Johnson County Schools Chooses Aerohive and Dell EMC to Unify Campus Wired and Wireless Network Across the District

Aerohive
Networks™ (NYSE: HIVE), a Cloud Networking leader, today announced
that Johnson
County Schools, a public school district located in Paintsville,
Kentucky, has selected Aerohive, in partnership with Dell EMC, to
provide its new Wi-Fi network.

Prior to Aerohive’s deployment, Johnson County Schools used a legacy
controller-based solution, which was unreliable with access points
failing at an alarming rate. Since they are a 1:1 Chromebook school,
this became a huge challenge for teachers since Chromebooks are reliant
on fast and stable Wi-Fi networks, and even five to 10 minutes without
Wi-Fi access can be incredibly disruptive to the classroom environment.

A month after purchasing 350 access points, the Johnson County Schools
technology staff has already deployed 150 of them. They are using a
combination of the Aerohive AP250 and AP550. In areas with heavy
congestion, they are leveraging the Dual 5 GHz software defined radio
feature of both the AP250 and AP550 to provide more capacity without the
introduction of co-channel interference.

“It’s been an invisible installation – each access point is plug and
play,” said Mike Whitaker, data communications specialist, Johnson
County Schools. “Once it boots up, it grabs the correct configuration
from HiveManager, reboots, and then starts providing Wi-Fi for teachers
and students. This simple installation process has allowed us to begin
installing during the school year instead of waiting for summer break.
For an enterprise-grade wireless solution, Aerohive has been incredibly
easy to configure and deploy.”

One of the best things that Johnson County Schools saw with the Aerohive
deployment was that teachers and students didn’t know anything was
happening during the process. The installation process was fast, and it
integrated seamlessly into their environment. Teachers across the
district have noticed an immediate benefit, as they no longer have to
worry about Wi-Fi being unavailable and disrupted during the school day.

Before having Aerohive, Johnson County Schools also ran into problems
with their controller, which caused major problems across the entire
district. With a distributed control and cloud managed architecture,
Aerohive access points do not require a legacy controller to provide
Wi-Fi access. In fact, the technology staff at the district could even
upgrade its HiveManager software during business hours without impacting
wireless access of teachers and students.
