I love my Aerohives. I recently distributed a load up at Oxford University following an extended investigation into options available and having gone with Aerohive, feel so good with the result. So much so that I recently rolled out 3 managed offices, a large logistics company and a document scanning/processing company all with Aerohive APs and have had no issues at all. Fantastic products, great prices, great support and some of the cleverest tricks out of the box. One business centre has 26 AP320s with about 40 clients over about 45 VLANs, all using user profiles/groups without fault. When talking to others about my favourite kit, its always my Watchguard firewall and my Aerohive APs. No other WAP comes close!

That is awesome. I love the 45 VLANs, that is one crazy policy set.

Awesome is right. My firewall provides the DHCP and DNS to each VLAN across about 35 switches and the probably 50-70% of our clients use the wireless and we expect take up to move towards 80+% over the next 3-5 years. I use the user groups to drop users onto VLAN based on password supplied. Only broadcast one SSID for max available bandwidth and you have a wireless solution the pervades the entire site and gives users a secure connection back onto their VLAN network from anywhere. I have users working in the fields and gardens, far from their offices in the lovely sun. It's properly cool and makes me so proud of what we offer. Check out the location - http://www.wrestparkenterprise.co.uk - beautiful and technologically advanced! :-)
