Product Review

The Aruba S3500-4X10G Uplink Module provides flexible connectivity options with fixed 4x1000BASE-X/10GBASE-X SFP/SFP+ interfaces, supporting a wide range of network speeds and allowing for scalable network designs. However, the device's noise level increases significantly from 42 dB to 55 dB with dual AC power supplies, which could be a concern in quieter environments. Additionally, its capability to handle up to 8,000 unicast routes and 2,000 multicast routes, along with support for up to 4,094 VLANs and jumbo frames up to 9,216 bytes, makes it suitable for high-demand network infrastructures, though the requirement to purchase SFP/SFP+ modules separately may increase the overall investment.


The Aruba S3500-4X10G is a networking module designed to enhance the connectivity and performance of enterprise networks. It features an uplink module with four Gigabit Ethernet ports, providing high-speed network connections. This module is well-suited for environments requiring efficient, high-capacity data transfers, such as data centers and large corporate offices. The Aruba S3500-4X10G supports both 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP/SFP+ for fiber connections and includes a 50 cm direct-attach cable (DAC) for ArubaStack, facilitating easy and efficient stacking of multiple units to increase network capacity without compromising on performance. The device's dimensions are compact, with a height of 1.75 inches (4.4 cm), a width of 17.5 inches (44.5 cm), and a depth of 17.5 inches (44.5 cm), extending to 19.5 inches (495.3 mm) with a 1,050-watt power supply, making it suitable for rack mounting in standard server racks. Operational efficiency is maintained across a wide range of environmental conditions. The S3500-4X10G operates effectively at temperatures ranging from 32°F (0°C) to 122°F (50°C) and can be stored in temperatures from -40°F (-40°C) to 158°F (70°C). Humidity tolerance ranges from 5% to 95% non-condensing, ensuring reliable performance in various climatic conditions. The unit is also designed to operate at altitudes up to 10,000 feet (3,048 meters), offering flexibility for deployment in diverse geographical locations. Acoustic noise levels are kept at a minimum, with 42 dB generated under standard operation with an AC power supply, and increasing to 55 dB when dual AC power supplies are used. This ensures that the Aruba S3500-4X10G does not contribute significantly to ambient noise levels, making it suitable for office environments. Key features include: - Dual internal, hot-swappable, redundant power supplies that ensure continuous operation and minimal downtime, enhancing the reliability of network infrastructures. - A fixed uplink interface with four ports that support both 1000BASE-X and 10GBASE-X SFP/SFP+ modules (purchased separately), providing flexibility in network design and connectivity options. - The ability to use direct-attach cables of various lengths (50 cm, 1 m, 3 m, or 7 m), allowing for customized deployment based on specific rack configurations and distances. Additional specifications highlight the device's capability to handle large volumes of network traffic with ease: - Support for up to 8000 unicast routes and 2000 multicast routes, ensuring efficient management of network traffic and resources. - Compliance with Reduction of Hazardous Substances 5 (RoHS-5), emphasizing the company's commitment to environmental sustainability. - Support for jumbo frames up to 9,216 bytes, facilitating the efficient transfer of large data packets across the network. - Capacity for up to 4,094 VLANs, enabling complex network segmentation and improved security and traffic management. The Aruba S3500-4X10G is engineered to meet the demands of modern network environments, providing high-speed connectivity, reliability, and operational efficiency. Its comprehensive features and specifications make it an ideal choice for businesses looking to upgrade or expand their network infrastructure.
