    I've used Aerohive in a couple of deployments, and cannot sing it's praises enough!

    They work out about 500 per AP if I remember right - and LAN3 did one of the installs, but I did the other myself, and I'm certified.

    The management is just great, incredibly powerful too. Seriously worth every penny!

    500 per AP is bang on what we thought it would be. I just hope the quote that comes back is affordable. We wont be doing anything really fancy, just a couple of SSID's, Bonjour Services for Ipad to use with Airplay Server and attach VLAN's to different SSID's.

    I like Aerohive, but my administration is making me get rid of them because of the annual license fees.

    Good deal for any of you guys who need some cheap AP320 units:

    I don't understand why Aerohive is pitched as controller-less? Hive Manager is surely just a virtual controller - much like lots of other options in the market? Seems like their whole pitch is based on a marketing spin?

    the hive manager is only required to configure the access point it is not required for the operation so its is a configuration device.

    the ap's don't talk to the hive manager to authenticate user or any other information.

    traditional controller based ap's wouldn't function without the controller.

    there are other solutions out there that do the same with regards to authentication and that continue to function if the controller goes down. thats why I say I'm not sure why Aerohive focus on it so much? Virtual controllers from other manufacturers aren't exactly pricey anymore either so I'm not sure what the value of Aerohive is? How much is the Hive Manager roughly??
