Ubiquiti NanoBeam Review – Transcript

Alexis Argent:

Hello and welcome to 4G TV, 4Gon Solutions product review channel. I’m Alexis Argent, founder of 4Gon Solutions and our sister company VoIPon, both leading distributors of communications equipment and serving customers worldwide. Today we’re looking at the new Ubiquiti NanoBeam M Five. Ubiquiti are one of our top selling manufacturers here at 4Gon, and this new addition to the airMAX range is a great example of why Ubiquiti are so popular with our customers.  So let’s get started.

In the box, you’ll find the airMAX NanoBeam M Five unit as follows,  a 24V PoE adapter, a mounting kit and the product documentation.

Set to reinvent CPE, the NanoBeam has a compact, dish reflector design. It looks similar to the existing Ubiquiti NanoBridge, but now has a smaller, symmetrical antenna. The NanoBeam is set to eventually phase out the older Ubiquiti NanoBridge product range.

 To construct the NanoBeam, firstly slot the bracket onto the dish like so. Then, clip the back of the antenna to the dish as follows. Finally, slot the antenna through the dish until it clicks to ensure it is fitted securely. The NanoBeam is then ready to mount using the mounting bracket supplied.

The airMAX NanoBeam directs RF energy in a tighter, uniformed beamwidth. By focusing the beam, noise immunity is improved by spatially filtering out interference. The NanoBeam also uses Ubiquiti’s InnerFeed technology. This means the radio is integrated into the feedhorn of the antenna, voiding the need for a cable and therefore negating cable loss and improving performance.

The models we have on display here are the NBE-M5 300 and the NBE-M5 400 which feature:

  • A 560MHz processor

  • A 5GHz Operating Frequency

  • 2 x 2 MIMO

  • a 22 dBi and 25 dBi antenna gain

  • and Wind survivability of up to 125 MPH

 The intuitive mounting kit gives the NanoBeam possibly the easiest assembly and installation of a wireless product on the market. The NanoBeam-M5 300 and M5 400 models are set to eventually replace the NanoBridge-22 and NanoBridge 25 respectively.  Compared to similar products on the market, the NanoBeam features a faster processor, better noise immunity and a high gain to price ratio. This all results in a more stable connection, slightly higher throughput and slightly longer coverage than the NanoBridge’s. If you would like more information on any of these products, please visit

After reviewing the NanoBeam M5, we’ve given it a 4Gon Rating of nine out of ten. The aesthetics have remained similar to the NanoBridge, but one of the most impressive features is the mounting mechanism. The Ubiquiti NanoBeam M Five offers an improvement on the NanoBridge range, benefitting in higher gain, through a more efficient antenna design and at a lower cost.

So that was our review of the Ubiquiti airMAX NanoBeam M Five. Please visit for the best pricing on the entire Ubiquiti range.
