DEVICES

APPLE

With the explosion of iOS and OS X devices everywhere, 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 customers could associate this with the devices they are holding in their hands instead of the real culprit: Wi-Fi infrastructure.

The Two Common Causes of a Poor Wi-Fi Experience

  • 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 AP needed.
  • Complex Enterprise-grade 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.

The Aerohive Solution

Aerohive delivers an enterprise Wi-Fi infrastructure solution that enhances the Apple mobile device connectivity experience, and takes only minutes to deploy. Aerohive products “just work” and are typically 50% less expensive than more complex, less – capable alternatives. Aerohive also leads in adding specific capabilities to enable the best possible deployment of Apple devices in enterprise and education; a great example of which is the Bonjour Gateway capability.

SECURITY

BARRACUDA NETWORKS

Aerohive has the advantage of knowing all the available user context because devices are connecting and users are authenticating to the access points and switches directly in order to gain access to the network. Barracuda Networks firewalls and web filters, on the other hand, are generally installed at the gateway to the network, and have visibility into everything coming or going in aggregate, but the user context is often obscured due to all the network infrastructure between the gateway and the connected client. Together Aerohive and Barracuda Networks solve the problems of the mobile first enterprise by combining information about user context with application visibility and controls. Content filtering policies can be customized to restrict specific websites or look for patterns in web addresses. Administrators can also create policies that control web file downloads based on their file types. For additional information, please visit www.barracudanetworks.com.
