The Aruba 2930F is one of their most popular models, a superior all-around switch that's perfect for deployment in school campuses, office complexes, or even high-tech SMBs in need of serious networking power to support their technology dreams. No matter the usage case, the 2930F is surprisingly affordable and easy for users of all skill levels to deploy.
This Layer 3 access switch features four 10-Gigabit SFP+ uplinks, making it perfect for growing networks. These ports also support up to 740W of PoE+ power for downstream devices like 802.11ac Wave 2 WiFi APs. It also features robust QoS features and prioritization for downstream Unified Communications devices, rip and access OSPF routing, dynamic segmentation, and more.
For organizations looking to expand, its support for four-unit frontplane virtual stacking will be attractive. A business can easily add more 2930F switches and link them as a single logical unit, simplifying management while greatly expanding their bandwidth capacity.
However, all these features and capacity doesn't mean the 2930F is difficult to manage. Aruba unites all their networking products through a single-pane-of-glass cloud-based interface that gives you total oversight of every aspect of your Aruba network. You can easily see individual device usage, monitor local RF spectrum usage, watch for intrusions, run historical reports, and more - all from your tablet or smartphone.
Plus, unlike other brands, Aruba doesn't nickle-and-dime you with licensing fees either. Every feature, including cloud-based elements, are included as part of the core price - and for the full life of the hardware. This brings further value to an investment into Aruba, compared to other brands which require multiple time-limited licenses to fully function.
The Aruba 2930F is a great value, and a great choice for organizations in need of a high-powered enterprise network. To learn more, just contact Hummingbird Networks.
