  • PoE and PoE+ allocations support multiple methods (automatic, IEEE 802.3at dynamic, LLDP-MED fine grain, IEEE 802.3af device class, or user-specified) to allocate and manage PoE and PoE+ power for more efficient energy savings
  • Local MAC Authentication assigns attributes such as VLAN and QoS using locally configured profile that can be a list of MAC prefixes

Resiliency and high availability

  • IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree provides high link availability by allowing multiple spanning trees; provides legacy support for IEEE 802.1d and IEEE 802.1w
  • IEEE 802.3ad link-aggregation-control protocol (LACP) and port trunking support up to 26 static, dynamic, or distributed trunks with each trunk having up to eight links (ports) per static trunk
  • SmartLink provides easy-to-configure link redundancy of active and standby links

Simplified Configuration and Management

  • SNMPv1, v2, and v3 provide complete support of SNMP; support of industry-standard Management Information Base (MIB) plus private extensions; SNMPv3 supports increased security using encryption
  • Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) simplifies installation of the switch using Aruba Activate or a DHCP-based process with AirWave Network Management
  • Flexible management with same hardware – Supports both cloud-based Central and on-premise AirWave without ripping and replacing switching infrastructure

  • Multiple configuration files allow multiple configuration files to be stored to a flash image
  • Software updates free downloads from the Web
  • RMON, XRMON, and sFlow® provide advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events
  • Troubleshooting ingress and egress port monitoring enable more efficient problem solving
  • Unidirectional link detection (UDLD) monitors the link between two switches and blocks the ports on both ends of the link if the link goes down at any point between the two devices

Layer 2 switching

  • VLAN support and tagging supports IEEE 802.1Q (4,094 VLAN IDs) and 512 VLANs simultaneously
  • Jumbo packet support improves the performance of large data transfers; supports frame size of up to 9,220 bytes
  • IEEE 802.1v protocol VLANs isolate select non-IPv4 protocols automatically into their own VLANs
