Due to a reporting error, the story, "Aerohive pushes branch networks to cloud," misidentified the price of a service and the implementation of a product. The Branch on Demand service starts at US$99 per year and the Cloud VPN Gateway is a software platform.
The story has been corrected on the wire. The first and eighth paragraphs now read as follows:
Aerohive Networks intends to put branch offices' networks in the cloud for a annual fee starting at US$99.
Aerohive is introducing two branch routers to use with the service. The BR100 will have five Fast Ethernet ports, IEEE 802.11n Wi-Fi on the 2.4GHz band and a USB port for adding 3G or 4G wireless backhaul. The BR200 will have five Gigabit Ethernet ports, dual-band Wi-Fi, USB and other added features. The BR100 will be available in the middle of next month and can be used with the $99-per-year service. The BR200 will ship in early 2012, according to Aerohive.
The fifth paragraph now reads as follows:
Customers can also add cloud-based security services, specifically Websense and Barracuda, to strengthen their branch network capabilities, Vincent said. They also can deploy Aerohive's Cloud VPN Gateway, a VMware-compliant application, to provide VPN (virtual private network) connections at branches. The gateway is available for $450 per year.
