Title: Aruba 3810M Switch Series Competitive Performance, Power Consumption and TCO Evaluation versus Cisco Catalyst 3850

Publication date:   21 June 2016
Document number:    216122


The new generation of collaborative digital workplaces, a surge in IoT devices, and the increased speed of doing business on mobile are leading to questions regarding the readiness of network infrastructure. Aruba’s mobile-first approach focuses on software-powered innovation to differentiate itself from traditional hardware-focused solutions — integrating the wired and wireless infrastructure, giving network operators insights into network performance, and enabling security amidst the growing number of mobile and IoT devices.

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, commissioned Tolly to evaluate the performance, power consumption and total cost of ownership (TCO) of its stackable Aruba 3810M switch and compare that with the Cisco Catalyst 3850. The Aruba 3810M Switch Series delivered better performance with 51% lower latency than the Cisco Catalyst 3850 in standalone switch configuration across all frame/packet sizes tested in tests of Layer 2 switching. With respect to cost, the Aruba 3810M solution not only has lower initial costs but provides ongoing savings through more efficient use of power and cost-effective support.
