  • Education
    Business-Grade Wi-Fi for K-12 and Higher Education

    Schools use 802.11n wireless LANs as a primary learning venue that avoids the excessive cost of cabling student devices. Wireless communications also boosts parent-teacher communication and campus-wide school safety while easily addressing temporary classroom connectivity requirements. The distributed, scalable Aerohive architecture is optimized for all these applications. It allows simple centralized management and delivers unique classroom monitoring capabilities for much-needed classroom control.

    Features and Benefits

    Primary and secondary schools now require "business-grade" wireless networks – those that are managed centrally and offer sophisticated features for scaling the network throughout school buildings, campuses, and districts. Aerohive cost-effectively delivers these features – and more – so schools can take networking to the next level.
