Community Based Support Program
Welcome to HiveCare Community Support.
This community-based support program is designed to complement Aerohive’s product offering and provide a cost-effective support solution through real-time, community technical support and product troubleshooting to help you, the end user, have a successful out-of-the-box experience in the shortest amount of time.
HiveCare Community Support is intended for Aerohive Connect customers.
Coverage and Support
HiveCare Community Support is delivered by HiveNation, a community of Aerohive product users who discuss and review our products, exchange use experiences and provide trouble-shooting advice and feedback to its members. Aerohive does not accept Support requests from Community Customers, whether by phone, web, or email.
Support Response and Service Level Commitments
There are no service-level commitments for HiveCare Community Support. When you access HiveNation, you pose your support issue or troubleshooting question to the thousands of members of our HiveNation Community. HiveNation members will provide feedback and propose solutions to your support issue or troubleshooting question. In exceptional situations, the Community Moderator sponsored by Aerohive may refer a question directly to Aerohive’s ATAC support, this is accomplished be completing the form found on the Community and submitting it per instructions that are provided.
Customers who purchase Connect products receive all commercially available software releases for Aerohive Connect. Aerohive automatically makes these updates available through its Cloud Services platform. Customers who purchased Connect products do not need to download individual updates.

Product Returns – Regular Delivery
All Connect products are covered by Aerohive’s Limited Product Warranty. For Connect products, the Warranty Period starts from the time you first activate the product. If you need to replace a Connect product due to product failure or performance the product is covered by our Limited Product Warranty. To return the product you must first request a Return Material Authorization (“RMA”) this is accomplished by completing the form found on the Community and submitting it per instructions that are provided. You then return the suspected product and Aerohive will ship a refurbished replacement product to you within 24 business hours of receipt of the suspected product.
Product Returns – Advance Delivery
If you need to replace a Connect product due to product failure or performance issues and you have upgraded the product to Aerohive’s Select platform, purchased HiveCare Select Support or purchased HiveCare Connect, you must similarly request an RMA for the product by completing the form found on the Community and submitting it per instructions that are provided. However, Aerohive will arrange for advance delivery of a refurbished replacement product (typically for delivery within 24 business hours of receipt of your RMA request).
