airFiber Wireless and Duplex Modes

Wireless Modes

airFiber radios are super-high performance Point-to-Point systems, so one unit must be the Master and the other unit must be the Slave

Note: When the radios are running in Half-Duplex mode, it's recommended to always set the same Wireless Mode in all the units located at a specific location. 


Duplex Modes

airFiber radios can operate in Full-Duplex (FDD) or Half-Duplex (HDD) mode. Full-Duplex offers the highest performance and lower latency (below 1ms) but requires perfect Line of Sight and perfect alignment in most cases. On the other hand, Half-Duplex mode is more tolerant to misalignment and in certain cases can work in nLoS (near LoS) scenarios, especially in lower frequencies, like in 2.4GHz (AF-2X).

Here's a table showing different Wireless Duplex Modes for each model:

  Full-Duplex (FDD) Half-Duplex (HDD)
AF-2X - Yes
AF-3X - Yes
AF-4X - Yes
AF-5X - Yes
AF-5/5U Yes Yes
AF-24/24HD Yes Yes
AF-11FX Yes -
