we've been experimenting with the 5Ghz models:

good result until one chain started acting up. Now it's unstable and the
ubiquiti people agree the hardware is failing. Too bad because we are
out of warranty time and there's no way we can buy those again soon...
I'd say: stay away from expensive equipment with integrated electronics
& antenna. Withe every other solution where the electronics are a
separate device, it's quite cheap to replace that and keep the antennas,
which are the most expensive component most of the time in long shot links.

never heard of it, but it looks really interesting.

Are there any real world implementations or is it just
theoretical/experimental at this point?
