We are excited to announce that we have launched our new Hive Community! HiveNation will remain as an archive, but all new posts, discussions, and articles will be created on Hive Community. You can visit our new community at thehivecommunity.aerohive.com
The AP230 has an integrated WIPS solution but if WIPS is a major requirement for your deployment then you need to look at the integrated WIPs on a feature by feature basis to ensure it covers your needs.
I agree with what Crowdie has shared on this and depending on your needs, a full IPS/IDS solution may be a better fit IMO. As wifi is primarily a layer 2 solution, full blown packet inspection is better suited with dedicated hardware. Having said that, the Aerohive solution does provide options for WIPS.
