Aerohive is an enterprise networking provider offering high quality, premium solutions for end to end management of Wi-Fi connectivity. They help enterprises to simplify network management, unlock insights and reduce costs.
Enterprises need Wi-Fi – for their employees, for their customers, for their patients, guests or students. For work, healthcare, shopping, logistics or leisure – mobile devices and connectivity are an integral part of daily life. Enterprises need to provide Wi-Fi access points and they need to manage that Wi-Fi – to ensure the right service levels, with the appropriate security at a manageable cost.
Recognising that for enterprises implementing end-to-end Wi-Fi access points, ease of management and control of costs and access are paramount, Aerohive were first to market with a cloud based Wi-Fi management solution and are still one of the only vendors to offer it. With many apps and hosting environments now also delivered through the cloud, enterprises understand the value in also managing their Wi-Fi this way, and love the lower TCO that it delivers. Enterprise Wi-Fi and HiveManager from Aerohive gives them just that; it provides a solid Wi-Fi backbone, the ability to manage their network freely and quickly throughout the facility plus advanced security and VPN access from outside the campus.
The recent acquisition of Aerohive by Extreme Networks means that the Aerohive Partner Program will be discontinued at the end of December and that we encourage all partners to begin transitioning to the new unified Extreme Partner Program.
To help you and your customers transition to a new program with even high profitability and designed to help optimise and streamline business transformation into the cloud, Extreme has detailed the steps required to transition. Additionally, Extreme has invested in specialisations, tools and programs to drive value and enable your customers to better position Extreme's networking products and solutions.
