Nowadays, Wi-Fi is becoming a necessity of life much like the sun, air and water. To meet the growing demand for Wi-Fi and to ensure adequate coverage, it is common to deploy multiple access points in locations such as offices, warehouses, hotels, restaurants, cafés, hospitals and campuses. Just like an orchestra needs a conductor to coordinate the performance of musicians, a wireless network can be most efficiently when all access points are centrally managed using DrayTek APM.
DrayTek offers two APM solutions:
1. VigorACS, which is a software package that is installed and run on a computer, can be used to manage not only VigorAP, but also most of DrayTek devices. VigorACS bases on TR-069 protocol, makes this solution be suitable for the customer who has a great number of APs and they may come from different locations.
2. Router built-in APM, this is a central management feature which is built into the firmware of select DrayTek routers, including the Vigor2862 series, Vigor2860 series, Vigor2925 series, Vigor2952 series, Vigor3220 series, Vigor3900, and Vigor2960, etc. Network administrator can easily manage the Vigor APs which directly connect to the LAN of Vigor Router, also from remote VPN network, on the single WUI page on Vigor Router. The maximum number of manageable APs depends on the specific router model.
Both VigorACS and Router built-in APM can perform the following functions,1. AP Connection Status2. Event Log Report3. Auto/Manual Configuration Provision4. AP Load Balancing5. AP Floor Plan (AP Map)6. Configuration Backup/Restore7. Firmware Upgrade
The comparison table of the differences of VigorACS and Router built-in APM:
