The DrayTek VigorAP 920RPD is a recent addition to our extensive Draytek range. It is a ruggedised 11ac wave 2 dual band PoE outdoor access point and is a great wireless access point solution for outdoor environments.

Whatever the weather its industrial-grade components give this wireless access point a wide operating temperature range between -40°C and 70°C. With its rugged casing it can withstand rain, heat and cold delivering connectivity where you need it most. Plus the IP67 certified enclosure gives the VigorAP 920RPD added protection against water and dust with its clever Gore-tex design letting any moisture escape to the outside too.

The VigorAP 920RPD - A rugged outdoor wireless bridge

The VigorAP 920RPD can be used as a wireless bridge between two or more wired networks and can wirelessly extend networks to buildings without the need for wires. The VigorAP 920RPD also contains a PoE-Out port to deliver connectivity to other outdoor devices such as IP cameras.

This model supports dual-band operation with MU-MIMO for support of multiple clients at the same time within high density environments. It features two external antennas with an external 5GHz directional patch antenna for long range point to point connection. Multi User MIMO (Multiple In, Multiple Out) technology allows each of the two antennas to send data to separate wireless clients which in turn can double data transmission rates.

Key Features help outdoor wireless connections

The VigorAP 920RPD also utilises Airtime Fairness features which equalise transmission times, so legacy devices don’t slow everyone else’s data transmission times down. Assisted WiFi roaming save resources and improves the WiFi roaming experience by disassociating devices that move out of the effective transmission range and forcing them to pick up the nearest access point with the strongest signal. A great solution for WiFi roaming in open spaces such as shopping parades for example. With Band Steering you can also ensure that 5GHz capable devices enjoy the faster 5GHz speeds, leaving 2.4GHz Wi-Fi less-crowded for those devices that only support 2.4GHz, thus improving WiFi for all devices.

Easy management with Draytek VigorACS

As well as being able to be managed from Draytek routers, the Vigor AP 920R can also be easily managed remotely using the Draytek VigorACS central management system. This online interface provides full visibility and control over your Draytek Vigor AP access point, letting you configure and provision them as required. Set alerts if devices go offline or get a quick overview of the most important statistics. The VigorACS can be accessed from any type of device, from tablets through to smartphones.
