November 30, 2012 03:37 PMA competitive review of WLAN products at Syracuse University stirred up controversy because of a vendor’s involvement in the tests. But the real question is, are they testing the right things?
September 17, 2012 10:34 AMUsers want their iPhones and iPads on the network. That means dealing with Apple's Bonjour protocol. Aerohive's Bonjour Gateway is a scalable workaround--and now it's free.
June 26, 2012 09:00 AMAerohive's HiveOS is now integrated with JAMF's Casper Suite to ensure that Apple iDevices are properly configured. But what's behind the company's entrenched interest in Apple integrations?
March 08, 2012 03:56 PMBy now we know that iPhones and iPads (and a few of those Android things) have infiltrated the enterprise, but much of Apple's approach to networking and interdevice functionality is still a bit, well, consumer-oriented, which has IT scrambling to deal with protocols that often conflict with enterprise IT's goals.
January 18, 2011 07:00 AMAfter a busy week of talking with Meraki, Aerohive and startup PowerCloud Systems, my head is spinning a bit after hearing about the cloud-oriented trio's advancements into new niches. Wireless providers are venturing into wired networking, a major acquisition has taken place, and one vendor makes commodity-class hardware compete with enterprise-grade components using a new and interesting approach. The cloud is heating up, and the lines between wireless and wired networking are blurring. If these system providers have their way, branch office networks will never be outfitted and managed the same way, and big dollars will be saved by those shopping for new solutions.
December 15, 2010 07:20 PMWhen you do the marketing math, Aeorhive's case is easily made. Big WLAN vendors are having a field day making whopping throughput claims to hawk their latest 802.11n hardware, and the prevailing undercurrent through all IT media centers on the explosion of mobile and portable devices that are becoming mainstream computing devices. Take all those devices, using all of that bandwidth, and you have to wonder if sending it all to the network core is the best strategy. Aerohive says the wireless controller model should be yesterday's news in an 802.11n world, and that its smart, fat access points are the better way of doing wireless, by eliminating potential controller bottlenecks.
November 11, 2010 10:30 AMController-based wireless networks might be the norm today, but Motorola is challenging the conventional wisdom of big wireless control boxes. With wireless devices spreading like weeds and the rise of 802.11n, Motorola's interesting new WiNG 5 framework just may be a sign of things to come in the WLAN market.
September 03, 2009 07:43 PMWireless LAN vendor Aerohive has rolled service level monitoring of clients, as well as an automated response system into its HiveOS operating system. Included as part of the upcoming upgrade, a new option known as Performance Sentinel tracks the performance of each client on the Aerohive's access points and identifies clients falling below prescribed levels. When identified, the second option, Airtime Boost, takes over, adjusting other clients to keep everyone within specifications.
