Aerohive Networks Honored with 2018 CRN® Tech Innovator Award

Aerohive’s 802.11ax 600 Series Access Points Take Top Honors in the 2018 Wireless Networking Category

Milpitas, Calif. — November 13, 2018 — Aerohive Networks® (NYSE: HIVE), a cloud-management innovator and leader, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Aerohive® with a 2018 CRN Tech Innovator Award. These annual awards honor standout hardware, software, and services that are moving the IT industry forward. In compiling the 2018 Tech Innovator Award list, CRN editors evaluated 300 products across 34 technology categories using several criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges. Aerohive’s 802.11ax 600 Series access points were a finalist in the Wireless Networking category.

“We’re honored to be recognized by CRN as a Top Tech Innovator for our 802.11ax 600 series access points, as the 802.11ax standard is totally different than any technology that has come before,” said Perry Correll, product management director, Aerohive Networks. “Since the birth of Wi-Fi 21 years ago, a wireless access point could talk to only one device at a time. To meet demands of high-density environments, each new standard just made those conversations faster. In contrast, 802.11ax is high-efficiency, with multiuser connectivity that allows a single access point to talk to multiple devices simultaneously, both uploading and downloading, which is a huge difference.”

“Each year, the CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize technology vendor offerings that are reshaping the IT channel landscape by increasing worker productivity, reducing cost, and minimizing complexity for solution providers, IT departments, and end users,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s awards bring breakthrough ideas to the table for solution providers and their customers, in areas ranging from cloud to security to business intelligence to IoT. We congratulate all the winners and look forward to their future endeavors.”
