Aerohive Networks™ announced it has executed a global partnership agreement with Juniper Networks to sell Aerohive’s industry-leading Cloud Managed Wi-Fi solution, including its new family of 802.11ax access points and its HiveManager® Cloud Management platform. Additionally, Juniper Sky Enterprise, Juniper’s cloud network management solution, has already been integrated at the time of this announcement with Aerohive’s HiveManager using APIs to simplify management of the joint solution.
“We are proud to expand our strategic partnership with Juniper that enables Juniper to sell Aerohive technology through their global sales force and channel partners,” said David Flynn, chief executive officer, Aerohive Networks. “This partnership will be a force multiplier for Aerohive that significantly extends our ability to showcase our public, private and portable cloud management architecture and industry leading access points to Juniper’s customers.”
"Many enterprise customers are asking for a single solution to help simplify their access network installation, configuration and operation,” said Michael Bushong, vice president of cloud and enterprise, Juniper Networks. “Juniper’s expanded relationship with Aerohive provides our customers an integrated wired and wireless solution that delivers a simple, flexible, cloud-managed solution.”
“Juniper customers include some of the world’s largest and most influential enterprises, that span all strategic verticals,” said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst, ZK Research. “This alliance will create a disturbance in the force by introducing world-class switching from Juniper and world-class Wi-Fi from Aerohive to these large and influential customers through Juniper’s global sales force and channel.”
“As we looked to update our district’s network infrastructure, it was critical for us to invest in technologies that operate independently, yet still connect seamlessly with one another,” said Brian Currin, IT operations manager, Boise City Independent School District. “We’re excited to see a partnership between Juniper Networks and Aerohive, as our school district already uses products from both vendors and has empowered us with the freedom and flexibility to implement a customized infrastructure and ultimately deliver a heightened learning experience to our teachers and students.”
