News Facts

  • Organizations today are leveraging mobile technologies to engage their customers, collaborate internally, and ultimately improve performance. To use these technologies, enterprises need a simple, scalable, and secure Wi-Fi infrastructure.

  • Aerohive has broadened the deployment options for HiveManager NG, an enterprise-class, cloud-enabled network management solution, to include both public cloud and on-premises deployment. HiveManager NG Virtual Appliance, the on-premises option, has been added to enable customers to choose the deployment that’s right for them. Now customers can deploy networks with on-premises management that has the ease of management and functionality of a cloud solution. In addition, customers will be able to change deployment methods as their needs change.
  • Aerohive also added new features to the HiveManager NG product portfolio to offer its customers even more network control and visibility. New features include:
    • Enhanced reporting, with the ability to share reports with an HTML link that can be accessed from any device
    • Enriched Helpdesk Troubleshooting, with role-based access control and guided troubleshooting tips
    • Updated security, with added rogue AP and client visibility

  • HiveManager NG in the cloud is available today and can be purchased with 1-, 3-, or 5-year subscription terms. 1-year plans start at $95 per access point, with pricing varying by access point model.
