NETGEAR Intros 10 Gigabit Copper Switches for SMBs

NETGEAR has expanded its switching services with a full range of 10 Gigabit Copper (10GBASE-T) switches for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), government organizations, educational facilities and other networks supporting fewer than 500 users. The company has introduced three new switches(netgear.com/business/products/switches/) including the lightly managed ProSafe 8-port 10 Gigabit Plus Switch (XS708E) for small networks, the ProSafe 12-port 10 Gigabit Smart Switch (XS712T) for small and medium-sized networks and the ProSafe 24-port 10 Gigabit Copper M7100 series Managed Switch (XSM7224).

The NETGEAR ProSafe 24-Port 10 Gigabit Copper M7100 series Managed Switch (XSM7224) (www.netgear.com/managed/m7100) is the world’s first cost-effective 10GBASE-T departmental solution. The M7100 series (XSM7224) is ideal for installations requiring reliable, affordable and simple 10 Gigabit Ethernet top-of-rack server access layer in enterprise and campus-style networks and for high-density, high-performance 10GbE aggregation

Thanks to NETGEAR, small and medium businesses, agencies and educational facilities are no longer priced out of 10 Gigabit switching solutions. The NETGEAR ProSafe 12-port 10 Gigabit Smart Switch (XS712T) (www.netgear.com/10gigabit/XS712T), offers twelve 10GbE copper connectivity ports and two shared 10GbE fiber SFP+ ports as well as an extensive set of Layer 2 network features through the easy-to-use web-based management interface that comes in all NETGEAR Smart Switches.

It’s not only large businesses and government agencies that are experiencing network stress as a result of the proliferation of Big Data applications. The NETGEAR ProSafe 8-port 10 Gigabit Plus Switch (XS708E) (www.netgear.com/10gigabit/XS708E) provides eight 10G copper connectivity ports and one shared 10G fiber SFP+ port, at a very affordable price point comparable to enterprise switches. With 10GBASE-T, customers can use the standard RJ45 Ethernet jack and the Cat6 or Cat7 copper cable already broadly deployed within their existing network. The network speed can be improved tenfold from Gigabit to 10 Gigabit with minimal network changes.
