6300M airflow direction

  • 1.  6300M airflow direction

    Posted Jan 19, 2021 10:27 AM
    I am looking at the 48 port non-POE model of 6300M.
    Aruba 6300M 48-port 1GbE and 4-port SFP56 Switch (JL663A)
    Aruba 6300M 48-port 1GbE and 4-port SFP56 Power-to-Port 2 Fan Trays 1 PSU Bundle (JL762A)

    What is the airflow direction for the JL663A model?  I can see the JL762A model is power to port which would be good for top of server rack installation.

    Hi! Aruba 6300M chassis uses a fixed "Front & Side to Back airflow" cooling method (with 3 non-serviceable or 4 serviceable fans placed on the right side of the chassis's back).

    Edit: added fixed to emphasize the fact that the airflow can't be changed, thanks Alexis for the highlight!

    JL762A has been introduced specifically for OOBM aggregation for datacenter racks, with power-to-port airflow.
    JL663A, like any other 6300 (except JL762A) has port-to-power + side-to-power air-flow.
