The Ubiquiti LTU Rocket Outdoor Point-to-Point BaseStation is the first Point-to-Multi-Point (PtMP) BaseStation radio in the LTU product family. Operating in the 5 GHz frequency band, the LTU Rocket is a spectrally efficient, noise-resilient PtMP AP specifically designed for wireless ISPs (WISPs).
- 600+ Mbps PtMP performance (1+ Gbps with future firmware upgrade).
- Up to sixty-four (64) client connections per AP.
- 2+ Million pps.
- Proprietary RF filtering.
- Integrated GPS for improved synchronisation.
- 10/20/30/40/50/100 MHz Channel Width Flexibility.
- By default, the Auto Output Power option allows the LTU Rocket to set the output power (EIRP) to the appropriate level.
- Can use different frequencies for TX and RX to avoid interference.
LTU is a new, proprietary technology with custom silicon and radio design that break through the limitations of 802.11 WiFi technology. This enables the LTU Rocket to deliver far superior performance over previous airMAX products that are based on 802.11 WiFi. The LTU Rocket is designed for WISPs from the ground floor up. Its core communications processing engine enables low latency, long-range capability, DFS flexibility, higher constellations, better power output, and improved receive sensitivity.
The LTU Rocket is designed to be paired with a variety of Ubiquiti antennas to suit the needs of each installation. The radio includes a mounting bracket that allows it to be used with a 5 GHz airMAX Sector antenna or airMAX Omni antenna (see accessories tab) for a complete 5 GHz PtMP BaseStation. You can even pair three LTU Rocket radios with the airPrism 5 GHz 3×30° HD Sector Antenna (see accessories tab) for co-location deployments. The LTU Rocket also works with any CPE device in the LTU family, such as the LTU Pro (see accessories tab).
Channel width flexibility
Channel width flexibility allows independent TX and RX channel frequency configurations anywhere within the radio band to avoid local interference. Channel width options include the following:
- 10 MHz
- 20 MHz
- 30 MHz
- 40 MHz
- 50 MHz
- Up to 100 MHz*
* Available with future firmware upgrade
The LTU Rocket’s target TX output power controls each station’s TX output power. A PtMP network can manage signal levels to enhance network stability and achieve optimal wireless performance with the highest possible modulation.
To manage the LTU Rocket, you have two options: the LTU Configuration Interface, and Ubiquiti Network Management System (UNMS). Either option lets you manually configure the LTU Rocket. The LTU Rocket can also be used to automatically configure the stations. On each station, use the Find My AP feature to scan for APs using the same channel bandwidth, select the appropriate LTU Rocket, and then use it to configure the station.
Built-in GPS improves synchronisation and allows map and Fresnel views on the Dashboard.
The Dashboard offers map and Fresnel views so you can visualise the network. The map view shows your PtMP links overlaid on a geographic map, while the Fresnel view shows the link calculated for your selected CPE, including line of sight, first Fresnel zone, and 60% clearance zone.
New graphs provide instant status updates and help you to detect connectivity issues and their effects on PtMP performance:
- The airtime distribution bar graph displays in real time how much airtime each CPE is using. Click any point to view the airtime and link score for a specific CPE.
- The AP RF environment bar graph shows ambient RF noise levels across the frequency spectrum.
- The combined remote RF environment bar graph also shows ambient RF noise levels but for the combined environment of all of the remote CPEs.
- The local and remote RX rate histograms show the receive modulation rates of the various CPEs.
Real-time spectral analysis
airView spectral analysis runs on a dedicated and independent receiver, which has excellent EVM (Error Vector Magnitude) performance. The receiver can also perform other tasks, such as a search for channel occupancy, DFS detection, and automatic channel/ frequency assignment. Calibration (signal level measurement accuracy) and resolution bandwidth options are enhanced. Spectral zoom (user-defined scan limits) is also available.
The LTU Rocket can be used with existing airMAX 5 GHz sector antennas (see accessories tab) offering gain of 16 to 22 dBi, as well as airMAX 5 GHz omni antennas (see accessories tab) offering gain of 10 to 13 dBi. The radio’s built-in mounting bracket allows it to fit into the radio mount of these antennas – no special tools are needed for installation.
