Administrators need only set up a single configuration for remote devices via the familiar HiveManager interface; when the BR100 branch router is plugged in, it discovers the HiveManager automatically, and configuration is pushed to it. The BR100 enables administrators to run a thousand remote office VPNs as easily as a single deployment.
In addition to 802.11n WiFi, the BR100 features up to 8 SSIDs and 16 VLANs shared across wired and wireless interfaces, which can be configured in a number of ways to handle any small office/teleworker requirements. One SSID can be dedicated for employee access using 802.1X, for example, while another is used for guest access where devices are using a pre-shared key. Four 10/100 LAN ports are also configurable to share a VLAN with a wireless SSID, as well as be protected by a Captive Web Portal.
The BR100 can be provisioned in several different ways, for maximum convenience and cost effectiveness. Organizations may choose to purchase the BR100 outright, and deploy/manage the devices as usual. Or the BR100 can be enabled via the innovative Branch on Demand. This subscription includes the BR100 and a subscription to Aerohive’s HiveManager Online, for the ultimate in flexibility.
Since most of the traffic generated at branch or remote locations is destined for the Internet, Aerohive’s patent-pending Cloud Proxy automatically diverts that traffic through a cloud-based web security service, vastly reducing bandwidth costs by eliminating the need to route branch, remote office or mobile-user traffic back to a central location for filtering.
By using device-based IPSec VPN, HiveOS Routing features running on every BR100 allows remote users to access corporate resources via authenticated devices without the hassle of installing, conﬁguring or maintaining additional VPN software. In addition, an advanced ﬂow-based stateful ﬁrewall enforces policy on a per data ﬂow basis allowing the Aerohive device to manage trafﬁc via a combination of user identity and very granular mobile device type. A user can now be granted secure access to corporate resources based on both who they are and on the type of device that they are using, providing an invaluable additional level of security regardless of the users’ location.
The BR100 includes 5 Ethernet switch ports, a single 802.11 b/g/n radio, a USB port for 3G/4G WAN backup, and a power adaptor. Since HiveManager manages the device’s identity, the security and network access policy is the same regardless of whether the clients are connecting via wireless or wired ports.

Cloud-based security services ensure that branch ofﬁce communications are “clean” without requiring that IT run additional security appliances at every branch ofﬁce or conﬁgure web proxy information on every end user’s device. Since most of the trafﬁc generated at branch or remote locations is destined for the Internet, Aerohive’s patent-pending Cloud Proxy automatically diverts that trafﬁc through a cloud-based web security service, vastly reducing bandwidth costs by eliminating the need to route branch, remote ofﬁce or mobile-user trafﬁc back to a central location for ﬁltering.
As businesses grow so do the number of branches. The BR100 runs the same HiveOS that runs on all our products, which means that as your branches grow the BR100 can leverage Aerohive’s Cooperative Control Architecture and mesh functionality to add wireless coverage to the branch locations as well. Simply install an additional HiveAP access point and the BR100 will form a wireless mesh connection with it. Within minutes your new access point will download your security polices and your secure wireless coverage will be expanded. For more, visit Our Products Page.
