The Aerohive Networks AP121 is a cost-effective, enterprise-grade (2×2) MIMO solution, ideal for education, healthcare and distributed enterprise environments.
AEROHIVE NETWORKS AP121 access points provide 2×2:2 802.11n as well as optimized RF
performance and enhanced receive sensitivity to provide a ground-breaking user experience for
networks supporting multiple types of clients, including consumer-grade and bring-your-own
The Aerohive AP121 is a cost-effective, enterprise-grade 2×2 MIMO solution, which is ideal for
education, healthcare, and distributed enterprise environments. With two radios, concurrent
2.4Ghz and 5Ghz access, and security scanning across both bands, the AP121 provides top
performance and security at an entry-level price point.
The AP121 also provides both automatic mesh redundancy and support for 802.11a, b, g and n
clients, through Aerohive’s industry unique and resilient Cooperative Control Architecture.
The Aerohive AP121 shares mounting kits and power supplies with the Aerohive AP330 and
AP350, making sparing, re-ordering, stocking, and inventory management seamless.
Key Features and Benefits
All Aerohive access points are built upon the deep, feature rich HiveOS operating system.
HiveOS is the backbone of the Aerohive Cooperative Control architecture, and allows the access
points to organize into groups or “hives” that coordinate advanced features such as layer 2/
layer 3 roaming, cooperative RF management, security information, and mesh networking
without requiring a controller. Cooperative Control provides all the benefits of coordinated, next-
generation Wi-Fi with lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), more reliability, more scalability,
higher performance, and with a focus on truly optimizing mobility in a mobile first enterprise.
High Performance, Secure Wi-Fi with On-Demand Provisioning
The Aerohive AP121 is a 2×2 802.11n access point with integrated features such as RADIUS,
802.1X security, Captive Web Portal, and cloud-based management. By integrating with the
Aerohive Cloud Services Platform, the AP121 can be brought online simply by plugging it in.
It will automatically find the HiveManager, either in Aerohive’s public cloud or on a customer
premises, download complete configuration, security, and corporate policies, and instantly
provide service for connected devices.
Integrated Application Priority and Control
By using the robust Quality of Service (QoS) and stateful firewall built into Aerohive access
points, the AP121 supports optimizing user application experience on the network. Aerohive
access points allow an administrator to create customized user profiles based on context, such
as identity of the user, device type, location, and time of day, to prioritize or block applications
based on what is critical to that particular user. This user-focused approach ensures every user
experience is optimized for mobility.
