Ubiquiti Networks set the bar for the world's first low-cost and efficient broadband Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) with the original Ubiquiti NanoStation. The Ubiquiti NanoStation M5 takes the same concept to the future with sleek and elegant form factor, along with integrated airMAX (MIMO TDMA protocol) technology. The low cost, high performance, and small form factor of this Ubiquiti NanoStation M5 makes it extremely versatile and economical to deploy.

Key Features

  • AP mode, client or WDS with Traffic shaping and QoS.
  • Between WAN and LAN routing and transparent bridge with or without NAT.
  • Signal strength, which is reported by the on-board LED indicator.
  • In bridge mode and WDS device supports transparent transmission IPv6.

Utilise airMAX Technology

Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, Ubiquiti's Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) airMAX 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 maximises airtime efficiency. It provides many magnitudes of performance improvements in latency, throughput, and scalability compared to all other outdoor systems in its class.

  • Intelligent QoS Priority is given to voice/video for seamless streaming.
  • Scalability High capacity and scalability.
  • Long Distance Capable of high-speed, carrier-class links.
  • Latency Multiple features dramatically reduce noise.

Passive Power over Ethernet (PoE)

The Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality allows both power and data to be carried over a single Ethernet cable to the Ubiquiti NanaStation M5.
