Gigabit Wi-Fi announced

Aerohive Networks® today announced two new access points (APs) supporting 802.11ac Gigabit Wi-Fi. The new AP370 and AP390 products extend Aerohive’s cloud-managed mobile networking platform, enabling a simple migration to 802.11ac Gigabit Wi-Fi, whether upgrading incrementally to address existing capacity issues or installing a completely new 802.11ac network.

802.11ac is the latest radio technology for the Wi-Fi industry, offering an increase in data rates to beyond one gigabit per second. This new specification provides greater capacity, improved RF management, and overall improved performance over the current standard of 802.11n, all of which enable enterprises to support the continuing flood of new Wi-Fi devices.

The AP370 (with internal antennas) and AP390 (with external antennas) are dual-radio 802.11ac/n access points, starting at $1199 US list each and are available now.
