"Aerohive has a base of over 7,500 loyal customers worldwide and this number continues to grow every day,” said David Flynn, chief executive officer, Aerohive Networks. “As we head into the new year, we wanted to provide a forum for our customers to share best practices and learn more about our products. Directly engaging with these like-minded IT professionals provides invaluable context and insight. With HiveNation, we now have access to information that will enable us to continue to improve our products, services and ultimately optimize customer satisfaction.”    

“I was honored to be among one of the beta testers over the last couple of months for Aerohive’s new online community, HiveNation,” said Bradley Chambers, Director of I.T., Brainerd Baptist School. “HiveNation is a place where Aerohive customers and employees can work together to solve issues that others might be facing.  It's a community help portal at its core, but it's really so much more.  It's already got a great wealth of content from the 'beta period' and it will only get more powerful as more questions are asked and more problems are solved.  To me, HiveNation is a first line of defense for questions I might have about new solutions, configuration changes, or other issues. I am looking forward to seeing HiveNation continue to be a place for Aerohive customers and employees to work together to provide better and more creative solutions.”
