Lightweight AP with business grade performance
VigorAP 960C is an 802.11ax ceiling-mount wireless Access Point. With speed up to 1.2 Gbps in 5GHz band and 600Mbps in 2.4GHz band, this AP is suitable for high density environments. It can be cloud-managed by VigorACS, and also act as the Mesh Root AP to manage up to 7 Mesh node APs in a LAN.

WPA3 Optimized
Support higher security standard without compromising on wireless performance.

Dual-Band
Concurrent 5GHz and 2.4GHz

AX1800
Delivers speed up to 1.8 Gbps

256 Users
Max. Number of Concurrent Active Users, 128 per band

1x LAN Port
1 x 10/100/1000M Base-T RJ-45 PoE-PD Support

Mesh
Easily link to other VigorAP to expand the wireless network.

Assisted Wi-Fi Roaming
Solve the sticky client problem and improve Wi-Fi roaming experience.

PoE Power Supply
Simplify the infrastructure by getting data and power through a single cable.

Wi-Fi Scheduling
Schedule Wi-Fi On and Off to control wireless access and save energy.

Multiple SSID
Mapping Wi-Fi clients to different VLANs and have a different set of security standards Learn how

Local RADIUS Server
The internal RADIUS server allows user authentication for the wireless devices with a user profile database.

Airtime Fairness
Provide equal amount of air-time to all clients regardless of data rates, and prevent some clients from clogging up the network and to improve effective wireless speeds.

Hotspot Web Portal
Market your business and communicate with the guests while offering hospitality WLAN.

Band Steering
Redirect 5GHz-capable devices to the 5GHz radio to get a faster speed.

Central AP Management
Manage, maintain, and monitor VigorAP 960C from the DrayTek routers.

Higher Transmission Efficiency with OFDMA
OFDMA has been used in LTE for many years, and is now available in 802.11ax for multi-user mode.

With legacy OFDM, each frame is transmitted across the entire channel width. When the transmission rate is low, this causes more latency and jitters and lower the overall efficiency.

OFDMA splits a single frame into groups of subcarriers, and each subcarrier can be sent simultaneously. With multiple access mode, it allows multiple users to transmit at the same time thus improving efficiency and enhancing user experiences in high density environments.

Mobile Device Management
Station List and Allow/Block List
The VigorAP records details of associated devices, including signal strength, airtime, link rate, data usage, etc. Network administrators can track clients’ connectivity and activities history on a panel. Allow/Block Lists can be created with MAC address or device type options to block suspicious activities.

Nearby Station Analytics
The VigorAP records signal strength against MAC addresses of both associated and non-associated devices nearby. This information helps network administrators to understand signal levels and network conditions for visitors, and to modify wireless network settings, such as access or client messages, for their business or organization.

AP-Assisted Roaming – built-in in selected Wi-Fi Vigor Routers and all Vigor Access Points

Extend Transmission Range
When a Wi-Fi client moves out of its effective transmission range which is defined by the Basic Rate and/or Received Signal Strength threshold, the AP forces the Wi-Fi client to pick up a nearby access point with stronger signals thereby extending the range.

Improve Data Rates
When the “Minimum RSSI with Adjacent AP” option is set, APs or routers on the same local subnet will exchange client information with each other and switch to the AP or router that has the strongest signal, ensuring that data rates can be as good as possible.

Better User Experience
Instead of ineffective transmission with low basic rates or RSSI, the better links provide better user experience while saving the airtime.

No Controller Required
Assisted Roaming is a built-in feature in all Vigor Access Points and a number of Wi-Fi routers; it saves the need for an ad-hoc wireless controller and is an ideal solution for simple network deployments.

LAN Management
An all-in-one management platform for Vigor devices on the LAN side.

Automatic Device Discovery
Connect a Vigor Switch or AP to the LAN side of the Vigor Router, and the router will auto-discover the device to allow it to be managed.

Provisioning
Basic settings may be done on the Vigor Router, and then provisioned to the managed Vigor Switches or APs.

Monitoring
The Vigor Router provides a centralized view of managed devices, so you can monitor and check the status of Vigor Switches or APs connected.

System Maintenance
Perform factory resets, save/restore configuration backups, or trigger reboots remotely from the Vigor Router’s interface. There is no need to log in to each device’s management page.

Three Modes in One Vigor Access Point

AP Mode. The mode mostly used
VigorAP acts as a bridge between wireless devices and wired Ethernet network, and exchanges data between them.

Range Extender. VigorAP act as a wireless repeater
It can be a Station and an AP at the same time

Mesh. Wirelessly connect 1~8 APs, and form a Mesh Group
A mesh network creates a set of links automatically and calculate the most optimal wireless path through the wireless network back to a wired Mesh Root.
