Aerohive Networks, the Wi-Fi solutions provider, today (19 December 2013) announced it shipped its 500,000th controller-less, enterprise-class access point and has added 4,000 new end customers to date in 2013 across the distributed enterprise, healthcare, retail and education markets.
In 2006, California-based Aerohive developed a controller-less wireless LAN architecture called Cooperative Control. This highly differentiated approach enables secure, scalable, high-performance, and mission-critical wireless networking in a manageable and cost effective way to industries such as healthcare, retail, education and in particular to highly distributed enterprises.
The rise of mobile and BYOD adoption and the deployment of Wi-Fi across the enterprise has allowed Aerohive to ship its 500,000th enterprise AP since its inception. Through 30 September 2013, Aerohive has added 4,000 new end customers in 2013 and grown its global customer base to approximately 11,500 end customers worldwide.
“Over the past few years, Aerohive has grown to help organisations in every industry adapt to today’s mobile explosion and the need for enterprise-class Wi-Fi,” said David Greene, chief marketing officer, Aerohive Networks. “We’re proud to announce our newest customer acquisition milestone along with the shipping of our 500,000th AP.”
