Aerohive is pleased to announce the availability of HiveManager and HiveOS version 6.1r2.

HiveManager version 6.1r2 takes network management (both cloud-based and appliance-based) to another level with a refreshed look and feel and multiple usability improvements. Application Visibility and Control gains more functionality with new widgets of top applications automatically discovered out of the box, the added support of Microsoft Lync, and the ability for you to define custom applications. HiveOS introduces lengthier RADIUS user names, simultaneous RADIUS and ID Manager proxy support, various bug fixes, and many other enhancements requested by our customers.

  • Integrated device management by including device inventory and administration operations (Add/Remove/Modify) within HiveManager

  • Dashboard UI improvements

  • Better capturing and visibility of captive web portal information


AVC (Application and Visibility Control) Improvements
