VigorConnect

TR-069 Based Local Network Management for DrayTek’s APs and Switches

VigorConnect is a TR-069 based management system to manage up to 100 DrayTek’s APs/switches on the local network. It will allow the network administrator to monitor, manage and configure these devices installed on the local network.
This management tool is suitable for businesses having multiple DrayTek’s APs and switches located within the building on the local LAN. It is free and is suitable for small networks not requiring the advanced functionality of a central management system such as VigorACS 2.

Current firmware, V1.1.2 supports AP management; switch management will be supported in later firmware.


VigorConnect – AP Management

VigorConnect software provides centralized AP management for DrayTek TR-069 based access points. Features include device status, monitor status of devices and performing scheduled tasks such as firmware upgrade, configuration backup/restore and parameter profile for mass deployment of AP devices.
