I am not familiar with the Aruba Instant On 1930 Series, but I am in need of a new switch. I have 4 other HPE Officeconnect 1920s 185W POE switches deployed in two locations. One is a non POE versio so I need to switch that one out. Basically there is 2 switches per location trunked together.
At one location, I have two 12 port POE+ and 12 regular ports for a total of 24 ports, 185W Switches times 2.
The exisiting location I need to fix up has only one switch with POE and the other is non POE. However, I was advised it would be easier to have both switches be the same or atleast POE so there is some redundancy is I have trouble with one switch.
There is not a lot of information about the local interface for the Aruba IO 1930 switches. They seem to have a lot of technical specs, but their management is not as intuitive as other a Layer 3 switches....which this is claiming to be L2+ insteadof Layer 3?
All Web GUI? No SSH or CLI? similar to the HPE Officeconnect 1920s
I just read a thread suggesting that the management was cloud or local, but not both? Or that Cloud management does not have the ability to backup configurations.
Thank you so much for any advice.
@Jarvar I responded to your question in another thread about this.
@Jarvar No DHCP server features,SSH or CLI as this is targeted at the SMB market. The cloud is hosted by AWS and no backing up as it is stored in the cloud. If you use the Local GUI we have a primary and secondary config for backup when doing upgrades.
Aruba Instant On Limited Lifetime Support provides 24X7 phone support for the first 90 days and chat support for the entire warranty period. Community support is included for the life of the product. You can purchase additional 3 or 5 yr support if needed.
@Jarvar take a look at this FAQ for Instant on warranty.
The 1930 only supports IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at power that can deliver up to 30W per port. IEEE 802.3bt is not supported for Class 5 and Class 6 on the 1930 switch.
Just wondering about the noise. I saw somewhere it could be 60DB since the POE versions have fans. Is the fan a smart fan that speeds up and slows down based on load? or is it running regular all the time? This is going into an office closet and would prefer to have it as quiet as a possible within reason.
@Jarvar The fans run regular all the time.
I don't know if the Data Sheets are correct but I pulled this from their PDF after posting.
"Energy-efficient coolingIncludes variable speed fans operating only at the speednecessary to maintain operating temperature to reduce excessnoise and power consumption. "
I have the JL64A sitting in a box waiting to be setup so I guess I will find out soon enough.
Probably wouldn't know but are the HPE 1920s and 1930 Aruba configuration files interchangeable? Would be pretty cool if they were.
Thanks so much for your help. I really appreciate you taking the time to respond.
