DrayTek VigorAP 903 is a wireless access point with a 5-port switch for expanding the network wirelessly. LAN clients can join the network from one of the 5 Gigabit ports or the wireless connection. It is designed to provide a smooth wireless connection by supporting 802.11ac wave2 standard and providing advanced features, such as AirTime Fairness, Band Steering, and AP-Assisted Roaming.
VigorAP 903 helps you to deliver connectivity to every corner of the building without wires. By a few clicks on the App, they can automatically connect to each other to build a mesh topology, and clients can access the network via any of the VigorAP 903. The meshing technology adds redundancy and reliability to your network. In the event of connection failure, VigorAP 903 will dynamically route the traffic to an alternative path.
Concurrent dual-band & band steering
VigorAP903 runs on 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency band simultaneously, allows more concurrent Wi-Fi clients, and benefits from the fast speed of 5GHz and the long-range signal of 2.4GHz at the same time to meet the needs of various network applications. The support of Band Steering feature helps you to direct the 5G-compatible stations to the less-interference 5GHz WLAN, so that they can enjoy the faster Wi-Fi speed, and leave the 2.4GHZ WLAN less-crowded, which will results in better Wi-Fi experience for all the clients.
Secure your business network
With VigorAP 903, you may have up to 8 SSIDs mapping to different (virtual) local networks and have different security settings. You may want an SSID for the visitors with only the Internet access and just secured by a Pre-Shared Key, at the same time, have another SSID for the staff to access internal resources, and requires client authentication by username and password. The built-in RADIUS server feature allows VigorAP 903 to do 802.1x authentication based on the local user database, which can also be used by other devices on the network, e.g., a router.
Easy setup & monitoring
DrayTek has developed an App for setting up the mesh network with VigorAP 903, the user-friendly interface allows a quick setup even for non-tech savvy. Except for the App, Vigor AP 903 supports both stand-alone setup and controllerbased setup. For deploying just up a few access points only, the configuration can be done directly on the AP's web user interface. VigorAP903 is also compliant with DrayTek's centralized management too, the VigorACS, and the central AP management features of selected Vigor Router.
Improving roaming between aps
VigorAP 903 provides "AP-Assisted Roaming" to make sure the clients are connecting to the best AP on the WLAN. VigorAP 903 continuously monitors the data rate and receiving signal strength of its clients to check if they are still in the effective transmitting range and would automatically disassociate those who are out of the range.
