Key Features

New OFDMA Feature for 802.11ax wireless AP

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.

Product Highlights

Cloud Managed

Managed by VigorACS/VigorConnect for configuration provisioning, clients statistics, firmware upgrade and configuration backup.

AirTime Fairness

Ensure every client has equal probability to access the channel.

WPA3 Optimized

Enjoy highest security standard without compromising on wireless performance.

WPA3 Optimized

Enjoy highest security standard without compromising on wireless performance.

Mobile Device Management

Create device-specific rules to block/allow connection. Monitor and track clients activities and connectivity.

Built-in RADIUS Server

VigorAP 960C can be a RADIUS Server, maintains user profile database for local and external 802.1x authentication.

AP-Assisted Roaming – built-in in 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 Range Extender Mesh

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

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

  • 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.
