Ubiquiti Networks' airFiber Customers Demonstrate Unprecedented Wireline
Performance in the 24 GHz Spectrum
Revolutionary Point-to-Point Wireless Technology Deployed Across Six
Continents, Providing Gigabit Throughput for Large-Scale Networks
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 -- Ubiquiti Networks, Inc.
(NASDAQ: UBNT), a next-generation communications technology company,
today announced that its innovative airFiber point-to-point wireless
technology is being used in customer deployments on six continents
and scaling far beyond the perceived limitations of the 24 GHz
airFiber is deployed worldwide in diverse environments such as
Siberia, Mongolia, Australia, Brazil, Tanzania, Alaska, Pakistan and
Spain. airFiber customers are deploying in some of the harshest
conditions in the world, installing single-hop links at distances of
more than 20 kilometers and multi-hop links extending well beyond 70
kilometers, taking advantage of best-in-class throughput and very low
latency. For more detail on these deployments, visit
airFiber brings several technology innovations to the wireless data
marketplace, including Hybrid Division Duplexing (HDD), a proprietary
protocol developed to maximize throughput and minimize latency for
longhaul wireless networks. These systems also employ Ubiquiti's
robust dynamic coding algorithms to combat the challenges posed by
rain fade in the 24 GHz spectrum. Designed using a combination of
industrial- and military-grade components, airFiber delivers greater
than 1.4 Gbps throughput and latencies on the order of 200
microseconds at a value price.
"airFiber has been an invaluable asset to our network expansion. The
new airFiber link far outperforms our existing licensed radio
solutions," said Ross Palmer, Managing Director at FastCom Ireland,
which deployed airFiber beside a 200 Mbps licensed radio link for
extra network capacity.
"The innovations in airFiber completely debunk the perceived
limitations of 24 GHz systems," said Robert J. Pera, CEO at Ubiquiti
Networks. "Our customer deployments prove that it's possible to
combine gigabit performance, long distance, weather resilience and a
disruptive price in a single system design."
Designed from the ground up by Ubiquiti's in-house R&D engineering
team, airFiber contains a number of patent-pending technologies. From
the custom silicon-integrated circuit implementation to the unique RF
design and the easy-to-install one-piece split-antenna architecture,
airFiber was created to deliver superior throughput and efficiency
for applications like high-performance backhaul and
building-to-building wireless at a disruptive price.
