Aerohive Networks, provider of controller-less Wi-Fi and cloud-enabled networking, has announced three new 802.11n access points (APs): HiveAP 330; 350; and 170.
The HiveAP 330 and 350 3×3:3 stream indoor and indoor industrial APs are designed to deliver higher throughput with the new three stream laptops now shipping, and to compensate for consumer and other low power Wi-Fi devices. These APs include high powered radios and high RX sensitivity that provide high performance, better coverage, and lower error rates.
The HiveAP 170 also uses high power, high receive sensitivity radios and has a robust environmental range and aggressive price point, allowing enterprises to affordably deploy outdoors virtually anywhere on earth.
“Aerohive has delivered APs that are significantly smaller, faster, and feature the latest 3×3:3 MIMO technology,” said Craig Mathias, principal, Farpoint Group. “The benefits will be seen in Wi-Fi networks with price performance that easily support today’s rapid proliferation of low power mobile subscriber devices.”
“Historically the wireless industry has delivered APs designed primarily for laptop connectivity for the enterprise,” said Adam Conway, VP of Product Management, Aerohive Networks. “With the acceptance of consumer smartphones and tablets into the enterprise APs must be able to compensate for the lower transmit power of these devices. Aerohive specifically built the HiveAP 330 and HiveAP 350 to be able to support these new clients along with laptops and other traditional enterprise Wi-Fi clients.”
