New Members to the Family - Instant On 1830 Switch Series  
Yes, we have just launched another switching series to Instant On family to make sure you always have right-size feature option for your small business network needs and budget.
The new Instant On 1830 Switch Series includes six entry-level Layer 2 switches in various port and PoE configurations for flexible network extension and PoE applications. Same as other Instant On smart-managed switches, not only can be managed by local web GUI, the 1830 models can be easily set up using Instant On management mobile app and cloud-based web portal for remote access at anywhere anytime.

In case you missed the news, the Instant On 1830 switches have been released and now are available to order. Here is the announcement that can help you to catch up.
User Experience Improvements 
At Instant On, we design our solution with customers in mind. So along with the new product introduction, we thought it would be a good time to put additional efforts and make the product experience even better.
Enhanced cloud-managed stacking topology
In 2.4.0 release, we introduced cloud-managed stacking along with the Instant On 1960 Switch introduction. In this release, we’ve added the view stack topology option. Once enabled, the stack in the network expands to a detailed topology view, where you can easily identify all stacking links and members, stacking topology (i.e. ring or chain), and other connections into the stack.

Client Page Enhancements
If you have not checked out this little wrench button on the top right corner of the client list table, you may be missing some useful info that can be quite handy at times. By clicking on the wrench icon, you can adjust the related data you’d like to see for each client, which changes the columns in the client list table. At this release, we are adding Device and Interface to the list. The device column shows the Instant On device that the client connects to. By selecting interface, you can check the connected port for a wired client or the band (either 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz) for a wireless client.


Visual software upgrade process
In the new release, we’ve broken down the software upgrade process and included additional visual bars for each step to keep you informed on what’s happening behind the scene when device is being upgraded.

You can also see the upgrade process for each device on the inventory list.

More Port Icons

It’s always better to learn connected port info visually. And we get that! We added more port icons to indicate connect devices, key PoE status, and possible fault scenarios, which you can easily have a quick glance at the front panel image.

Instant On 2.5.0 release is live! Now available on Android, iOS, and Instant On cloud-based web portal.
