Aerohive Networks - Aerohive unleashes the potential of enterprise Wi-FiHealthcare

Secure and Scalable Wireless LAN Solutions for Healthcare Organizations

High-speed wireless networking applications are booming in healthcare organizations because of the mobile nature of caregivers and the growing use of networked imaging and video in patient care settings. The distributed yet centrally manageable Aerohive architecture handles this flood of application traffic with the optimized availability and performance that clinicians can rely on as they strive to improve patient care quality and reduce healthcare delivery costs.

Features and Benefits

Speed and accuracy of patient information delivery have a direct impact on an organization's ability to provide high-quality, yet cost-efficient healthcare services. Aerohive 802.11n wireless LAN features deliver the availability, security, scalability, and performance benefits that healthcare organizations require balanced with a straightforward pricing model that minimizes capital and operational costs.

Features Benefits
Simple, Zero-Touch Deployment Model (for routers and Wi-Fi networks
  • No need for wireless or networking expertise
  • Just plug in the router or AP
  • The device will “phone home” and get its configuration from a single, centralized HiveManager
  • Changes are automatically pushed to the device
Fast, Secure Roaming and Identity-based Security (enforced in every access point as a user connects)
  • Provides mobility while maintaining compliance with the network security aspects of HIPAA privacy mandates
  • Enhances security above and beyond 802.11's inherent authentication and over-the-air encryption including integrated firewall, WIPS, VPN, RADIUS, and Active Directory support
  • Users can easily and securely roam between access points and the router with no loss in connectivity.
Fully Distributed Processing, Data Forwarding, and Control Architecture
  • Results in higher network performance – no controller bottlenecks and no dependence on a vulnerable WAN connection to a remote controller
  • Reduces capex (capital expenditures) because no controller purchases are required
  • Improves budget control with the ability to "pay as you grow"
Mesh Technology for AP-to-AP Direct Communications
  • Eliminates need to cable APs to switches in "clean" areas, such as ORs, which have strict limitations on dirt and dust levels
  • Ensures highest levels of network availability and resiliency, as network "self heals" around any failure points
Centralized Management across multiple sites from a single console or online service
  • Same HiveManager for routers and access points
  • Unified wired/wireless policies enable the same experience for both wired and wireless access
  • Offers easy-to-use management for streamlining operations and reducing opex (operating expenses)
  • Enables management in central locations, simplifying operation in distributed sites
  • Provides easy access to PCI reports
Secure Guest Access with Integrated Captive Web Portal
  • Provides easy-to-deploy guest access, via access points and routers
  • Offers multiple methods to ensure acceptable use or guest authentication
  • Provides protection against intrusions by temporary users
Simple Pricing Model and No Feature Licensing
  • Grows with your needs (linear cost curve as you grow)
  • Eliminates budget "surprises" as you need additional features for new applications (i.e. QoS, VPN, mesh)
Subscription Model for Remote clinics and healthcare providers
  • Provides maximum flexibility for deploying temporary networks for emergency clinics or in-home care
  • Eliminates pre-staging and remote IT expertise requirements
  • Built in network-based mobile device management
