HiveManager is incredibly useful for managing APs and switches from one cloud interface.

a true controller-less approach, where each Access Point is 100% independent from the management system.
Integrated Firewall in every AP (with DPI inspection) is a killer feature and it is included already in the price of licence (with others, this feature is an add-on licence).
The feature that I like to most is unified management in a multitenant environment, where we can manage all our customers with thousands of devices (routers, switches, VPNs, and APs).

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.

HiveManager is extremely easy to use for anyone with little network experience.
The cloud-based controller through HiveManager is its most valuable feature. I can manage and configure changes to my access points from anywhere.

Whenever I have a concern, question, or just need a refresher the helpful staff at AeroHive is there to help me. By far, the ]best relationship I have ever had with a vendor.

The cloud-based management interface allows us to fully manage all our wireless radios, ensuring consistency and ease of access.
The cloud management gives us the tools and reports that we need to monitor and troubleshoot the network.

Need port aggregation on the 2384 switches to take full advantage of ac on the APs. I understand that is on their product road map.

From our perspective, we would love to see Aerohive provide faster feature enhancement in their Virtual Appliance to match the features with the cloud solution more quickly.
The Virtual Appliance crashed once while doing an upgrade. The good thing here is, even if the management system fails, all our networks and features still remain 100% stable and working.

Their firewall configuration gets funky and it can be difficult to understand.

We have had some mediocre to poor experiences with tech support: Conflicting information, condescending attitudes, and reluctance to work to resolve an issue.
