What is most valuable?

The cloud-based controller through HiveManager is its most valuable feature. I can manage and configure changes to my access points from anywhere.

How has it helped my organization?

This is an implementation stage for Aerohive Wireless. We are still in a PoC with Dell Sri Lanka. HiveManager is extremely easy to use for anyone with little network experience.

What needs improvement?

Browser load time for the cloud is long and needs improvement.

What other advice do I have?

The cloud interface is decent. It has a smooth dashboard. Aerohive has been the perfect fit for a University like us. I am the Senior Network Administrator of the University. I am… more»

What is most valuable?

The support. The support team at Aerohive is out of this world! 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.

What needs improvement?

A mobile app would be awesome.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Cisco. We swapped to Aerohive because of many reasons. * One reason is the installation. The install of the AP250s is much easier on the drop ceiling compared to their Meraki MR42 counterpart. * Another reason is the price to performance. We… more»

What is most valuable?

The lack of a controller on-site gives us one less point of failure for this critical system. The cloud management gives us the tools and reports that we need to monitor and troubleshoot the network.

How has it helped my organization?

Wireless is no longer a ‘nice to have’ feature. It has become an essential component to a comprehensive network plan. Wireless is the default for BYOD users and mobile staff. The choice of a wireless vendor was incredibly important given the… more»

What needs improvement?

What do you think of Aerohive Networks?

What is our primary use case?

We are resellers for this solution. The primary use case is for wifi for enterprises and for hotspots for telecom operators.

What is most valuable?

Being a controller-less solution is more cost effective and gives more flexibility.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. The deployment time depends on the size of the project but it has a normal wifi installation, site surveys, and connectivity between the management, the HiveManager, and the access points.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and
