Overview:

Aerohive's Cloud VPN Gateway (CVG) is designed to simplify VPN termination for thousands of remote workers in an innovative, new way. The heart of the CVG is a lightweight, software-based solution for VMware-compliant equipment; the soul of the CVG is an enterprise-class VPN concentrator terminating thousands of VPN tunnels from remote access locations.

These unique characteristics, combined with HiveOS Routing intelligence, create breakthrough ease of branch office provisioning and management with the license-free pricing that's made Aerohive the networking partner of choice for thousands of organizations around the world.

Key Features and Benefits

Dynamic Routing Integration
The Aerohive CVG 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, the CVG 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 allow efficient use of WAN resources, reduce traffic congestion, and enhance remote site survivability.

Scalable, License-Free VPN Tunnel Termination
The Aerohive Cloud VPN Gateway delivers the best of both worlds—enterprise-class VPN scalability in a low-cost, lightweight software package. With the CVG, what used to be a big-iron investment is now 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, the CVG is up to the task and ready without any per-tunnel or client licensing fees.

Introducing Branch on Demand:

Aerohive's Branch on Demand™ is a Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution, purpose-built for small branches and teleworkers, that combines the BR branch router platforms, HiveOS router capabilities, a Cloud-enabled VPN gateway, and the Aerohive Cloud Services Platform. The resulting solution enables enterprises to provision branch office networks and teleworkers instantly, on-demand, with the robust Layer 2-7 corporate policy enforcement, enterprise class network visibility and remote remediation capabilities previously only available in complex, large branch solutions. This breakthrough teleworker and branch office networking solution enables all these advanced networking features across hundreds or thousands of branches and teleworkers with straight-to-site delivery and instant, on-demand provisioning.

The heart of the Branch on Demand solution is the new BR branch router platforms. Based on our robust HiveOS operating system, the BR routers require virtually no intervention from the end user at all. They simply plug the compact branch router in, and the device will leverage Aerohive's Cloud Services Platform to do the rest. The branch router will automatically find its HiveManager, whether it is located in the cloud or on premises, download the corporate wired and wireless security policies, establish its VPN connection, and the office is up and running in minutes. No need to install VPNs, download client software onto each user device, or train users on VPN use.

Operation is almost this simple from the administrator's point of view as well. Admins simply set up the configuration, and provide the parameters for branch routers to acquire the config. Unified wired and wireless policies make it particularly easy to add branch routers if you already have Aerohive access points installed. Then, when a device comes online, HiveManager will automatically push the configuration to the device. HiveManager is completely out-of-band, so a WAN disturbance does not affect the branch network or the Aerohive WLAN at all. And because HiveManager provides a single centralized interface to configure and manage both Aerohive access points and branch office devices, managing a thousand devices is literally as easy as managing one.
