News Facts

  • To realize the opportunities of mobility, enterprises need a foundation of easy-to-manage, innovative, and scalable wireless networks.
  • As previously announced, Dell and Aerohive entered into a partnership agreement in April 2015, whereby Dell became a global reseller of Aerohive solutions. This provides customers access to comprehensive solutions, from the data center all the way to endpoint devices.
  • Since then, Dell announced its collaboration with Aerohive to integrate Dell N-Series switches with Aerohive’s HiveManager® NG to deliver converged wired and wireless enterprise-class management available in the public or private cloud. Customers can deploy best-of-breed wired networking from Dell and best-of-breed wireless from Aerohive with single-pane-of-glass, unified network management and unified support. Dell also expanded its industry-leading ProSupport to provide users with a single point of contact for unified network support.
  • The extension of HiveManager NG and the new support services are milestones in executing Dell and Aerohive’s shared vision of cloud-managed IT to provide simplified and streamlined operations, configuration, monitoring and troubleshooting for all elements of customers’ networks.



“We wanted an additional wireless solution with excellent performance and management capabilities, while still offering extensive range, and Aerohive was the best fit,” said Jody Cantello, network administrator, Service King. “We plan to use HiveManager NG to manage our wired and wireless networks, which will greatly simplify management of the environment. HiveManager NG, along with the Dell Networking N2048 switches, will provide PoE capability to the company’s 300 Aerohive access points.”

“To have a unified wireless platform across all operations and branch offices, and have it just work has undeniably advanced the efficiency and productivity of our employees, as well as streamlined operations for our IT staff,” said Will Simons, IT director, Movement Mortgage.

“Our students and teachers get stable wireless access at all times with the Dell and Aerohive solution, which is critical because they’re relying on their devices every day in the classroom,” said Abdul Sandooya, IT technical team leader, Canadian school district.

“Not only does Aerohive provide a top-notch wireless solution, the support we received as we set up the enterprise network from the bottom-up was invaluable,” said Matt Hellens, IT director, Emmet County. “Having control at the network edge and enabling seamless integration with Dell for a unified networking infrastructure were key to the success of implementing wireless operations across the entire county. The flexibility of the solution, from having the management system on premises to controlling how employees and guests connect, as well as providing multiple avenues for enhanced security, gives us confidence that Aerohive will meet our current and future networking requirements across Emmet County.”

“We continue to deliver a converged cloud-managed campus networking solution to our customers through our combined offerings with Aerohive,” said Jeff Baher, vice president, Dell EMC Networking. “Our customers want a simpler, more scalable, and cost-effective network solution, and that’s exactly what they experience through Dell and Aerohive’s integrated wired and wireless solution.”

“We are extremely pleased with the way our combined solution is allowing hundreds of new customers to discover the benefits of wired and wireless management with Dell’s best-in-class N-Series switches and Aerohive’s industry-leading SD-LAN solutions, including AP250 access points and HiveManager NG,” said David Flynn, chief executive officer, Aerohive Networks. “We look forward to delivering the benefits of mobility and the cloud to the market.”
