Overview:

Unlock your Network Potential with 10-Gigabit/ Multi-Gigabit 5-Speed Networking Switches

Revolutionary 5-speed 10-Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit technology built in the NETGEAR multi-speed switches allows your devices to speed past the Gigabit barrier.

With the growth of virtualization, flash Storage, 4K videos , video streaming and IP surveillance, SMB networks need to extend beyond 1 Gigabit barrier. The 10-Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit Smart Managed Plus series from NETGEAR presents the right solution for this requirement; delivering unprecedented 10-Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit bandwith at an affordable cost.

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 XS512EM and XS724EM gives the exact speed required, no downgrade. Also, the new NETGEAR Multi-speed switch ports can be connected with regular Cat5E Ethernet cables, without the need to upgrade to Cat6/Cat6A wiring, therefore reducing wiring costs and hassle.

Features and Benefits:

Hardware Features: Benefits:
10-Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit support Each copper interface supports 100M/1G/2.5G/5G/10G giving the exact speed required to any device regardless of the cable that´s been used.
Active Fans Active Fans make the XS512EM and XS724EM silent switches, well below offices ambient background noise.
10GBASE-X SFP+ ports Providing flexibility to uplink to 10G-capable core or aggregation switches that support fiber links. Backward compatible to Gigabit fiber. Support copper or fiber modules.
Rackmount or desktop Flexible deployment for either rackmount or desktop placement.
Software Features: Benefits:
Port-based and 802.1Q-based VLANs Segment network into smaller groups for more secure and efficient use of network resources.
Comprehensive QoS features:
  • Port-based or 802.1p-based prioritization
  • Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
  • Port-based ingress and egress rate limiting
Advanced controls for optimized network performance and better delivery of mission-critical traffic such as voice and video. Ingress and egress rate limiting allows for bandwidth shaping for mitigating network resources constraints or for optimizing guest access bandwidth on the network.
IGMP Snooping For improved network efficiency on delivering multicast traffic. Save cost and improve network efficiency by ensuring multicast traffic only reaches designated receivers without the need of an extra multicast router.
Link Aggregation ( Static LAG and LACP) Build up bigger bandwidth to support aggregated uplink/downlink traffic or to provide redundant link(s) using Static Manual LAGs or LACP.
Voice VLAN The feature enables auto assignment of voice traffic (based on OUI) to a special VLAN (AKA Voice VLAN); allowing the assignment of special QoS parameters to that traffic, giving it high priority services. Port has to be MANUALLY assigned to be a member of the Voice VLAN.
Loop detection and auto DoS prevention Detect accidental network loops and protect against DoS attacks.
Port Mirroring For better and quicker network diagnostics and troubleshooting.
Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) For maximum power savings and reduced energy costs.
Cable Test Easily identify bad Ethernet cables.

Cables and Speeds

The following table describes the network cables that you can use for the switch connections and the speeds that the cables can support, up to 100 meters (328 feet).

Speed Cable Type
100 Mbps Category 5 (Cat 5) or higher rated
1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, or 5 Gbps Category 5e (Cat 5e) or higher rated
10 Gbps Category 6A (Cat 6A) or higher rated

Note: For speeds of 10 Gbps, if the cable length is shorter than 55 meters (180 feet), you can use a Category 6 (Cat 6) cable.

Why the NETGEAR 10-Gig/Multi-Gig Switches are ideal for SMB?

  1. 5-speed Networking Expand your network instantly and give your devices either 100Mb, 1, 2.5, 5 or 10-Gigabit automatically,
  2. Security to protect the SMB networks for possible threats thanks to Auto DoS and Storm Control.
  3. Visibility to identify any possible cable issues or abnormal traffic behavior with cable health test and port statistics.
  4. Enhanced Control to improve your network performance with VLAN, QoS and Multicast Support.
  5. Reliability to assure that the SMB networks are up and running we introduced Link Aggregation and Loop Prevention to minimize possible downtimes.
