Manufacturer: Ubiquiti Networks
This kit consists of a single airFiber AF-5X and airFiber AF-5G23-S45 dish, for a complete link you will need 2 of these kits. This product pairing is ideal for short (up to 5km) high quality robust wireless links using the smallest airFiber dish available for minimal visual impact.
The Ubiquiti airFiber AF-5X (AF5X) or AFX as its is also known is the latest in airFiber technology to come the from Ubiquiti laboratories. Unlike other airFiber products the AF-5X is a Radio only product designed to be mated with the current RocketDish Series of antennas using a Conversion Kit which is available here. A range if new airFiber Dish's with the conversion kit are also available here along with a special 23dBi 38cm dish especially for the AF-5X.

Building upon the proven design of the airMAX Rocket system, airFiber X allows you to customize airFiber backhaul links or upgrade existing Rocket Point-to-Point (PtP) links. The first airFiber X model is the AF-5X model for use in the 5 GHz frequency band.
Ubiquiti's INVICTUS custom silicon and proprietary radio architecture are designed specifically for long-distance, outdoor wireless applications. Our INVICTUS core communications processing engine surpasses all of the limitations inherent to generic Wi-Fi chips to provide superior performance, long-range capability, DFS flexibility, and power output. The AF-5X features industryleading 10.6 bps/Hz spectral efficiency, line-rate data packet processing for up to 500+ Mbps of real data throughput, and innovative xtreme Range Technology (xRT) for up to 200+ km in range.
The AF-5X covers the entire, license free, 5 GHz spectrum and includes DFS approval. Anyone around the world can deploy and operate the AF-5X in the 5 GHz range practically anywhere they choose (subject to local country regulations). Channel width flexibility (10/20/30/40/50 MHz) allows independent TX and RX channel frequency configurations anywhere within the radio band to avoid local interference, and the channel centers are selectable in 1 MHz increments. You also have the ability to program different uplink and downlink duty cycles to support asymmetric traffic requirements.
The AF-5X is designed to provide the highest TDD throughput available and is engineered with proprietary Hybrid Division Duplexing (HDD) technology. In a backhaul link, two AF-5X 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. Packet transmission latency is virtually eliminated.
The AF-5X supports +- 45 Deg' slant polarization for improved noise immunity and Signal?to?Noise Ratio (SNR). It is compatible with multiple Ubiquiti antennas offering gain of 23 to 34 dBi (Including the current RocketDish range). The compact form factor of the AF-5X allows it to fit into the radio mount of Ubiquiti antennas, so installation requires no special tools.
airFiber 23dBi dish
Housed in a compact form factor, the AF-5G23-S45 offers 23 dBi of gain and features the following advantages:
