Ready To Read About Our Secret Sauce?

Learn About: Security

We are in the age of the Internet of Things (IOT), which means that businesses like yours are more vulnerable. Stealthy hackers can strategically hack into your internet connected french fry cooker or your air conditioning system to get into your network and then grab top-secret customer information such as their credit card information or social security numbers- the latter example is exactly what happened to a big-box retailer who has a big red target as a logo a few months ago. Want to eliminate the concern of this happening in your own business? BusyBee WiFi will leverage Aerohive’s private PPSK technology to give each device it’s own credentials to eliminate this concern. Uniquely identify and secure users and devices without the drawbacks and complexity of RADIUS solutions, or the weaknesses of a traditional shared PSK. Aerohive’s ‘Private’ PSK technology gives you the ability to easily onboard and identify devices, without security or complexity concerns.

We provide a simple yet powerful authentication method:

  • Secure access for IoT devices that don’t support 802.1X
  • Simplified guest access workflows and onboarding applications
  • 1000’s of unique Pre-Shared Keys per user or device within a single SSID
  • Customizable security policies per PPSK group including VLAN assignment, time of day access, bandwidth allocation and firewall settings
  • Revoke a single key without effecting the rest of the network
  • Self-registration against AD for personal BYOD
  • Time-based key validity for guest access

Provides IT with visibility and granular control over mobile applications:

  • Prioritize and control of specific applications based on user and device identity
  • DPI firewall built-in to all Aerohive Access Points to restrict usage of social, peer-to-peer, streaming and other troublesome applications
  • QoS classification engine to enhance performance of mission critical applications such as voice and video
  • Monitor application usage per user, device, SSID, and location in HiveManager’s powerful contextualized dashboards

With a range of protection services built into every access point, you can safely unleash mobility throughout your organization:

  • Fully stateful layer 2-7 firewall policies personalized to specific user groups or devices
  • On-board RADIUS Server, CA and AD integration to leverage existing user database
  • OS/Device classification engine enables granular policy enforcement
  • Scheduled SSID availability
  • WIPS policy for rogue detection and mitigation
  • TPM chips inside every AP encrypt precious data from physical theft
  • GRE and VPN tunneling to DMZ or remote locations
  • Comprehensive monitoring and reporting

and there’s more, but you are probably tired of reading right now, so we’ll tell you the rest in person!

Learn About: Collecting Insightful Customer Data

Make sure that your Chief Marketing Officer is sitting down before your share with them what BusyBee WiFi and Aerohive Networks can do for them. They may just fall over from excitement. Oh, and for the Chief Technology Officers out there- we want to let you in on a big secret: we know that your mouth is probably already watering after you read about our tech. That’s perfectly natural. No need to go see a doctor. If you don’t have the tech budget to get this brilliant solution, then tell your CMO the following and we’re certain that they’ll pick up the tab.

Imagine a world where you could effortlessly collect and monitor real-time data that provide you with key insight into the behaviors of your customers… No, not their behavior on your shop’s website, but their behavior in your physical store, office, coffee shop, bar, club, amusement park, or showroom. What if we were tell you that we could tell you how many people walked into your store, how frequently they return, where they walk around in the store, how long they look at certain displays, how many people walk past the front and don’t come in, and how many people are returning customers? What if we were to tell you where people are in real time in your store so that you could send sales associates to go help them? What if we were to tell you that they don’t even have to connect to your WiFi for you to get all of this data? And what if we were to tell you that if they did happen to connect to your network, you could collect key information for marketing to them in the future and open a direct line of communication with them through which you could reward them with loyalty points, give them coupons, or send them a picture of a smiley face when they wake up in the morning (okay, we don’t actually recommend the smiley face each morning- that might be a little weird). Okay, well we can do all of that and more. The future is here. Jump on the rocket ship with BusyBee WiFi. Our first destination is equipping you with key consumer insight so that you can make the informed decisions that will increase your profits.

Learn About: The Ability To Scale

Aerohive’s Cloud Services Platform enables scalable, secure, and reliable network applications by taking advantage of the cloud while also preserving an unmatched level of flexibility often associated with on-premises solutions. Customers can still decide what to run, when to upgrade and comply with network operation policies.

Adding new offices or expanding existing offices and want to use the same WiFi network policies? No problem. It’s as simple as contacting BusyBee WiFi, getting the additional hardware, and some setup and deployment from BusyBee WiFi.

The WiFi and Network Construction or Improvement Process

1. Assessment

Every space is unique, so it is essential that we understand the space we are working with so that we can deploy the optimal WiFi solution there. WiFi access point placement is key, so we’ll come to your place of business and conduct a hands-on site survey. During this survey we’ll also discuss with you how you want your WiFi policies to be built (if you want to have a special guest network, create device specific credentials, and much more cool stuff that is too exciting to write about and better experienced in person). From that, we’ll prepare and share with you a heat map that will guide access point choice and placement. We’ll also discuss any other hardware that you may need to ensure you have the best network possible, such as switches and network security appliances.

2. Implementation

Once you approve the plan created in the assessment phase, it’s time to bring it into reality! Once your hardware order through us arrives, we’ll bring it to your office, run the necessary cabling, and mount the WiFi access points (typically on ceilings or walls). We’ll also install any other hardware in your package such as switches or network security appliances. BusyBee WiFi will then build your custom network and WiFi policies as discussed during the on-site meeting in the assessment phase and deploy them to the newly installed WiFi access points and other network appliances, such as network security appliances and switches. After a few tests to ensure everything is working well, we’ll train your team how to use the new WiFi in your workplace and send them their own login credentials.

3. Maintenance

At BusyBee WiFi, we manage your WiFi network for you so you don’t have the headache! Our management options include a basic and advanced plan. With the advanced plan, we’ll add your new employees and other users whenever you need, keep the hardware up to date, monitor the network, maintain it with the utmost care, and more!

Our support team is always just a phone call away! We’re here for you.

One of the key differences in our basic and advanced plan is the software and it’s capabilities that is used to manage your WiFi access points. Our basic plan leverages Aerohive’s Connect cloud based management solution and our more sophisticated advanced plan leverages the Aerohive Select cloud based management solution. You can read about the differences in software in this overview. The great thing is that you can upgrade from our basic to advanced service plan at anytime without the need to purchase any additional hardware!
