Ubiquiti LTU-Lite 600 Mbit-s Wireless Access Point
General InformationManufacturer: Ubiquiti Networks, Inc
Manufacturer Website Address: www.ubnt.com
Brand Name: Ubiquiti
Product Model: LTU-Lite
Product Name: 5 GHz PtMP LTU Client Radio
Featuring an integrated antenna, the LTU Lite is a compact, cost-effective subscriber station utilizing the 5 GHz radio band. It functions as a CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) in a Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) environment with the LTU Rocket® as the basestation.
Proprietary LTU Technology
Based on Ubiquiti's LTU technology, the LTU Lite is not impeded by the limitations of standard 802.11 Wi-Fi technology. Its custom LTU silicon and radio architecture provide up to 600+ Mbps of real TCP/IP throughput and modulation rates of up to 4096QAM.
The LTU Lite supports both bridged and built-in hardware NAT router modes to suit your specific deployment.
The LTU Lite can use different frequencies for TX and RX to avoid interference.
Convenient Mount Options
The LTU Lite is designed for quick yet reliable mounting on a pole or on a wall. All necessary mounting hardware is included.
Channel Width Flexibility
Channel width flexibility allows independent TX and RX channel frequency configurations anywhere within 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
By default, the Auto Output Power option allows the LTU Lite to set the output power (EIRP) to the appropriate level.
The LTU Lite's TX output power is controlled by the AP's target TX output power. A PtMP network can manage signal levels to enhance network stability and achieve optimal wireless performance with the highest possible modulation.
To manage the LTU Lite, you have two options: the LTU Configuration Interface and Ubiquiti Network Management System (UNMS™). Either option lets you manually configure the LTU Lite.
Within the LTU Configuration Interface, you can manually configure the LTU Lite or manage it from the AP side using the Find My AP feature. The LTU Lite will automatically scan for APs using the same channel bandwidth. Select the appropriate AP and then use it to configure the LTU Lite.
LTU Configuration Interface
The Dashboard offers map and Fresnel views so you can visualize the network. The map view shows your PtMP links overlaid on a geographic map, while the Fresnel view shows the link calculated for your selected CPE, including line of sight, first Fresnel zone, and 60% clearance zone.
New graphs provide instant status updates and help you to detect connectivity issues and their effects on PtMP performance:
- The airtime distribution bar graph displays in real time how much airtime each CPE is using. Click any point to view the airtime and link score for a specific CPE.
- The AP RF environment bar graph shows ambient RF noise levels across the frequency spectrum.
- The combined remote RF environment bar graph also shows ambient RF noise levels but for the combined environment of all of the remote CPEs.
- The local and remote RX rate histograms show the receive modulation rates of the various CPEs.
