Aerohive® Helps Customers Look Forward by Looking Back with Historical Comparative Analytics

Cloud-Powered Comparative Analytics Enable Organizations to Baseline Their Network Performance Over Time Against Similar Sized Deployments and/or Industries

Milpitas, Calif. — April 12, 2018 — Aerohive Networks® (NYSE: HIVE), a Cloud Networking leader, today announced new historical reporting capabilities for its network performance monitoring tool Comparative Analytics, a recently introduced big data toolset designed to help organizations anonymously benchmark infrastructure and client device metrics against similar sized deployments and industries.

Comparative Analytics enables organizations to assess the state of their network beyond the information presented by their own network management system, which due to the design approach taken by many vendors today, often leave IT administrators with a slew of subjective and unclear reports that don’t offer any real insight into how the network is actually operating. Comparative Analytics removes any ambiguity, offering organizations a broader scope of useful, objective, and actionable datasets that help them determine network correction or upgrade requirements.

With Aerohive’s latest Cloud updates, organizations now have access to a wider set of valuable real time and historical measurements, focusing on bandwidth usage, unique client connections, technology types, devices with poor health, and upcoming wired and Wi-Fi metrics including WAN latency, switch utilization, Wi-Fi connection success, and IoT device population profiling, that can be viewed within HiveManager or downloaded for offline consumption. The newly formatted Comparative Analytics historical reporting chart metrics over an extended period of time, allowing administrators to evaluate whether configuration changes made to the network are having a positive impact on the network over time.

Comparative Analytics is an innovative approach to presenting network data in real world terms, rather than cryptic streams of data. Ultimately, mobility-driven organizations want to know if their network infrastructure is performing as expected or not, and having a view of other networks helps to create a baseline for comparison. This big data service from Aerohive is akin to credit scoring, guiding organizations as to where their network operations fall in relation to similar deployments. In drawing this comparison, it’s one thing to know your own credit score, but if everyone were to have the same score, then the bar for success criteria would change, Comparative Analytics reveals where your network performance bar is and how to stay above it.
