Forget Ethernet cable, the Ubiquiti NanoStation is ideal for bridging networks or sharing broadband across distance
To install, place the units at either end of the network and connect both to Ethernet cables – for example, connect the first unit into your modem at location one, and connect the second into an Ethernet switch or WiFi access point at the other location
Up to six remote buildings can be linked over one connection with the NanoBridge supporting AP-WDS.
This is a transparent data-link layer bridge, not a routed bridge – this means that you are creating a virtual ethernet cable between the two facilities, making network setup incredibly simple – no routing configuration, all protocols (DHCP, DNS, etc) just work
Management of the Ubiquiti device couldn’t be easier with SSH and SNMP protocol support and an intuitive HTTP interface.
802.11b/g/n WiFi Access Point
Login to the AirOS management software and set to AP mode to create a high performance, long range WiFi network
With a wide directional broadcast angle the NanoStation M2 is ideal for covering sports grounds and outdoor areas with a sector-by-sector approach
You can learn how to set up the NanoStation as a long range WiFi access point by following their Quick Start Installation Manual
Ready to Install
This unit has all networking hardware integrated and is completely weatherproof for permanent installation in even the toughest environments
Signal strength indicators allow for quick and easy alignment
For best performance the unit should be roof mounted, high and clear of obstructions, via its integrated pole mounting bracket.
The units are powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) – simply plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the NanoStation, and the other into the PoE Injector (which is plugged into AC power) – this allows one cable to power the unit and also carry network traffic
We recommend using Cat6 Outdoor UV Shielded Cable with this unit.
A heads Up!
Surge protection should be used for all outdoor installations. Ubiquiti recommend that you use two Ethernet Surge Protectors – model ETH-SP – place one near the NanoStation and the other at the entry point to the building
The ETH-SP will absorb power surges and safely discharge them into the ground.
