Building Secure Wireless LAN
By Aerohive | 16/6/2011
Security of a wireless network still ranks as one of the largest concerns of IT professionals planning to roll out an enterprise wireless LAN. Many people erroneously believe that a wireless LAN is inherently insecure. This is largely due to security flaws in early Wi-Fi protocols like WEP (Wired Equivalency Protocol), more recent vulnerabilities found in TKIP and lack of awareness as to how to deploy a secure WLAN. This whitepaper will help the wireless network administrator or security manager to understand the security capabilities in a modern Wi-Fi solution, where they should be used and how the WLAN integrates with other security devices in the network.

While all Wi-Fi vendors understand the need for and are taking steps in the directions of a fully-distributed architecture, crossing the bridge from controller-based to controller-less takes a significant amount of time and effort because all system features and the user interface must be re-architected for a fully-distributed platform. We invite you to take the road less traveled: controller-less. Read on.

The Economics of Cooperative Control - Protocols are Free
By Aerohive | 16/6/2011
Today's de facto standard architecture is commonly referred to as the, “controller-based” architecture, sometimes referred to as the “split MAC” architecture. It involves one or more controllers and controller-based (lightweight, thin) APs. The controller-based architecture was created to solve manageability, mobility (as opposed to portability), control-plane inadequacies, and high operational expenditure (OPEX) problems that were prevalent in autonomous (fat, thick, standalone) AP implementations. Find out how to eliminate the need to redesign your network in order to introduce a controller-based overlay infrastructure. That’s one less thing to manage, and one less thing to pay for.
