    802.11n Outdoor Wireless Access Point

    Aerohive AP170

    This product is no longer available, please contact us for a replacement solution.


    Aerohive Networks AP170 is a high-performing, cost-effective, and rugged 802.11n outdoor access point (AP). The AP170 provides high-performance dual concurrent (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n (2x2) MIMO as well as a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port.

    The Aerohive AP170 is an enterprise-grade, high performance (2x2) MIMO solution, designed for high bandwidth demand outdoor wireless environments. With extended temperature range and a watertight chassis, the AP170 can deployed in most every outdoor environment on earth. With four antennas and the ability to provide service concurrently on both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands, the AP170 provides both high speed mesh and support for 802.11n as well as legacy 802.11a, b, and g clients, through Aerohive’s industry unique and resilient controller-less architecture.

    Key Features and Benefits

    Cooperative Control
    All Aerohive access points are built upon the deep, feature rich HiveOS operating system. HiveOS is the backbone of the Aerohive Cooperative Control architecture, and allows the access points to organize into groups or “hives” that coordinate advanced features such as layer 2/layer 3 roaming, cooperative RF management, security information, and mesh networking without requiring a controller. Cooperative Control provides all the benefits of coordinated, nextgeneration Wi-Fi with lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), more reliability, more scalability, higher performance, and with a focus on truly optimizing mobility in a mobile first enterprise.

    High Performance, Secure Wi-Fi with On-Demand Provisioning
    The Aerohive AP170 is a rugged outdoor 802.11n access point with integrated features such as RADIUS, 802.1X security, Captive Web Portal, and cloud-based management. By integrating with the Aerohive Cloud Services Platform, the AP170 can be brought online simply by plugging it in. It will automatically find the HiveManager, either in Aerohive’s public cloud or on a customer premises, download complete configuration, security, and corporate policies, and instantly provide service for connected devices.

    Integrated Application Priority and Control
    By using the robust Quality of Service (QoS) and stateful firewall built into Aerohive access points, the AP170 supports optimizing user application experience, even outdoors. Aerohive access points allow an administrator to create customized user profiles based on context, such as identity of the user, device type, location, and time of day, to prioritize or block applications based on what is critical to that particular user. This user-focused approach ensures every user experience is optimized for mobility.

    Every Aerohive Networks device is backed by a limited lifetime hardware warranty. Extended product and technical support may be purchased separately and can include next day advanced replacement, 24x7 or 8x5 technical support, web and email support access, and software updates.
