The Rocket 5ac Prism features both airMAX ac and airPrism technologies for maximum wireless performance in high-density areas in the unlicensed 5GHz band and delivers high throughput over its wired connection. To take full advantage of its design and capabilities, deploy the Rocket5ac Prism for PtP or PtMP links in high RF noise environments.
airMAX ac Technology: Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, Ubiquiti’s Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) airMAX ac protocol allows each client to send and receive data using pre-designated time slots scheduled by an intelligent AP controller. This time slot method eliminates hidden node collisions and maximizes airtime efficiency, so airMAX ac technology provides performance improvements in latency, noise immunity, scalability, and throughput compared to other outdoor systems in its class.
airPrism Technology: airPrism technology isolates signals within the operating channel to increase capacity and throughput in co-location deployments.
But what other factors make the Rocket 5AC Prism such an amazing link?
Sporting an all-new design for improved usability, airOS® v7 is the revolutionary operating system for Ubiquiti® airMAX ac products. Some of the highlights include:
Advanced RF Analytics
airMAX ac devices feature a multiradio architecture to power a revolutionary 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 the most advanced RF analytics in the industry. Data from the spectrum analysis and RF performance monitoring is displayed on the Main tab and airView Spectrum Analyzer.
The Main tab displays the following RF information:
Persistent RF Error Vector Magnitude (EVM)
Carrier to Interference-plus-Noise Ratio (CINR)
Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR)
Shielded Metal Housing
Helps protect the Rocket 5ac Prism against electromagnetic interference that might cause instability.
Passive Power over Ethernet (PoE)
24V Passive PoE functionality is included. Both power and data are carried over a single Ethernet cable to the Rocket ac. Use the included PoE Adapter or an optional Ubiquiti PoE EdgeSwitch.
