HP JL355A Aruba 2540 48Port Gigabit Ethernet 4SFP+ Switch *Brand New Box Damage*

This item is Brand New with Minor Box Damage
Just like you get in any retail store. Never used, factory sealed, comes with all accessories. Also with minor box damage.

With support for both static and RIP routing protocols, the JL355A Aruba IOT Ready 2540 48-Port Gigabit Ethernet 4SFP+ Switch from HP is a versatile and reliable networking solution. This switch comes equipped with 48 autosensing Gigabit Ethernet ports along with a single dual-personality serial console port that can be configured as either a RJ-45 port or micro-B USB port. Inside the Aruba JL354A you will find a 1016 MHz dual core ARM Cortex A9 CPU along with 1GB of DDR3 SDRAM and a 12.38 MB packet buffer to ensure smooth operation when the switch is operating at maximum capacity. The JL355A is capable of handling a heavy workload as it features a 176 Gbps switching capacity, a throughput of up to 112.0 Mpps, and a MAC address table capable of supporting up to 16,384 entries.

Once installed, users benefit from a variety of network features covering everything from wired and wireless connectivity to Quality of Service, connectivity, network management and more. This HP Aruba switch features the ClearPass Policy Manager support designed for use with both wired and wireless policies making it easy to manage connections to a variety of devices. Intuitive QoS functionality includes support for the 802.1p network standard to prioritize network traffic, support for Layer 4 prioritization, rate limiting on a per-port basis, and more. Connectivity features include auto-MDIX support, IPv6 compatibility, and more. Managing the network has also been simplified as the JL354A offers support for the SNMP v1, v2, and v3, zero touch provisioning, the option to utilize dual flash images, troubleshooting ingress, and more.

To secure the network HP has included a variety of security features in this Aruba switch. Multiple user authentication methods allow for a variety of avenues for users to access the network including a browser based method, MAC-based authentication, and 802.1X authentication. Other security features include access control lists, source-port filtering, secure shell encryption, port security, and more.

* IEEE 802.1AB Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) facilitates easy mapping using network management applications with LLDP automated device discovery protocol
* LLDP-MED (Media Endpoint Discovery) defines a standard extension of LLDP that stores values for parameters such as QoS and VLAN to configure automatically network devices such as IP phones
* Local MAC Authentication assigns attributes such as VLAN and QoS using locally configured profile that can be a list of MAC prefixes

Resiliency and High Availability:

* IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree provides high link availability in multiple VLAN environments by allowing multiple spanning trees; provides legacy support for IEEE 802.1d and IEEE 802.1w
* IEEE 802.3ad link-aggregation-control protocol (LACP) and port trunking support up to 26 static, dynamic, or distributed trunks with each trunk having up to eight links (ports) per static trunk
* SmartLink provides easy-to-configure link redundancy of active and standby links


* SNMPv1, v2, and v3 provide complete support of SNMP; provide full support of industry-standard Management Information Base (MIB) plus private extensions; SNMPv3 supports increased security using encryption
* Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) simplifies installation of the switch infrastructure using the Aruba Activate-based or a DHCP-based process with AirWave Network Management
* Aruba Central support cloud-based management platform offers a simple, secure, and cost-effective way to manage switches


* Dual flash images provide independent primary and secondary operating system files for backup while upgrading
* Friendly port names allow assignment of descriptive names to ports
* Find-Fix-Inform finds and fixes common network problems automatically, then informs administrator
* Multiple configuration files allow multiple configuration files to be stored to a flash image

Product Grading Guide

Brand New Sealed

Just like you get in any retail store. Never used, factory sealed, comes with all accessories.

Brand New Open Box

A brand new item whose seal has been broken. The product otherwise has not been used.

A-Grade Refurbished

Grade "A" products will have overall excellent to very good cosmetic condition. Some Grade "A"units will be cosmetically pristine while others may have light scratches or other minor blemishes. Some Laptops may exhibit some shiny areas around the keyboard (space bar, touchpad and/or touchpad buttons), but the keyboard keys will be in excellent condition. Cosmetic blemishes will have no impact to the system's overall functionality or performance.

B-Grade Refurbished

These units will have some cosmetic blemishes that include scratches and/or other surface imperfections. Some Laptops may exhibit shiny keys on the keyboard and/or shiny surfaces around the keyboard. All key characters will be legible. Grade "B" products are functionally equivalent to Grade "A", and will include the same warranty and customer support as Grade "A"products. Pricing on grade "B" products will typically be lower than grade "A" products.

For Parts/Repair or "As Is"

These units are worth fixing as they would make a nice system once the issue(s) are fixed. The components (screen, hard drive, keyboard, memory, adapter) could also be salvageable for use by repair Companies and individuals. This category is not for the average computer user.

Note: Widgetree does not cosmetically grade the bottom side of laptops.
