HP JL254A overview

  • 1Description

Supporting OpenFlow 1.0 and 1.3 specifications, the JL261A Aruba 2930F 24G PoE+ 4SFP Switch from Aruba is designed to provide network administrators access to nearly every aspect of the switch including the ability to run experimental protocols. With OpenFlow functionality it is now possible to separate packet forwarding from routing decisions made by the switch resulting in a cleaner flow of data. Along with support for OpenFlow network functionality, this switch supports RIP and Access OSFP Routing, ACLs, and enhanced Quality of Service (QoS) features.

This Aruba Switch comes equipped with support for the Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager. This powerful software gives network administrators the ability to create smart policies designed to handle a variety of networking needs including those posed by the ever-expanding mobile market and the always evolving Internet of Things arena. The ClearPass Policy Manager also allows for device profiling to streamline the task of creating privileges based upon device type, ownership status, or operating system. Once configured, this policy manager provides real-time analytics as well as support for ClearPass Onboard which assists in the configuration of policies implemented to cover devices brought to the workplace by employees.

The heart of this Aruba Switch is its support for 1 GbE connectivity spread across all network ports as well as 10 GbE uplink ports designed for super-fast network connectivity. Setup and configuration of the switch has also been greatly simplified thanks to support for Zero Touch Provisioning. This provisioning standard allows for easy integration into existing networks. Once the switch is physically connected to the network and booted up with the default factory configuration, it attempts to assimilate into the network without requiring any additional programming.

Software-Defined Networking
OpenFlow supports OpenFlow 1.0 and 1.3 specifications to enable SDN by allowing separation of the data (packet forwarding) and control (routing decision) paths
Unified Wired and Wireless
Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager support Unified wired and wireless policies using Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager

Switch auto-configuration automatically configures switch for different settings such as VLAN, CoS, PoE max. power, and PoE priority when an Aruba access point is detected

Local user role defines a set of switch-based policies in areas such as security, authentication, and QoS. A user role can be assigned to a group of users or devices, using switch configuration or ClearPass

Per-port tunneled node provides a secured tunnel to transport network traffic on a per-port basis to an Aruba Controller. Authentication and network policies will be applied and enforced at the controller

HPE/Aruba ASIC architecture is designed with the latest HPE/Aruba ASIC, providing very low latency, increased packet buffering, and adaptive power consumption

Selectable queue configurations allows for increased performance by selecting the number of queues and associated memory buffering that best meet the requirements of the network applications
IP multicast snooping and data-driven IGMP automatically prevents flooding of IP multicast traffic

LLDP-MED (Media Endpoint Discovery) defines a standard extension of LLDP that stores values for parameters such as QoS and VLAN to automatically configure network devices such as IP phones

IEEE 802.1AB Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) facilitates easy mapping using network management applications with LLDP automated device discovery protocol

PoE and PoE+ allocations support multiple methods (automatic, IEEE 802.3at dynamic, LLDP-MED fine grain, IEEE 802.3af device class, or user-specified) to allocate and manage PoE/PoE+ power for more efficient energy savings

Local MAC Authentication assigns attributes such as VLAN and QoS using locally configured profile that can be a list of MAC prefixes
Resiliency and High Availability
IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree provides high link availability in multiple VLAN environments by allowing Multiple Spanning Trees; provides legacy support for IEEE 802.1d and IEEE 802.1w

IEEE 802.3ad link aggregation control protocol (LACP) and port trunking support up to 128 static, dynamic, or distributed trunks active across a stack, with each trunk having up to eight links (ports) per static trunk; and offer support for trunking across stack members

SmartLink provides easy-to-configure link redundancy of active and standby links
SNMPv1, v2, and v3 provide complete support of SNMP; provide full support of industry-standard Management Information Base (MIB) plus private extensions; SNMPv3 supports increased security using encryption

Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) simplifies installation of the switch infrastructure using the Aruba Activate-based or a DHCP-based process with AirWave Network Management
Dual flash images provide independent primary and secondary operating system files for backup while upgrading

Friendly port names allow assignment of descriptive names to ports

Find-Fix-Inform finds and fixes common network problems automatically, then informs administrator

Jumbo packet support improves the performance of large data transfers; supports frame size of up to 9,220 bytes

IEEE 802.1v protocol VLANs isolate select non-IPv4 protocols automatically into their own VLANs

Access OSPF
- Provide OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 protocols for routing between access and the next layer on the LAN. Only one OSPF area and up to 8 interfaces are supported
Multiple user authentication methods
- IEEE 802.1X uses an IEEE 802.1X supplicant on the client in conjunction with a RADIUS server to authenticate in accordance with industry standards
- Web-based authentication provides a browser-based environment, similar to IEEE 802.1X, to authenticate clients that do not support the IEEE 802.1X supplicant
- MAC-based authentication authenticates the client with the RADIUS server based on the client's MAC address

Authentication flexibility
- Multiple IEEE 802.1X users per port provides authentication of multiple IEEE 802.1X users per port; prevents a user from "piggybacking" on another user's IEEE 802.1X authentication

Access control lists (ACLs) provide IP Layer 3 filtering based on source/destination IP address/subnet and source/ destination TCP/UDP port number

Source-port filtering allows only specified ports to communicate with each other

RADIUS/TACACS+ eases switch management security administration by using a password authentication server

Secure shell encrypts all transmitted data for secure remote CLI access over IP networks

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypts all HTTP traffic, allowing secure access to the browser-based management GUI in the switch

Port security allows access only to specified MAC addresses, which can be learned or specified by the administrator

MAC address lockout prevents particular configured MAC addresses from connecting to the network

Secure FTP allows secure file transfer to and from the switch; protects against unwanted file downloads or unauthorized copying of a switch configuration file

Switch management logon security helps secure switch CLI logon by optionally requiring either RADIUS or TACACS+ authentication

Custom banner displays security policy when users log in to the switch

STP BPDU port protection blocks Bridge Protocol Data Units (BPDUs) on ports that do not require BPDUs, preventing forged BPDU attacks

DHCP protection blocks DHCP packets from unauthorized DHCP servers, preventing denial-of-service attacks

Dynamic ARP protection blocks ARP broadcasts from unauthorized hosts, preventing eavesdropping or theft of network data

STP root guard protects the root bridge from malicious attacks or configuration mistakes

Identity-driven ACL enables implementation of a highly granular and flexible access security policy and VLAN assignment specific to each authenticated network user

Per-port broadcast throttling configures broadcast control selectively on heavy traffic port uplinks

Private VLAN provides network security by restricting peer-to-peer communication to prevent a variety of malicious attacks; typically a switch port can only communicate with other ports in the same community and/or an uplink port, regardless of VLAN ID or destination MAC address
Monitor and Diagnostics
Digital optical monitoring of SFP+ and 1000BASE-T transceivers allows detailed monitoring of the transceiver settings and parameters
