1 SIMPLI-FI NETWORKING. WiFi Wired Cloud Branch On-Demand

2 Aerohive addresses one of the key issues that companies like us have with controller-based access points. We have some larger sites, but also quite a few smaller ones. Deploying an expensive controller for just one or two access points in a small satellite office is cost-prohibitive. Martin Walker, Director of Global IT Architecture, Engineering, and Operations Flow International Corp. A Modern Access Network Accommodates the BYOD client explosion Optimizes applications for mobile users Features ubiquitous Wi-Fi coverage with 8-10 times bandwidth improvements via n Enables Wi-Fi as a viable replacement for Ethernet Allows wired and wireless access to work together, interchangeably Provides simple, secure guest access

3 Access granted. Today s enterprise is changing dramatically in the face of a series of inescapable global trends, including the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) mobility explosion, the emergence of mobile first access preference for every device, and the efficiencies of cloud services. These initiatives, combined with the decentralization of the corporate office to include remote offices, branch offices, and teleworkers performing critical functions are forcing enterprises to reevaluate IT strategies. Aerohive is a cloud networking company that provides comprehensive access solutions for the mobile first enterprise. Built from the ground up for today s challenges, Aerohive sets new standards for how to address these global trends that are impacting every organization with a unique and powerful combination of distributed networking intelligence, known as our Cooperative Control architecture, and an industry leading cloud services infrastructure. This allows Aerohive to deliver secure, enterprise-class access to every site from a large campus or headquarters to remote branches and even single teleworker offices with consistent, predictable service and maximum security. Enabling secure mobility regardless of the user s location or device and optimizing the user experience with mobile applications allows the enterprise to enjoy greater productivity, improved employee morale, and better customer service, while at the same time reducing cost and complexity. With Aerohive, work becomes what you do, not a place you go.

4 Aerohive has given us a highly resilient wireless network that s both easy to deploy and manage, with the capabilities to meet our needs far into the future. Considering all the features we sought, Aerohive was the most cost-effective solution. Choosing Aerohive was a unanimous decision. Dwayne Hottinger, Network Administrator, Harrisonburg City Public Schools Extended Enterprise - Branch on Demand instantly creates a fully secure branch network No remote expertise required Hands-free, automatic provisioning over the Internet Full enterprise security and centralized management Consistent, user-based security enforcement regardless of device

5 Controller-based Architecture Aerohive Controller-less Architecture Advantages of the Aerohive architecture include no U-turns, bottlenecks, or single points of failure, with increased reliability at reduced cost. Our Approach Legacy WLANs were designed in an era when wireless was an add-on network that needed to be isolated and managed. The central controller is a direct result of the fact that there was insufficient processing power at that time to distribute intelligence to the APs at the edge, which is the model used in other networking infrastructure like routers or firewalls. Controllers were invented to deal with the problem of Wi-Fi in the enterprise, using the technology that was available ten years ago. At Aerohive, on the other hand, we designed our systems using today s advanced processing power, to create an access network with intelligence at the edge, the ability to dynamically route around problems, and no single point of failure. Our design was based upon the fundamental premise that mobile device use would expand dramatically in the enterprise, that Wi-Fi would become the primary form of access, and that user identity is far more important than connection type. Aerohive s solution distributes all control functions, policy enforcement, and data forwarding to edge devices while maintaining a centralized management system for monitoring and configuration similar to how routing and firewall systems function. To further increase the power and flexibility of the access layer and simpli-fi the deployment and operation of access solutions in a distributed environment, Aerohive pioneered cloud-enabled networking. This new solution leverages a cloud services platform to remove the cost and complexity of deploying and managing network services in a distributed environment, while delivering enterprise-class performance and security.

6 A scalable cloud solution can include an on-premises HiveManager NMS or can be delivered via a SaaS model. Your Cloud or Ours? Cloud-enabled networking leverages cloud technology to achieve IT efficiencies not possible with classic network architectures. This process enables enterprises to increase capacity without having to make capital investments in additional servers, storage, and networking infrastructure. It provides flexibility and scale, helping enterprise IT boost the utility of their resources, increase their agility to meet business needs, expand their reach, and reliably support users around the world. The Aerohive Cloud Services Platform is a globally distributed cloud-based infrastructure that leverages Aerohive s patent-pending Cloud-Proxy technology and our HiveManager Online SaaS offering. The combination is seamlessly integrated with a set of partner Software- and Infrastructure-as-a-Service applications and with your corporate network architecture. With Aerohive, network survivability is built-in, and interruptions to cloud connectivity do not impact ongoing network operation. This is because data does not go to the cloud to enable control or policy enforcement functions, such as authentication, roaming, or QoS. These functions are all handled at the edge with our Cooperative Control architecture. Unique to the industry, Aerohive s HiveManager NMS is a SaaS solution that can also be deployed on-premises, in your own virtualized data center. This approach allows you to get many of the benefits of HiveManager Online in your own infrastructure. You can even use Aerohive s public infrastructure to simplify access point, switch, and router provisioning, while still hosting HiveManager on-premises. You can migrate between online and onpremises at any stage of your deployment.

7 Aerohive Architectural Advantages No U-turns, bottlenecks, or single points of failure Unified access layer including APs, switches, and routers to provide mobile-optimized networking to every user Flexible expansion just add APs as your requirements grow Superior branch performance and survivability Real mesh support creates a selfhealing network Increased reliability and reduced cost, because no controllers are required Advanced, value-added, cloud-based functionality Minimal feature licenses virtually everything you need is built into the system Aerohive treated us like a partner with a common interest. Combined with the cost, network management, and security benefits the cooperative control architecture delivers, the outstanding service and professionalism of the Aerohive team sealed the deal for us. Gayle Crouch, Director of IT 7-Eleven Stores

8 Aerohive s controller-less architecture enables us to add APs with little intervention or reconfiguration in two clicks, new APs can be up and running. This simplicity allows us to save time and money that can be injected into other projects, such as Voice over WLAN and assets tracking, which deliver immediate value to the hospital. Given the success of the deployment, we are already developing new wireless initiatives and plan to further expand the network. Wolfgang Wauters, ICT Manager Antwerp University Hospital A cloud-enabled approach Lowers the budgetary point of entry, by moving CAPEX to OPEX Enables automatic upgrades, backup, and simple provisioning Requires no rack space or power consumption, enabling a green solution Provides inherent high-reliability (resilient data centers) Enables easier and faster support, because you can manage the full deployment from anywhere Lets you start small and expand gradually as your needs grow Increases network flexibility to provide robust network services anywhere, on-demand

9 Access Points Aerohive s WLAN access points are an innovative new class of wireless infrastructure equipment powered by Cooperative Control technology to provide the benefits of a controller-based Wi-Fi solution, without requiring a controller or an overlay network. APs are organized into hives that share control information between them, and enable functions like fast secure L2/L3 roaming, coordinated RF management, security, QoS, and mesh networking. This sharing capability results in a next-generation wireless LAN architecture that is easy to deploy and expand, while retaining resiliancy all without a controller.
