  1. Aruba Instant on Switches

Aruba Instant On 1930 switches features advanced, smart-managed, fixed configuration Gigabit switches designed for small businesses that are easy-to-deploy and affordable.

Aruba Instant On 1930 switches provides these key features:

(1) Smart-managed layer 2+ Ethernet switch series ready to deploy in 8-, 24- and 48-port for non-PoE and Class 4 PoE (i.e. PoE+) models

(2) PoE to power APs and IoT devices like IP phones, surveillance cameras and door locks

(3) Two dedicated 1G SFP fiber ports on 8-port models, and four dedicated 1G/10G SFP+ fiber ports on 24-/48-port models to eliminate traffic bottlenecks across your network

(4) Security controls let you define access in each area of your network, keeping your business data safe

(5) Convenient mobile app and web-based GUI for set up, management and troubleshooting


There are 7 models in this series:

Model Description Gig Ports Uplink Ports Class 4 PoE
JL680A Aruba Instant On 1930 8G 2SFP Switch 8 2 SFP
JL681A Aruba Instant On 1930 8G Class4 PoE 2SFP 124W Switch 8 2 SFP 124W
JL682A Aruba Instant On 1930 24G 4SFP/SFP+ Switch 24 4 SFP/SFP+
JL683A Aruba Instant On 1930 24G Class4 PoE 4SFP/SFP+ 195W Switch 24 4 SFP/SFP+ 195W
JL684A Aruba Instant On 1930 24G Class4 PoE 4SFP/SFP+ 370W Switch 24 4 SFP/SFP+ 370W
JL685A Aruba Instant On 1930 48G 4SFP/SFP+ Switch 48 4 SFP/SFP+
JL686A Aruba Instant On 1930 48G Class4 PoE 4SFP/SFP+ 370W Switch 48 4 SFP/SFP+ 370W


We can see there is a feature named Class 4 PoE. What is this Class 4 PoE?

IEEE 802.3af (15.4W) is the first PoE power supply standard, which specifies the power supply standard for Ethernet and is the mainstream implementation standard for PoE applications. In order to comply with the IEEE 802.3af specification, the power consumption of the PoE on the powered device (PD) is limited to 12.95W, which is sufficient for traditional IP phones and web cameras, but with dual-band access, video phones, With the emergence of high-power applications such as PTZ video surveillance systems, the 13W power supply power obviously cannot meet the demand, which limits the application range of Ethernet cable power supply.

In order to overcome the limitations of PoE on the power budget and push it to new applications, IEEE has established a new task group to explore ways to increase the power limits of this international power supply standard. In order to evaluate the possibility of IEEE802.3at implementation technically and economically, the IEEE802.3 working group established the PoE Plus research group in November 2004. Later, in July 2005, the plan to establish the IEEE 802.3at investigation committee was approved. The new standard is called Power-over-Ethernet Plus (PoEP) IEEE 802.3at, which defines Class 4 devices with power requirements higher than 12.95W, which can extend the power level to 25W or higher.
