Hardware Overview

System LED

Flashing White

Initializing.

White

Factory defaults, waiting for integration.

Alternating White/Blue

Device is busy; do not touch or unplug it. This usually indicates that a process such as a firmware upgrade is taking place.

Blue

Successfully integrated into a network and working properly.

Flashing

This is used to locate a device.

When you click Locate in the UniFi Network Controller software, the LED will flash blue. The software will also display the location of the device on the map.

Red with Circulating Blue LED

The 60 GHz link cannot be established or has dropped due to bad weather. If the UBB fails over to 5 GHz, the LED will remain red. When the 60 GHz link is re-established, the LED will turn blue or the custom color you selected in the UniFi Network Controller.

Note: If the other bridge device is within range and the UBB LED is red, we recommend moving the UBB device up or down to enhance the signal strength.

Green

In the Manage Device section of the UniFi Network Controller, you can enable the Alignment Tool. When the UBB devices are properly aligned, the LED will turn green.

Note: If the other bridge device is within range and the UBB LED is green and red, we recommend moving the UBB device up or down until the LED is green.

Reset Button

Resets to factory defaults. The device should be running after bootup is complete. Press and hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds until the LED starts flashing and then becomes solidly lit. After a few seconds, the LED will turn off, and the device will automatically reboot.

Note: The UBB radios are pre-paired. If a link is lost due to configuration changes, you can reset both UBB radios to re-establish the link.

Ethernet Port

Local UBB radio (source LAN) This Gigabit Ethernet port is used to connect the power and should be connected to the LAN and DHCP server.

Remote UBB radio (bridged LAN) This Gigabit Ethernet port is used to connect the power and should be connected to the LAN. It will receive its IP address from the DHCP server via the wireless link to the local UBB radio.

Hardware Installation

For each UBB radio, go to the appropriate mounting instructions: Pole Mounting or “Wall Mounting”.

Pole-Mounting

Wall Mounting

The device must be mounted directly to a wood stud or other structurally stable surface to avoid damage to the mounting hole when you adjust the aim.

Optional Accessory

To enhance stability, you can use the NanoBeam® Wall Mount Kit, model NBE-WMK (sold separately).

Note: Center screw included. Two optional screws (not included) provide additional stability.
