Overview:

The Aerohive Networks BR100 Router marries 802.11n performance, enterprise security and advanced wired/wireless management with cloud computing to deliver a zero-touch branch network deployment.

"Work anywhere" mobility meets enterprise routing and security in a compact device. With HiveOS Routing at its core, the BR100 includes fast roaming, user-based access control, and fully stateful firewall policies, as well as additional security and RF networking features at no extra cost; all without the need for a centralized or dedicated controller. Combining these award-winning capabilities with cloud-based services allows the BR100 to meet your budgetary requirements and blow past your remote workers' expectations.

Administrators need only set up a single configuration for remote devices via the familiar HiveManager interface; when the BR100 branch router is plugged in, it discovers the HiveManager automatically, and configuration is pushed to it. The BR100 enables administrators to run a thousand remote office VPNs as easily as a single location.

In addition to 802.11n WiFi, the BR100 supports multiple SSIDs and VLANs shared across wired and wireless interfaces, which can be configured in a number of ways to handle any small office/teleworker requirements. One SSID can be dedicated for employee access using 802.1X, for example, while another is used for guest access where devices are using a pre-shared key. Four 10/100 LAN ports are also configurable and can share a VLAN with a wireless SSID, as well as be protected by a Captive Web Portal or 802.1X.

The BR100 can be provisioned in several different ways, for maximum convenience and cost effectiveness. Organizations may choose to purchase the BR100 outright, and deploy/manage the devices as usual. Or the BR100 can be enabled via the innovative Branch on Demand. This subscription includes the BR100 support and a subscription to Aerohive’s HiveManager Online, for the ultimate in flexibility.

Since most of the traffic generated at branch or remote locations is destined for the Internet, Aerohive’s patent-pending Cloud Proxy automatically diverts that traffic through a cloud-based web security service, vastly reducing bandwidth costs by eliminating the need to route branch, remote office or mobile-user traffic back to a central location for filtering.

Layer 3 IPSec VPN and Flow-based Stateful Firewall

By using device-based IPSec VPN, HiveOS Routing features running on every BR100 allows remote users to access corporate resources via authenticated devices without the hassle of installing, configuring or maintaining additional VPN software. In addition, an advanced flow-based stateful firewall enforces policy on a per data flow basis allowing the Aerohive device to manage traffic via a combination of user identity and very granular mobile device type. A user can now be granted secure access to corporate resources based on both who they are and on the type of device that they are using, providing an invaluable additional level of security regardless of the users' location.

Wired/Wireless Access and Control

The BR100 includes 5 Ethernet switch ports, a single 802.11 b/g/n radio, a USB port for 3G/4G WAN backup, and a power adaptor. Since HiveManager manages the device's identity, the security and network access policy is the same regardless of whether the clients are connecting via wireless or wired ports.

Cloud Proxy

Cloud-based security services ensure that branch office communications are "clean" without requiring that IT run additional security appliances at every branch office or configure web proxy information on every end user's device. Since most of the traffic generated at branch or remote locations is destined for the Internet, Aerohive's patent-pending Cloud Proxy automatically diverts that traffic through a cloud-based web security service, vastly reducing bandwidth costs by eliminating the need to route branch, remote office or mobile-user traffic back to a central location for filtering.

Access That Grows With Your Business

As businesses grow so do the number of branches. The BR100 runs the same HiveOS that runs on all our products, which means that as your branches grow the BR100 can leverage Aerohive's Cooperative Control Architecture and mesh functionality to add wireless coverage to the branch locations as well. Simply install an additional Aerohive access point and the BR100 will form a wireless mesh connection with it. Within minutes your new access point will download your security polices and your secure wireless coverage will be expanded.
