Flexible Uplink Modules

The uplink speed and capacity can be changed by adding or removing the uplink modules. The Flexible Uplink Modules (FUP) that are supported on these switches are JL078A, JL081A, and JL083A modules. The speed and the number of ports depend on the selected uplink module.

All physically inserted flexible modules are auto-detected when you boot a 2930M switch with the default configuration (factory reset).

Flexible Ports

The following types of flexible modules are supported on the 2930M switch series:

  • Aruba 2930M 1-port QSFP+ 40GbE Module (JL078A)
