Aerohive and Apple
Delivering a High Quality Wi-Fi Connected Apple Device Experience
With the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) craze and increased corporate use of consumer devices being driven by the adoption of iOS and OS X devices such as the iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone, MacBook and iMac, improved Wi-Fi connectivity is becoming a critical part of delivering a high-quality Apple device experience. If Wi-Fi connectivity is poor or broken, Apple users could associate this with the devices they are holding in their hands instead of the real culprit: the Wi-Fi infrastructure.
Two Common Causes of a Poor Wi-Fi Experience Are
- Consumer-grade Wi-Fi infrastructure is usually purchased in a retail store and installed by the customer. Consumer-grade Wi-Fi often works at an acceptable level for a few undemanding devices in a single Access Point (AP) deployment, but poorly in a more typical environment where there are many demanding devices and more than one APs needed.
- Complex, Centralized, Controller-based Wi-Fi infrastructure is intended to support a large number of demanding devices. This type of Wi-Fi infrastructure can deliver a poor connectivity experience as it is complex to deploy, difficult to configure and manage, and often not set up exactly as intended even with professional installation. It is significantly more expensive, and when it is time to expand the Wi-Fi for more coverage or to handle more Apple devices the expense and complexity continues.
