The RocketDish RD-5G31-AC is a Carrier Class 2x2 Bridge Dish Antenna that was designed to seamlessly integrate with RocketM radios (RocketM sold separately). Pair the RocketM’s radio with the RocketDish antenna’s reach to create the endpoint of a high-performance, Point-to-Point (PtP) backhaul. On the right is one example of how the RocketDish can be deployed.
The Ubiquiti Research and Development team engineered the RocketDish RD-5G31-AC with high isolation and Front-to-Back (F/B) ratio. The main benefit is improved Signal-to-Noise Ratio (S/N or SNR). The improved F/B ratio and lower sidelobes reduce the interference from other transmitters in the area - potentially on the same tower. The improved S/N ratio allows a higher-order modulation to be used, for example, 256QAM rather than 16QAM. This in turn increases the number of bits per second for a fixed bandwidth, which is also known as the data rate.
Because of its advanced engineering, the RocketDish RD-5G31-AC provides:
Powerful Beam Directivity - The RocketDish™ ac Antennas feature high isolation and improved F/B ratio for better Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), which allows the use of higher-order modulation and the maximum data rate.
Reduced Interference, Higher Gain - The improved F/B ratio and lower sidelobes significantly reduce interference, so the innovative RocketDish™ ac Antennas provide superior gain and beam performance for high-capacity, multipoint networks.
Industrial-Strength Construction - RocketDish™ ac Antennas are designed with robust mechanical design for outdoor application use.
Weatherproof Design - Ruggedised yet lightweight components resist corrosion and are designed to withstand harsh outdoor conditions. The included radome and metal shroud help protect against nature’s elements.
Breakthrough Design and Performance
The powerful RocketDish™ ac Antennas feature carrier-class construction and 2x2, dual-polarity performance.
