Aruba Instant On 1930 Switch Series

Whether you own a cafe, a design firm or a tech startup, a reliable and secure network plays a critical role in the success of your business. And you need a network solution that gives you peace of mind, allowing you to focus on growing your business instead of managing problems with your network.

The Aruba Instant On 1930 switches features advanced, smart-managed, fixed-configuration Gigabit switches designed for small businesses that are easy-to-deploy and affordable. They’re made to handle today’s bandwidth-heavy applications like voice and video conferencing, enabling consistent connectivity to enhance performance.

Using either the Instant On mobile app or the cloud-based web portal, you can quickly set up, monitor and manage the 1930 switch series from anywhere at any time. What’s more, up to 30 W PoE power delivery is available out-of-the-box for your class 4 PoE devices, like access points, surveillance cameras and VoIP phones, all easily managed from the same platform.



  • Cloud-based management for entire network : The cloud-hosted web interface and mobile app make it easy to manage networks with Instant On APs and Switches.
  • Simple local web GUI management :
    • For management of individual switches, the intuitive Web GUI makes management simple, even for non-technical users.
    • Supports up to five (5) HTTP and HTTP Secure (HTTPS) sessions.
  • Firmware update : Provides notification of the latest firmware with the ability to schedule update at a preferred time through Instant On mobile app and cloud-based web portal.
  • Default DHCP client mode : Allows the switch to be directly connected to a network, enabling plug-and-play operation. In the absence of a DHCP server on the network, the switch falls back to the static address
  • Port mirroring : Enables traffic on a port or VLAN to be simultaneously sent to a network analyzer for monitoring.
  • Event logging and alerts : Provides detailed information for problem identification and resolution.
  • Account management : Allows administrators to add, modify, delete and transfer management accounts and passwords for secure access to Instant cloud management solution.
  • Locator LED : Allows users to set the locator LED on a specific switch to either turn on, blink, or turn off; simplifies troubleshooting by making it easy to locate a particular switch within a rack of similar switches. 

Quality of Service (QoS)

  • Traffic prioritization : Provides time-sensitive packets (like VoIP and video) with priority over other traffic based on DSCP or IEEE 802.1p classification.
  • IEEE 802.1p/Q VLAN tagging : Delivers data to devices based on the priority and type of traffic; supports IEEE 802.1Q.
  • Class of Service (CoS) :
    • Sets the IEEE 802.1p/DSCP priority to queue mapping
    • (4 queues). Supports strict priority queuing (SP) or weighted round robin (WRR) queuing. SP and WRR queuing can be configured on individual switch ports.
  • Advanced classifier based QoS : Classifies traffic using multiple match criteria based on Layer 2, 3, and 4 information.

Access Switching

  • SFP/SFP+ fiber connectivity :
    • Provides fiber connections for uplinks and other connections across longer distances than copper cabling can support.
    • SFP ports are in addition to available copper Ethernet ports, providing a higher total number of available ports. Two (2) SFP 1G ports available on 8-port models and four (4) SFP+ 1G/10G ports on 24-/48 port models.
  • Ethernet Alliance Certified Class 4 PoE (PoE+; IEEE 802.3at) : Provides up to 30 W per port, which allows support of the class 4 PoE (i.e. PoE+) capable devices such as video IP phones, wireless access points, and advanced pan/tilt/zoom security cameras, as well as any 15.4 W IEEE 802.3af-compliant end device; mitigates the cost of additional electrical cabling and circuits that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments.
  • Auto-PoE power configuration : The switch automatically assigns the required power to a port for a PD device based on Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP).
  • PoE power allocation : Support multiple methods (LLDP-MED automatic, class of PoE, or usage-based) to allocate PoE power for more efficient energy savings.
  • Auto MDI/MDI-X : Adjusts automatically for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100/1000 ports.

Network Security

  • TPM-based security : Includes a Trusted Platform Module(TPM) for secure hardware- based generation and storage of cryptographic keys used for secure connection to the Instant On cloud portal.
  • IEEE 802.1Q VLAN support : Support for up to 256 VLANs with a VLAN ID range of 2-4093
  • IEEE 802.1X access control : Authentication of network users on a per port basis prior to permitting network access. Port authentication includes RADIUS assigned VLAN, dynamic VLAN creation, guest VLAN or into an unauthenticated VLAN.
  • Automatic denial-of-service protection : Monitors for malicious attacks and protects the network by blocking the attacks.
  • Packet storm protection : Protects against unknown unicast, broadcast and multicast storms with user-defined thresholds.
  • RADIUS : The switch supports RADIUS authentication with primary and backup server configuration.
  • RADIUS accounting : A robust set of attributes and statistics are available for collecting information from the switch.
  • Management VLAN ID : Provides secure management access to administrators in the specified VLAN.
  • Link Flap prevention : Minimizes the network disruption by automatically detecting and disabling ports that experience link flap events.

Performance and Efficiency

  • Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) : Compliant with IEEE 802.3az standard requirements to save energy during periods of low data activity.
  • Auto-port shut down : The switch saves power by automatically shutting down power to inactive ports. Power is restored on a port upon link detection.
  • Energy savings status : The switch provides an estimated cumulative energy savings due to green Ethernet features being enabled.
  • Energy-efficient cooling : Includes variable speed fans operating only at the speed necessary to maintain operating temperature to reduce excess noise and power consumption.
  • Fan-less operation : Fan-less design for 8-port models, 24- and 48-port non-PoE models, making the switches ideal for office deployments.

Switching Features

  • IEEE 802.3x Flow control : Provides a flow-throttling mechanism propagated through the network to prevent packet loss at a congested node.
  • Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) : Supports standard IEEE 802.1D STP, IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) for faster convergence, and IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP on local web).
  • Loop protection : If the switch detects a loop, it disables the source port from forwarding data packets originating from the switch to avoid broadcast storms.
  • BPDU filtering : Drops BPDU packets when STP is enabled globally but disabled on a specific port.
  • Jumbo frame support : Supports up to 9216 bytes frame size to improve the performance of large data transfers.
  • IGMP snooping v1/v2 : Improves network performance through multicast filtering, instead of flooding traffic on all ports.
  • Link aggregation : Groups together multiple ports up to a maximum of eight (8) ports per trunk automatically using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), or manually, to form a high-bandwidth connection to the network backbone that helps prevent traffic bottlenecks. The 8-port models support 4 trunks, 24-port models support 8 trunks, and 48-port models support 16 trunks.
  • LLDP/LLDP-MED (Media Endpoint Discovery) : Defines a standard extension of LLDP that stores values for parameters such as QoS and VLAN for automatic configuration of network devices such as IP phones.
  • Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) : The ARP table displays all of the IP addresses that have been resolved to MAC addresses, either dynamically or through static entry configuration.
