Founded in 2006, Aerohive Networks were among the first to develop a controller-less WLAN architecture. Aerohive Networks reduces the cost and complexity of today’s networks with cloud-enabled, distributed Wi-Fi and routing solutions for enterprises and medium sized companies, including those with branch offices and tele-workers.
Aerohive’s award-winning cooperative control Wi-Fi architecture, public or private cloud-enabled network management, routing and VPN solutions eliminate costly controllers and single points of failure. This gives its customers mission critical reliability with granular security and policy enforcement and the ability to start small and expand without limitations.
HiveAP Access Points
Aerohive’s 802.11n enterprise wireless LAN access points, HiveAPs, are an innovative class of wireless infrastructure equipment with cooperative control technology that provides the benefits of a controller-based wireless LAN solution, without requiring a controller or an overlay network.
HiveAPs are organized into groups, or “Hives,” that share control information between them, and enable functions like secure and fast L2/L3 roaming, coordinated RF management, security, QoS, and mesh networking. This sharing capability enables a next-generation wireless LAN architecture that is easy to deploy and expand, as well as reliable, scalable, high-performing, and optimal for voice over WLAN – all without a controller.
Aerohive’s innovative new routers combine 802.11n performance, enterprise grade security and wired/wireless connectivity via the cloud.
Aerohive routers can be provisioned for maximum convenience and cost-effectiveness—organizations may choose to purchase routers outright or via the innovative Branch on Demand Network-as-a-Service subscription offering. Routers require no end-user intervention, but rather “phone home” for configuration details pushed from a central location. The result is a unique, zero-touch branch office network deployed by plugging in the power cord. Aerohive finally makes it possible to centrally activate thousands of remote users.
HiveOS – HiveManager
Aerohive’s HiveOS is the operating system that powers the Aerohive 802.11n enterprise access points and routers, while HiveManager is the wireless network management system for configuration and monitoring of these devices.
Together with Aerohive access points and routers, these systems comprise a complete controller-less, enterprise Wi-Fi or remote office solution. HiveOS Wi-Fi features provide a host of leading wireless network features, including SLA compliance, airtime management and built-in spectrum analysis, all without a controller.
