NETGEAR high-end Fully Managed Switches offer a secure, future-proof networking infrastructure–with integrated security, high availability, delivery optimisation and enhanced manageability, designed for enterprise and campus networks.
The NETGEAR M4300 Stackable Switch Series delivers L2/L3/L4 and IPv4/IPv6 cost-effective services for mid-enterprise edge with full PoE+ and SMB core deployments with unrivalled ease of use: 10 Gigabit models can seamlessly stack with 1 Gigabit models within the series, enabling spine and leaf line-rate stacking topologies. Non-stop forwarding (NSF) virtual chassis architectures provide advanced High Availability (HA) with hitless failover across the stack. Dual redundant, modular power supplies equipping full width models contribute to business continuity management. Layer 3 feature set includes static, dynamic and policy-based routing – as standard. Perfect for wireless access, unified communications and IP video, the NETGEAR M4300 Switch Series is also ready for the future, with Software-defined Network (SDN) and OpenFlow 1.3 enabled for your network.
Switches with Essential L2 Features for SMB Networks
NETGEAR Smart Managed Pro Switches offer powerful L2 and L2+/Layer 3 Lite features, great PoE functionality, and enhanced performance and usability. They are purposely designed for converged networks where voice, video, data are all carried on a single network platform. These switches are optimised for network efficiency, operational cost savings, and ease of management. These switches are the ideal solution even for the most advanced small and medium organisations looking for the best combination of features, performance, and value.
As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR® understands the importance of reliable and high performance networks. With the growth of virtualisation, cloud-based services and applications like VoIP, video streaming and IP surveillance, SMB networks need to extend beyond simple reliability to higher speed and performance. The 10-Gigabit Smart Managed Pro Switch series from NETGEAR presents the right solution for this requirement; delivering unprecedented non-blocking 10-Gigabit bandwidth at an affordable cost.
The Most Cost Efficient 10G Connectivity for SMB
The S3300 Series are a new generation of Gigabit Stackable Smart Managed Switches which have four (4) 10G ports, which can be used for uplinks and/or stacking between other S3300 switches. Mixed stacking with select M4300 10G switches (12X12F and 24X) allows 10G architecture that can both scale as organisation networks grows and be powerful enough for server and storage applications. As SMBs produce and consume more data, Gigabit to the desktop increasingly needs to be underpinned with 10GbE connectivity to the core to ensure a consistent, seamless user experience. This new generation of switches provides SMB customers with the most cost-effective 10G connections between the access and aggregation layer of the network.
Switches Designed For Scalability and Improved Resiliency
The ProSAFE® Stackable Smart Managed Switch series is unique in delivering the scalability, reliability, and performance growing small and medium-sized businesses need in an affordable and easy-to-manage package. The second generation of these Stackable Smart Managed Switches consists of 4 models in 28/52-port configurations. Each switch in the series comes with a total of 6 SFP ports for fiber connectivity. Among them, 2 are shared, and the other 4 are dedicated for either stacking or uplinks. This new generation of Stackable Smart Managed Switches offers two models that support PoE+ (up to 30W per port) allowing more flexible network deployments of PoE devices. The ProSAFE® Stackable Switch series offers the flexibility and scalability that will make it easier for growing businesses to seamlessly expand their network capacity.
An ideal companion to the rapidly emerging class of 10-Gigabit ready servers and network storage systems, this series of switches is designed to deliver scalability and maximum throughput in growing SMB networks. This series of products is equipped with four (4) 10G SFP+ ports for either stacking or uplink.
Plenty of headroom with 1G, 2.5G, 5G and even 10G!
Businesses need to be ready for future expansion: with incoming new multispeed devices, their wired network needs to expand its reach and scope to support speeds greater than 1 Gigabit. The IEEE 802.3bz standard paved the way for new 2.5 Gigabit and 5 Gigabit speeds in addition to legacy 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit per second. New servers, workstations, storage devices, and motherboards are coming with 802.3bz (NBASE-T) Multi-Gigabit Ethernet for 2.5X to 5X faster speeds up to 100 meters (323 feet) on legacy Cat5E / Cat6 cables.
That is why NETGEAR launched its new 8-Port Multi-Gigabit Smart Managed Pro Switches with 10G Copper/Fiber Uplinks. Each port automatically detects which speed is needed by the connected device and provides the adequate speed. As opposed to regular 10-Gigabit switches that will only provide 1-Gigabit connectivity to any device that require less than 10-Gigabit, the MS510TX and MS510TXPP give the exact speed required, with no downgrade. Also, the new NETGEAR Multi-speed switch ports can connect regular CAT5e Ethernet cables, without the need to upgrade to CAT6 wiring, therefore reducing wiring costs and hassle.
