Lots of interest has been circulating around Aerohive’s Bonjour Gateway, and how it improves mobility for Apple users – the community largely responsible for the BYOD (bring your own device) trend.
Bonjour Gateway solves the BYOD problem of connecting these iOS devices by managing and controlling Apple service availability (such as AirPrint, AirPlay, file sharing, collaboration applications, etc.) across an entire enterprise-class network.
In this article, TechTarget editor Gina Narcisi does a nice job explaining the BYOD issues solved by Aerohive’s Bonjour Gateway. In doing so, she also profiles an Aerohive customer - the North Carolina-based Rowan-Salisbury School System – which uses an Aerohive controller-less WLAN supporting 35 schools and 20,000 students, and which recently started using Aerohive’s Bonjour Gateway as well.
According to Phil Hardin, Executive Director for Technology at Rowan-Salisbury School System (pictured here at this year’s ISTE conference), the school uses separate VLANs for students and teachers, and that security separation makes it difficult to fully use AirPlay and AirPrint in the classroom. Bonjour Gateway integrates these technologies into the school's learning environment.
