• Passively powered RJ45 (PoE)* port allows for optimal device placement
• Up to 150Mbps bandwidth for connections to multiple wireless devices
• 5GHz frequency allows data to be transmitted and received at a higher speed over conventional 2.4GHz frequencies
• A single 10/100 fast Ethernet port with PoE capabilities provide a data link as well as power for the access point

*Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows a single cable to provide both a data connection and electrical power to the device

Special Features
• Outdoor functionality provides a signal up to 10km away, which can be utilised for point to point networks

What can I expect from the Nanobeam M5 Access point?
The Ubiquiti NBE-M5-16 is capable of providing your network with an access point, or allowing setup of a point to multipoint connection between networks. It is passively powered over Ethernet with a PoE injector (included), which allows optimal positioning for maximum signal strength.

What wireless capabilities am I offered?
An internal 16dBi antenna distributes a 150Mbps 5GHz signal. This allows direct connection from wireless enabled portable devices. Alternatively, the Nanobeam M5 can be used as part of a point to point system. This allows locations of up to 10km away to share the same network.
NanoBeam technology provides focus to your Wi-Fi signal and directs it to connected devices, this provides you with best performance in busy wireless network environments.

Is there software available that allows me to manage my wireless network?
Air OS and airView provide you with the tools you need to monitor and manage the wireless signals sent and received by the Nanobeam M5. Ubiquiti`s AirMAX technology enables the allocation of time slots and prioritisation of data packets to give you complete control of who uses your wireless network and when.

Asked by: Spanish spider
This would be set up as a point to point network so two would normaly be used, anything in the line of sight can have an effect on the signal.

Can this be used to link to an existing Nanostation M2 transmitter? Could I use two of these to replace the M2s I am running two Nanostation M2s linked, one on an office, the other on a small ship, at the moment but need a mobile omnidirectional option.

Asked by: Seadog
The M5's have a RJ45 out for these they do not replace the antenna but go out via RJ45, if the M2's are the same this would be perfect for your needs.
