11 Customer Profile – Education Problem/RequirementAccommodate an influx of Apple iPads, iPods and other Wi-Fi devicesEnable students to use the same device in the classroom and at homeA WLAN that was resilient, centrally administered, easy to manage, secure and cost-effectiveLocated in North Carolina, the sprawling Rowan- Salisbury School System is an educational force to be reckoned with. It’s comprised of 35 schools, about 20,000 students, and about 3,000 employees. It’s the largest employer in Rowan CountySolution“It was probably not the most known product when I first started looking at it. But the more I looked, I thought: this is just a really neat product. And then when we started doing the tests, everything that they said the product would do, it did. It’s just been a great experience for us.”Phil HardinExecutive Director for Technology Rowan-Salisbury School SystemAerohive’s controller-less cooperative control Access Points deployed pervasivelyHiveManager used to monitor entire wireless network and all client activityHighly resilient WLAN network that both easy to manage and cost effectiveDeprived economic areaStarted with 1 high schooleRate fundedPut money into worst performing high schoolResultsStudents and teachers making great strides in using Apple iPads and iPods for everything from data collection to video“Everything worked flawlessly. We knew then that product, in terms of providing us with the service and the bandwidth, was going to be there.”
12 Customer Profile – Distributed Enterprise Problem/RequirementSecure guest, contractor and staff wireless connectivity throughout their global facilitiesMeet security standards for government projectsAbility to deploy in remote locations – securely without on-site IT supportA WLAN that offered resiliency, reliability, and performance and at the right priceURS Corporation is a fully integrated engineering, construction and technical services organization with the capabilities to support every stage of the project life cycle.With offices in nearly 50 countries, they provide services to a broad range of clients, including the U.S. federal government agencies, national governments of other countries, state and local government agencies in the United States and internationally, and private sector clients worldwide.Their work is focused in five key market sectors: Federal, Oil & Gas, Infrastructure, Power, and Industrial. Within each of these markets, their comprehensive skills and expertise are a valued resource to clients around the world.SolutionAerohive’s controller-less cooperative control Access PointsID Manager for visitor and contractor access controlHiveManager NMS provides centralized configuration and monitoring and simplifies provisioning for system-wide policy managementResultsURS is taking a phased approach and will roll out the remaining 180 offices before the end of the year. The will add BR200’s for their remote construction trailers
13 Customer Profile – Healthcare Problem/RequirementMake electronic medical records applications portable and provide wireless access to Brookdale’s guests and familiesMeet compliance standards for secure healthcare environmentsA WLAN that offered resiliency, reliability, and performance and at the right priceLargest Assisted Living and Retirement Community Company in the US delivers higher levels of care with Wi-Fi and EMR, and Provides Wireless Internet Access to ResidentsSolution“We found that when we wanted to get into true enterprise wireless, we wanted to reduce costs by not having controllers in place,” Fadrowski said. “In a controller-based solution … to deliver the functionality we required we had to have a controller here in Milwaukee (where the data center resides) and a controller in every community, thus raising costs quite a bit, adding to single points of failure, and having to build in more redundancy and more cost with controller-type systems.”.Chris FadrowskiSenior Director of IT InfrastructureAerohive’s controller-less cooperative control Access PointsHiveManager NMS provides centralized configuration and monitoring and simplifies provisioning for system-wide policy managementResultsBrookdale has deployed 6,000+ Aerohive APs over the last 24 months at 622 locations and will continue to deploy WLAN’s at a further locations over the next 12 monthsBrookdale is able to meet its audit requirements and provide reliable internet services that enhance the resident’s quality of life
14 Customer Profile – Retail & Services Problem/RequirementProvide accelerated drive-thru & restaurant service during peak hoursCompliant with PCI & other security requirementsEasy to manage without technical staff present at restaurant locations for trouble- shootingA solution that could grow with restaurant’s needs“Due to the successful pilot rollout, we decided to replace all Cisco Wi-Fi equipment at our Stores. Today we have 300 Restaurants and 200 Mall stores utilizing the Aerohive solution for handheld POS. We will roll out another 350 this year.Our greatest challenge was introducing the Aerohive name to our management team and explaining why this smaller company should win the business.Given the lower TCO compared with our initial solution, we were able to get approval to move forward.”Brad Martin, Sr. Supervisor of Network and Security EngineeringSolutionAbility to ultimately scale to restaurants, malls & “test” locationsPrivate Wi-Fi SSID for internal staff using the captive portal authentication featureRogue AP DetectionPrivate Pre-shared Key FeatureResultsHive Manager = No more provisioning issuesSimplified configuration processNo more dependence on connectivity to the data centerWe could upgrade code or make configuration changes flexibly
