Aerohive Launches HiveOS 5.1 and HiveManager 5.1
Aerohive Networks — a company that delivers enterprise WiFi solutions — recently released the latest upgrades to its HiveOS 5.1 and HiveManager 5.1 systems.

Aerohive is also delivering two new 802.11n access points (APs): AP121 and AP141.
As part of a free upgrade to all customers with a valid support contract, Aerohive’s HiveOS 5.1 now provides end users with Bonjour Gateway and JAMF Software Mobile Device Management (MDM) integration.

Both HiveManager and HiveManager Online 5.1 have been upgraded to version 5.1. This upgraded version includes enhanced reporting functionality, secure auto-configuration for branch routers and topology folders.
