Improvements to My Organization

It enabled mobility and district-wide consistent performance.

Use of Solution

We've used it for four years.

Deployment Issues

The PoE switches we purchased were/are very difficult to configure.

Stability Issues

We encountered no issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

We had no issues with scalability and, in fact, enlarging the environment was extremely simple.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

I haven't used it much, but it's great when I have.

Technical Support:

Top notch! The technicians manning the help desk are very knowledgeable and proficient. They offer great advice and help with best practices.

Previous Solutions

We had a completely different way of doing wireless, so this was a "start from scratch" project. I evaluated a number of vendors and visited several peer sites before choosing a solution, though.

Initial Setup

As straightforward as you could expect from a complex project. Aerohive was the easiest portion of it too.

Implementation Team

The vendor is a reseller of Aerohive and would get a C or C+ from me. We cut loose very early from needing their support though, and that is to the credit of Aeorhive who gets an A+.


This is a school district, so N/A.

Other Solutions Considered

We evaluated Aruba, Rocket, Cisco, HP and one or two others.

Other Advice

It has been a total success and well-received by our staff and students. If you need a wireless infrastructure, you cannot go wrong with Aerohive.
