Installation Requirements

Hardware Overview

RP-SMA Antenna Connectors

Used to attach RF cables (not included).

LEDs

Signal In airOS®, you can modify the wireless signal strength threshold values for each LED on the Wireless tab under Signal LED Thresholds. Each LED will light when the wireless signal strength is equal to or greater than the LED’s threshold value. The default values are shown below:

GPS The GPS LED will light steady blue when the GPS signal strength is sufficient. This requires a minimum of three satellite connections.

LAN The LAN LED will light steady blue when an active Ethernet connection is made to the LAN port and flash when there is activity.

Power The Power LED will light blue when the device is connected to a power source.

Reset Button

To reset to factory defaults, press and hold the Reset button for more than 10 seconds while the device is already powered on. Alternatively, the device may be reset remotely via a Reset button located on the bottom of the Gigabit PoE adapter.

LAN

The Gigabit Ethernet port is used to connect the power and should be connected to the LAN and DHCP server.

Hardware Installation

The Rocket is designed to mount directly onto a Ubiquiti airMAX RocketDish antenna for Point-to-Point use or an airMAX Sector antenna for Point-to-MultiPoint use.

Accessing airOS

You can also manage your device using the Ubiquiti® Network Management System. Setup using the UNMS app requires the U-Installer, sold separately.

Installer Compliance Responsibility

Devices must be professionally installed and it is the professional installer's responsibility to make sure the device is operated within local country regulatory requirements.

Antenna

Select your antenna from the list. If Calculate EIRP Limit is enabled, transmit output power is automatically adjusted to comply with the regulations of the applicable country. For a Custom antenna, Antenna Gain is entered manually. Note the requirements and antenna types listed below.

Cable Loss (When applicable)

Enter the cable loss in dB. Output power is adjusted to compensate for loss between the radio and the antenna.

Certified Antenna Types
