Aerohive delivers SD-WAN, SD-LAN user & app traffic management

Aerohive Networks® (NYSE: HIVE), a Cloud Networking leader, has announced an industry first for unified SD-WAN & SD-LAN access networks, adding end-to-end granular user and application policy enforcement, and new WAN and VPN link-performance analytics for greater insight into the overall operations of distributed networks, the company said.

Building on its link-state monitoring and dynamic-path selection capabilities, Aerohive is now able to further optimize traffic forwarding decisions under a single unified policy for both the LAN and WAN infrastructure, based on a combination of user and application factors.

From a single workflow, administrators can create granular rules that look deeper into the context of traffic flowing in and out of a remote site from access points to routers and beyond.

Aerohive´s SD-WAN solution addresses pitfalls of legacy WAN products by providing a software-defined solution that adapts to changing environments, reduces the dependency on expensive MPLS connections, and addresses the most common scalability concerns for WAN and VPN deployments.

When combined with Aerohive´s SD-LAN access points and switches, administrators with large distributed access networks can radically simplify deployment, management, and ongoing support from a single, unified console.

Aerohive enables customers to simply and confidently connect to the information, applications, and insights they need to thrive.
