We just released an upgrade to our Branch On Demand solution - the BR200 Branch Router – which is ideal for organizations such as retail stores, long-term healthcare facilities, and mid-market and commercial enterprises with highly dispersed remote locations with little to no IT support.
Here to give us a quick-but-fun demonstration of this new product is Abby Strong, Aerohive Senior Product Marketing Manager. In this demo, Abby gives viewers a glimpse of just how slick our new branch router is: Her Aerohive AP330 provides Wi-Fi access within her remote office, and the BR200 Branch Router powers her AP330, enables her to access the corporate network without a VPN client, powers her phone and connects it to the corporate PBX, and allows her to watch live-streaming Netflix – all at the same time, and without requiring a wired WAN connection!
Not familiar with Aerohive’s Branch on Demand solution? By combining secure routing, gigabit Ethernet, power-over-Ethernet, and enterprise-class Wi-Fi in a single platform, the BR200 series provides essential networking and management capabilities to connect, secure, and manage branch offices. The BR200 series easily combines with Aerohive Access Points (APs) to create a scalable and easily-managed branch office solution. Aerohive’s Branch on Demand solution is fully user and context aware, applying corporate-defined security and privacy policies to any device, both wired and wireless, based on the user’s identity, device type, application in use, and location of the user.
The disruptive innovation that Branch on Demand brings to the market is the ability to deploy remote locations rapidly in a repeatable, cookie-cutter fashion while leveraging Aerohive’s Cloud Services Platform. This allows the central IT manager to “set-it and forget-it” while the branch devices are shipped directly to site and able to automagically download their full configuration and security policy from the cloud.
Adding the BR200 to this solution allows not just micro-branch networks and teleworkers to rapidly come online but larger branches, and even retail outlets with security and privacy requirements, can be deployed with the fastest time-to-revenue in the industry!
