DrayTek's wireless access points add wireless connectivity to any LAN, as well as providing bridging and repeating facilities for extending Wireless LAN coverage. Industry standard encryption together with various layers of security provide you with a comprehensive feature set for a reliable, secure wireless network.
Entry Level Access Point

The VigorAP 710 is a Wireless Access Point and it provides the ultimate industry standard access to corporate network, the Internet, e-mail and residential wireless network. With mobile workforce demands, VigorAP 710 delivers reliable and secure wireless local area networks (WLANs). The extended range is enabled through its simplified but robust management and configuration. Features:

Affordable IEEE802.11n /2.4GHz WLAN access point
Multiple SSID (up to 4 SSID) for guest wireless access to the Internet
Built-in RADIUS Server for the security enhancement of your wireless network
WDS (Wireless Distribution System) easily extending your network through Point-to-Point / Multi-Point Bridge and Universal Repeater Mode
WMM for Wi-Fi application prioritization DrayTek implements intelligent wireless prioritization technology on VigorAP 710 for best utilization of wireless coverage. VigorAP 710 supports Wi-Fi Multi Media standard (WMM). It is a standard created to define Quality of Service (QoS) in Wi-Fi networks. It is a precursor to the upcoming IEEE 802.11e WLAN QoS draft standard, which is meant to improve audio, video and voice applications transmitted over Wi-Fi. WMM adds prioritized capabilities to Wi-Fi networks and optimizes their performance when multiple concurring applications, each with different latency and throughput requirements, compete for network resources.


Multiple SSID with VLAN tag The VigorAP 710 supports 4 separate SSIDs and virtual LANs (VLANs). As a result, the VigorAP 710 divides itself into several virtual access points all within a single hardware platform. Many mobile networks deployed at corporate offices, hotels, shopping malls or restaurants can take advantage of this technology to support several applications such as public Internet access and inventory management. For example, guests of a company could be given wireless access for the Internet, but they are excluded from any access to the internal data server. For home users, they can set up different authorization for SSIDs to their K12 kids, young adults and parents to avoiding inappropriate contents accessed by underage family members.


Comprehensive WLAN security control You can obtain the MAC addresses of each wireless client from its configuration utility or operating system. You then enter these addresses into a configuration page of VigorAP 710. When MAC address filtering is activated, VigorAP 710 performs additional check for wireless clients to prevent network breaking. Clients within the authenticated list will be able to join with the WLAN. Those who are not on the list will be denied while VigorAP 710 receives their request to join the WLAN. With industry level security standards for wireless user authentication and data encryption, 802.11i (WPA2) offers strengthened and interoperable wireless networking security. The activation of 802.1x RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-in User Service) allows you centrally manage and store user names and passwords. You can ensure that only legitimate clients can be associated with corporate RADIUS servers.


WDS for unlimited coverage extendibility The VigorAP 710 can extend over large areas (alike shopping mall) by its "WDS" (wireless distribution system). WDS takes care of the establishment of WLAN network with "point-to-point" and "point-to-multipoint" bridging and repeater modes. The repeater mode provides extend wireless access to additional clients where there is a relay AP repeats signal from a base AP to distant clients. The bridge-to-bridge mode allows two wired networks to be connected across some distance. The detachable antenna will let you replace with DrayTek antennas for directional signal shaping or mounting flexibility.




The DrayTek AP-710 can act as a standalone wireless access point, ideal for adding wireless connectivity to an existing LAN but also operates in several other wireless modes:

Bridge


Two networks can be bridged where it is not possible to run cables, for example, across a road (assuming sites are within wireless range of each other). Both locations remain within the same IP subnet.
Universal Repeater

The AP-710 is placed within wireless range of another access point and can then extend the coverage of that network.

Standard WDS



User Authentication

For additional security, wireless access can be restricted to authorised users only by use of a unique username and password for each user. This is in addition the encryption provided by WEP/WPA etc. When the user first opens their wireless connection, the AP-710 will request their username/password and not permit access to the LAN or Internet without it.

The AP-710 can use an external radius server to hold user credentials but also has its own built-in radius server to store up to 96 users. The AP-710's built-in Radius server can also act as a server to additional devices (such as another AP-710, meaning that you don't need to set up the same users up on several units).

With a stable and extendable wireless network, both business and home/SOHO users can easily utilize and enjoy high-bandwidth applications, such as ERP/CRM, VoIP, video on demand, e-learning (e.g. iTune U), and so much more. The VigorAP 810 is a wireless Access Point (AP) with MIMO technology and Power over Ethernet (PoE) support. That means you can have most advance wireless network standard for the coverage backward compatible with 802.11b/g standard. Moreover, you would have easy AP installation no matter where the power plug is. At last but not least, VigorAP 810 delivers reliable and secure wireless local area networks (WLANs) through the simplified but robust management and configuration. See below for more feature details. Features:

PoE for easy installation
WMM for Wi-Fi application prioritization
SSID + 2 VLAN groups for workplace security & parental control
Comprehensive WLAN security control
WDS for unlimited coverage extendibility
Embedded USB printer server
TR-069-supported VigorAP810 can work with TR-069 VigorACS SI Central Management
PoE for easy installation Power over Ethernet (PoE) support eases the installation by running only one cable to VigorAP 810 to deliver both data and power. You can mount VigorAP 810 to the place which is best for extending coverage without considering if there is ready access to a power plug. Of course, you can also use the included AC adapter if power is available nearby.

Embedded USB printer server You can connect a printer to the USB port of VigorAP 810 for users from wired PC or wireless network. i.e. The laptop users can access printer for printing. When you are using a pair of VigorAP 810s to make a bridge, the said printer can be installed elsewhere in your office/ home.


TR-069-supported VigorAP810 can work with TR-069 VigorACS SI Central Management The VigorAP 810 is TR-069 base. Hence, you can host VigorACS SI Central Management to manage several VigorAP 810 which were deployed remotely.




WDS & Repeater Modes

The DrayTek AP-810 can act as a standalone wireless access point, ideal for adding wireless connectivity to an existing LAN but also operates in several other wireless modes to provide enlarged wireless coverage or wireless bridges to other parts of your LAN. Many different configurations are possible:

Bridge


This mode joins two parts of the same logical network which cannot be otherwise connected by cables, for example between two adjacent buildings. As the AP-810 has a built-in 4-Port switch, you can then connect up to 4 wired devices/PCs directly to it:
Universal Repeater

As a repeater, the AP-810 can extend the wireless coverage of a network. You can add multiple units to extend the range in multiple directions or multiple hops (for best performance, more than two is not recommended due to latency and channel congestion which can result).



In the diagram above, there are two AP-810's to extend the range in different directions



Station Mode


In 'Station Mode' a remote station (computer or other device) can connect to the AP-810 using a regular ethernet cable, but the AP-810 connects to the remote LAN over wireless. The AP-810 has a built-in 4-port Ethernet switch so you can connect up to 4 client devices directly by wired Ethernet (100BaseT RJ45):


Station mode can also be used for games consoles or other Multimedia devices:

User Authentication


For additional security, wireless access can be restricted to authorised users only by use of a unique username and password for each user. This is in addition the encryption provided by WEP/WPA etc. When the user first opens their wireless connection, the AP-810 will request their username/password and not permit access to the LAN or Internet without it.

The AP-810 can use an external radius server to hold user credentials but also has its own built-in radius server to store up to 96 users. The AP-810's built-in Radius server can also act as a server to additional devices (such as another AP-700, meaning that you don't need to set up the same users up on several units).

The DrayTek Vigor AP-910c is a wireless access point which can be operated in standalone or centrally managed/monitored mode (with the use of a central DrayTek management product - see later). The AP-910cis a high specification professional access point providing reliable and flexible coverage to all manner of applications.  A vast array of security and management features helps the AP-910c improve and protect flexibility and integrity of your wireless LAN. The VigorAP-910c is ideal for adding wireless connectivity to an existing LAN, or for expanding the range of an existing wireless LAN by using the WDS repeater features.

The ceiling format of the unit means that it can provide unobstructed coverage to the area around it and aesthetically blends into any home or office environment thanks to its shape, size and hidden cable entry.  The AP-910c can also be wall mounted. For both options, a circular mounting plate (included with the unit) is fitted and then the AP-910c is attached.  The AP-910c can be used together with our other access points (AP-710, AP-810 and AP-910c).

Simultaneous Dual-Band Operation & Extended 5Ghz Bands The Vigor AP-910c supports simultaneous operation of the common 2.4Ghz band and the new 5Ghz band. The 5Ghz band is far less congested so if your PCs or other devices support the 5Ghz band, you can use that. The Vigor AP-910c operates both bands at the same time, so your devices can use either band and each has its own bandwidth so overall wireless capacity is also increased. The 5Ghz supports the full range of extended domestic 5Ghz channels, due to its support for DFS/TPC. You can select all 5Ghz channels up to channel 140, as opposed to just the 4 'Band A-Lower' channels (which provides only two non-overlapping channels @ 80Mhz channel width).

Mounting & Coverage The AP-910c is designed to be installed on ceilings in order to serve the area below it.  The cables (Ethernet or Power) can reach theAP-910c from the rear or the side. For solid ceiling fixing a backplate is supplied. The backplate fixes to the ceiling and the AP-910cthen clips in.  Alternatively, T-Bar mounts enable quick and easy attachments to suspended ceilings (see photo below).  The AP-910ccan also be wall-mounted - keyhole slots on the back allowing any orientation.

Beeping Access Point Locating all of your access points optimally helps ensure you have everywhere covered.  Once the units are installed, to help you identifying each access points, you can switch on a beeper inside each unit.  The unit will then beep so that you can locate it easily.

Wireless Security & VLANs The AP-910c features multiple levels of wireless security. Encryption using WEP, WPA, WPA2 (802.11i) is available you can also use the access control list (ACL) to specify the hardware addresses of clients which are permitted to connect (by MAC hardware address). Any unauthorised hardware is refused access.

For additional user authentication, you can activate 802.1x RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-in User Service) which allows you to centrally manage and store user names and passwords either within the AP-910c setup itself (thus not needing any external server) on an external radius server which can permit time limited, temporary or continuous access to your clients as required.

The Vigor AP-910c supports the 802.1q VLAN protocol so that if it is connected to an 802.1q enabled LAN, it can split tagged data (whether its different subnets or intended for different users) and broadcast each on its own SSID. This means, for example, that your guest WiFi access is provided on a separate isolated SSID with no access to your company data.



WMM - WiFi Multimedia The AP-910c implements intelligent wireless traffic prioritization for the most efficient management of wireless traffic by using the Wi-Fi Multimedia standard (WMM). WMM defines Quality of Service (QoS) in Wi-Fi networks. It is a precursor to the upcoming IEEE 802.11e WLAN QoS standard, intended to improve timing critical applications such as audio, video and voice applications over WiFi. WMM adds prioritized capabilities to Wi-Fi networks and optimizes their performance when multiple concurrent applications, each with different latency and throughput requirements, compete for network resources.

Power-over-Ethernet The AP-910c supports PoE (802.3af Power over Ethernet) as standard (built-in) so if the AP-910c is connected to a PoE-enabled Ethernet switch or PoE injector, you don't need any local power to the unit (power supply) - the AP-910c will take its power from the Ethernet cable.  The AP-910c supports Gigabit PoE (if you have a Gigabit PoE switch/injector) such as our VigorSwitch P2261 or P-1090 models (or any other 802.3af device). PoE is ideal for situations where you do not have mains power available in the exact location where you want to install the AP-910c or just for general aesthetic neatness, perhaps where the AP-910c is installed somewhere prominent. 



The AP-910c is also supplied with an AC/DC mains PSU for installations where you are not using PoE.

The VigorAP 920R is an 802.11ac Wave 2 access point, which improves performance by increasing the amount of data that can be sent at one time. The 802.11ac Wave 2 standard includes Multi User MIMO (Multiple In, Multiple Out) or MU-MIMO technology, which builds upon MIMO technology.

The VigorAP's MU-MIMO technology when used with MU-MIMO capable wireless clients, allows each of the antennas (or Spatial Streams) to send data to separate wireless clients, which can potentially double the data transmission rate to clients. This is because instead of spending each transmission slot transmitting to a single client regardless of whether that client can support one or both of the VigorAP's streams, the VigorAP can spend that time slot sending data out to two clients, that each use a single spatial stream.


One limitation of wireless throughput is the wireless frequency space, which is shared between everyone. A wireless access point sending out data can only send to a single wireless client at a time.

Once an access point has enough clients connected, the amount of data that can be sent out is divided amonst each wireless client requesting data, with this congestion causing slower transfer speeds as the AP has to spend more time servicing every client. Multi User MIMO allows the VigorAP to send data out to more than one wireless client at a time, so potentially the amount of data that can be sent is divided between the VigorAP's Spatial Streams instead of the access point and its assigned wireless frequency as a whole.

This is particularly useful in locations with many phones, tablet and laptops connecting, where the VigorAP's more efficient transmissions could allow each access point to serve more clients than an 802.11ac Wave 1 or 802.11n access point.

AP-Assisted Client Mobility

A wireless network covering a large area is usually made up of several Wireless Access Points (APs), to provide coverage between rooms and avoid wireless dead spots.
A wireless client, such as a Laptop, Phone or Tablet, when moving around a building or outdoors, is typically expected to make the decision of when to uncouple from one wireless access point and re-connect to a closer one. In some cases, a client will try to stay connected to an AP even when that client has moved outside of the AP's optimal range, which can result in longer wait times for videos to buffer and pages to load.


The VigorAP 920R can work in conjunction with VigorAP access points and DrayTek Vigor routers, managing the connection quality of wireless devices, to ensure that the wireless clients maintain a stronger and quicker wireless link when moving around.

When moving a device such as a tablet between the optimal ranges of a DrayTek Vigor 2862ac router and two VigorAP 920R access points, the router and access points share details of the tablet's connection strength.
If the tablet moves away from the router, the router can detect if the tablet would have a stronger signal if it was connected to a nearer VigorAP, and when this occurs, the tablet is moved off of the router's wireless, allowing it to quickly re-connect to the closer VigorAP and continue what it was doing with higher throughput and less chance of lagging.

Band Steering

Band Steering is designed to 'steer' wireless clients that support both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands to the faster and less congested 5GHz bands, when possible. This can improve the connection experience for clients for both 2.4GHz only devices and dual-band capable clients; With 5GHz capable devices using the faster 5GHz band, the remaining 2.4GHz clients would experience less collisions and congestion.


The total capacity (number of clients that can connect) is increased by sharing clients more evenly between each Access Point's band. With clients more evenly distributed between both the APs 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands, the overall utilisation of the throughput with each Vigor Access Point is increased.

Mobile Device Management

Mobile Device Management (MDM for short) is a feature that allows a VigorAP to determine what type of device is connecting, with details of the device manufacturer and operating system that the device is running.

Using this information, the VigorAP can apply policies to either block or allow clients of specified types for specific SSIDs, building on the VigorAP's MAC based Access Control List with an automated system that can automatically block devices of a specific type.


In the example below, mobile devices are not allowed to connect to the office's wireless network (SSID1).

The VigorAP's Mobile Device Management policy has detected that a device connecting to the "Office" wireless network is a phone, and blocks its connection to the "Office" network. The "Guest" wireless network is not restricted, so this phone can reconnect to the Guest wireless network.

DrayTek Mesh Wireless

Mesh Wireless links VigorAP access points across both Wi-Fi and Wired links to cover a large area with a single Wireless network, spanning multiple Wireless Access Points and easily managed from the Mesh Root VigorAP or with the DrayTek Wireless app.


The Mesh Root VigorAP links up to your existing Internet router, such as the DrayTek Vigor 2862 and additional VigorAPs join up as Mesh Nodes, which connect wirelessly to the Mesh Root.

Your devices see a single Wi-Fi network (SSID) and connect to the nearest VigorAP in the Mesh, instead of a distant Wi-Fi network with low signal. Internet connectivity relays through the Mesh, using the up to 866Mbps 5GHz wireless as the backhaul link, to relay between Mesh Nodes and avoid long waits for downloads.

Central Management with DrayTek VigorACS

The DrayTek VigorAP 903 can be managed by the DrayTek VigorACS central management system - a cloud platform which can manage most DrayTek products - routers, wireless access points and Ethernet switches, giving you complete visibility and control of your DrayTek product estate, even without a DrayTek Vigor router on site.

The DrayTek VigorACS management system can be used to configure and provision DrayTek VigorAP access points, similarly to performing these actions through the VigorAP's web interface, with a familiar menu layout in the Configuration section of VigorACS.


Profiles for groups of access points can be provisioned in VigorACS by selecting a VigorACS network, then accessing Configuration > AP Profile to configure profiles and apply them selectively.

DrayTek's VigorACS management monitors the VigorAP 903, with a Dashboard view giving a central overview of the most important information from the VigorAP's current status.

Central Management with a DrayTek Router

The VigorAP 903 can operate in standalone autonomous mode, but can also form part of a centrally managed wireless installation by adding a compatible DrayTek wireless controller such as the Vigor 2862 router. This enables you to centrally control, manage and administer multiple AP devices installed around your building/campus. Management also enables efficient usage of your wireless access point through load-balancing, whereby wireless clients are distributed across several access points to reduce congestion.


The DrayTek router operating as the wireless controller can provision DrayTek VigorAP access points using the Central AP Management profiles configured on the router, with an option to Auto Provision - auto configuring newly installed VigorAP access points with the Auto Provisioning profile, upon initial connection to the DrayTek Vigor router's network.
