Self Hosted ACS Installation

ACS-SI is our Centralised Management platform for managing DrayTek routers, firewalls, and Access Points. It provides system administrators with real-time monitoring, instant or scheduled configuration roll outs, and reporting capabilities. ACS supports TR-069 protocol which is supported on all current DrayTek models.

A 30-day fully functional free trial version of ACS-SI software is available to qualifying partners or enterprises. ACS-SI is available for Windows (desktop or server OS) or Linux platforms. A fixed public IP address and reliable always-on Internet connection is recommended. You can install your ACS-SI server on your own server, in a data centre, or choose our hosted service.
