TechTarget Awards Aerohive® “Network Innovation Award” for Industry’s First Enterprise-Class 802.11ax and Pluggable Access Points

Milpitas, Calif. — October 1, 2018 — Aerohive Networks® (NYSE: HIVE), a Cloud Networking leader, today announced that it has won TechTarget’s Network Innovation Award in recognition for being first out of the gate with a trio of 802.11ax access points (AP630, AP650, and AP650X), along with the industry’s first pluggable access point (Aerohive ATOM AP30). TechTarget’s Network Innovation Award is a longstanding accolade, which highlights noteworthy advancements and achievements in the networking space.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized by TechTarget for being the first to roll out a family of 802.11ax access points and the industry’s first enterprise-class, portable, plug-and-play 802.11ac access point, the Atom AP30,” said Perry Correll, product management director, Aerohive Networks. “The 802.11ax standard is totally different than any technology that has come before. 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 – from 802.11b through 802.11ac Wave 2 – 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. It’s a huge difference.”
