Aerohive Networks Selected by UK Cabinet Office to Underpin Technology Transformation Programme
London, England and Sunnyvale, Calif. — July 15, 2015 — Aerohive Networks ® (NYSE: HIVE) today announced it has been selected by the UK Cabinet Office to help overhaul the Office’s legacy IT infrastructure to enable modern, flexible ways of working for its employees.
The Cabinet Office has deployed Aerohive’s wireless solution in all of its buildings, reducing the need for infrastructure cable, freeing civil servants from desks and enabling more productive and collaborative ways of working. Requiring high quality network connectivity across a number of devices per user, the Cabinet Office chose Aerohive for its scalable and flexible approach to Wi-Fi.
- The Cabinet Office has selected Aerohive as part of the Cabinet Office’s Technology Transformation Programme, established to replace an ‘end-of-life’ outsourced IT service.
- With a goal to deliver better connectivity and provide a greater choice of collaborative tools and the freedom to be more mobile with devices, the Cabinet Office chose Aerohive as the network solution to underpin this change. High quality network connectivity throughout the building, especially for desks and meeting areas, was amongst the top priorities for change; a priority that the Cabinet Office IT team summarised as ”Wi-Fi Everywhere.”
- The Cabinet Office sought a solution that would be resilient, without a single point of failure but with overlapping Wi-Fi coverage. Aerohive’s controller-less architecture as well as its support for private cloud and on-premise management systems made it a compatible choice for the Cabinet Office.
“Wi-Fi has become an essential technology and any network the Cabinet Office installed must support both the speed and capacity required for its staff, its guests and other tenants in shared buildings, as well as visitors from other departments,” said Phil Keeley, principle sales engineer, Aerohive Networks. “The evolving technology needs of the Cabinet Office are reflective of all organisations looking to transform legacy systems. Selecting Aerohive to provide access points for a flexible, scalable and secure wireless network is an important step towards creating an environment fit for the modern day worker.”
