  • Aerohive AP122X
    2x2 802.11ac Dual Radio Access Point

    Aerohive AP122X

    Includes HiveManager Connect & Hivecare Community



    Enterprise-Grade 2x2, 2-Stream, 802.11n/ac Access Points with External Antennas for Medium-Density Environments, as well as IoT and Location-Based Services

    AP122X provides the full breadth of Aerohive’s enterprise-grade feature set and IoT readiness in medium density environments, achieving 802.11ac performance with data rates up to 867 Mbps, along with built-in BLE and USB port using existing 802.3af PoE infrastructure.

    Powered by HiveOS and the innovative distributed Cooperative Control architecture, AP122X brings the best of coverage and advanced 802.11ac technology. In addition, the integrated BLE radio and a USB interface in the access point opens up a multitude of deployment use-cases in IoT and proximity/location-oriented services.

    The AP122X benefits from an AI-driven Wi-Fi architecture capable of self-organizing, self-learning, self-healing and self-optimizing in the most challenging environments. Cooperative Control eliminates single points of failure and bottlenecks, delivering bulletproof stability and unbridled performance, perfectly complimenting the unrivalled capabilities of HiveOS - a stateful L2-L7 DPI firewall for context-based access security, advanced and customizable QoS for traffic optimization, intelligent meshing algorithms, Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK) and much more.

    All Aerohive APs can be centrally managed using Aerohive’s out-of-band cloud network management system - HiveManager. HiveManager is an industry-leading and visionary approach to cloud-managed networking, built from the ground up to take full advantage of the SD-LAN and SDWAN solution from Aerohive. Working in tandem with Aerohive’s cutting-edge HiveOS, HiveManager leverages state-of-the-art cloud technology. Benefit from unified, full-stack management of Wi-Fi, switching and routing, centralized monitoring and configuration, real-time and historical reporting, simplified troubleshooting, integrated RF planner tools and much more.

    HiveManager is available in two editions: Connect and Select. The Connect solution is bundled with Aerohive access points and switches and is free for the lifetime of the device. Connect is the perfect solution for those looking to provide robust, yet enterprise-grade connectivity, without having to invest in the full suite of management features. The optional upgrade to Select unlocks a slew of advanced features and capabilities that enhance network management, security and visibility.
