10-Gigabit Smart

Managed Switch Series

As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR understands the importance of a reliable and high performance network to SMB customers. 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 10G Smart Managed Switch series from NETGEAR presents the right solution for this requirement; delivering unprecedented non-blocking 10-Gigabit bandwidth at an affordable cost.

10-Gigabit Smart Managed Switch Series

NETGEAR's ProSAFE® XS712T and ProSAFE® XS728T are powerful Smart Managed Switches that come with either 12/24 10-Gigabit Copper ports and either 2 Combo SFP+ (XS712T) or 4 additional Dedicated SFP+ ports (XS728T) for 10G Fiber links.

NETGEAR's 10G Smart Managed Switches are purposely designed as a cost-effective way to provide 10G connections to 10G capable servers and NAS (Network Attached Storage) systems. They can be used at the "centre of a small business network" or as an aggregation/ access switch in a larger organisation including workgroup access, connecting to a 10G NETGEAR ProSAFE® M7100/M7300 Fully Managed Switch on one end and extending the 10G connections to the edge.

Comprehensive L2+/Layer 3 Lite Features

  • Advanced VLAN features such as Protocol-based VLAN, MAC-based (Media Access Control) VLAN and 802.1x Guest VLAN
  • Advanced QoS (Quality of Service) with L2/L3/L4 awareness and 8 priority queues including Q-in-Q
  • Static Routing (including IPv6 on XS728T)
  • Private VLAN
  • Dynamic VLAN assignment
  • IGMP and MLD snooping
  • Advanced Security
  • IPv6 for management, QoS and ACL

10-Gigabit Transition with Base-T

  • 10GBase-T, like other Base-T technologies, uses the standard RJ-45 Ethernet jack
  • It is backward compatible, auto-negotiating between higher and lower speeds, thereby not forcing an all-at-once network equipment upgrade
  • CAT5/CAT5E are supported for Gigabit speeds up to 100m
  • CAT6 twisted pair copper cabling supports 10-Gigabit speeds up to 45m
  • CAT6A or newer CAT7 cabling will allow for up to 100m 10GBase-T connections

Designed as a Core Switch for SMB Networks

  • 10G connection to 10G-capable servers and network storage
  • Powerful L2+/Layer 3 Lite features make them the most cost-effective core switches for SMB and virtualisation environments
  • Future-proof your network with 10G bandwidth, advanced traffic management and comprehensive IPv6 support
  • Static routing helps to route internal traffic for more efficient use of network resources
  • IGMP and MLD snooping provide advanced multicast filtering

Acts as Aggregation Switch for Medium Sized Networks

  • 10-Gigabit switches help to resolve the congestion issue between network edge and core, which is caused by the broader adoption of Gigabit-to-the-desktop
  • 10-Gigabit Ethernet provides greater scalability than multiple Gigabit Ethernet links, resulting in a simplified and highly efficient network infrastructure
  • Up to eight 10-Gigabit Ethernet links can be aggregated into a virtual 80-Gbps connection
  • 10-Gigabit Ethernet reduces cabling complexity and uses existing cabling efficiently
