Aerohive Networks (NYSE: HIVE) announced that it will be presenting at the Interop Las Vegas conference, geared for IT professionals and technology visionaries, taking place Apr. 27 – May 1.

At this year's Interop, Matthew Gast, director, technology strategy at Aerohive Networks, and Abby Strong, director of product marketing, will be speaking on the role of wireless networks in supporting the Internet of Things (IoT) deployments in their jointly presented session entilted, Building the Wi-Fi On-Ramp to the Internet of Things.

The talk's premise is stated as thus: "The current evolution of Wi-Fi is driven by the rising need to enable machine-to-machine communication. These new devices place completely different demands on the network, and will vastly outnumber users as they enable building automation, physical security, and many forms of wearable technology. To cope with all these new devices, IT departments need to build wireless networks supporting higher density and more differentiated security. This speaking session will discuss current and future technology developments to build robust networks that support IoT deployments."

The presentation will be given on Wednesday, Apr. 29, from 3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. PT, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center's Lagoon K ballroom.
