ExtremeCloud IQ Review

I love the hive manager for finding a device that a student has misplaced.

What is most valuable?

I am taking over the Director of Technology position in a few days and I am thrilled to say that I have no worries at all about our wireless network. The few times we have needed help, Aerohive has been there for us and I am confident that If I need them they will be there again.

How has it helped my organization?

Aerohive was able to replace a few APs quickly and without any issues. I was able to get them into our network easily and with almost no downtime. I also love the hive manager for finding a device that a student has misplaced. I can easily see which APs it has hit and start to identify its location.

What needs improvement?

Bring the cost down.

For how long have I used the solution?

3 years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

After an OS update on the APs, we lost connectivity and had to roll back to a previous OS.
