REDEFINE YOUR ACCESS LAYER

SD-LAN builds an application and policy driven wired and wireless access architecture, offering self-organizing and centrally managed networks that are simpler to operate, integrate, and scale.

  • Application Optimized – Prioritizes and changes the behavior of the network based on the applications
  • Identity Driven – Dynamically defines what users, clients, and things can do when they access the SD-LAN
  • Adaptable Access Layer – Self-optimizing, self-healing, and self-organizing wireless access points and access switches
  • Cloud Managed – Reduced cost and complexity of network operations with centralized public or private cloud networking
  • Open APIs – Programmable interfaces that allow tight integration of network and applications infrastructures

DOES YOUR NETWORK ADAPT TO CHANGE?

Modern networks must continuously adjust and adapt to keep up with the pace of change that mobility has created, something now unachievable in traditional network architectures. SD-LAN builds on the principles of Software Defined Networks (SDN) in the data center and Software Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) to create a new approach to adaptable, flexible, and cost effective wireless and wired access network. See why you need an SD-LAN.

A LAYERED APPROACH

Aerohive’s new SD-LAN solution builds on core capabilities developed by Aerohive over the last 10 years as well as new Access Points, Switches, and Cloud Management capabilities.

APPLICATION VISIBILITY AND CONTROL

Combining a sophisticated Quality of Service (QoS) engine and deep packet inspection firewall at the edge of the network, Aerohive provides dynamic optimization that adapts with applications, network, and business needs.

CONTEXT-BASED POLICIES

Define which users, devices, and things can enter the network, then granularly control what they are able to do once connected through role based access controls, including time of day or location based access, VLAN management, application rights, and bandwidth.

COOPERATIVE CONTROL

Aerohive’s unique distributed control Wi-Fi increases speed, scale, and resilience for enterprise networks of any size. State aware protocols self-heal, determine best path forwarding, and optimize client performance based on the environment.

NEXT-GENERATION CLOUD MANAGEMENT

HiveManager NG reduces complexity & cost with a single application for centralized automation & programmable management. Offered as a public or private Cloud solution, HiveManager NG delivers a new approach the deployment and support of modern access networks.

APPLICATIONS AND INSIGHTS

Aerohive’s open API platform delivers value beyond connectivity, with programmable interfaces that allow customers to build customized IT and business applications that leverage their own network driven data.

WHAT IS SD-LAN

SD-LAN builds an application and policy driven wired and wireless access architecture, offering self-organizing and centrally managed networks that are simpler to operate, integrate, and scale.

WHY YOU NEED SD-LAN

The pace of change in networks has increased exponentially, and IT admins need a way to prepare their networks for the future with a focus on improving application performance, reducing operational costs, and removing complexity.

THE BENEFITS OF SD-LAN

Mobility is transforming every aspect of our lives and driving an exponential pace of change in the network, but has your network adapted with the growing demands of your wireless users?

WHAT CUSTOMERS THINK OF SD-LAN

“One of the great advantages with Aerohive’s SD-LAN is that not only is it an intuitive solution and easy to manage, but as our needs change and expand, we can adopt and add enterprise features and adapt the network as required,” explains Roman Kern, Director of Systems and Operations, MassChallenge. “It was important to MassChallenge to find a solution partner that was also entrepreneurial at heart, and that understood our mission and vision. We are confident Aerohive is able to support and connect with us at all levels.”
