Instead of using an Ethernet uplink, an AP in Mesh mode will connect to an existing AP and use it as its uplink. You can wirelessly add three more hops from the mesh root (the AP with a wired uplink) and expand your Wi-Fi access without cables deployments.
No cable deployment, no repeat configuration, you can kill the Wi-Fi dead zone in minutes.
The rich interconnection between nodes provides the ability of self-healing: when one is down, others can take over.
The Mesh group shares the same WLAN configuration and automatically build a roaming environment.
Grouping the APs allows the network admin to monitor all the clients and devices from a single plane.
DrayTek's Mesh solution supports 8x VigorAP in a mesh group at maximum, including 1x Mesh Root and up to 7x Mesh Nodes. The Mesh Nodes can be three hops away from the Mesh Root.
