Ubiquiti (UBNT +0.6%) claims its new airMax ac wireless backhaul systems can deliver 450+ Mbps of throughput, or 3x that of the regular airMax. Improved latency and noise immunity is also promised, as is a range of 25+ km.

Ubiquiti attributes the performance gains to its use of a custom signal-processing ASIC, improved firmware, new antennas, and proprietary RF filtering tech (called airPrism) that lowers noise/interference.

CEO Robert Pera mentioned on the FQ3 CC (transcript) Ubiquiti will initially offer point-to-point airMax ac hardware before later rolling out multi-point products.
