Ubiquiti Networks is an American technology company started in 2005. Based in San Jose, California they are a manufacturer ofwireless products whose primary focus is on under-served and emerging markets.

Ubiquiti Networks entered the wireless technology market in June 2005, after announcing its "Super Range" mini-PCI radio card series. The SR2 and SR5 cards were adopted byoriginal equipment manufacturers and wireless Internet service providers. Customers included WRAP, Soekris, and Mikrotik. Operating at the 2.4 and 5.8 GHz bands, the "Super Range" modules used the Atheros integrated circuits

In January 2006, Ubiquiti Networks announced Freedom Frequency, which used frequencies as high as 60 GHz on its radio modules. This encouraged the release of the SR9, a separate card operating at 900 MHz non-standard IEEE 802.11 band.

After extending the supported frequencies to the 4.9 GHz band with the SR4 card, Ubiquiti announced the "Xtreme Range" series featuring two more mini-PCI cards, the XR2 and XR5. Robert J. Pera, CEO of Ubiquiti, attributed improvements to sensitivity, temperature rating and noise immunity to the "customer interactions and shared field testing experiences" as well as "real world scenarios using the Linux kernel MadWifi

Ubiquiti Networks introduced the PowerStation in May 2007, its first product to feature an integrated radio/antenna design, In the same year, Ubiquiti released more XR cards for the licensed bands to deal with congestion seen in the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz bands. The company received attention in August 2007 when a group of Italian amateur radio operators set a distance world record for point-to-point links in the 5.8 GHz spectrum. Using two XR5 cards and a pair of 35 dBi dish antennas, the Italian team was able to establish a 304 km (about 188 mi) link at data rates between 4-5 Mbit/s.

In 2008, Ubiquiti announced additions to its 802.11 b/g lineup, including the Bullet, NanoStation, NanoStation Loco, PicoStation and RouterStation. The following year gave rise to airMAX, Ubiquiti’s proprietary MIMO TDMA polling technology. The new protocol presented an entire lineup of radio/antenna systems, building on the 802.11 b/g series, including the Rocket M. Shortly before the end of 2009, Ubiquiti announced the NanoBridge M and AirGrid M.

Over the course of 2010, airMAX World Conferences were held in Europe, Asia, and North and South America, including San Jose, where Ubiquiti headquarters are located. More products, including the AirWire, WifiStation and Power AP N, were released. Ubiquiti also began supporting airMAX products for the 900 MHz and 3 GHz bands. In the fourth quarter, Ubiquiti announced its TOUGHCable, AirSync technology and UniFi indoor wireless system. Using GPS technology, AirSync effectively eliminated AP interference experienced by co-located APs. Nominated by fellow wireless companies at WISPAPALOOZA 2010, Ubiquiti won awards for best manufacturer as well as product of the year In 2010 and 2011, Ubiquiti Networks was chosen as the WISPA Manufacturer of the Year

n 2011, Ubiquiti released new antennas for its M series devices as well as new models for the NanoBridge series. In August, outdoor and mini UniFi APs were announced, as well as AirCam/AirVision, an IP camera/NVR software. For a second consecutive year, Ubiquiti received the WISPA Manufacturer of the Year award. During October, Ubiquiti announced: Rocket/Bullet Titanium, a Rocket M5 with Gigabit Ethernet ports, TOUGHSwitch, a POE switch, EdgeMAX powered by EdgeOS, a routing platform based on Vyatta, UniFi and AirCam Pro series, as well as AirControl, management-software for Ubiquiti equipment.

At their 2012 Chicago AWC, Pera unveiled a new 24 GHz radio platform called AirFiber. AirFiber is able to achieve speeds of up to 1.4 Gbit/s of aggregate speed.
