802.11ac Wireless Networks Migration with Aerohive

Aerohive's controller-less wireless LAN architecture is ideal for 802.11ac networks because it eliminates the need to deploy the expensive, high-capacity appliances that are required to handle the increased processing burden that enforcing policy in high-speed networks creates. Removing controllers from the network also eliminates the bandwidth bottlenecks, latency, and jitter that result from backhauling traffic through a controller appliance.

Resiliency is also increased when the single points of failure found in controller-based architectures are eliminated. The result is a scalable, wireless LAN that can support and enforce policy on high-performance, mission-critical applications.
