Central Management with DrayTek VigorACS

The DrayTek products can be managed by the VigorACS central management system; a Cloud or Self-Hosted platform which can manage most DrayTek products - routers, wireless access points and Ethernet switches, giving you complete visibility and control of your DrayTek product estate, even without a DrayTek Vigor router on site.

VigorACS is now available in two versions; VigorACS 2 and VigorACS 3:

VigorACS 2

Available as Cloud and Self-Hosted services. This gives you full control and oversight of all your DrayTek products, with automation of firmware updates, notification of disconnected VPNs & WANs. With options for reporting and advanced provisioning facilities, to batch configure many Routers, Switches and Wireless APs at once, across many sites.

 VigorACS 3

Available as a Self-Hosted server. This gives you all the features of VigorACS 2, with an updated interface as well as two significant new features:

  • SD-WAN

    Enables advanced and intelligent routing of services across multiple WANs and sites, ensuring optimal quality for all services with minimal work to configure.
  • HotSpot Portal

    Centralised HotSpot web portal enables more advanced hospitality Wi-Fi portal services, with multi-language support and advanced analytics.

The DrayTek VigorACS management system can be used to configure and provision devices, similarly to performing these actions through the devices web interface, with a familiar menu layout in the Configuration section of VigorACS.

VigorACS management monitors all devices, with a Dashboard view giving a central overview of the most important information from the devices status.

Central Management with DrayTek VigorConnect

DrayTek Access Points can be managed on-site by the VigorConnect local management service which is a stand alone software package you can install on a local Windows machine.

VigorConnect enables you to centrally control, manage and administer multiple AP devices installed around your building/campus. It simplifies the initial setup through device discovery to add all your VigorAPs into the system and then allow you to provision them quickly by deploying your wireless profile to the devices.

VigorConnect makes it easier to complete maintenance tasks such as firmware upgrades and configuration backups and scheduled gives control over when they occur. Monitoring, logs, alarms, and floor plan all help to make it easier to manage your network.

Central Management with a DrayTek Router

Most of the DrayTek routers come with the build-in wireless controller that can centrally manage Vigor Access Points. Set your APs with pre-defined profiles to match the wireless SSIDs, passwords, and manage your wireless traffic with features such as load-balancing.

Manage the whole VigorSwitch range with Router-based Central Switch Management, or from the cloud with the VigorACS Central Management platform (selected models). Monitor network usage, provision VLAN configurations, set individual port rates and schedule port operation all from a single point of management.
