Overview:

Aerohive Networks HiveManager NMS is a management system for Aerohive networking products. HiveManager enables simple policy creation, firmware upgrades, configuration updates, and centralized monitoring from a single console.

Aerohive combines enterprise-class access points, branch routers, and switches with a suite of Cooperative Control protocols and functions to provide unified wired and wireless access that ensures consistent policy, permissions, and security based on identity and device type regardless of user location. HiveManager provides a centralized management console for the entire network which enables global policy, configuration, and monitoring with full application visibility of thousands of APs, routers, and switches. HiveManager lowers operating costs by speeding deployment, configuration and monitoring of the entire network.

Features & Benefits

Bringing up a network of Aerohive devices is as easy as plugging them in and browsing to the HiveManager web interface on a Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X browser. Aerohive devices connect to the HiveManager using the secure CAPWAP-DTLS protocol which traverses NAT and firewalls. It is possible to bring up an entire enterprise-class network in just a few minutes. HiveManager offers other key benefits, including:

  • Customizable dashboard with application visibility and control based on user idenity
  • Unified policy, configuration, and reporting with contextual awareness for wirless, routing, switching, VPN, IP address management, and security polocoes

  • Advanced Enterprise mode which supports larger organizations with sophisticated policy requirements
  • Integrated Planner, Packet Capture, and Client Tracker tools to enable easy scoping, deployment, and remote troubleshootong
  • Spectrum analysis to detect and identify non-wi-fi sources of interference at 2.4GHz of 5GHz
  • Client device and Operating System Reporting with top clients by usage, peak treands per SSID, and client distribution by Aerohive device
  • Powerful device templates and device classification tags allow applying custom configurations across device groups based on hierarchy, location, or function

HiveManager is accessible via a web browser on Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X, providing a robust web application interface with which to access management interface. With advanced features like sero-configuration deployment, integrated IP address managemnet and virtual HiveManagers, HiveManager provides market-leading unified managemnet, monitoring, and remoting visibility for all your Aerohive devices.
