VigorAP 918R is a wireless access point designed for outdoor environments. It is ideal for providing wireless access to users and devices in any outdoor scenario, including restaurants, gardens, marinas, educational premises or, really, anywhere where outdoor access is needed.
The VigorAP 918R is a dual-band 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless access point and range extender that can be used a part of a DrayTek Mesh Wireless solution, designed to eliminate wireless drop outs, stuttering videos, slow download speeds, poor signal and Wi-Fi dead zones. One access point acts as the controller (Mesh root) and in total up to 8 access points create an easy to manage wireless mesh. Extend coverage without running expensive cabling.
Initial setup of the VigorAP 918R is easy with the DrayTek Wireless app, whether it’s creating a new Mesh network or being set up in AP and Range Extender modes, the Quick Start Wizard assists throughout.
Manage the VigorAP 918R centrally through the VigorACS central management platform, VigorConnect, Router AP Management, or simply on its own as a stand-alone access point.
The VigorAP 918R has the flexibility to be used how you need it, in any environment.
Power-over-Ethernet Gigabit Ethernet Ports
The VigorAP 918R series is powered through standard IEEE 802.3af/at Power over Ethernet (PoE). This allows the VigorAP to be placed in locations where it’s not easily possible to source power. It can also make use of PoE switch features such as scheduling and Device Check to ensure the access point is always operating reliably.
The Gigabit LAN port on the VigorAP 918R ensures that the AP is fed at the maximum speed, in order to fully satisfy the full speed of both 2.4GHz and 5Ghz bands simultaneously.
The VigorAP 918RPD model adds a secondary LAN port, which provides PoE Output (PoE-PSE) to power an additional PoE device through a single cable run. This makes it possible to connect a camera or daisy-chain an additional AP through the one cable.
