We’ve been sharing a lot of information about why we’re really excited about HiveManager Shortcuts with Amazon Alexa. While we don’t think IT Managers are going to replace 100 percent of browser-based management with voice, we do think it can be a great addition to help simplify a number of tasks.
Let’s watch a video to see some of the ways HiveManager Shortcuts with Amazon Alexa can simplify a project for IT departments.
Install and Onboard Network Devices Effortlessly
One of the aspects of IT management that HiveManager Shortcuts with Amazon Alexa integration simplifies is onboarding of new access points. Instead of manually typing in serial numbers of new access points, you can use an Alexa-enabled device to add it verbally. It’s quick and easy to add an access point to your HiveManager account, plug it up, and move on to the next one. You can even apply network policies with HiveManager Shortcuts!
Get Comparative Analytics
Another useful way to leverage HiveManager Shortcuts with Amazon Alexa is with real-time access to comparative analytics. As you are working in the office, you can ask Alexa how your network is operating compared to similar network types. Instead of hoping your users are having a great experience, you’ll know they are.
Comparative Analytics leverages big data technology and Aerohive’s cloud networking platform to compare network performance metrics against the average, anonymized metrics of other Aerohive Wi-Fi deployments. With that, you can recognize and address network performance issues proactively, before they become noticeable for the employees and users on the network. This feature enables IT departments to keep their networks running at peak performance, and keeps users satisfied – a win-win for everyone!
