Management Interfaces
There are two serial console port options on the switch, an RJ-45 or Micro USB. These ports are used to connect a console to
the switch either by using the RJ-45 serial cable supplied with the switch, or a standard Micro USB cable (not supplied).
The Micro USB connector has precedence for input, so if both cables are plugged in, the console output is echoed to both the
RJ and Micro-USB ports. But, the input is only accepted from the Micro-USB.

Power connector
The 2930F 24-port and 48-port switches do not have a power switch; they are powered on when connected to an active AC
power source. The switches automatically adjust to any voltage between 100-127 and 200-240 volts and either 50 or 60 Hz.
There are no voltage range settings required.
The 2930F 8-port switch (JL258A) does not have a power switch, it is powered on when the external AC/DC power adapter is
connected to the switch and to a power source. The external AC/DC power adapter supplies 12 volts DC or 54 volts DC (for
PoE+ switches) to the switch and automatically adjusts to any AC voltage between 100-240 volts and either 50 or 60 Hz. No
voltage range settings are required.

Hardware architecture
2930F Switch family is designed with ArubaOS ASIC that provides 4x 10GE XFI and 48x1GE QSGMII ports in a single
package. The ArubaOS Integrated ASIC is a single chip solution and does not need a Fabric Chip and supports front-plane
stacking. All chassis PCAs does not required to share the same PCB to optimize on product cost. The non-PoE chassis
consists of 2 PCAs; Mainboard and a LED board. The PoE chassis will have an additional PoE controller board. The main
difference between the POE+ and the NON POE PCAs is the PoE controller, filter circuitry and the Power supply.

Connectivity
Flexible 1 or 10 Gbps SFP+: up to four optional 1 or 10-Gigabit ports (SFP/SFP+)
Dual-speed uplinks: includes two 10/100/1000 ports or SFP/SFP+ slots for optional fiber connectivity such as Gigabit-SX, -LX,
and -LH, or 100-FX (only supported on the 8 port model)
Packet Buffer Memory Allocation
The ARUBA 2930F Series Switches have 12.375 MB of packet buffers, 7.785 MB of egress packet buffer and 4.5 MB of ingress
packet buffer. Approximately 60 KB of ingress buffers is allocated for each 1Gig port and approximately 240 KB of ingress
buffer is allocated for each 10Gig port.
This table displays the Packet Buffer allocations for the ARUBA 2930F Series Switches. Both the 24 and 48 port versions of the
2930F use the same ASIC with the same available buffers. In the case of the 24 port, some of the buffer will go unused. And
any attempt to calculate the total buffer from the per-port numbers will result in mismatched numbers. This is due to internal
ports that don’t have connections outside the box and due to overhead.

The 2930F-24 switches have 24 1 Gigabit ports and up to 4 10 Gigabit ports with 6.5 MB of dynamically allocated packet buffer.
The 24 port switches use a single ArubaOS Switching ASIC.
The 2930F-48 switches have 48 1 Gigabit ports and up to 4 10 Gigabit ports with 6.5 MB of dynamically allocated packet buffer.
The 48 port switches use a single ArubaOS Switching ASIC.
Each port is statically allocated a certain amount of packet buffer. Depending on the number of queues (2, 4, or 8), the amount
of statically allocated packet buffer per port changes, thus reducing the amount of shared dynamic packet buffer memory
available.
For 2 queues, there is less packet buffer statically allocated per port, thus the 4.5 MB of shared packet buffer memory available,
compared to the 4.0 MB for the 8 queue configuration.
For each of the different queue configurations, depending on the port type, each port is limited to a specific amount of the
shared packet buffer memory it can utilize. For a 2 queue configuration, each 1 Gigabit port can only use up to 1 MB of the
shared packet buffer memory.
The ARUBA 2930F is configured to support 8 queues by default.

Aruba 2930F Switch Series Technical Product Guide
•
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
Energy efficiency
The 2930F (24/48 port) PoE+ SKUs utilize high-efficiency power supplies: 80 PLUS Silver Certified power supply increases
power savings.
There are energy efficiency features built into the ArubaOS ASICs used in the ARUBA 2930F Series Switches.
One such feature is smart clock gating. Clock gating is a method by which power is turned off to portions of a system’s logic
when not in use. Traditionally, clock gating has been associated more with loss of performance rather than energy savings due
to the fact that powered-down areas did not power up until network traffic reached them, resulting in processing delays. HP has
overcome that challenge: with smart clock gating built into the ARUBA 2930F Switching ASIC, traffic through the semiconductor
is coordinated and anticipated so specific resources can be “turned on” immediately before they are needed. This maximizes
idle time and power savings without hindering throughput.
Energy-efficient Ethernet (EEE) support: reduces power consumption in accordance with IEEE 802.3az.
Energy Efficient Ethernet, the IEEE 802.3az standard, is focused on reducing energy consumption of networking components
that are in an idle state.
Figure 21. IEEE 802.3az power comparison
Among other energy savings strategies, 802.3az utilizes LLDP to communicate energy efficiency information between links without interrupting
data flow. Ports use wake/sleep signals to communicate status between devices and to more efficiently transmit data. Transmit and receive
circuits are deactivated during periods of inactivity to reduce energy consumption.
Power consumption is also reduced at the MAC level through Reconciliation Sublayer Enhancements.
Additional power savings on the physical level can be attained by decreasing the power consumption when components are idle between traffic
bursts. This is called low power idle.
EEE is supported only on the Ethernet ports at 100Base-TX or 1000Base-T. It is not supported on the SFP, SFP+.
The software for the ARUBA 2930F Series switches provides the capability to turn on and off specific features to provide power savings.
19
Technical White Paper
Aruba 2930F Switch Series Technical Product Guide
The Energy Efficient Ethernet command, “energy-efficient-ethernet”, allows the EEE option to be turned on or off for specified ports. EEE
includes the LLDP transmissions and low power idle option.
•
savepower led
Enabling “savepower led” will turn off most of the LEDs on the switch. The LEDs can be turned on by “no savepower led” or
pressing the mode button will enable the LEDs. The LEDs will turn off 10 minutes after the mode button was last pressed.
•
savepower port-low-pwr
If "savepower port-low-pwr" command is executed, all ports on the switch will have the "auto-low-power mode enabled"
(assuming these are all the standard RJ45 based copper ports). What this means is that if such ports are not linked, they
would go to a "low-power" state and would periodically monitor to see if the link got active. So, if an active LAN cable is
connected to one of the ports, that particular port would come out of the "low power state" after ~2 seconds (the monitor
period) and link up as normal. The other ports on the switch would continue to be in the low-power mode.
Fan monitoring

Multiple Spanning Tree (MSTP) and Rapid Per-VLAN Spanning Tree Plus (RPVST+)
MSTP provides high link availability in multiple VLAN environments by allowing multiple spanning trees;
RPVST+ is designed to use redundant links more efficiently than STP or RSTP. As you know, with STP or RSTP, some
redundant links are blocked and remain idle. Depending on how much traffic is generated, active links can become congested
while these links are idle.
RPVST+ allows you to configure a separate topology for each VLAN. Each topology can have a different root bridge, and a
port’s role is defined on a per VLAN basis. A redundant link might be active for one topology but blocked for another.
In the simple network shown here, for example, the link between Switch B and Switch C is blocked for VLAN 10 but in a
forwarding state for VLAN 20. Likewise, the link between Switch A and Switch C is blocked for VLAN 20 but active for VLAN 10.
Figure 22. RPVST+
Because RPVST+ provides a per-VLAN implementation of RSTP, topology changes affect only the VLAN (or VLANs) on which
the changes occur. This reduces the impact of RPVST+ changes on the network.
In addition, RPVST+ is VLAN aware. That is, an interface will participate in a VLAN’s STP topology only if that VLAN is
configured on the interface.
Further information on RPVST+ can be found in the Advanced Traffic Management Guide.

Limitations
Routing limitations:
When configuring OSPF on the switch one must remember that the switch will only support OSPF for a single area (no
limitation on Area number), this limitation restrict the use of the switch as an edge switch and prevent the use of the switch as a
ABR.
Stacking Limitations
Currently 2930F does not support stacking (as of Ver 16.02.0012) however stacking with the use of VSF is on the roadmap for
end of year 2016 or early 2017. The limitation with VSF stacking will be the port capabilities and maximum support of up to 4
devices in a single stack.
Transceiver compatibility
The Allow Unsupported Transceiver feature allows the user to try a transceiver part (including DAC cables) without the
switch attempting to authenticate it as a genuine HPE Aruba part. There is no guarantee that all third-party transceivers will
work: typically the ones that work are industry-standard types as identified by the MSA standards body. Those parts that do not
comply will most likely still not be enabled.
HPE fully backs only HPE Aruba supported transceivers (listed in the switch QuickSpecs under Accessories); support efforts
will be honored.
Support efforts may require the customer to replace any non-HPE Aruba transceiver/DAC with an equivalent supported HPE
Aruba branded transceiver/DAC.
Space, Power, and Environmental Data
Part of the energy efficiency message for the ARUBA 2930F Series Switches is the efficiency of the power supplies. The power
supplies for the ARUBA 2930F PoE+ models have been previously approved for 80PLUS.org for certification of their efficiency.

Key differences
•
The 2920 provides for 2 optional 10Gig modules of either 2 port SFP+ module or 2 port 10GBase-T module. The
2930F provides for 4 optional 10Gig SFP+ or 1Gig SFP Ports.
•
The 2920 provides for an optional 2 port high-performance stacking module. The 2930 does not supports stacking
(VSF for front plane stacking will be added by end of 2016 or early 2017).
•
The 2920 has front facing Auxiliary Port for transferring software images and switch configuration files. The 2930F
does not have AUX port.
•
The 2920 has a front facing Out-of-Band Management (OOBM) port for administration. The 2930F does not have an
OOBM port.
•
The 2920 has a removable Power Supply. The 2930F has a fixed Power Supply. In the unlikely event of a Power
Supply failure, the Power Supply in the 2920 can be replaced on-site. Whereas, the entire 2930F switch would need to
be replaced.
