For small and mid-sized businesses looking for an elite combination of power and flexibility in their switching systems, the Aruba 6000 CX Switch Series offers premium performance at an affordable price.

To find out if it’s a good fit for your network and backroom computer setup, let’s look at some of the specs and performance parameters in more detail. What follows is a brief overview, along with a breakdown of the key elements in the feature set.

The Aruba CX 6000 Basics

The CX system is based on Aruba’s ASIC architecture, and it features a programmable AOS-CX operating system that can be used in mobile, cloud and loT applications to create a seamless operator experience.

Moreover, there are built-in uplinks that can handle up to 370W of Class 4 PoE, which allows the switching series to support devices like security cameras.

Another basic element of the CX 6000 system is that these switches are compact, and they don’t require a fan. This makes them ideal for use in small, quiet workspaces, and they’re an ideal fit for any number of applications.

The Important Features

The R8N89A CS 6000 Aruba switch provides Layer 2 capabilities, which helps them support any number of system functions. These include static routing, prioritizing traffic, ACLs, QoS, IPv6 support and sFlow.

R8N89A 6000 Aruba switch can also be deployed up to 48 port 1U models, and they also include built-in 1 GbE uplinks for convenience and accessibility.

Best of all, these switches require no switch software licensing, nor do you need a subscription, which increases the flexibility you have when it comes to how you deploy them.

The Power/Performance Equation

One of the biggest advantages R8N89A Aruba Switch offers pertains to their power utilization when compared to the level of performance they deliver.

R8N89A Aruba Switch provides low latency with potentially low power consumption, and the packet buffering they offer is superior as well.

The uplinks help eliminate bottlenecks that can occur at the access level, and they can handle a per-port power level of 30W.

Simple Management and Configuration

Another significant advantage of the R8N89A CX 6000 switch has to do with making management and configuration as simple as possible.

The switches are designed to work with Aruba NetEdit, but they can also be used with any Web GUI, or you can go with any standard CLI as your interface of choice.

The ArubaNet interface is the optimum choice. It gives you the ability to do fast changes across your network, and it also helps with policy conformance by providing regular updates once your network has been configured and is operational.

If you need further fine-grained programmability for your in-depth network tasks, you can also use the software-defined REST APIs to give you more system versatility and flexibility.

Finally, these switches help reduce both the amount and the complexity of any manual IT operation tasks that have to be performed. They’re designed to accommodate adds, moves and any changes that align with the provided data sheets, and you can do this via colorless ports that support either local MAC Authentication or local user roles.

This represents an unprecedented level of power, performance and flexibility that will meet the needs of your application, regardless of how demanding or unusual they are.
