New York-based Charmer Sunbelt Group (CSG) distributes wine and spirits to retail establishments in 15 states and the District of Columbia, employing over 5000 people and generating more than $4.5 billion in annual sales. CSG's Network Department, was concerned, however, that the legacy WLAN infrastructure would not be able to keep up with the company's future needs. CSG has four sites fully deployed with 35 HiveAPs in place. Future plans call for the deployment of another 75 HiveAPs. One Aerohive feature that CSG's Network Department particularly liked was the wireless mesh capability. The feature can establish a wireless mesh connection between neighboring HiveAPs using the second radio in the HiveAP. This is typically used to reroute network traffic around failures in the wired network.
