With a symmetrical modular design and 45° horn antenna beamwidth, the IsoStation M5 Shielded airMAX Radio with Isolation Antenna from Ubiquiti Networks can be installed in a variety of locations. Furthermore, this antenna features improved noise immunity, which helps provide a more reliable and stronger connection, making this antenna a great solution for point-to-multipoint configurations. Installation is simple, as this antenna comes with a 24V / 0.5A Gigabit Ethernet PoE adapter and features a single Gigabit Ethernet port for easy network connectivity. Once installed, the IsoStation M5 can be scaled to suit a variety of networking needs, thanks to the asymmetrical horn antennas, which help to reduce sidelobe radiation.

Improved Noise Immunity

The IsoStation M5 provides high-isolation solutions in fixed beamwidth increments through interchangeable horn antennas that have been optimized for an urban environment. The tailored antenna radiation patterns spatially filter both in-band and out-of-band spurious RF emissions to increase the noise immunity of the IsoStation M5. This feature is especially important in an increasingly congested RF environment.

Modular Design

The interchangeable antenna improves beam‑shaping for specific deployment needs. By default, the IsoStation M5 includes the symmetrical horn antenna with 45° beamwidth.


Horn antennas increase co-location performance without sacrificing gain. Symmetrical horn antennas (30° and 45° versions) offer improved scalability options for wireless systems. Unique beam performance and great co-location characteristics allow for a higher density of sectors than traditional sector technology.

Enhanced Co-Location

Asymmetrical horn antennas (60° and 90° versions) are designed to have attenuated side lobes and extremely low back radiation. They offer enhanced front-to-back ratio with low side-lobe radiation. Asymmetrical horn antennas are ideal for cluster sector installations with high co-location requirements.

Extended Performance

A robust dish antenna, model U‑OMT‑Dish, offers excellent beam directivity with 27 dBi of gain. It can be paired with the IsoStation M5 to extend radio performance for a greater number of WISP customers. Providing high throughput and an innovative form factor, the IsoStation M5 is versatile and cost-effective to deploy.


airOS is an intuitive, versatile, highly developed Ubiquiti firmware technology that requires no training to operate. Behind the user interface is a powerful firmware architecture, which enables high -performance, outdoor multi‑point networking.
• Protocol Support
• Ubiquiti Channelization
• Spectral Width Adjustment
• ACK Auto-Timing
• AAP Technology

Integrated on all Ubiquiti M products, airView provides advanced spectrum analyzer functionality: waterfall, waveform, and real-time spectral views allow operators to identify noise signatures and plan their networks to minimize noise interference.
• Waterfall: Aggregate energy over time for each frequency
• Waveform: Aggregate energy collected
• Real-Time: Energy is shown in real time as a function of frequency
• Recording: Automate airView to record and report results


The IsoStation M5 can be accessed by the UNMS (Ubiquiti Network Management System) app once it has been set up on the same Wi-Fi network as your mobile device.
(Original setup is done through your browser.)

Accessing airOS via Wi-Fi

The UNMS app provides instant access to the airOS configuration interface and can be downloaded from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android). UNMS allows you to configure and manage the IsoStation M5 and offers various configuration options once you're connected or logged in.

airMAX Technology Included

Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, Ubiquiti's Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) airMAX protocol allows each client to send and receive data using pre-designated time slots scheduled by an intelligent AP controller. This time slot method eliminates hidden node collisions and maximizes airtime efficiency. It provides significant performance improvements in latency, throughput, and scalability compared to other outdoor systems in its class.
• Intelligent QoS with voice/video priority for seamless streaming
• High capacity and scalability
• Long-distance, carrier-class links

Hardware Overview

Using airMAX technology, the IsoStationM5 supports up to 100+ Mb/s real TCP/IP throughput. It also offers the following features:
• Interchangeable horn antennas for enhanced beam shaping
• Horn feed comes directly from the radio input/output so connectors are eliminated
• Single button release for ease of changing antennas
• All metal shielded radio base
• Metal strap for quick and simple mounting

Modular Design

The antenna horn is interchangeable and helps with beam-shaping for specific deployment and environment needs. The IsoStationTM also gets maximum gain out of the smallest footprint.


Beam Performance Perfected


The IsoStationTM can use a variety of horn antenna sectors designed for increased co-location performance without sacrificing gain. Its unique beam performance and superb co-location characteristics allow for a higher density of sectors than traditional sector technology.

Enhanced Co-Location

Asymmetrical horn antenna options (60° and 90°) have naturally attenuated side lobes and extremely low back radiation, and they offer industry-leading front-to-back ratio and low side lobe radiation. Symmetrical horn antennas (30° and 45°, the default) are ideal for cluster sector installations with high co-location requirements.

Improved Noise Immunity

IsoStationTM blocks or spatially filters out noise, so noise immunity is improved. This feature is especially important in an area crowded with other RF signals of the same or similar frequency.

High MAC Efficiency

High MAC efficiency provides ±80% PHY RATE throughput.

Management Wi-Fi Radio

The IsoStationTM AC integrates a separate Wi-Fi radio for fast and easy setup using your mobile device.


Now with airOS®8
