Aerohive Networks Named to CRN’s Emerging Vendors list for 2011
Sunnyvale, Calif. —August 24, 2011 — Aerohive Networks, the pioneer in controller-less Wi-Fi and cloud-enabled networking, today announced it has been chosen as one of CRN’s Emerging Vendors for 2011. Aerohive was honored in the networking category for its cloud-enabled Wi-Fi and routing solutions.
CRN announced on Friday, Aug. 19th that Aerohive has been named to this year’s Emerging Vendors list. Editor Andrew Hickey states, “Emerging doesn't mean what it used to. And this collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could barely imagine.
With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up the pace of innovation and technology mainstays like storage and networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past.
This list comprises companies from every discipline and technology facet. The only rules: They must have been established or have undergone a major transformation in 2005 or later and have a strategy to leverage the channel to go to market. Each of these companies brings something different to the table, and each has a fresh perspective. And some are already gaining a foothold in the bustling IT marketplace.
- Among these emerging vendors you'll find companies that have already established themselves as big dogs in their market segment, and others that just kicked off earlier this year, but are already creating chatter. They represent new partnership and go-to-market opportunities for solution providers looking to separate the wheat from the chaff in an IT market that is becoming increasingly more crowded and noisy.
“It’s an honor to be included in CRN’s list of Emerging Vendors for 2011,” said Rob Pollock, Director of Channel Sales, Aerohive Networks. “We have seen tremendous growth this year in adding new channel partners throughout the globe and we have introduced new applications like Partner Admin to help make it easier to partner with us and sell our solution. Aerohive’s innovative cloud-enabled distributed intelligence approach allows our partners to offer their customers a disruptive WLAN technology thus allowing our partners to differentiate from their competitors. Being recognized in CRN goes a long way to show our new and existing partners that Aerohive is the Wi-Fi vendor to partner with.”
