MILPITAS, CALIF.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Aerohive Networks® (NYSE: HIVE), the leading Enterprise Cloud Networking vendor, today announced that it is experiencing rapid adoption of its innovative and market-leading dual 5 GHz-based 802.11ac Wave 2 access points, accounting for 45 percent of its access point sales in Q2 of 2017. Dual 5 GHz delivers greater network efficiency and performance, as well as higher returns on investment (ROI).
Aerohive is hosting a webinar on the advances and benefits of software-defined radios on Thursday, August 17th. To learn how dual 5 GHz can improve operational efficiency and performance, provide up to 7x the bandwidth, increase network flexibility and adaptability, and create less RF and Wi-Fi interference, register here.
“The entire networking world is moving toward the software-defined model, which is what makes the dual 5 GHz solution so compelling,” said Changming Liu, chief technology officer and founder, Aerohive Networks. “We uniquely overcame many technical challenges to isolate radios to support simultaneous dual 5 GHz operation in a compact AP form factor, and give control back to the end user instead of the vendor, with software-defined radios that let them deploy the radio in the best mode they see fit for their environment. This not only gives the end user the best Wi-Fi experience, but also dramatic cost savings by deploying one AP instead of two with less interference, equipment, cabling, and power consumption.”
“Today’s Wi-Fi investment decisions will stay with network managers for several years, making it critical to select equipment that can adapt to changing needs,” said Matthias Machowinski, senior research director for IHS Markit, a global information provider. “Software-defined radios allow network managers to continue support for 2.4GHz clients, and as this legacy client base dwindles away, they can be re-used to add more capacity in the 5GHz spectrum.”
“Having Aerohive’s dual 5 GHz technology in place has been the ultimate game changer for our retail business,” said Eric Jensen, infrastructure manager, City Furniture. “Associates can now foster more personal interaction and carry mobile devices for customer service while walking around our showrooms. Customers now receive instant product recommendations and suggestions based on preferences, increasing the closing percentages for sales across our City Furniture stores. Overall, the Aerohive solution has transformed and elevated the way we serve customers and contributed to our bottom line.”
“Aerohive blew all the competition out of the water,” said Scott Farrand, senior network analyst, Edmonds Community College. “It’s a win-win in a high-density environment to enable auto configuration for channel selection to provide the best throughput, ease congestion, and maximize ROI. By directing particular users to the 5 GHz band, we’re getting more utilization out of the 5 GHz band and relieving the 2.4 GHz band for legacy clients. Switching to Aerohive made me rethink our entire wireless strategy and as a result has made our network much simpler.”
“The dual 5 GHz technology from Aerohive is key and has made all the difference for both our users and our IT team,” said Louis Guadagno, network manager, London Metropolitan University. “We can now easily steer London Met users with 5 GHz capability to a separate band, which eases congestion and makes for a superior user experience while maximizing our investment.”
