Industry-leading limited lifetime warranty and support
The Aruba Instant On 1960 Switch Series includes five switches: two (2) 24-port and two (2) 48-port models in PoE and non-PoE configurations, and a 12 port 10-Gigabit aggregation switch. The access switches each have two (2) 10GBASE-T and two (2) 10G SFP+ uplink ports for highbandwidth connectivity. The 1960 aggregation switch comes with twelve (12) 10GBase-T and four (4) SFP+ ports, providing 10G connectivity to servers, network storage devices and access switches alike. With PoE models, up to 30W PoE power delivery is available for Class 4 PoE devices like access points, surveillance cameras and VoIP phones, and up to 60W PoE power delivery is available for Class 6 PoE devices like pan-tilt zoom cameras and video-enabled IP-phones. The 24-port and 48-port PoE models come with a power budget of 370W and 600W respectively to support the latest IoT devices.
The 1960 switches provide stacking capabilities: up to (four) 4 switches (access and aggregation can be mixed and matched in a stack) can be stacked together and managed through one single management IP address, simplifying network operations. This means up to 288 ports, including 16 10G uplink ports, operate as one switch.
The 1960 switches support stacking through local and cloudmanaged stacking modes. Local stacking provides True Stacking to easily configure, manage and troubleshoot physical switches as a single entity, while cloud-managed stacking provides ease-of-setup via the Instant On mobile app.
Using either the Instant On mobile app or the cloud-based web portal, you can quickly set up, monitor and manage the 1960 switch series from anywhere at any time.
