Wireless networking has evolved considerably in recent years, offering faster, more accessible WiFi for businesses and homes.   We all now expect to be able to “log on” in Hotels, Coffee Shops, at work, at home and just about everywhere else. For individuals and organisations looking to implement a wireless network, the traditional wireless router is frequently not up to the task as high speed, and site-wide WiFi coverage is now a core requirement.

Our friends at DrayTek fully understand this and are one of the market leaders in Managed Wireless solutions, offering a simple install, flexibility for all the different types of users, site-wide coverage with supreme performance. DrayTek’s managed wireless solution delivers the latest high speed wireless “AC” (case studies available), reliable connectivity through the 2.4 & 5GHz range and a portfolio of devices that all work together to create the network fine-tuned to your needs.

DrayTek Managed Wireless Goals

The core principles are as follows:

  • Mobility – providing a single WiFi network across multiple access points (Wireless AC -also backwards compatible with previous wireless platforms). This allows individuals to log on in one part of the network, and then move throughout the campus or building without losing connection.
  • Simplicity in provisioning and ongoing management — a network administrator can set up the network using the provisioning tool and then troubleshoot or make adds/moves/changes simply from a central controller.
  • Cost-Effectiveness – DrayTek business-class routers and the DrayTek solution set consists of a range of Managed Wireless access points to suit the budget and/or environment.
