oThe NanoStation NS 5-ACL:A great product in a small package The NanoStation® AC 5-ACLis a very compact yet very high-performance CPEs featuring airMAX® AC technology and it is also suitably equipped with a highly dedicated Wi-Fi radio for management purposes. The design team at Ubiqui Networks has now released a very compact yet an absolute leader in terms of price to performance ratios; at least as far as the NanoStation NS 5-ACL is concerned oProduct overview It can be said that with the release of this revolutionary product Ubiquiti Networks have created a new standard when it comes to low cost yet highly efficient broadband Customer Premises Equipment (CPE). In fact, the flagship devices of the NanoStation® M range, that is the NanoStation AC (and its counterpart NanoStation AC loco) take the same concept a step farther into the future with the help of the NanoStation 5ACL by adding unique form factors, that have been efficiently mated with integrated airMAX (MIMO TDMA protocol) technology as well as a dedicated Wi-Fi management node. As a matter of fact, the radio and its accompanying antenna are both combined together in such a way that they are able to create a very efficient and compact CPE. The NanoStation AC actually derives maximum gain out of the smallest footprint possible. The low cost, high performance, and small form factor of the NanoStation 5 ACL also makes it both economical to deploy as well as being an extremely versatile piece of equipment, for any networking related task at hand. oSoftware The device comes bundled with the airOS® 8. It is a revolutionary operating system for Ubiquiti airMAX ac products and has the following salient features: oAccess Point PtMP airMAX Mixed Mode oairMAX ac Protocol Support oLong-Range Point-to-Point (PtP) Link Mode oSelectable Channel Width oPtP: 10/20/30/40/50/60/80 MHz oPtMP: 10/20/30/40 MHz oAutomatic Channel Selection oTransmit Power Control: Automatic and manual both oAutomatic Distance Selection (ACK Timing) oStrong WPA2 Security oUsability Enhancements oairMagic® Channel Selection Tool oDynamic Configuration Changes oInstant Input Validation oHTML5 Technology oOptimization for Mobile Devices oDetailed Device Statistics oComprehensive Array of Diagnostic Tools, including RF Diagnostics and airView® Spectrum Analyzer oAdvanced RF Analytics Most airMAX ac devices feature a multi-radio architecture that has been especially created for the express purpose of powering a revolutionary RF analytics engine. An independent processor that is present on the PCBA also powers a second, completely dedicated radio that is able to regularly analyze the full 5 GHz spectrum and every received symbol, so as to provide the user with the most advanced RF analytics in the industry.
