Product Reviews
Aerohive Networks SR2324P - switch - 28 ports - managed - rack-mountable is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from There is one interface to configure and go to as we manage our network. Valuable Features:Aerohive has been the perfect fit for us as a small organization. It's ease of use is a valuable aspect.Improvements to My Organization:It's great to have just one interface to configure and go to as we manage our network. If troubleshooting is needed, having the single dashboard helps immensely.Room for Improvement:Continue the updates as technology and the wifi world changes.Use of Solution:I have used it for four years.Deployment Issues:We have not encountered any deployment issues, once familiarity of the hardware and dashboard was gained.Stability Issues:We have not encountered any stability issues; greater stability than before.Scalability Issues:We have not encountered any scalability issues.Customer Service:Customer service is helpful.Technical Support:Technical support is excellent.Previous Solutions:We did not previously use a different solution.Implementation Team:It was an in-house setup.Cost and Licensing Advice:Be aware of the total cost for equipment and licensing.Other Advice:With multiple tasks, Aerohive has been a huge time saver and streamlined our IT tasks. It has improved the readability of our wireless network.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Management can be done with either an onsite appliance or a virtual appliance. Valuable Features:No controller is required. Management can be done with either an onsite appliance or a virtual appliance. The heat map is a great aid in choosing the number and location of access points.Improvements to My Organization:It allows our guests to register and accept our terms and conditions without the paperwork that the IT team used to have to do to get someone connected to WiFi.Room for Improvement:The firewall inside the AP is a little limited in what it can do. Aerohive support indicated that there are some improvements planned for the next release of software.Use of Solution:I have used it for six months.Deployment Issues:Deployment went without any major issues. Most of our issues were with getting cable runs to the AP locations. We wanted an open guest network that would allow access to only our website. That did not work as planned, and we needed support assistance.Stability Issues:Our WiFi has been running without issues since deployment. Changes have been easy to implement. We upgraded the AP software once and the HiveManager NG once without any downtime.Scalability Issues:We have not encountered any scalability issues. We added an AP to a new building in a few minutes; had a staffer plug in the AP and it appeared in our manager and received our configuration.Customer Service:Customer service is excellent. We purchased through a local reseller, and they were our point of contact; took the time to make sure everything was ready for our deployment.Technical Support:Technical support is very good. We did find a couple of software bugs, and we were escalated quickly through support levels and got resolutions for most within a couple of weeks, with the last pending a major software release. They did assist in a workaround until the update is available.Previous Solutions:We previously used Meraki. We looked at TCO for five years and the Aerohive looks like it will be less expensive, especially if purchased with the support up front.Initial Setup:Initial setup was a little complex because of the number of options in configuration. It was a little complicated because we did not find the management interface intuitive about making changes to previously created access groups and SSIDs.Implementation Team:A vendor team of one person implemented it. That was all that was required to get us up and running in one day for 14 APs and 8 SSIDs.ROI:ROI is just under three years. The guest registration allows us to require the user to read and accept terms and conditions before connecting and the basic firewall in the APs made it easy to enforce without extra hardware per site.Cost and Licensing Advice:There are good discounts for purchasing APs with the support up front. Go for the three- or five-year options if budget allows. The heat map tends to be very conservative so you might be able to use fewer APs than the tool suggests. An extra AP or two is cheaper than a full site survey.Other Solutions Considered:Meraki, Aruba, and Ubiquiti were evaluated along with Aerohive. We had evaluation APs from Meraki and Aruba. We looked at coverage, ease of use, and TCO.Other Advice:The cloud version of the controller is a little better supported than the on-premises version. Only select the onsite version if there are security concerns.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit pricey but worth it because of the features and support Valuable Features:Since these APs are controller-less they are very dependable and easy to configure. Other features that add value to our institution include deployment planning tools, load-balancing, auto-channeling, auto-power, Cooperative Control Protocols, Firewalls, QoS, to mention a few.Improvements to My Organization:Ease of use and features are its strongest points.Room for Improvement:Sometimes, packing a wide array of feature into these APs might overtax them. They would benefit from creating more powerful APs (Processing-wise)Use of Solution:4 yearsDeployment Issues:We started with a small deployment of 300 APs in 2010. Our campus now has ~1400 and we plan to expand to 2000 in the next 2 years.Stability Issues:When we installed the latest firmware versions on these APs, sometimes we encountered major/minor bugs that would force us to roll back until an appropriate patch was released. Also, with some bleeding-edge AC units we had some problems when they were under high client-loads were new clients would be unable to associate to the APs.Scalability Issues:Not really. We simply had to buy a more powerful Hive Manager appliance when we went over the 1000 AP mark, but other than that, this product scales very easily.Customer Service:I would rate it at 10 out of 10 as their staff is very polite with customers.Technical Support:I would rate their TAC team at 9 out of 10 as some of their Tier 1 engineers needed more experience and/or training.Initial Setup:The initial setup is very easy. the APs automatically find our local Hive Manager and make it very straight-forward to configure.Cost and Licensing Advice:Day to day cost is minimal, as these APs don't fail very often. The initial setp was a bit pricey as well as our expansion (if you calculate at around $1200 per newly deployed AP, including wired lines)Other Solutions Considered:I'd highly recommend this product if they're looking for feature-rich APs that are easy to deploy & manage.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It operates in a controller-less fashion. The APs can function if connectivity is lost. Valuable Features:The most valuable feature for me is the ability to operate in a controller-less fashion. Allowing the APs to function if connectivity is lost to the controller can be very valuable.Improvements to My Organization:These devices have allowed our wireless network deployment to go from a 'best-effort' nicety to an 'expected' accommodation. The dependability is definitely appreciated.Room for Improvement:The area that I would like to see improved is searching within Hivemanager. There have been several occasions where I was attempting to delete an 'unnecessary' or 'unused' configuration item and was advised by the system that it was still in use by another policy. Trying to find that policy was very time consuming.Use of Solution:We have had Aerohive deployed in our environment for over eight years.Deployment Issues:We did not encounter any issues related to deployment of the Aerohive access points.Stability Issues:We have not encountered any issues related to stability of the Aerohive access points.Scalability Issues:We have not encountered any issues related to scalability of the Aerohive access points.Customer Service:I would rate customer service around 8/10. We have not had any significant problems necessitating a call to customer service. They have always been willing to help.Technical Support:I would rate technical support at 8.5/10. The technical support teams seem to be pretty robust. Our main needs for technical support have been for hardware failures rather than software or configuration issues.Previous Solutions:We did not have any previous solutions in our environment.Initial Setup:This system was set up before I began managing the environment. I cannot say if there were issues in the initial setup, or speak to it being straightforward or complex.Implementation Team:This was implemented via an in-house team with the assistance of an Aerohive engineer.ROI:Our return on investment has been positive, overall. It is very difficult to gauge this statistic in our environment due to this product being used 'in addition to', rather than 'in place of' a wired infrastructure.Cost and Licensing Advice:Concerning Aerohive, this topic is not one that I have been involved with and, as such, I do not wish to give advice regarding.Other Solutions Considered:This system was set up before I began managing the environment. I cannot say which vendors, or even if other vendors were evaluated.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and consistent deployments allow for a seamless user experience and lowers the chances for administrative mistakes. Valuable Features:* HiveManager has been a valuable tool to manage/troubleshoot Access Points, Branch Routers, and connected clients.* Easy and consistent deployments allow for a seamless user experience and lowers the chances for administrative mistakes.Improvements to My Organization:We are able to provide wireless service while leveraging security mechanisms and utilizing some web filtering such as blocking torrent traffic.Room for Improvement:* Hivemanager NG does not support all devices.* Policy management - objects become tied together so you have to dismantle a policy to be able to delete it. They can not be renamed.* There are also configuration sections that require you to scroll through a list instead of just giving you an "edit" button.Use of Solution:5 years.Deployment Issues:Deployment was smooth. Being able to use the planning tool helped create the layout for AP's in the building and the best signal coverage.Stability Issues:Generally no however there are 2 occasions that caused us some problems.AP120 back on hivemanager 4 ran into a buffer issue where clients would just stop communicating even though they remained connected. This was a driver buffer overflow issue fixed with a newer firmware and AP121s.We had issues on hivemanager 6 where the roaming capabilities between access points stopped working. Also fixed with an update provided by Aerohive.Scalability Issues:No, we have many AP's and 100 branch routers. The hivemanager design makes it easy to add a new piece of hardware and just send an update with the existing policy to get it configured.Customer Service:Customer service meets expectations however there is room for improvement. Sometimes the communication occurs via email and can try your patience.Technical Support:Technical support has declined in recent years. Fairly functional however much more difficult than in the past to get escalated to someone that can help investigate specific issues. There also may be language barriers that require someone else to relay information.Previous Solutions:No. We researched multiple vendors however the controller-less system and hivemanager capabilities won. Why is there a minimum character of 120 if the answer is No.Initial Setup:Setup is fairly straightforward. Our initial deployment included using the Aerohive AP's to authorize radius requests which made it more complex for setup.Implementation Team:In house, Hivemanager makes policy configuration and deployment simple enough that engineers were able to design and configure the initial settings and have support staff deploy the equipment.ROI:We are able to increase employee productivity and provide guest internet services.We no longer need ethernet ports/switches in the conference rooms.Cost and Licensing Advice:Hardware is more expensive than a home router but there is a reason. In addition to the feature sets that hivemanager provides having a maintenance agreement allows us to provide better service to the end users.Other Solutions Considered:Meraki/Aruba.Other Advice:Buy it!Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The controller-less device management, built-in captive web portal, and reporting are the most valuable features. Valuable Features:The controller-less device management, built-in captive web portal, and reporting.Improvements to My Organization:We moved from 6 individual consumer-grade APs to the Aerohives. Keeping the devices up to date and obtaining usage info from them was a never ending ordeal. I didn't have 1 controller to deal with I had 6.Room for Improvement:The reporting, while a great improvement, is limited, at least in my experience, to the preconfigured charts and templates for those charts. Obtaining raw data from the Aerohive units for use in other applications requires Tech Support intervention.The Charts are nice for the circumstances for which they are developed. We just happen to be slightly outside of that so we have to hand write the data to enter elsewhere.To start with I work at a Library watching and running reports on clients is not really in our best interest. So many of the charts don’t help much at all and only if we are making a presentation to the board or something like that. Which doesn’t happen very often.We are really just after usage numbers to justify the money being spent. To be very specific all we need is the number of unique clients we get per day totaled up for the month. There is one report that gives us a bar graph showing unique clients each day of the month. However, since we can’t get those numbers in any other form we have to total them up by hand to get the total for the month.Not very difficult I admit. However, we need to do this every month for 7 different libraries. It would save us several minutes on the first of each month if we could just pull a report that could sum up those numbers for us or transfer the numbers into a preconfigured spreadsheet and then just send that to each library. The first of the month is typically so busy every extra minute helps.I can also imagine where some places would not want graphs or charts at all, just the raw data. They could then use the data they need in reports or other applications that they already use.The way it is now is still do-able and much better than it was. That was merely the only gripe I really had about Aerohive for which I have yet to find a resolution.Deployment Issues:We've had no issues with deployment.Stability Issues:We've had no issues with stability.Scalability Issues:We've had no issues with scalability.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hive Manager allows you to control all aspects of your WiFi network, from anywhere. Valuable Features:Aerohive's Hive Manager allows you to control all aspects of your WiFi network, from anywhere. The dashboard shows you the heavier users, the problem spots on your network, and the general health of your WiFi system, at a glance.Improvements to My Organization:One can easily set up and take down new networks for testing, or long term visitors, or easily set up temporary access for visitors.Room for Improvement:Not really. I'm not sure what more to say except that I can't think of any areas for improvement. The 120 character requirement for reviews is unnecessary.Use of Solution:5Deployment Issues:No issues with deployment. Again, I'm not sure what to say except that I didn't encounter any issues with deployment.Stability Issues:Have had no issues with stability. Again, and again, I'm not sure what to say except that I don't have any issues with stability.Scalability Issues:The adapters have scaled to meet the needs of our students without issues. Which means that I didn't encounter any issues with scalability.Customer Service:Excellent service. Yes, the service was and is excellent. And again, and again, the one hundred and twenty character requirement for reviews is unnecessary.Technical Support:Excellent support. Yes, the support was and is excellent. And again, and again the one hundred and twenty character requirement for reviews is unnecessary.Previous Solutions:Mikrotik, impossible to manage these devices. Mikrotik requires that you know their proprietary system to get it to work.Initial Setup:Very easy to set up. Much easier to set up than to meet the requirements for this review, the one hundred and twenty character requirement is very onerous.Implementation Team:Installed and set them up myself. If you can string wire and find an electric outlet you can install these WiFi adapters. The software is a breeze to use.ROI:I don't calculate that. These just work and fit our needs. Again, I don't calculate the return on investment. If the device makes my life easier, and it works, I judge it a positive move.Cost and Licensing Advice:In education, install via e-rate to make the product quite affordable. They are similar in price to most competing brands.Other Solutions Considered:Yes (ruckus, cisco, meraki, etc.) but this had the easiest interface to set up. Again, the interface is very easy to set up. A general knowledge of networks is all you need.Other Advice:No. No. No. I have no additional comments or advice, but I do have a suggestion, that the 120 character minimum is removed from these reviews.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Built in mapping ability, built in survey ability, Client Classification Policy (to be able to move clients to the appropriate VLAN), and PPSK are the most valuable features. Valuable Features:Built in mapping ability, built in survey ability, Client Classification Policy (to be able to move clients to the appropriate VLAN), and PPSK are the most valuable features.Improvements to My Organization:It gives us the ability to make guest connections to our wireless network easier. We don't have to worry about issues with getting 802.1x authentication set up, which can be tricky depending on Cert chains, virus scanners, and 3rd party hardware software that controls the wireless settings. Also give our residents the ability to have a better gaming experience with their gaming consoles, the Client Classification Policies let us move their gaming console to a less restrictive VLAN so they can make connections to do online gaming better.Room for Improvement:It would be nice if they could get better from separating an XBOX One console from a regular windows machine.I think their bandwidth steering could use some tweaking, in a high density deployment with a lot of 2.4Ghz only clients it causes problems and we had to turn it off in those areas.Maybe give the ability to turn off the newest HiveOS for the devices. When you go to push out a complete config to the wireless APs you have to be carful and uncheck the box to push out the latest OS. It would be easy to do on accident if you were in a hurry and were not paying close enough attentionUse of Solution:9 MonthsDeployment Issues:No, once the local Hive Manager VM was set up it was pretty simple to get the APs going. If you haven't ever had experience with an enterprise wireless system though, you would defiantly want training first.Stability Issues:Just some problems with bandwidth steering and 2.4Ghz only clients being able to connect regularly.Scalability Issues:No.Customer Service:8Technical Support:7Previous Solutions:Yes we used Extreme/Enterasys. They were starting to charge to much for their product, also some of the features that are included out of the box with Aerohive cost big $$$ with Extreme.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
