Upgrading to Aruba Instant On 1830 Series

Why you should switch from the HPE OfficeConnect 1820 Switch Series

The pandemic has highlighted the need for small businesses to invest in IT services to enable remote working and boost online sales, amongst other things. This increase in online activity has in turn heightened the need for investments in cloud and cybersecurity services, as SMBs increasingly rely on IT to compete in the post-pandemic world.

However, small businesses lack the resources that larger companies have to dedicate towards IT. They need cost-effective solutions to manage their networks, as they don’t have the people or the budget to afford complex networking solutions.

Introducing the Aruba Instant On 1830 Switch Series

The 1930 Switch Series is an affordable and easy to deploy and manage switch series for small businesses looking for cost-effective wired infrastructure to keep up with evolving network demands. These are entry-level smart-managed switches offering Layer 2 switching capabilities, Gigabit connectivity along with flexible management modes — all at an affordable price point. With a flexible management dashboard, Power over Ethernet (PoE) options, and energy-efficient features, these switches deliver a solid business network for SMBs with limited budgets.

The Aruba Instant On 1830 Switch Series is ideal for deployments in home offices, retail stores and small professional offices.

Icon Support for IoT Devices Besides powering up through a power adapter, the 8-port non-PoE model can also be powered from an external PoE switch, offering greater flexibility for space-constrained environments by eliminating the need for additional power outlets.

 

Switch Management

Instant On switch management app Instant On switches can be deployed using two management modes: Instant On cloud-management (access via mobile app and/or web portal) and the local web GUI, all at no extra cost.

 

Product Features

Power over Ethernet (PoE) support

The 1830 Switch Series is ready to deploy in 8-, 24-, and 48-port for non-PoE and Class 4 PoE models. Up to 30 W PoE power delivery is available for Class 4 PoE devices. With PoE and non-PoE ports supported in the same PoE model, these switches are ideal for the most cost-efficient environments.

Flexible management options

Easily deploy and manage 1830 switches using two management modes – Instant On cloud management (access via mobile app and/or web portal) or the local web GUI.

Integrated security features

Prevent unauthorized access and protect your business data with advanced security features like VLANs, automatic Denial-of-service protection, Global Storm Control, TPM (Trusted Platform module) based security and more.

Optimal energy efficiency

Cut operating costs and reduce your environmental footprint with 1830 switches. Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az), auto-port shutdown, energy-efficient cooling support and fanless design all help maintain operating temperatures, reducing excess noise and power consumption.

SFP fiber connectivity

Two (2) and four (4) dedicated 1G SFP fiber ports on 24- and 48-port models respectively eliminate traffic bottlenecks across your network. Fiber connectivity provides higher uplink bandwidth and performance across longer distances than copper cabling can support.

PoE Powered Device (PD) enabled

Simplify deployments in hard-to-wire areas by the PD powered 8-port non-PoE model that can be powered from an external PoE switch or an external injector, offering greater flexibility for space-constrained environments by eliminating the need for additional power outlets and wiring.

The Aruba Instant On 1830 Switch Series

Six different models, all offering hardware and software improvements over the HPE OfficeConnect 1820 switch series

As you grow your network, migrate to Instant On 1830 based on features you need, but rest assured both systems work together, so you can update your network at your own pace.
