DrayTek Vigor VAP903 Managed 802 11ac Dual Band WiFi PoE Access Point

Product Ref: VAP903-K

The DrayTek VigorAP 903 Dual-Band WiFi 5 PoE Access Point is a dual-band, 802.11ac Wave 2, high-performance, mesh wireless solution. It is designed to expand wireless coverage, eliminate WiFi dead zones, drop outs, stuttering videos, slow download speeds and poor signal, as well as significantly reduce the cost of network deployments. It can also be used as a traditional access point, either managed or standalone, so it has the flexibility to be used how you need it. One (1) access point acts as the controller (mesh root) and in total up to eight (8) access points create an easy to manage wireless mesh. The VigorAP 903 extends your coverage without having to run expensive cabling.
