This stackable Layer 3 switch series provides performance and ease of use for enterprises, small and medium-sized businesses, and branch office networks.

Stackable Layer 3 access switches

With enterprise-grade features built-in, the Aruba 2930F is simple to secure, deploy, and manage.

Simplicity built-in

Simplicity built-in

This cost-effective, agile switch provides fast, powerful network access to IoT devices, access points, and users. Featuring convenient built-in uplinks and PoE+ power, the 2930F is simple to deploy and manage with advanced security and network management tools.

Security for users and IoT

Security for users and IoT

Aruba Dynamic Segmentation extends Aruba’s foundational, wireless role-based policy capability to Aruba wired switches. That means regardless of how users and IoT devices connect, consistent policies are enforced across wired and wireless networks, keeping traffic secure and separate.

Unified cloud-based management

Aruba Central delivers full-service AI insights, and security and unified infrastructure management for campus, branch, remote, and data center networks, all from a single pane of glass. It’s network configuration and operations made simple.

Icon for simple deployment Simple deployment

Simple deployment

With Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) and support from cloud-based Aruba Central, you can quickly set up remote offices with little or no IT support. 

Secure and powerful access

Optimized for mobile users with an integrated wired and wireless approach, these reliable Layer 3 switches are easy to deploy and manage.

Layer 3 Ethernet switches

Comes with enterprise-grade feature set that includes static and RIP routing, IPv6, ACLs, robust security, and QoS.

Grow quickly and simply

Supports 8-member VSF stacking so you can quickly add users and devices while keeping switch management simple.

Right-size switches

Choose from compact 8-, 12-, 24-, and 48-port Ethernet switches with optional PoE and 10GbE uplinks built-in.

Power over Ethernet

Up to 740W of PoE to support access points, IP phones, and IoT.

Flexible management

Innovative design supports cloud-based and on-premise management, CLI, and easy-to-use Web GUI with the same hardware, eliminating rip and replace of equipment as network management needs grow.
