Aerohive® Drives Enterprise Networking Innovation at Cloud-Speed

Sponsored by Businesswire

® (NYSE: HIVE), a leader in cloud-managed networking, today
unveiled two new innovations that further strengthen Aerohive’s cloud
managed networking vision. Through extensive interviews with customers,
partners and industry analysts, Aerohive has identified that the
enterprise demands not just a fast network, but a F.A.S.T. future:

  • Flexibility in deployment, hardware, licensing, expansion, and
    upgrade options;
  • Actionable Insights driven by ML/AI to better understand and
    automatically characterize and optimize infrastructure and clients;
  • Security across the network, to protect against the rising tide
    of cyberattacks;
  • Technology Innovations that provide new features,
    functionality, comparative insights, and hardware developed and
    delivered at Cloud-speed to meet ever increasing demands placed on the
    infrastructure by an ever-increasing amount and diversity of clients
    connecting to the infrastructure.

Aerohive has always pioneered new technologies that enable IT to rethink
what’s possible. Aerohive’s high velocity innovation engine and its
F.A.S.T. direction are intrinsically linked to the highly flexible, ISO
27001 certified, modern microservices based Cloud Architecture with
native Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to deliver
continuous learning, continuous operation, and continuous optimization.

Today Aerohive launches two new technologies that use AI and Machine
Learning to provide behavioral insights that empower Wi-Fi management
and implementation decisions at scale:

  • Traffic
    uses presence and proximity based on Wi-Fi
    connectivity and Bluetooth LE (BLE) to provide deep insights into
    client behavior.
  • Maximum
    Client Capabilities
    automatically detects and verifies
    Wi-Fi features and capabilities on all connected clients across all
    Wi-Fi bands, thereby empowering informed Wi-Fi management at scale.

“The enterprise is facing a myriad of new challenges both in how they
can deploy and manage their networks, and in the demands for client
devices and applications,” said David Flynn, CEO, Aerohive. “Our vision
for the future of enterprise networking, and these new technologies
we’re launching, tackle those challenges head-on. Aerohive is giving the
enterprise the flexibility, insights, security and advanced technology
they need for their networks to successfully support their growing
businesses today, and tomorrow.”

Traffic Insights gives administrators graphical visibility and
analysis of sets of associated and passive Wi-Fi and BLE clients for
their connections and movement patterns across customer-defined zones.
Customers can also track an individual client or asset for their current
location and their movement over a period of time. Businesses can use
Traffic Insights to analyze their asset usage patterns to optimize their
business for layout, placement of their services and merchandise, and
demand planning.

Maximum Client Capabilities enhances Aerohive’s already existing,
industry-leading AI and ML-driven management capabilities, such as Network
and Client
. The technology alleviates the high OPEX and time tied to
network specialists’ dependency on manual, complex, and expensive
equipment in order to capture, parse, and understand specific client
device capabilities, one capture at a time. These new insights give
administrators a clear view of how to unlock the full potential of their
networks and clients with minimal effort.

“Traffic Insights and Maximum Client Capabilities are pivotal updates to
our networking infrastructure,” said Chris Gapske, principal network
administrator, Apricity Resources. “Not only will they put our company
in a position for better business, they’ll make sure we are primed for
success as enterprise networking of the future becomes more of a present

“Aerohive helps our business stay ahead of the curve when it comes to
network technologies, such as being the first to open up options with
the next generation of Wi-Fi,” said Elton Lima, information technology
manager, JCDecaux. “Aerohive enables us to stay future-proofed with new
network management functionality, insights, and security features within
the HiveManager cloud platform. It’s strength of vision has helped
JCDecaux realize ever increasing value from our enterprise network.”

“As businesses have become more connected, the Wi-Fi network has grown
in importance,” said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst, ZK Research.
“Today, high quality Wi-Fi is mandatory for success with digital
transformation initiatives. The challenge for most companies is that
Wi-Fi has historically been difficult to troubleshoot. The 2018 ZK
Research Wi-Fi Troubleshooting survey found that 58 percent of network
professionals spend more than 25 percent of their time problem-solving
Wi-Fi issues as people can no longer analyze data fast enough to stay on
top of issues in highly dynamic environments. The use of machine
learning and artificial intelligence to manage Wi-Fi is the only
scalable way to deliver high quality Wi-Fi today. By delivering this as
a cloud service, Aerohive is making this capability available to
companies of all sizes.”
