Leading the industry with the 2nd generation of 10-Gigabit Smart Managed Switches, Purposely Designed for SMB with Cost-Effective 10GBASE-T Connectivity and Advanced L2+/ Layer 3 Lite Features
As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR understands the importance of reliable and high performance networks. With the growth of virtualization, 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 Switch series from NETGEAR presents the right solution for this requirement; delivering unprecedented non-blocking 10-Gigabit bandwidth at an affordable cost.
The NETGEAR ProSAFE XS708T, XS716T, XS728T, and XS748T are powerful Smart Managed Switches that come with 8, 16, 24, or 44 10-Gigabit Copper ports and either 2 Shared (Combo) Copper/SFP+ ports (XS708T/XS716T) or 4 additional Dedicated SFP+ ports (XS728T/XS748T) for 10G Fiber links. The NETGEAR 10-Gigabit 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 “center of a small business network” or as an aggregation / access switch in a larger organization including workgroup access, connecting to a 10-Gigabit NETGEAR ProSAFE Fully Managed Switch on one end and extending the 10G connections to the edge. The XS708T and XS716T are also ideal for smaller workgroups that need high bandwidth for sharing, collaborating, editing, and publishing high-density content like video or animation.
The ProSAFE 10G Smart Managed Switches provide comprehensive L2+/Layer 3 Lite features in order to meet current and future needs on virtualization, converged networking and mobility. Some of the main features include:
- Advanced VLAN features such as Protocolbased 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
- IPv4 and IPv6 static routing
- 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 RJ45 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 100 meters
- Cat6 twisted pair copper cabling supports 10-Gigabit speeds up to 45 meters
- Cat6a or newer Cat7 cabling will allow for up to 100 meter 10GBASE-T connections
Designed as Core Switch for SMB Network
- 10G connection to 10G-capable servers and network storages
- Powerful L2+/Layer 3 Lite features make them the most cost-effective core switches for SMB and virtualization environment
- 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, providing advanced multicast filtering
Act as Aggregation Switch for Mediumsized Network
- 10G switch helps to resolve the congestion issue between network edge and core, which is caused by the boarder adoption of Gigabit-to-the-desktop
- 10 Gigabit Ethernet provides greater scalability than multiple Gigabit Ethernet links, resulting in a simplified and highlyefficient 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

At a Glance:
|10GBASE-T Copper Ethernet connections||Support low-latency, line-rate 10G Copper “BASE-T” technology with backward compatibility to Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet. Cost-effectively migrate current network to 10G capacity by utilizing the existing Cat6 RJ45 short connections (up to 30m) and Cat6a/Cat7 connections up to 100m.|
|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.|
|USB Configuration Port||Quickly and conveniently upgrade or restore firmware, load or backup configuration files, or download system log files for troubleshooting.|
|Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az)||Maximum power reduction for ongoing operation cost savings.|
|Comprehensive IPv6 Support for Management, ACL and QoS||Build current network with future in mind. Ensure investment protection and a smooth migration to an IPv6-based network without switch replacement.|
|IPv4 & IPv6 Static Routing||A simple way to provide segmentation of the network with internal routing through the switch – reserving the router for external traffic routing only, making the entire network more efficient.|
|Robust security features:
||Build a secured, converged network with all types of traffic by preventing external attacks and blocking malware while allowing secure access for authorized users.|
|Comprehensive QoS features:
||Advanced controls for optimized network performance and better delivery of mission-critical traffic such as voice and video.|
|Auto-VoIP, Auto-Voice VLAN, and Auto-Video VLAN||Automatic Voice over IP prioritization (Auto-VoIP) simplifies most complex multi-vendor IP telephone deployments either based on protocols (SIP, H.323 and SCCP) or on OUI bytes (default database and user-based OUIs) in the phone source MAC address, providing the best class of service to VoIP streams (both data and signaling) over other ordinary traffic by classifying traffic, and enabling correct egress queue configuration. Similarly, Auto-Video VLAN enables IGMP snooping to minimize broadcast streams.|
|IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping||Facilitate fast receiver joins and leaves for multicast streams. Save cost and improve network efficiency by ensuring multicast traffic only reaches designated receivers without the need of an extra multicast router|
|Protected Ports||Ensure no exchange of unicast, broadcast, or multicast traffic between the protected ports on the switch, thereby improving the security of your converged network. This allows your sensitive phone phone conversations to stay private and your surveillance video clips can be forwarded to their designated storage device without leakage or alteration.|
|DHCP Snooping||Ensure IP address allocation integrity by only allowing DHCP messages from trusted DHCP servers and dropping malformed DHCP messages with a port or MAC address mismatch.|
|Dynamic VLAN Assignment (RADIUS)||IP phones and PCs can authenticate on the same port but under different VLAN assignment policies. Users are free to move around and enjoy the same level of network access regardless of their physical location on the network.|
|Private VLAN||Private VLANs help reduce broadcast with added security.|
|Dual Firmware Images and Configuration Files||Dual firmware images and dual configuration files for transparent firmware updates/configuration changes with minimum service interruption.|
