S2500 Series S2500 Series Support

For wired network deployments in large branch offices

The S2500 Mobility Access Switch from Aruba Networks® extends role-based user access, security and operational simplicity to wired networks.


The Aruba Networks S2500 Mobility Access Switch is a class of product that brings user role-based access to wired networks.

Like other Mobility Access Switches, the S2500 is an integral part of the Aruba Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture, which delivers secure virtualized access services to users, independent of their location, access method, device or application.

The S2500 Mobility Access Switch is available in four models with 24 or 48 10/100/1000BASE-T ports and four fixed Gigabit Ethernet/10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink and stacking ports. Power-over- Ethernet (PoE) models are available supporting up to 30 watts per port based on the IEEE 802.3af (PoE) and 802.3at (PoE+) standards.

The S2500 connects up to 384 Gigabit Ethernet devices such as virtual desktops, IP phones, videophones, classroom peripherals, medical devices, point-of-sale devices and security cameras as well as any 802.11n Wi-Fi access point (AP). Its compact form factor and quiet operation make it ideal for deployment in branch offices and small offices.
