Identity-based Policy Enforcement at the Edge
Technology Behind the Solution
With the cooperative control architecture, Aerohive's access points can enforce powerful and flexible identity-based security, access control, and quality-of-service (QoS) policies at the edge of the network. Applying those policies to the traffic at the local access point allows the QoS engines to instantaneously respond to the real-time variations in wireless throughput inherent in a dynamic RF environment. Enforcing QoS, access control, and security policies at the AP also allows traffic to be controlled right when it enters the network, rather than after the traffic has traversed multiple hops to reach a central controller.
