, compared to Wave 1 which supports SU-MIMO [Single User - Multiple In Multiple Out]. This means that multiple connected devices can send and receive data at the same time and easily get on and off the network. It translates to efficient traffic management in an overcrowded network, greatly reducing congestion. A real world application of MU-MIMO is in the IoT -a high density interconnection of wireless devices- providing concurrent downstream communications to multiple wireless devices. This efficiency results to faster and more reliable wireless networks. MU-MIMO

Spatial Streams

802.11ac Wave 2 supports 4 spatial streams compared to 802.11ac Wave 1, which does up to 3 spatial streams. Spatial Streaming is all about transmitting and receiving antennas and the science behind it. I’ve discussed it in detail here. The extra spatial stream is a significant improvement. The more transmit and receive antennas are, the greater the distance of transmission with no effect on transmission speed. This translates in reliability and resilience in high density WiFi networks. 4×4 MIMO

Frequency Band

Both 802.11ac Wave 1 and Wave 2 operate in the 5GHz frequency band. While Wave 1 supports 20,40 and 80 MHz channels in the 5GHz band, Wave 2 offers a wider channel for transmission, up to the 160 MHz channel. The wider the channels, the higher the bandwidth and flexibility. This results to higher speeds and the flexibility to shift across the wide channels in noisy environments. Overall results? Reliable and resilient wireless networks.

So there you have it! 802.11ac Wave 2, the business enabler! Can it get any better with all these goodies?  802.11ax is in the offing... Looking to deploy 802.11ac Wave 2 Wireless systems?

ePMP Force 180

ePMP Force 180 – Reliable, High-Quality Wireless Broadband Connectivity

The ePMP Force 180 is a compact and powerful Integrated Radio with exceptional reliability and quality. It packs some significant performance features optimized for wireless broadband connectivity.

Operating in the 5GHz frequency band, it uses 2x2 MIMO-OFDM technologies to deliver 200 Mbps of real data throughput. It also comes equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet port so that nothing will limit it in delivering the maximum throughput. This allows you to confidently offer triple play services -voice, video and data- in the most demanding networks.

This radio combines an antenna gain of 16 dBi and transmission power of up to 30 dBm to give a range of up to 20km, making it perfect for use as an Access Point, Subscriber Module or PTP radio. Combine that with an IP55 rating to make it great for outdoor use! The Force 180 Integrated Radio also functions as a client to an ePMP GPS Synchronized Radio in either a PMP or PTP deployment forming a GPS Synchronized solution.

The radio module is powered by PoE [14-30V]. More to that, the Ethernet port has the unique capability of being powered from a PoE injector that conforms to standard pinouts or from a PoE injector that conforms to Cambium pinouts. This makes it possible to upgrade existing radio locations to the Force 180 without changing the PoE injector!

The Force 180 radio also features eFortify™ and eCommand™ software solutions. eFortify enhances the performance in high noise environments while eCommand provides a suite of management features and tools to assist in planning, provisioning and monitoring of their network. These software features provide operators with the ability to confidently deploy high performance networks, with greater visibility and control.

It also includes an adjustable mounting bracket that eases the task of installing and properly aligning the radio, for best link performance.

Powerful, right? What’s more, all these features come in a compact and sleek design at a very affordable price! Empower your customers today...choose the Force 180 Integrated Radio by Cambium Networks.
