Aerohive has announced an update to its wireless LAN management system, which it claims will provide IT staff with a simpler way of monitoring Wi-Fi network performance.
The company has added a Client Health Score tool to its HiveManager Network Management System to allow staff to monitor the health of devices on a Wi-Fi network using a simple red, yellow or green system.
"A lot of IT staff aren't fully trained in complex Wi-Fi data readings, so the Client Health product gives them the chance to more easily detect issues occurring on the network," said Aerohive director of product management Matthew Gast.
"More information can still be achieved with a drill-down of any specific problems but, for more immediate problem solving, this simplified display will meet a lot of the needs of IT staff."
Client Health Score is part of a wider expansion of Aerohive's Service Level Assurance (SLA) tool that offers access to real-time monitoring of every Wi-Fi client in the network on a single dashboard.
"The improvements to the SLA as part of an upgrade to the HiveOS provide IT staff with more abilities for the monitoring of problems occurring on the networks, and for more proactive troubleshooting," Gast said.
The HiveManager Network Management System has also been upgraded to HiveManager 3.5 and now offers historical reporting to let staff resolve problems by looking at past incidents.
Additionally, Aerohive has launched TeacherView, a dedicated portal for the education industry to help teachers resolve network issues more quickly and efficiently, manage student internet access and share web sites with pupils.
The HiveOS and HiveManager 3.5 upgrades will be available for free to all Aerohive customers, while prices for TeacherView have yet to be announced.
