Ubiquiti LTU-ROCKET is the first point-to-multipoint radio station in the LTU product family. The radio station operates in the 5GHz frequency band and has been specially designed for WISP wireless devices. The equipment, thanks to its unconventional design, allows for better performance in comparison with its predecessor airMAX. Using its advanced technology, the device produces low delays and is able to work over long distances.
Channel width flexibility allows for TX and RX channel independence and frequency configurations anywhere in the radio band to avoid local interference. Channel width options include
- 10 MHz
- 20 MHz
- 30 MHz
- 40 MHz
- 50 MHz
- Up to 100 MHz*
LTU Rocket is managed in two ways: the configuration interface and the Ubiquiti network management system (UNMS™). Both options allow you to manually configure the radio station. In addition, the built-in GPS system improves synchronization of the device.
LTU is a new, proprietary technology with a custom silicon and radio design that breaks through the limitations of 802.11 Wi-Fi technology. As a result, LTU delivers significantly higher performance than previous AirMAX products based on 802.11 Wi-Fi. LTU Rocket from Ubiquiti Networks is designed for WISP devices and its main communication processor provides low latency, long range, DFS flexibility, higher constellations, better output power and increased reception sensitivity.

LTU is a completely new platform based on proprietary technology that does not use 802.11n protocol, making it incompatible with 802.11n and 802.11ac devices. For this reason it is NOT compatible with airMAX M5 or airMAX 5AC.
The LTU family today consists of several products:
The LTU racket
No, AF5XHD is a brand new architecture that is not compatible with AF5X.
