Next Generation Access Network Architecture
Yesterday's de facto standard architecture is commonly referred to as the, “controller-based” architecture. It involves one or more controllers and controller-based (lightweight, thin) access points (APs). Aerohive re-introduced what every router and switch network already used as a defacto standard – fully distributed control plane leveraging free protocols with a centralized network management system, eliminating the need for a centralized Controller. The controller-less solution.
