Chinese International School Rapidly and Easily Expands Its Cloud-Managed Network Across Multiple Campuses with Aerohive® HiveManager

Milpitas, Calif. — June 3, 2019 — Aerohive Networks® (NYSE: HIVE), a leader in cloud-managed networking, today announced that the prestigious Chinese International School in Hong Kong has adopted and expanded their cloud-managed network across multiple campuses using the newest version of HiveManager®, Aerohive’s cloud-based network management platform powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML).

Located in Hong Kong, the Chinese International School is a private school with over 30 ethnicities represented and is widely recognized as the best academically focused institution in Hong Kong. Originally opened in 1983, the school has expanded over the years to include multiple campuses with over 1,500 students and 320 staff members. Currently, there is an average of 2,600 clients on the network on a given day, with the school’s network supporting up to three devices per person.

A key aspect of the Aerohive experience is how the cloud-based network management platform, HiveManager, handles firmware updates quickly and with ease. HiveManager allows the school to update a few access points at a time so it can test in a controlled environment prior to rolling out to the entire school. From a security point of view, the school’s IT team is leveraging Aerohive’s Private Pre-Shared Key to onboard students and staff to the network. PPSK is more secure than PSK, as employees can be limited to a set number of devices, while maintaining ease of use, as well as remaining compatible for all device types. As the school expands to IoT devices, PPSK will continue to be a core part of its IT security plans.

“The Aerohive network runs on autopilot. Day to day, we don’t have to even think about it,” said Sunil Talwar, deputy director of operations, Chinese International School.

Aerohive and Data World Computer & Communication Limited first worked with the staff at the Hangzhou school to ensure the adoption and expansion of the Wi-Fi network was finished on time, on budget, and the requirements satisfied administrators, teachers, and students. Because Aerohive’s access points are managed from HiveManager, no additional onsite hardware was needed.

“Chinese International School (CIS) is another great example that Aerohive’s cloud-managed architecture is the best, most reliable solution in its class, providing a very compressive answer to address the need of expansions and green field deployments,” said Ronen Cojocaru, AVP, sales, APAC. “CIS is a very important customer for us, and one of our first education deployments in the region. Aerohive’s latest technology, powered by artificial intelligence, Client 360, and Network 360, provides fast and easy connectivity, leading the Asia-Pacific region to sustainable growth across all segments and also into Service Providers across APAC.”

After finishing the Hangzhou campus, Aerohive and Data World Computer & Communication Limited went to work on the Hong Kong campus network deployment. With Aerohive’s distributed model, the installation and management of an additional campus was drastically easier to deploy than an alternative controller-based installation would have been. Like the Hangzhou campus, no onsite hardware was needed to connect the new access points to HiveManager. It was as simple as plugging access points into the network, and Aerohive’s auto-provisioning took over with policy rollout and firmware updates.
