Pacific Northwest Burger Chain 'Beefs' up Customer Experience with Aerohive's Secure and Robust Retail Networking Solution
SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
leader in controller-less Wi-Fi and cloud-managed mobile networking for
the enterprise market, today announced that Burgerville,
a Pacific Northwest quick service restaurant company, has implemented
Aerohive's wireless LAN networking solution to offer secure and robust
wireless access across its store locations and become fully PCI (News - Alert)
compliant in restaurant operations.
Established in 1961, Burgerville is a quick-service restaurant company
with 39 locations throughout Oregon and Washington, and a workforce of
over 1,500 employees.
Burgerville required an upgrade from its consumer-class wireless
product at its headquarters and restaurant locations. Apart from poor
connectivity and complaints from guests, Burgerville needed a solution
that would have enterprise-grade security features for PCI compliance,
as well as centralized management capabilities for its VPN.
Initially, Burgerville's legacy system was approaching its end of
life, but a network upgrade using another controller-based system
would mean increased cost and complexity with greater risk of a single
point of failure.
PCI compliancy was the main driver for Burgerville's network
infrastructure. In addition, Burgerville sought a new POS solution
that enabled a Wi-Fi solution that was robust and resilient enough to
support the POS application and tablet devices. Aerohive (News - Alert) offered
active directory authentication, a key requirement for PCI compliance,
which allows corporate employees at restaurant locations to
authenticate back to corporate, a capability Burgerville did not have

Online to manage all Aerohive branch routers and access points,

cloud, as well as exploit a variety of features available from
Aerohive. Burgerville also implemented Aerohive's Branch
on Demand solution, combining branch router platforms, HiveOS®
router capabilities, cloud-enabled VPN gateway, and the Aerohive
Cloud Services Platform.
The IT team at Burgerville worked closely with PavelComm
to deploy Aerohive's technology throughout the restaurant chain.
PavelComm is a technology company and authorized Aerohive reseller
primarily focused on the Oregon and Washington markets. A close
partner with Aerohive, PavelComm played a significant role in the
Since deploying Aerohive's access points and HiveManager Online,
Burgerville is now able to prioritize traffic and devices, as well as
allow priority on the network for its employees and applications.
