Overview
This chapter introduces you to the 2400-E Access Multiplexer. It describes the
general features of the system and illustrates key physical elements. Once you are
familiar with the system, you can begin the installation process covered in the
next chapters.
The Aruba 2400-E Access Multiplexer is a wired concentrator deployed in the
closet distribution switch to secure network ports located either in common
areas, conference rooms or cubes, and in office ports. All traffic traversing an
2400-E will be tunneled over the network to an Aruba Mobility Controller, where
security services will be applied.
Features
This section outlines the general features of the 2400-E Access Multiplexer:
„
2 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) uplink ports.
„
24 Fast Ethernet (FE) ports with Serial and Power Over Ethernet (SPOE)
capability.
„
Each Access Multiplexer counts as one AP against the AP limit on the
Mobility Controller (regardless of the number of ports connected).
Upon discovery of an Aruba Mobility Controller, the 2400-E will register with the
Mobility Controller. When the multiplexer ports have been configured, the 2400-E
will then establish a secure GRE tunnel from each of these ports to the Mobility
Controller.

Initializing the 2400-E
Before you can access the Web-based WebUI tools, which is the primary
configuration interface for Aruba Access Multiplexers, the switch must be
configured with basic system information through the CLI.
Generally, this basic system configuration is performed the first time an
administrator logs in to the switch, when the factory-installed setup dialog is
automatically launched and prompts the administrator for this basic system
information.
Serial Console Port
The serial console port is located on the front panel of the 2400-E Access
Multiplexer. This port is for connecting a local management console and can be
used to access the text-based Command-Line Interface (CLI) to configure,
manage, and troubleshoot the 2400-E Access Multiplexer.
Connect the required RS-232 serial cable to a terminal with a DB-9 male port. (All
switch accessory kits contain a flat RJ-45 to RJ-45 cable and DB-9 to RJ-45
adapter for this purpose). Use the following communications settings for
connecting to a terminal emulation session on the terminal

Ports
The Aruba 2400-E Access Multiplexer has a number of ports, each with their own
purpose:
„
24 Fast Ethernet (FE) ports
Used for connecting to Access Points (APs) and wired LAN segments. These
10/100 Mbps FE ports aggregate and route traffic under the direction of the
switch’s internal software. These ports can also provide power and serial
connectivity to compatible devices.
„
2 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports
Used for high-bandwidth 1000 Mbps GE uplink between the 2400-E Access
Multiplexer and the wired LAN. Each port socket accepts a variety of Gigabit
Interface Converters (GBICs) for versatility in selecting optical and electrical
interfaces.
„
One Serial Console port
Used for connecting a local configuration and management console.
This chapter describes the general features and physical characteristics of the
various ports and details their compatible cables and connectors.
FE Network Ports
The 2400-E Access Multiplexer has 24 Fast Ethernet (FE) network ports.
The FE ports are used for connecting the switch to wireless Access Points (APs)
and wired LAN segments. These ports can also provide power and serial
connectivity to compatible devices. All FE ports automatically sense and negotiate
speed, duplex, and MDI/MDX settings.
Serial & Power Over Ethernet
Each FE port supports RS-232 Serial communications and IEEE 802.3af Power
Over Ethernet (SPOE).
When a compatible Power Over Ethernet (POE) device (such as the Aruba AP) is
connected to a network port, the port can provide operating power to that device
through the connected Ethernet cable. This allows APs to be installed in areas
Aruba 2400-E
Installation Guide
21
Ports
where electrical outlets are unavailable, undesirable, or not permitted, such as in
the plenum and air handling spaces. The switch network ports automatically
detect when compatible POE devices are connected and require power.
The network ports also provide serial connectivity over the same Ethernet cable,
allowing convenient access to device console interfaces.
Special cables and adapters may be necessary to use SPOE features with some
equipment. See material starting on page 24 for port and cable specifications.

Cables
The type of cable required for each port depends on the device being connected:
„
Direct connection to a SPOE compatible device.
This requires an 8-conductor Category 5 UTP Ethernet cable with an RJ-45
male connector. A straight-through cable is required to preserve POE voltage
polarity.
The port should be connected to the intended device either directly or using a
SPOE adapter with no intervening hubs, routers, switches, or other network
equipment.
Aruba SPOE adapters separate the serial and FE portions of the cable and
route them to their individual ports on the connected device. There are two
adapter models:
z
CA-SPOE-ADAPT-1 adapts the Ethernet cable for DB-9 serial and RJ-45
FE devices.
z
CA-SPOE-ADAPT-2 adapts the Ethernet cable for RJ-45 serial and RJ-45
FE devices.
