AOS Switches power consumption

  • 1.  AOS Switches power consumption

    Posted 12 days ago

    Hi,

    With regards to the power consumption values provided (without PoE devices connected, i.e. base values)

    • J9821 –                 363 W
    • JL003A-                423 W
    • JL001A-                630 W
    • JL074A-                 145W
    • JL-073A-               105W

    Are these peak values or nominal values or average values?

    Regards,
    Brian

    Hi!

    Let's see the first SKU you asked for: J9821...well, first of all, it is probably the J9821A...if so that SKU represents a bundle made of:

    • 1 Aruba 5406R zl2 Switch chassis with 6 free slots (J9821A)
    • 1 Aruba 5400R zl2 Management Module (J9827A)
    • 1 Aruba 5406R zl2 Switch Fan Tray (J9831A)
    • No Power Supply (min 1 unit, max 2 units)

    So...where you found 363 Watts value?

    The power consumption in "idle" mode (no interface connected, no PoE supplied) should also consider eventually:

    • At least one MM (J9827A) or at best two MMs
    • At least one PS Unit or, at best, two PS Units
    • Quantity and Type of I/O Module(s) installed

    Only then the power calculation will be reasonable. I don't believe a 5406 chassis with one MMs and one PS drains 363 Watts at idle.
