VigorAP 960C Access Point - For Ceiling or Wall


VigorAP 960C - Managed 802.11ax Wireless Access Point

Wi-Fi 6 - Fast & Efficient

Improved efficiency, faster overall performance and less lag when compared with WiFi 5 (11ac) wireless networks. Uplifts both 2.4GHz and 5GHz client speeds. WiFi 6 is less susceptible to interference from neighbouring wireless networks.

Benefits: Significantly boosts real world performance for both 2.4 & 5GHz WiFi 6 clients.

Mesh Wireless

DrayTek's Mesh system intelligently manages and links VigorAPs wirelessly, with guest network and VLAN support. The Self-Optimising Mesh ensures your wireless network nodes are always using the fastest path to the Mesh Root.

Benefits: Quick to set up and easy to manage. Implement complex wireless networks with VLANs.

Gigabit Power Over Ethernet

The VigorAP 960C can be powered through its Gigabit Ethernet interface with standard IEEE 802.3af PoE for a tidier and more convenient installation. Alternatively, power the VigorAP with an AC adapter.

Benefits: High Speed connections even in locations without mains power.

WPA3 Security

Supports the latest and strongest wireless security standards, with WPA3-Personal and Enterprise 802.1x options. Mixed WPA3/WPA2 support helps networks transition to the new standard.

Benefits: Stronger wireless security. Better protection against brute force attacks.

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.

Benefits: Quick to install and change configuration.

Ceiling or Wall Mounted

With a new matte finish, the VigorAP 960C blends well with home and office interiors. Suitable for ceiling and wall mounting. Clips into its ceiling plate for secure mounting and easier maintenance.

Benefits: Flexible and discrete installation, with option to disable status LED.
