Hi

I have a doubt... Does Aerohive APs supports or are compatible with zigbee protocol?

Thank you

Thank you Nick!

If I understood... Somehow WiFi and Zigbee can coexist

But Aerohive can do it?

Mike, 
FYI, I have recently been presented information regarding a lighting system that is being deployed in one of our warehousing facilities in California that will be running ZigBee/802.15.4. I personally don't see any need for AH to support the protocol at this point, but do be aware there are some enterprise deployments.

Best,
BJ

Thanks BJ! I would be quite interested in hearing more about that if you have any info. Why Zigbee in particular? Was it a desire to tie into motion sensors, to provide centralized management and monitoring of light status, something else?

I can't comment on operations' decision to install this particular lighting solution, but I'd be happy to email the documentation they forwarded to me if you can provide an address.

I was just reading this after a discussion with an engineering firm regarding the retrofit of a complete HVAC system for our middle school.  Trane, and others, are using wireless sensors and controllers that operate in the 2.4ghz spectrum using the ZigBee protocol.  Having just deployed 45 AP 230s in the building I was naturally concerned about the potential for interference.  Nick's reference above pretty well sums up why I'm not concerned.   It's more a matter of coexisting that supporting.
