Aerohive Positioned in the “Visionaries” Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Wireless LAN Infrastructure
Date:2/16/2010

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) February 16, 2010 -- Aerohive Networks, creators of the award-winning cooperative control wireless LAN (WLAN) architecture, announced today that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the 2010 Magic Quadrant for Wireless LAN Infrastructure (Global), (1). Vendors were evaluated based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision.

According to the report, a “vendor in the Visionaries quadrant demonstrates an ability to increase features in its offering to provide a unique and differentiated approach to the market. A visionary will have innovated in one or more of the key areas of WLAN technologies (convergence, security, management or operational efficiency).” Innovation is weighted highly by Gartner in evaluating a vendor’s completeness of vision.

The report notes, “the look and feel of controllers continues to change. Since the introduction of controller based architectures most vendors use a separate appliance but slowly the hardware has transformed (subsumed into blades or appliances) or in some cases vanished. While the structured network functionality still exists, the physical controller has vanished either into the cloud or into the one or more access points. These new solutions in addition to lower priced access points continue to reduce the total cost of ownership for WLAN connectivity at the edge of the network.”

“We believe being positioned in the ‘Visionaries’ quadrant of the 2010 Magic Quadrant is validation of our cooperative control architecture, and is an indicator of the future of WLANs,” said David Flynn, chief executive officer, Aerohive. “Aerohive’s pioneering WLAN architecture eliminates the need for centralized network controllers to provide customers with high-performance, highly-reliable, scalable, secure, and cost-effective wireless solutions. To realize the potential of 802.11n the market must break away from the costly, restrictive, controller-based architecture – and we look forward to continuing to drive innovation in the WLAN marketplace to pave the way for that shift.”

Aerohive’s cooperative control WLAN access points (HiveAPs) require no network controllers or overlay networks. Instead, software in the HiveAPs enables them to self-organize into groups called Hives. The result is enterprise-class network management and security without the cost, performance, and availability issues associated with controller-based deployments. Cooperative control eliminates the controller as a single point of failure, making the system more reliable. It also increases performance by eliminating the data bottleneck that controllers create – especially in 802.11n networks where increased bandwidth can cause choke points at the controller.
