WiFi 6 (802.11ax, AX 3000) wall-mount/desktop wireless access point

The DrayTek VigorAP 906 is a dual-band 802.11ax wireless Access Point suitable for high-density environments where a large number of concurrent Wi-Fi connections need to be supported, such as in classrooms, conferences, offices, public events, etc.

2×2 MU-MIMO and Beamforming features provide excellent Wi-Fi connectivity with a maximum of 3 Gbps aggregated link data rate. The Plug-n-Play Mesh technology in the VigorAP 906 supports up to 7 Mesh node Access Points to be wirelessly interconnected as a Mesh group to provide extended wireless coverage. This can be quickly and easily set up using the built-in Quick Start Wizard or with the free Smartphone app that is available from DrayTek. (check mesh compatible list for more details).

The Wi-Fi Mesh technology in VigorAP 906 improves the reliability of the network with the redundancy features ensuring alternative paths are available in the event of uplink connection failures, so as to maintain the continuity of Wi-Fi services.

The VigorAP 906 features the latest 802.11ax Wi-Fi technology with a combined throughput of 3000 Mbps (2402 Mbps for the 5 GHz band and 574 Mbps for the 2.4 GHz band).

VigorAP 906 can function as the Root AP to scan and auto-provision settings to up to 30 Vigor APs within the same LAN subnet. The 5 Gigabit LAN ports can be divided into two segments, with 4 ports in segment A and 1 port in segment B.

 

Key Features

 

New OFDMA Feature for 802.11ax (WiFi 6) 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.

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.

Manage from DrayTek Wireless App

(This feature will be enabled in firmware version 1.4.6)

DrayTek has produced a Wireless app that allows configuration and management of Wireless Mesh networks from smartphone and tablet devices.

DrayTek’s Wireless app allows network administrators to:

  • Intuitively and easily setup a Vigor Mesh group from scratch.

  • Scan and sync configurations to newly added VigorAPs.
  • Configure the Wi-Fi network for SSID/password, channel, admin password, TR-069, etc.

  • Monitor Mesh node APs for Wi-Fi signal strength and topology.

  • Monitor Wi-Fi clients with device name, signal strength, real-time data rate, etc.
