Aerohive Networks has shipped its 500,000th controller-less, enterprise-class access point and has added 4,000 new end customers to date in 2013 across the distributed enterprise, healthcare, retail and education markets.

In 2006, Aerohive developed a controller-less wireless LAN architecture called Cooperative Control, enabling secure, scalable, high-performance, and mission-critical wireless networking in a manageable and cost effective way to industries such as healthcare, retail, education and in particular to highly distributed enterprises.
