After Rigorous Selection Process Horry County Schools Selects Aerohive’s Controller-less WLAN Solution

Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2010 -- Aerohive Networks, creators of the award-winning cooperative control wireless LAN (WLAN) architecture, announced today that Horry County Schools, the third largest school district in South Carolina serving more than 38,000 students, has selected Aerohive’s controller-less WLAN solution as the cornerstone of its next generation WLAN network. When fully implemented, the school system will deploy almost 3,600 wireless Access Points (AP) throughout its 50 schools.

Horry County Schools initiated an exhaustive evaluation process that included multiple well-known WLAN vendors. Due to the size of the implementation and highly distributed environment, Aerohive’s controller-less based WLAN architecture quickly caught the attention of evaluators. The team ultimately selected Aerohive because it provided cost-effective controller-free architecture, ease-of-expansion, high-redundancy, and centralized management.

“Wireless is a critical component to the learning experience we provide to our students,” said Mike Cherry, Program Specialist-Network Services at Horry County Schools. “Aerohive’s innovative, controller-less WLAN solution far exceeded our expectations in terms of coverage, performance, ease of use and reliability.”

Aerohive’s cooperative control WLAN solution offers significant cost savings to organizations that run a distributed network. Controller-based alternatives require the purchase of an expensive WLAN controller for each site. Aerohive's cooperative control architecture completely eliminates controllers from the network, resulting in significant cost savings.

“Because we don’t have to deploy a controller at each school, our capital expense, as well as on-going costs, are significantly less than the other products we evaluated,” Cherry continued.

Aerohive’s enterprise-class WLAN solution is built on its Cooperative Control Wireless LAN (WLAN) architecture. The technology combines an enterprise-class access point with a suite of cooperative control protocols and functions that delivers the full benefits associated with controller-based wireless LANs – but without the additional burden and cost of hardware controllers or an overlay network.

About Horry County Schools
The district is made up of 50 schools within nine attendance areas. Each area consists of a high school and the elementary and middle schools that feed into it. The district has 26 elementary schools, 10 middle schools, nine high schools, two career & technical academies, a Scholars Academy, Early College and an alternative school.
