ACCESS POINTS

UNIFIED WIRED AND WIRELESS NETWORKS POWERED BY CLOUD MANAGEMENT AND SERVICES

Our cloud networking technologies with unified wired and Wi-Fi access provide self-organizing and self-healing connectivity, reduced operational cost and complexity, and greater data insights. Supported by the industry’s most flexible and adaptable architecture and licensing model, our cloud-managed access networks can be fully tailored to match your requirements both today and tomorrow.

UNIQUE WLAN ARCHITECTURE

Innovative Cooperative Control protocol suite enables secure, scalable, high-performance, and mission-critical wireless networking in a manageable and cost-effective way.

  • Powerful intelligence embedded in each & every Aerohive access point creates a cohesive, self-reliant system and eliminates the need for centralized controllers altogether
  • Best-path forwarding allows traffic to be securely forwarded between devices via the most suitable path in the network
  • Secure, granular policy enforcement at the edge before the wireless LAN traffic ever traverses the wired LAN

Here are the three main benefits of Aerohive’s architecture:

  • Cost Savings as controller hardware, software, and licenses are all eliminated
  • Operational Simplicity due to the inherent resiliency, security and self-healing characteristics of the system
  • Scalability and Flexibility owing to the elimination of controllers and the grow-as-you-go architectural feature
