Application visibility and control is the next step in ensuring the network is optimized for mobility. With lots of new devices on the network, it is important to understand exactly how your valuable resources are being used – whether you are concerned about radio availability, WAN bandwidth, or simply just understanding how the network is performing.

Watch this video to see application visibility and control in action, and then let us know in comments below how this capability will help your organization:

We are going to be able to allow our teachers more access while easily controlling our guest and student network. This is a huge thing for us.

hi Luke! Thank you for your interest in HiveOS/HiveManager 6.0. 6.0r1 images are currently available for HiveManager and the new SR series switches only. 6.0r2 is scheduled for release at the end of March, and it will support all non-EOL Aerohive devices and HiveManager. If you have an immediate need, you can apply for the beta by emailing your local sales team!

We currently use a Palo Alto firewall to get application visibility and control, but will certainly be looking to see how we can augment with the new features in 6.0. It looks brilliant! Well done! :)

We currently utilize Packet Shaping at the internet edge to gain L7 visibility into what our clients are accessing, but granularity can be somewhat cumbersome and late to the game. Having this feature within our Access Layer will aid in getting more granular with specific User Profiles that we want to limit or deny services at the APP layer. It is extremely exciting to see this coming; after working with Aerohive for nearly three years I am very happy to see this come to fruition.

Kudos to the Hive Team!

With the combination of both the AP's and Aerohive switches we are excited about having true visibility inside and outside our network. Prior to this we would had to turn to expensive 3rd party tools.

Well done Aerohive!

I won't need to remove IE from our wi-fi terminals anymore. I'm anxiously awaiting this feature.

Would this feature have drawback especially on the performance and number of connected clients on the AP?
