MS (Distribution) UK Ltd are official distributors and resellers for Ubiquiti Networks, MikroTik, RF Armor, PC Engines, RF Elements, Tycon Power Systems and Jirous among others.
We are providers of quality professional wireless networking and wired networking products and solutions (such as Ubiquiti Networks (UBNT), MikroTik RouterBoard and PC Engines ALIX with the philosophy of providing wireless network engineers with professional best value networking solutions, supported by our own wireless and network engineers and technical staff; most of which are RSGB radio amateurs.
Along with our main hardware product lines we provide many other wireless networking accessories, sundries and unique product lines designed to make wireless installation easier for our customers. We focus on wireless hardware products and accessories used by professional installers and the wireless trade, such as Ubiquiti UniFi, Ubiquiti AirMAX and MikroTik Routers.
Our main product lines are Ubiquiti and MikroTik; but we pride ourselves in not just being a distributor but also engineers providing advice and guidance on the subject of wireless networking, routing and radio to our customers’ engineers, while also building customised solutions for our customers, fulfilling our customer’s most challenging scenarios and requirements and meeting all expectations time after time.
We distribute WiFi antennas for the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz WiFi. This includes 2.4 GHz antenna, 5.8 GHz antenna, dual-band antenna and MIMO Antenna along with coax cables and coax connectors, with the in-house ability to also build custom coax cables to almost any specification, usually for next day delivery.
Although we do not stock products outside the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz spectrum we are not limited to these technologies. With our relations with manufacturers and distributors across the globe we are able to source almost any wireless hardware for almost any technical specification, from the benign to the most outrageous requirement.
Included in our expertise and experience are Point-to-Point (PtP) links, where we can provide high quality low cost radio PtP links such as Ubiquiti NanoBridge and MikroTik to high-end enterprise and carrier class links for wireless backhaul networks such as SAF Tehnika, Sub 10 Systems, RepeatIT, and Siklu Communications on licensed frequencies (see OfCom).
We distribute MikroTik and PC Engines ALIX router boards and system boards in addition to their respective sundries such as expansion boards, coax pigtails, indoor and outdoor enclosures and antenna mountings. Our PC Engines ALIX range includes Wistron, Compex and Ubiquiti wireless mini-PCI 802.11 radios, PSUs, Power-over-Ethernet adaptors and RF pigtails.
In addition to wireless hardware we also have an interest in added value services for WISPs such as VoIP and WiFi CCTV surveillance systems, with our own in-house expert consultants and advisors.
Our coax RF connector range includes the less common reverse polarity (RP) and bulkhead versions of N-Type, SMA, TNC and BNC coax connectors as well as the standard plugs (male) and jacks (female) coax connectors. We offer next day delivery for custom coax cable assemblies using LMR195, LMR400 and LMR600 coax cables focussing principally on Times Microwave, with a budget competitive brand as an alternative. We can provide coax cable in cut lengths from 5cm to 100 metre drums. We also carry waterproof Cat5e/Cat6 Ubiquiti tough cable and connectors from stock.
We offer Leaky Feeder radiating cable as an alternative WiFi solution, complete with RF amplifiers and coax connection sets, including 2 watt 50ohm terminator resistors. Leaky Feeder provides a very effective alternative to WiFi antenna in certain situations.
We offer the complete range of MikroTik RouterBOARDS which are available in different physical size formats. The MikroTik RouterBOARDS are particularly suited to industrial applications and more general WiFi applications where a wireless system board is required. PC Engines ALIX Boards have models with more than one mini-PCI slot allowing system boards to be used for dual-radio deployments in one outdoor enclosure, receiving using a 5.8 GHz antenna for the backhaul link and providing local wireless distribution on 2.4GHz using a 2.4GHz WiFi antenna. Two radios are used, one for 2.4GHz and one for 5.8 GHz: many of the wireless mini-PCI radios can operate in both bands and are configured via the web browser software, but note that one radio won’t operate on 2.4 and 5.8 GHz at the same time. PC Engines and MikroTik router boards are noted for their solid design and reliability.
In addition to the many wireless radio and antenna products we also supply wireless accessories such as Power-over-Ethernet rackmount midspan injectors, and the new RF Armor antenna sheilding products for Ubiquiti Networks products. In addition to our PoE range we are now also stocking more wireless power management systems such as the PowerTxt remote SMS power controller.
Our experience with WiFi antenna is based on our own experience installing them. An expensive 13 dBi omni antenna with an international brand name will perform no better than a well engineered 13 dBi omni made by any other manufacturer. There are variations in quality of finish, solidity of mounting brackets, longevity and robustness and we have gone to great lengths to source WiFi antenna that meet professional standards of quality and element precision so they may be installed with confidence by resellers. 5.8 GHz antenna is more exacting and precision manufacture is absolutely critical for good performance.
