Overview

The VigorAP 912C is an 802.11ac ceiling mounted wireless Access Point with a PoE PD port. The PoE PD feature
reduces installation costs by allowing the unit to be powered over the UTP cabling, eliminating the need to install a power outlet near the Access Point.

The VigorAP 912C supports the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard and provides advanced features such as AirTime
Fairness, Band Steering, and AP-Assisted Roaming.

The Plug-n-Play Mesh technology in the VigorAP 912C allows up to 8 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 Wireless app available from DrayTek.

The Wi-Fi Mesh technology improves redundancy and reliability to any network. The “self-healing”
feature of Mesh ensures an alternative path will be built in the event of an uplink connection failure, ensuring
continuity of Wi-Fi services.

Key Features

802.11ac Wave 2 Technology

VigorAP 912C supports MU-MIMO for high density applications

Extend your Wi-Fi network with Wi-Fi Mesh technology

VigorAP 802s are used as dual-band 802.11ac wireless extenders

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.
