HiveAP 330 802.11n Wireless Access Point

The Aerohive HiveAP 330 is an enterprise-grade, two radio (3×3) three stream MIMO 802.11n solution, capable of 450Mbps data rates.

Aerohive Networks HiveAP 330 series access point (AP) is a high performing and highly reliable 802.11n access point. The Hive AP 330 provides high performance dual concurrent (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n 3×3 with three spatial stream MIMO (450 Mbps per radio) as well as dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet port service.

The HiveAP 330 is an enterprise-grade, (3×3) MIMO solution, designed for high bandwidth demand wireless enterprise environments. With multiple radios and the ability to provide service concurrently on both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands, the HiveAP 330 can provide up to an aggregate data rate of 450 Mbps. The HiveAP 330 provides both mesh and support for legacy 802.11a, b, and g clients, through Aerohive’s industry unique and resilient controller-less architecture.
