Redundant Power Supply Options

Redundant Power Supply (RPS) is a feature in some switches that provides backup power in the event of a failure in the primary power supply. This ensures that the switch continues to operate even if there is a problem with the power supply, avoiding network downtime and potential data loss.

The HPE R8N87A#ABA Aruba 24G Class4 PoE 4sfp 370W Switch supports RPS options, providing customers with the flexibility to choose the right power supply configuration to meet their specific needs. With RPS, the switch can be equipped with multiple power supplies, and if one fails, the other will take over automatically, maintaining the switch's availability and uptime.

Having a redundant power supply option can improve the reliability and resiliency of the network, and is especially important in mission-critical applications where network availability is a top priority.

Benefits of 370W Power Supply

The HPE R8N87A#ABA Aruba 24G Class4 PoE 4sfp 370W Switch is equipped with a 370W power supply, providing several benefits to users. Some of these benefits include:

  • Power Over Ethernet (PoE) Support: The switch supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), allowing customers to power devices such as wireless access points, IP phones, and security cameras over the Ethernet cable. The 370W power supply provides ample power to support these devices, eliminating the need for separate power supplies or outlets.
  • High-Power Devices Support: The switch supports high-power devices such as cameras and wireless access points that require more power than standard devices. The 370W power supply provides the necessary power to support these high-power devices, eliminating the need for additional power supplies or power injectors.
  • Increased Resilience: With a higher power supply, the switch can continue to operate even if one of the power supplies fails. This provides increased resilience and reliability for the network, reducing the risk of downtime and potential data loss.
  • Energy Efficiency: The switch is designed to be energy efficient, with features such as Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) that reduce power consumption during periods of low network utilization. The high power supply allows the switch to support high-power devices while still being energy efficient, making it a green computing solution.

Virtual Switching Framework (VSF)

Virtual Switching Framework (VSF) is a technology that allows multiple physical switches to work together as a single virtual switch, providing increased scalability, redundancy, and ease of management for large networks.

In a VSF setup, multiple physical switches are interconnected and act as a single virtual switch, providing a unified network view and management interface. This allows network administrators to manage multiple switches as a single entity, reducing the complexity of managing large networks.

With VSF, multiple switches can be linked together to form a large virtual switch fabric, providing increased scalability and capacity. The VSF technology also supports multiple active data paths, which can improve network resiliency by providing alternative routes for network traffic in the event of a failure.

The HPE R8N87A#ABA Aruba 24G Class4 PoE 4sfp 370W Switch supports VSF, allowing customers to leverage the technology to build large, scalable and resilient networks. The switch provides the necessary hardware and software support to participate in a VSF fabric, providing customers with the flexibility to choose the right solution to meet their specific needs.

Different Types of Switches

Networking switches vary widely depending on the number of devices they can support, network bandwidth/speed, and form factor. Switches for small offices will have anything between 4 and 8 ports and can fit on a desk. For larger office network implementation, switches may have 24 ports, 48 ports, 96 ports, and 128 ports and are rack-mountable between 1U and 4U. Switches come in different types depending on the network speed and tasks they support. These include 40/100 Gbps, 10 Gigabit (up to 10000 Mbps), Gigabit Ethernet (up to 1000 Mbps), Power over Ethernet, and Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps).

Unmanaged Switches

The unmanaged switches offer fixed configurations on a plug-and-play basis. It is the most basic switch and there are a few choices in the market. These switches are affordable, but the basic features make them inappropriate for enterprise applications.

Managed Switches

The number of features and level of functionality improves with managed switches, making them ideal for enterprise and business applications. These switches are built with the command-line interface for ease of configuration. Equally, they support SNMP agents that come in handy when troubleshooting network issues.

The security on managed switches is better and will protect different types of traffic. Other features include support for virtual LANs, IP routing, and quality of service settings. Managed switches are more expensive compared to all other types of switches.

Smart Switches

Smart switches refer to switches that possess more features than those unmanaged switches but do not have the full features of managed switches. Smart switches are more cost-effective than managed switches.

Some of the limitations of the smart switches are a lack of telnet access support, Web GUIs, and a lack of many features for VLANs. They are affordable compared to a fully managed switch and are suitable for a smaller computer network.

Modular Switches

Modular switches allow the addition of expansion modules as the network expands. The expansion modules allow for more networked devices but are application-specific. They may include wireless access points, firewalls, or network analysis tools. The flexibility of a modular networking switch comes at a higher cost.
