Draytek AP900 Wireless Access Point MPN:AP-900


150.95 (Ex VAT)

Manufacturer Code : AP-900

The DrayTek Vigor AP-900 is a wireless access point which can be operated in standalone or centrally managed/monitored mode (by use of a central DrayTek management product - feature due later in 2014 as a free firmware upgrade). The AP-900 is a high specification professional access point providing reliable and flexible coverage to all manner of applications. A vast array of security and management features helps the AP-900 to improve and protect flexibility and integrity of your wireless LAN. The Vigor AP-900 is ideal for adding wireless connectivity to an existing LAN, or for expanding the range of an existing wireless LAN by using the WDS repeater features. The Vigor AP-900 supports simultaneous operation of the common 2.4Ghz band and the new 5Ghz band. The 5Ghz band is far less congested so if your PCs or other devices support the 5Ghz band, you can use that. The Vigor AP-900 operates both bands at the same time, so your devices can use either band and each has its own bandwidth so overall wireless capacity is also increased. If you want to add 5Ghz band support to your PC/laptop (assuming it doesn't already support it), you can use the DrayTek N65 USB adaptor. The AP-900 has five wired Ethernet ports (separated into two distinct separated LANs). LAN A and LAN B can be fed separately and in turn broadcast on independent and isolated SSIDs. As the ports are all Gigabit, you can be sure that the AP-900 is fed at the maximum speed in order to fully satisfy the full speed of both 2/4 and 5Ghz bands simultaneously. The four ports on LAN A are particularly of use if you are using the AP-900 as a wireless bridge as you can then connect wired PCs or devices to it. LAN Port 1 on LAN-A is also used as the PoE input if you're powering the AP-900 by PoE. The AP-900 can operate in standalone autonomous mode, but can also form part of a centrally managed wireless installation by adding a compatible DrayTek wireless controller (a Vigor2860 or 2925). This enables you to centrally control, manage and administer multiple AP-900 devices installed around your building/campus. Management also enables efficient usage of your wireless access point through load-balancing, whereby wireless clients are distributed across several access points to reduce congestion.
