City of Cupertino Reimagines How It Provides Services to Residents with Aerohive Cloud Networking Solutions

Sunnyvale, Calif. — February 29, 2016 — Aerohive Networks® (NYSE:HIVE) today announced that the City of Cupertino has deployed Aerohive access points, branch routers, and switches to deliver Wi-Fi to its employees and guests.

News Facts

  • Cupertino, California is located 45 miles south of San Francisco. It is a largely suburban community known for its excellent public school district and as the home of Apple Inc. With approximately 60,000 residents, the City of Cupertino employs 160 staff. While the City contracts many of its services including police and fire, the City provides many valuable and key services to its residents.
  • The City of Cupertino was seeking to update its wireless infrastructure to meet consumer expectations. Coupled with new leadership on the City Council, the IT Department was mandated to explore new solutions to enable connectivity in public spaces and city facilities. Its priorities were to embrace a new service model to reorient all services to the cloud, as well as placing a significant priority on mobility.
  • Cupertino initially selected Extreme Networks but after connectivity issues with Apple devices arose, the City explored solutions from Ruckus, Meraki, and Aerohive before choosing Aerohive for its outstanding user experience and ease of management.
  • The city selected Aerohive AP230 and AP1130 access points, and also uses branch routers and SR2024 switches from Aerohive. Using Aerohive’s cloud management platform HiveManager® Cupertino has set up designated network security parameters for employees, guests, and Apple TVs.
  • All City of Cupertino facilities are now equipped with Wi-Fi, including City Hall. Its recreation and community services’ thousands of participants are able to register on-location with wireless access rather than in-person at the main office. It also now provides iPads to process building permits and inspections.
