HPE Aruba 5406R 16-Port SFP v3 zl2 Switch

The HPE Aruba 5406R 16-Port SFP v3 zl2 Switch is an industry-leading mobile campus access solution with HPE Smart Rate multi-gigabit ports for high-speed connectivity for the latest 802.11ac devices. It brings enterprise-class resiliency and true flexibility, security, and scalability to mobile campus networks. Based on the 6th generation ProVision ASIC, it has a high-speed, high-capacity architecture with 2 Tbps crossbar switching fabric with low 2.1µ latency and a built-in programmable and easy to use REST API interface that provides configuration automation for Mobile-first campus networks.

Power And Innovation For Your Digital Workplace

The flexible connectivity options with 6- or 12- slot compact chassis, support for line rate 40GbE uplinks, up to 96 line rate 10GbE ports (SFP+ and 10GBASE-T), 1GbE, and up to 288 ports of PoE+ with internal power supplies. It is optimized for the digital workplace with unified management and security tools such as Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager, Aruba Airwave, and Aruba Central. Provides optimal configuration automatically when connected to Aruba access points for PoE priority, VLAN configuration, and rogue AP containment.

Resiliency And High Availability At The Edge

It delivers wire-speed classification and policy enforcement. This hardware-based control of access and traffic allows protection, detection, and response to network threats with no network performance degradation and offers uninterrupted switching and routing for improved support of applications such as unified communications and enhanced L3 high availability. It supports virtual router redundancy protocol (VRRP) allowing groups of two routers to dynamically back each other up to create highly available router environments in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. The redundant management and power systems enhance system availability and continuity of operations. The Hot-swappable module and optional redundant power supply provide uninterrupted power and allow swapping of modules with no impact on the network availability. The Virtual Switching Framework (VSF) virtualizes up to two physical switches into one logical device for simpler, flatter, more agile networks. Fast Software Upgrade minimizes downtime during upgrade on 5400R VSF stack.

Robust Security and Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS)

It features to build a network that meets ever-changing corporate policies and compliances. The flexible authentication options include 802.1X, MAC, and Web delivering greater policy-driven application security. The industry-standard MACsec provides link-level encryption security between two points using copper or fiber links. The advanced distributed denial of service (DDOS) protection, such as DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard, and ARP Protection, and flexible traffic controls, such as policy-based routing, QoS, and ACLs, manage end-to-end application priorities.

The powerful multilevel-access security controls, such as varying security management login, RADIUS/TACACS+, and SSH for safe control change management access. You can defend the edge of your IPv6 network with DHCPv6 Protection and Dynamic IPv6 Lockdown.

Simplify with Integrated Wired/Wireless Management

It supports Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager for unified and consistent policy between wired and wireless users and simplifies implementation and management of guest login, user onboarding, network access, security, QoS, and other network policies, and supports Aruba AirWave to provide a common platform for Zero-Touch Provisioning management and monitoring for wired and wireless network devices. The RMON, XRMON, and sFlow provide advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events. The Aruba Central cloud-based management platform offers a simple, secure, and cost-effective way to manage switches. It supports both cloud-based central and on-premise AirWave with the same hardware ensuring change of management platform without ripping and replacing switching infrastructure.
