The HPE Aruba R8N85A is a network switch that provides the following features and benefits:

  1. High-speed networking: The R8N85A supports high-speed networking with speeds up to 10Gbps, making it suitable for bandwidth-intensive applications.

  2. Layer 2/3 switching: The switch supports both layer 2 (data link) and layer 3 (network) switching, providing advanced network routing and traffic management capabilities.

  3. Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) support: The switch supports the creation of multiple VLANs, which can help segment network traffic and improve network security.

  4. Quality of Service (QoS): The switch supports QoS, which allows network administrators to prioritize network traffic and ensure that critical applications receive the bandwidth they need.

  5. Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE): The switch supports Energy Efficient Ethernet, which can help reduce energy consumption and lower operating costs.

  6. Easy management: The switch provides an intuitive web interface and can be managed through the Aruba Central cloud-based management platform, making it easy to configure, monitor, and manage the switch.

  7. Scalability: The switch is scalable, making it easy to add more ports and switches as your network grows.

  8. Reliability: The switch is built with high-quality components and has been designed for reliable operation, helping to ensure that your network stays up and running.


For those medium-size businesses and smaller enterprises seeking entry-level switches that provide a high level of performance, the R8N85A Aruba CX 6000 48G Class4 PoE 4SFP 370W Switch is ideally designed to perform a wide array of system tasks.

This R8N85A Aruba 6000 48G Class4 PoE 4SFP 370W switch is simple in design, but they provide reliable performance, not to mention excellent security features. It is both convenient and cost-effective as a wired-access solution for those networks that support cloud and mobile applications, not to mention IoT.

The system architecture in R8N85A Aruba 6000 Switch is based on the Aruba ASIC, which can be used with the AOS-CX operating system. The operating system is programmable, and the combination can be used throughout the entire line of Aruba CS products, which ensures a more efficient and consistent operator experience.

The R8N85A Aruba 6000 48G Class4 PoE 4SFP 370W switch also contains built-in uplinks, which can provide up to 370 Watts of Class 4 PoE. That means they can support a variety of IoT devices, including wireless APs along with security cameras.

The smaller footprint makes them perfect for smaller workplaces and offices, and the fact that the model is fanless means quieter performance as well. This combination helps give management more flexible system choices, and it makes them especially easy to employ in a variety of settings.

The Feature Set

Part of the feature set in R8N85A Aruba 6000 48G Class4 PoE 4SFP 370W switches is about connectivity. Specifically, users get gigabit Ethernet capabilities, along with optional PoE access, which gives them the ability to handle both SMB networks and branch offices.

The R8N85A Aruba 6000 switch also supports and delivers Layer 2 capabilities. These include static routing, the ability to prioritize different traffic levels, sFlow and QoS, and IPv6 support.

Users have a choice when it comes to the number of ports, with options including 12, 24 and 48 1U models, and these include the built-in Ethernet connective and the 370W PoE. This eliminates the need for licensing and subscriptions, which means the solutions get even simpler.

Power and Performance

There's no need to worry about power consumption with the R8N85A Aruba 6000 48G Class4 PoE 4SFP 370W switches. They come with a high level of packet buffering and low latency, and the power levels will adapt to the requirements of many different applications.

R8N85A Aruba 6000 switches can supply up to 30W of power per port, and the built-in uplinks are capable of eliminating bottlenecks at the access layer, which is typically where users and devices tend to interconnect in the majority of applications.

Managing the Configurations

Users can employ a variety of interfaces when it comes to managing and controlling the configurations of the CX switches. The simplified choices include Web GUI, Aruba NetEdit, or CLI, which is a widespread industry standard.

Aruba NetEdit is especially powerful. It gives users a number of automation options, which in turn makes it easier to implement network-wide changes. It can also help verify application-specific policy performance by providing post-network updates, and the software complex complete with REST APIs, which offer multiple levels of programmability.

Manual IT operation related to configuration manipulation can also be minimized in any number of ways by using ports that support both local user roles and LMA.
