A new no-nonsense SMB switch by Aruba

Aruba Instant On 1430 switches are unmanaged plug-and-play Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switches that provide simple, reliable, and low-cost connectivity for small offices and home offices.

Oh, the yin and yang of technology. So essential – adding connection, depth, and opportunity to our businesses and our personal lives, and allowing us to communicate in real-time, work more productively, and create new sources of revenue. Yet that blissful network connectivity experience comes at a price, as it poses daily challenges to install, configure, and maintain – a cost that many small businesses often struggle with.

To jump ahead of the competition, SMBs (Small medium businesses) need to actively engage customers with dependable Wi-Fi and keep employees and wired devices connected, often without any dedicated IT support. That’s where a configuration-free, unmanaged network switch that’s both affordable and reliable comes into play.


At Aruba, we keep a step ahead of ever-changing business needs to provide best-in-class solutions so businesses of all sizes can focus on growth and not be limited by network complexity or performance bottlenecks.

That’s why we’re introducing the Aruba Instant 1430 Switch Series – easy-to-use unmanaged switches with Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switching capabilities at an affordable price point — to help connect and share common resources like printers and access points without any complicated network configuration.


Key features of the Aruba Instant On 1430 include:

  • Fast performance: Unmanaged Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switch series ready to deploy in 5-, 8-, 16-, 24-, and 26-port models, including 8- and 16-port PoE models.
  • Plug and play: Fully automated functions with no configuration or management needed.
  • PoE for IoT: Up to 124W of Power over Ethernet (PoE) to power APs, IP Phones, and other IoT devices, eliminating device power cords and outlets.
  • Quiet deployment: All models are fan-less for silent operation in acoustically sensitive spaces.
  • Ready for home and office: 5- and 8-port compact models that are Class B certified for home office networks.
  • Peace of mind: Limited Lifetime Warranty means Aruba has your back now and in the future.


And like the rest of the Aruba Instant On switching portfolio, the 1430 comes with 24 x 7 chat support for the entire warranty period, so help is available whenever you need it.


Small offices: Quick connectivity with easy set-up is crucial for small office environments where customer access and employee collaboration are key. Configuration-free network connections of desktop computers, Wi-Fi access points, and surveillance cameras requires a wired network that doesn’t sacrifice performance for plug-and-play features. The unmanaged 1430 switches deliver fast Gigabit Ethernet speeds and plenty of PoE power at budget-friendly prices with no management or configuration required.

Home offices: Working from home means virtual conference calls, shared and space- constrained work areas, reliable Wi-Fi required in every room, and many connected devices like desktops, gaming consoles, smart TVs, and security cameras. If you find yourself performing DIY tech support, then you’re probably trying to balance performance, cost, and ease-of-use when you build your home network. The unmanaged 1430 delivers true plug-and-play, reliable Gigabit Ethernet wired connectivity that you can connect and forget. And it even comes in space-saving compact 5- and 8-port models.


Managed switches give you the control of your network, allowing you to customize and monitor configuration settings, including controls that prioritize and segment network traffic. While automation tools help simplify configuration and management, when all you need is basic Ethernet connectivity and you don’t have the time or expertise to handle installs, an unmanaged switch is the right solution. The Aruba Instant On switching portfolio includes both smart-managed and unmanaged switches, so you can choose what’s best for you and your business, without compromising enterprise-grade reliability or support.
