Ubiquiti Networks has introduced their latest addition to the Open Product Platform, the PowerStation2. The PowerStation2 is the world's first platform designed for OpenWrt and it's the world's first open 802.11 product platform specifically tuned for outdoor wireless communities. The product embodies a combination of Ubiquiti's innovations in radio, antenna, and industrial design.
Integrated with the radio is an embedded hi-gain antenna based on Ubiquiti's patent-pending Adaptive Antenna Polarity (AAP) technology. With AAP technology, the antenna can be statically software switched between vertical and horizontal polarities. In addition, an adaptive mode allows for the beam polarities to be switched dynamically on the fly for improved performance in heavy noise environments. In the case of PowerStation2 (2.4GHz), all of this is done utilizing a single, efficient 18dBi antenna with better than 25dB polarity isolation.
