DrayTek VigorAP 1000C Tri-Band 802.11ac Ceiling-Mount Mesh Wireless Access Point (VAP1000C-K)

The DrayTek VigorAP 1000C is a high-performance Mesh Wireless solution, designed to expand the wireless coverage, eliminate WiFi 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.

DrayTek VigorAP 1000C Key Features

  • Ceiling-mount high capacity Mesh Wireless Access Point
  • Secondary 5GHz radio – Dedicated Mesh backhaul, or higher client density
  • AC2200 - 11ac ‘Wave 2’ Tri Band Wireless
  • Multi-SSID over Mesh – Separate internal and Guest network sover Mesh
  • Power through 802.3at PoE+ or DC power adapter
  • 2nd Gigabit Ethernet port
  • Centrally Managed or Standalone operation

The VigorAP 1000C is a Tri-Band 802.11ac Wave 2 Mesh Wireless solution, designed to eliminate wireless drop outs, stuttering videos, slow download speeds, poor signal and WiFi 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. Dedicate a 5Ghz radio as a Mesh Backhaul for increased Mesh performance and client capacity.

Mesh Wireless

DrayTek’s Mesh system connects and intelligently manages a group of VigorAPs over wireless. The Self-Optimising Mesh ensures your wireless network nodes are always using the fastest path to the Mesh Root.

Tri-Band Access Point

The VigorAP 1000C provides one 2.4GHz and two 5GHz radios. Designate one 5GHz radio as a dedicated Mesh backhaul for improved Mesh network performance. Alternatively, use all 3 radios for wireless access to connect up to 384 clients per AP.

Gigabit Power Over Ethernet

The VigorAP 1000C can be powered through its Gigabit Ethernet interface with standard IEEE 802.3at PoE+ for a tidier and more convenient installation. Connect extra devices to the AP’s 2nd LAN port.

Easy to Configure and Manage

The DrayTek Wireless app simplifies setting up your network. Optionally configure and monitor through one of DrayTek’s management platforms - VigorACS cloud, VigorConnect, Router AP Management, or directly via the AP’s Web Interface.

Ceiling Mounting

The VigorAP 1000C blends well with most home or office interior. Its adaptable deployment options include ceilings and wall mounting. The VigorAP clips into its ceiling plate for secure mounting and easier maintenance.

Wireless Optimisation

Dedicated Backhaul for Mesh: Improves Mesh performance.
802.11ac Wave 2: Multi-User MIMO improves efficiency
Band Steering: Allows 5GHz devices to achieve optimum speeds.
AP Assisted Roaming: Helps clients connect to the best AP.
