Overview:

2.4 GHzPicoStation M is ideal for applications require long-range performance and a minimal installation footprint. It can be deployed either indoor or outdoor environments and can function either as an AP or airMAX Station.

PicoStation M DiagramThe PicoStationM2-HP is one of the smallest outdoor 802.11g/n access points... and it's also one of the most powerful too! With up to 1,000 mW of output power, this omni-directional router can provide up to 8 million square feet of wireless coverage. It can connect to 802.11g/n devices or, for maximum range and speed, to compatible Airmax11n devices. Setup couldn't be easier: just plug a single network patch cable into the weather-proof enclosure. The included Power-over-Ethernet injector combines power and data on the same line. The PicoStation2M-HP includes hardware for wall or pole mounting.

  • Includes powerful and intuitive AirOS software
  • Open customizable Pico firmware
  • 32MB SDRAM & 8MB flash memory
  • 6dBi omni-directional antenna

Leading-Edge Industrial Design

Ubiquiti Networks™ set the bar for the world's smallest and most powerful Access Point (AP) with the original PicoStation™. The PicoStationM2HP takes the same concept to the future with integrated airMAX™ technology.

The PicoStationM2HP features speeds up to 100+ Mbps and range performance of up to 500 m. It can be deployed in indoor or outdoor environments, so the PicoStationM2HP is ideal for applications requiring medium-range performance and a minimal installation footprint.

The high performance, small form factor, and low cost of the PicoStationM2HP make it extremely versatile and economical to deploy.

Unlimited Applications

In addition to the LSDK support, PicoStation ships with 32MB RAM and 8MB Flash to encourage developers to customize Pico Firmware to create their own applications such as Hot-Zone deployments, mesh networking, and metering applications.

Featuring Powerful AirOS Software and Linux SDK

PicoStation ships standard with the powerful and intuitive AirOS by Ubiquiti Networks. It also is supported by a Linux SDK to encourage open source development.

Utilize airMAX Technology

airMAXUnlike the standard WiFi 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 air time efficiency. It provides many magnitudes of performance improvements in latency, throughput, and scalability compared to all other outdoor systems in its class.

  • Intelligent QoS - Priority is given to voice/video seamless streaming.
  • Scalability - High capacity and scalability.
  • Long Distance - Capable of high-speed, carrier-class links.

airOS
Exceptionally Intuitive Interface

AirOS is an intuitive, versatile, highly developed Ubiquiti firmware technology that resides on Ubiquiti Station products. It is exceptionally intuitive and was designed to require no training to operate. Behind the user interface is a powerful firmware architecture which enables hi-performance outdoor multipoint networking.

airView screenshotairView
Spectrum Analyzer by Ubiquiti Networks

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 Chart

This time-based graph shows the aggregate energy collected since the start of an AirView session, over time for each frequency. The power of the energy in dBm is shown across the frequency span and one row is inserted in this graph every few seconds.

It is important to note that the color of the energy designates its amplitude. The darker colors (Blues and darker shades) mean very low to low energy levels at that frequency bin, whereas increasingly brighter colors (ie: Green, Yellow, Orange, and finally Red) designate increasingly higher energy levels at the specific frequency bin.

The Waterfall View's legend (top-right corner) provides a numerical guide associating the various colors to power levels (dBm). The low end of that legend (left) is always adjusted with the calculated noise floor, and the high end (right) is set to the highest detected power level since the start of the session.

Waterfall Chart

Channel Usage Chart

This graph is ideal for determining the best channel to setup a WiFi network for optimal performance. In the graph, each 2.4GHz WiFi channel is represented by a bar displaying a percentage representing the relative "crowdedness" of that specific channel.This percentage is calculated by analyzing both the popularity and the strength of RF energy in that channel since the start of a AirView session. An installer could use this view to optimize a network installation by avoiding highly used channels and setting up new AP's on channels showing the least usage.

Channel Usage Chart

Waveform Chart

This graph shows the aggregate energy collected since the start of an AirView Session. The power of the energy in dBm is shown across the frequency span. A Blue color will mean energy at a particular strength and frequency appears in the air with a relatively low occurence, whereas increasingly brighter colors (ie: Green, Yellow, Orange, and finally Red) designate energy appearing at a specific power/frequency with higher occurrence. The spectral view over time will essentially display the steady-state RF energy signature of a given environment. An installer could use this view to optimize a network installation by avoiding highly used channels and setting up new AP's on channels showing the least usage.

Waveform Chart

Real-time Chart

This graph displays a traditional Spectrum Analyzer in which energy (in dBm) is shown real-time as a function of frequency. There are three traces in this view: Max Hold, this trace will update and hold maximum power levels across the frequency since the start of an AirView session. Average, this trace shows the running average energy across frequency. Real-time, this trace shows the real-time energy seen by the AirView device as a function of frequency.

TOUGHCable Connectors

Specifically designed for use with Ubiquiti TOUGHCables, TOUGHCable Connectors protect against ESD attacks and Ethernet hardware damage, while allowing rapid fi eld deployment without soldering. The standard TOUGHCable Connectors are available in 100-pc. bags, while the TC-GND versions include ground wires and are available in 20-pc. bags.

ESD Attacks are overwhelmingly the leading cause for device failures. The diagram below illustrates the areas vulnerable to ESD Attacks in a defenseless network. By using a grounded Ubiquiti POE adapter (included) along with Ubiquiti TOUGHCable (sold separately), you can effectively eliminate ESD attacks.

TOUGHSwitch PoE with ScreenshotsToughtSwitch PoE
Advanced Gigabit PoE Managed Switch

Introducing the Advanced Power over Ethernet Controllers, TOUGHSwitch™ PoE from Ubiquiti Networks. TOUGHSwitch PoE delivers reliable passive PoE and fast 10/100/1000 Mbps connectivity to attached Ubiquiti devices and other devices that support passive PoE.

To connect your PoE devices, simply enable PoE in the easy-to-use TOUGHSwitch Confi guration Interface. Each port can be individually confi gured to provide PoE, so both PoE and non-PoE devices can be connected.

Simplify Your Deployment

TOUGHSwitch PoE allows network architects to design cleaner, less cluttered deployments. For example, integrating one TOUGHSwitch PoE PRO can eliminate the need for the following:

  • 8 PoE adapters
  • 8 power cords
  • 8 power outlets
  • 8 Ethernet patch cables

TOUGHSwitch PoE deployments increase efficiency and greatly reduce potential failure points - resulting in faster installations and less maintenance and troubleshooting.
