As school-issued smart devices and other technologies are more frequently used in today’s learning programs, and students are encouraged to bring their own devices into the classroom, educational institutions need high capacity, pervasive wireless coverage provided by 802.11ac, the latest and fastest standard in Wi-Fi. However, IT departments are unwilling to deploy 802.11ac due to cost limitations, new power requirements and limited time and resources necessary to re-architect wireless infrastructures. Enter Aerohive, a leader in controller-less Wi-Fi and cloud-managed mobile networking. Aerohive’s AP230 access point is a low-cost and high-performance access point for 802.11ac and 802.11n networks with enterprise features in an economical package. By combining the latest in 3×3, three-stream 802.11ac Gigabit Wi-Fi technology and advanced security and control, the AP230 allows educational institutions to deploy 802.11ac into every part of the network infrastructure. The AP230 delivers full functionality with existing PoE infrastructure, allowing smooth integration with educational institutions’ networks, reducing cost and deployment complexity by removing requirements to purchase or upgrade backend network devices or controllers, and manages applications on every user’s device.
