Aerohive Networks, Brocade bag networking contracts

Speed networking
Springhill Medical Center and Cumberland University have selected Aerohive Networks and Brocade to fulfil their networking needs.

Both the medical center and the university experienced increases in their Wi-Fi infrastructure needs, driven by the rapid adoption of smartphones, tablets, and wireless devices.

The Alabama based hospital had earlier relied on an outdated switch infrastructure, while the Tennessee based private university wanted to replace its network core.

“The physical classroom that we all know is quickly extending to the cloud so naturally, our students expect convenient access to courseware and learning resources when and where they choose,” said William Lambert, director of information technology, Cumberland University.

The new network system is expected to deliver 10 to 40 GbE for critical healthcare applications. It is also expected to provide rapid ROI with 30 percent savings on equipment and significantly low maintenance costs.

Aerohive’s networking system, with the support a cloud managed mobility platform, helps customers to grow their wireless network from one access point to several other access points and across thousands of locations.

With the latest networking system, Cumberland has been able to improve its students’ Bring Your Own Device experience.

Few months ago, Aerohive launched HiveManager Next Generation cloud management platform for mobile first organizations which is ideal for education customers because of its onboarding, streamlined user experience and simplified troubleshooting.

In April, Baltimore County Public Schools has deployed Aerohive’s controller less network solution. The solution was designed to provide Wi-Fi access to over 110,000 students and 18,000 faculty across 174 schools while replacing Meru technology.

Last year in April, Palm Beach County School District deployed Aerohive wireless networking solution to support classroom digital learning.
