Whitepaper: The Ultralight Branch White Paper

by Aerohive NetworksJan 01, 2012

The distributed, virtualizing enterprise seeks to limit - or break - the relationship between physical location and the ability of a business to function. By shifting from traditional mid-sized to small branches to larger numbers of very small locations, the enterprise can more agilely address its business needs and opportunities.

This strategy requires that IT be able to implement a location for a small number of users with very low overhead, and that it be able to turn up services at such locations very quickly - and turn them down again just as quickly. Ultralight branches let the business drive the placement and lifespan of branches while minimizing real estate, infrastructure, operational, and service costs.


Whitepaper: Rethink Your Branch Network Strategy: Create More Flexible, More Productive Branch Networks

by Aerohive NetworksJan 01, 2012

In today's virtual enterprise, access to corporate resources must be secure, reliable, and manageable, with consistently enforced policy while simultaneously allowing access from anywhere at any time. This is why access network strategies have become critical to business growth. If IT can empower every remote worker with the full capabilities available at headquarters, the business can differentiate itself and directly influence the company's bottom line.


Whitepaper: The iEverything Enterprise: Understanding and Addressing IT's Dilemma in a BYOD World

by Aerohive NetworksJan 01, 2012

Virtualization, cloud computing, and wireless technology are fundamentally changing enterprise computing, providing revolutionary gains in productivity and cost savings. Powerful enterprise applications can now be delivered to almost any device, anywhere, at any time and take advantage of tremendous computing power available in consumer devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Regardless of whether these devices are issued corporately or personally owned, almost every IT department is experiencing the effects of unprecedented smart device adoption in their enterprise.

These changes demand that IT organizations think strategically about their Wi-Fi infrastructures, so that they can maximize the benefits of mobility and virtualization while helping ensure the flexibility needed to accommodate rapid growth and changing user needs. Integrating this new world of mobile, virtual computing begins with selecting the right wireless access infrastructure.

Since the 1990s, Wi-Fi has been implemented in laptops and by sheer momentum usage grew rapidly. However, wireless access remained little more than a convenient way to access basic services away from your desk. Desktops and laptops continued to have wired network connections for primary access and no IT manager in his right mind considered delivering mission-critical applications wirelessly. In 2007 about 300 million Wi-Fi devices were shipped, according to the Wi-Fi Alliance, and still Wi-Fi was not broadly leveraged for primary access. Until now.


Whitepaper: WLAN Management Moves to the Cloud

by Aerohive NetworksJan 01, 2012

While wireless and mobile topics have been central to any discussion regarding IT strategy for some time, an element that goes hand-in-hand with mobility is the provisioning of a broad range of services in the cloud. Cloud, for our purposes here, refers to any capability that is made available via a network connection, this so as to encompass both public (typically, Web-based) as well as local or private cloud services. The concept of cloud services, often referred to as Software as a Service, or SaaS, is of course very much in keeping with that other key contemporary trend in IT, virtualization (in this context, of services) which today forms the cornerstone of numerous IT strategies. But one of the most interesting possibilities in cloud-based services today is to offload or even outsource capabilities that would otherwise need to be provisioned and managed locally - in other words, converting the capital expense (CapEx) involved in implementing a needed IT service into an operating expense (OpEx) - the opposite of the advice we normally offer with respect to overall IT financial strategy.

In the Farpoint Group White Paper, the flexibility inherent in provisioning the service in question here, WLAN management, in the cloud, along with the potential for bottom-line cost savings, is enormous. These two factors - flexibility and economics - after all, drive today's steadily-increasing interest in the cloud for everything in IT, from processing to storage to Web-based publishing and interaction to - wireless LAN management.
