The Walls Are Talking: Aerohive Delivers Combination Wallplate Access Point and Switch with Embedded IoT Capability

Aerohive’s New AP150W Can Be Installed in Less Than Two Minutes

Milpitas, Calif. — August 15, 2017 — Aerohive Networks® (NYSE:HIVE), innovator in Cloud Management of Access Networks, today announced the AP150W, the industry’s first small form factor wallplate Access Point and Switch combination with embedded IoT capability. Half the price of rival solutions, the AP150W is designed both for Ethernet-jack wall mounting or placement on a desktop, and can be installed in less than two minutes.

“Why settle? Wi-Fi has become the primary connectivity at work, home, and play,” said Alan Amrod, senior vice president, Products Organization, Aerohive Networks. “By packing 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet switching, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and ZigBee technologies into a small form factor that can be installed in less than two minutes, Wi-Fi in every room has finally become affordable and easy.”

Available in early September, at $299 including subscription-free lifetime Cloud Management with Aerohive Connect™, the introduction of Aerohive’s AP150W is significant because of the following:

  • Aerohive’s Cloud Management “radically simplifies” provisioning of the AP150W at unmatched scale in both private and public-cloud implementations.
  • The AP150W delivers superior 802.11ac Wave 2 performance with the industry’s only 3×3:3 configuration, which can punch out Netflix steaming, VoIP phone calling, and video conference-capable speeds of 1.3 Gbps.
  • By using Aerohive’s Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK) capability, you can simplify guest and IoT secure network access without the cost and complexity of 802.1X.
  • Every AP150W has anti-counterfeit and platform-integrity measures that protect network secrets and prevent operation without valid access verification.
  • For greater use case flexibility, the AP150W can power VoIP phones, IoT sensors, and cameras through its integrated PoE Switch and Passive Passthrough Port, which provides investment protection for existing cabling and Switch infrastructure.
