13 How does it work? HiveManager NMS Reporting Heat Maps SLA Compliance Policy Configuration Wireless Network Wired Network With Cooperative Control, clients can securely and seamlessly roam across the WLAN With a second HiveAP, fast stateful roaming, cooperative RF, station load balancing and seamless resiliency are enabled Cooperative RF power levels minimize co-channel interference As more HiveAPs are added, coverage, reliability and backhaul bandwidth increases Mesh networking and best path forwarding can be used for extra resiliency and reachability Dynamically reroutes around failures HiveAPs are discovered, policy is pushed and the WLAN is operational HiveManager is a single mgmt interface for configuration, OS updates & monitoring of thousands of devices A single HiveAP by itself acts as a full-featured enterprise class access point Identity-based security, including stateful inspection FW, rogue detection & mitigation Airtime Scheduling, SLA compliance and local forwarding implemented at the edge Dynamic best path forwarding and stateful roaming provides resiliency without a single point of failure With Cooperative Control, clients can securely and seamlessly roam across the WLAN And now I’d like to take you through a brief example of how you can deploy this technology into your enterprise network. On the right of your screen you see a simplified enterprise switch topology, with four access layer switches and two aggregation switches. We can start by bringing in a single HiveAP into the network infrastructure and connecting it to one of the switches. The single HiveAP by itself acts as a full-featured enterprise-class access point -- robust functionality with the identity-based security and quality of service, and local forwarding at the edge of the network. When you bring in a second HiveAP, they are joined together in a hive, and then you start to see the power of the cooperative control architecture. They work together to implement fast, stateful roaming, cooperative RF control, station load balancing, and provide seamless resiliency. For example, on your screen you can see the circles around the two access points are of different colors. Those represent the channels, the access points are working on. There are channel negotiation protocols that work together to make sure they’re running on separate channels. The access point that the laptop is connected to has taken the user state and the keys and has shared that with the next top neighbor, so that next top neighbor is able to implement predictive roaming. So when the laptop moves, he will roam seamlessly to the next top neighbor, with roam times well under 50 milliseconds, because his state and security has been pre-populated at that access point. We can also implement mesh networking and best path forwarding for extra resiliency and reachability. The mesh networking protocols will dynamically re-route around network infrastructure failures. For example, on your screen you can see the two access points are connected together with a mesh link. The red X shows that the switch has failed, but the mesh routing protocols will route the traffic around the switch failure and will allow applications to continue uninterrupted even in the event of a LAN infrastructure failure. The network can be seamlessly scaled by simply adding more HiveAPs as needed, as you need more coverage, you want more reliability or more back-haul bandwidth into the network infrastructure. You don’t have to worry about capacity planning up front because there were no fixed constraints around your controller capacity. In this topology, four of the HiveAPs are wired directly into the Ethernet network, what we call portals, and one of the HiveAPs on the bottom left is wired as a mesh node, where the cell phone is connected to. With a more complex topology like this, we now have many more access points, and many of them are running on the same channel. To eliminate co-channel interference, the cooperative control auto power level adjustment features kick in and power levels are adjusted to provide maximum coverage with minimal co-channel interference, allowing the system to give you the most robust wireless infrastructure possible. With a more complete deployment like this, with more nodes and more alternative routes through it, you have even higher levels of resiliency. You can recover from multiple failures in your wired or wireless infrastructure. As we’re showing here, we have had two switch failures and a wireless LAN access point failure, and the traffic is still routed around through multi-hop mesh into the network infrastructure, providing unprecedented levels of resiliency. And not only does the cooperative control architecture provide these functionality advantages and technological advantages, but it provides substantial economic advantages when deploying a wireless LAN.

18 Wired and wireless Infrastructure 2012 MQ Aerohive is a Visionary!
A Magic Quadrant Visionary for wired and wireless Infrastructure The strongest “completeness of vision” in the quadrant (the farthest to the right) An innovation leader with products such as its Bonjour Gateway and its cooperative control architecture, which eliminates the need for a dedicated controller and provides a cost competitive solution without sacrificing functionality. Aerohive should be considered for any overlay WLAN enterprise opportunities in North America, Western Europe or Australia/New Zealand, especially in the education, healthcare and retail markets. Its controller-less, mesh-based architecture provides an easy-to-use and robust solution with lower operational costs, which makes it a standard bearer for market pricing of equivalent functionality.
