Aerohive AP141 802.11n Dual Radio Access Point
The AP141 access points provide 2×2:2 802.11n wireless access as well as optimized RF performance and enhanced receive sensitivity to provide a ground-breaking user experience for networks supporting multiple types of clients, including consumer-grade and bring-your-own devices (BYOD).
The AP141 is a cost-effective, enterprise-grade 2×2 MIMO solution, which is ideal for education, healthcare, and distributed enterprise environments. With two radios, concurrent 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz access, and security scanning across both bands, the AP141 provides top performance and security at an entry-level price point.
All HiveAPs support the feature-rich HiveOS service architecture. HiveOS is an implementation of Aerohive’s Cooperative Control Architecture which enables multiple APs to organize into groups or “hives,” that share control information enabling functions such as fast layer-2/layer-3 roaming, cooperative RF management, security and mesh networking without requiring a dedicated system controller. The resulting feature-rich capability enables a next generation wireless LAN architecture, called a Cooperative Control Wireless LAN Architecture. This architecture provides the benefi ts of a controller-based implementation, yet has a lower deployment/ownership cost, is more reliable, more scalable, higher performing and more suitable for today’s proliferation of wireless applications than controller-based architectures.
Network Management Solutions
Aerohive’s HiveManager NMS is a central management solution for Aerohive HiveAPs. HiveManager supports simple policy creation, firmware upgrades, confi guration updates, and centralized monitoring throughout the entire Aerohive deployment, whether building-wide, campus-wide, or global – all from a single console. Because the HiveManager is not actively involved in passing traffi c or in making forwarding decisions, it eliminates the traffi c bottlenecks and complexities of controller-based solutions, particularly in geographically distributed environments. As a result, control is distributed, while management is centralized. Essentially, the HiveManager solution delivers the benefi ts of both autonomous APs and controller-based solutions, without the drawbacks of either approach.
