VigorACS 2

AP Management

Overview of Wireless Networks

The VigorACS 2 Central Management System can manage and view the utilisation of VigorAP Wireless access points as well as DrayTek Vigor routers, to configure single VigorAP access points or all VigorAP's within a Network.

Any VigorAP connected to VigorACS, either connecting from behind a DrayTek Vigor router or from a site that does not have a DrayTek router installed, can be managed across the Internet using VigorACS.

Mapping AP Locations

VigorACS 2's Floor Plan can store images of floor plans and locations to record wireless access point locations. Simply drag and drop virtual APs or existing APs for the selected VigorACS network.

When the dimensions of the image are specificed, Floor Plan simulates wireless coverage of each wireless access point, to determine the best position for each VigorAP within that floor plan.
