Key Features and Benefits
Dynamic Routing Integration
The Aerohive VPN Gateway Virtual Appliance can integrate with standards-based dynamic routing protocols such as Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Routing Information Protocol version 2 (RIPv2) to collect routing information from corporate routers and distribute the necessary information to the Aerohive branch routers. Similarly, it can also collect routing information from branch router devices and advertise it to surrounding corporate devices to provide paths to the remote networks. Dynamic Routing capabilities allows efficient use of WAN resources, reduces traffic congestion, and enhances remote site survivability.
Scalable, License-Free VPN Tunnel Termination
The Aerohive VPN Gateway Virtual Appliance delivers the best of both worlds—enterprise-class VPN scalability in a low-cost, lightweight software package. The VPN Gateway Virtual Appliance is a simple software download with one-click install. No more over-buying capacity and licenses for future tunnel capacity requirements—just add more computing power to the virtual instance and it’s ready to terminate more license-free tunnels. Whether the deployment requires terminating five tunnels or 5,000, it is up to the task and ready without any per-tunnel or client licensing fees.
