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.

Wireless Virtual Controller


Flexible Auto-Configuration

This feature detects the type of AP, wired or wireless, and determines the most appropriate network topology automatically. For smaller wireless networks with fewer than 8 APs, the controller enables Mesh mode seamlessly; while in larger networks with more than 8 wired and wireless APs, the AP management mode will be activated for enhanced controllability and scalability.

Wireless Device Monitoring

The monitoring page provides a comprehensive view of network devices, showing the status of each AP in the mesh and wired network, such as WLAN clients, MAC, IP address, Status, SSIDs, number of clients, on or offline, firmware version, etc. This enables network administrators to manage and optimize the network with ease.

Zero Touch Deployment

With the auto-configuration feature, APs can be added to the nodes in the management groups with ease, and the Root AP will auto-detect the APs that are newly deployed.

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.

Ethernet and Wireless 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

DrayTek

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

Pros

  • Less performance decay

Cons

  • Limited wireless coverage
  • Require physical wire to connect to the Ethernet


Range Extender

DrayTek

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

Pros

  • Compatibility among different brands
  • Extend wireless coverage

Cons

  • No self-healing uplinks
  • Need to install and check manually
  • Performance decay


Mesh

DrayTek

  • 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.

Pros

  • Easy installation
  • Self-healing uplinks
  • Extend wireless coverage

Cons

  • No compatibility among different brands
  • Performance decay
