UBNT airFiber 60 LR Setup and Configuration

1. Hardware Setup:

  • Mount the airFiber 60 LR units in a suitable outdoor location, ensuring a clear line of sight between them.
  • Connect the units to power using the included PoE (Power over Ethernet) adapters.
  • Use shielded Ethernet cables to connect the PoE adapters to the airFiber units and to your network equipment.

2. Initial Configuration:

  • Connect a computer to the LAN port of one of the airFiber units using an Ethernet cable.
  • Set a static IP address on your computer in the same subnet as the airFiber unit (e.g.,
  • Open a web browser and enter the default IP address of the airFiber unit (e.g., in the address bar.
  • Log in using the default username and password (ubnt/ubnt).

3. Basic Configuration:

  • Once logged in, go to the “Network” tab and configure the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway for the airFiber unit.
  • Go to the “Wireless” tab and configure the wireless settings, including the SSID and security settings.

4. Alignment and Link Establishment:

  • Use the airFiber’s alignment tool (available in the web interface) to align the units for optimal signal strength.
  • Monitor the signal strength and quality indicators in the web interface to ensure a stable connection.

5. Advanced Configuration (Optional):

  • Explore the advanced settings in the web interface to optimize the performance of your airFiber link, such as channel width, modulation, and encryption settings.
  • Configure any additional features you may need, such as VLANs, QoS, or SNMP.

6. Security Configuration:

  • Enable security features such as firewall rules, access control, and secure management protocols (e.g., HTTPS) to protect your airFiber units from unauthorized access.

7. Testing and Optimization:

  • Conduct speed tests and signal tests to ensure that the airFiber link is performing as expected.
  • Adjust settings as necessary to optimize performance and stability.

8. Monitoring and Maintenance:

  • Regularly monitor the performance and health of your airFiber link using the web interface.
  • Keep the firmware of your airFiber units up to date to ensure compatibility and security.

This is a general guide, and the exact steps may vary depending on your specific deployment scenario and requirements. Refer to the official Ubiquiti airFiber documentation for detailed instructions and troubleshooting tips.
