Description

Mesh Nodes are automatically configured in a VigorMesh network once they've been adopted by a Mesh Root. The mesh nodes status and other information can be viewed via the DrayTek Wireless App or the Mesh Roots Web Interface. Local Temperature Logging and AlarmAs your VigorAP 903 unit(s) will be distributed around your building, it's an ideal opportunity to also gather environmental information about those locations. By the addtition of an optional USB temperature sensor, your VigorAP 903 can report real-time local temperature information, show the previous 24 hour's chart and also set high/low alarms to alert/log if the temperature falls above or below your set levels. This facility is ideal for detecting if any part of your building is over or under-heated or if heating/cooling has been left on overnight and therefore helping to make more efficient use of your heating or cooling energy consumption, potentially saving cost. We tested two VigorAP 1000C APs together, as well as a VigorAP 903 access point, and a Vigor2862 router. We tested with the Android mobile app (Draytek Wireless) on a Pixel 3XL, the VigorConnect software on a Windows 10 laptop, and directly via the 1000C web interface. We used LAN Speed Test v4.4 for speed testing, as well as the inbuilt VigorAP 1000C utility. High performance 1266Mbps AC access point with Multi-User MIMO, which improves transfer speeds and efficiency.

The VigorConnect software was also fiddly, and not really worth the trouble. The easiest and most consistent method was to use the web interface for the 1000C to do the setup, as well as adding new nodes. Setting our Vigor2862ac router as the mesh root and using it to manage the nodes was also straightforward – though it doesn't provide the option to speed test between nodes, as found in the 1000C interface. For home use there are cheaper mesh networking options, but for an expanding business, the VigorAP 1000C makes a lot of sense. It’s fast and relatively easy to deploy, and can operate on its own. Or alternatively, it can link in to become an integral part of the larger DrayTek Vigor family and help create a robust but manageable network. The mesh nodes status and other information can be viewed via the DrayTek Wireless App or the Mesh Root's Web Interface. Klarna Bank AB (publ) is Authorised by the Swedish Financial Services Authority (Finansinspektionen) and is subject to limited regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority. VigorAP 903 is a high-performance Mesh Wireless solution, designed to expand the wireless coverage, eliminate Wi-Fi dead zones and significantly reduce the cost of network deployments. It can also be used as a traditional access point either managed or stand alone so has the flexibility to be used how you need it.Details about the extent of our regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority are available from us on request. Wave 2 Wireless AP - The VigorAP 903 is a simultaneous dual-band AP with 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi, improving transfer speeds & efficiency with Multi-User MIMO. The 5 Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports provide a Gigabit uplink for wireless access, and connectivity for additional network devices such as IP phones and printers. Connect a USB printer to share it, or connect an optional USB thermometer for temperature logging and alerts. The VigorAP 1000C has an in-depth web interface, which allows management of its very large number of features. (Image credit: Future) Setup and web interface Station Control - Time limit wireless connectivity per Station (e.g. 1 hour) & set allowed Reconnection time (e.g. 1 day) The Mesh Root VigorAP is configured through the Web interface, or with the DrayTek Wireless app to operate as a Mesh Root, which can then add in any Mesh Nodes.

In general, the access points worked fine, but in our repeated tests we did run into a few annoyances during setup. The solution was inevitably to factory reset the device in question, and add it to the mesh again. It’s also worth making sure all access points are running the latest firmware, and if in doubt, factory reset again, even from new. A wired uplink could be used in a situation where you need to add a Mesh Node in an area that is too far away to receive a signal from other mesh nodes. For example, to an outdoor area or if you are placing a node on a different floor to the rest of the devices. In case of a node failure, the surrounding access points automatically reconnect and resume service without downtime. The ability to view connection strength and run speed tests directly from each access point makes it very easy to get the best coverage from your network. (Image credit: Future) Performance and testing The VigorAP's MU-MIMO technology, when used with MU-MIMO capable wireless clients, allows each of the antennas (or Spatial Streams) to send data to separate wireless clients, which can potentially double the data transmission rate to clients. This is because instead of spending each transmission slot transmitting to a single client regardless of whether that client can support one or both of the VigorAP's streams, the VigorAP can spend that time slot sending data out to two clients, that each use a single spatial stream.Performance is impressive and consistent, and the mesh functionality is relatively fast to reconfigure in the event of a lost node. The DrayTek Wireless app and VigorConnect software need improvement, but overall there is plenty of support available.
