Industry's first10G Smart Switch, purposely designed for SMB with Cost-Effective 10GBase-T connectivity and Advanced L2+ Features
As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR understands the importance of a reliable and high performance network to the SMB customers. With the growth of virtualization, cloud-based services and applications like VoIP, video streaming and IP surveillance in the SMB space, SMB networks need to extend beyond simple reliability to higher speed and better performance. The 10G Smart Switch (XS712T) from NETGEAR presents the right solution for this requirement, delivering unprecedented non-blocking 10-Gigabit bandwidth at an affordable cost by using the 10Gbase-T technology.
The NETGEAR XS712T is a powerful smart switch that comes with 12 10-GBase-T copper ports and 2 Combo SFP+ for 10G Fiber links. It is purposely designed as a costeffective way to provide 10G connections to 10G-capable servers and NAS (Network Attached Storage). It can be used as a 10G access switch, uplink to 10G Managed switch (XSM7224) while expending the 10G connections down to the edge.
XS712T provides comprehensive L2 features in order to meet our customers’ current and future needs on virtualization, converged network and mobility. Some of the main features include:
- Advanced VLAN features such as Protocolbased VLAN and MAC-based VLAN- Advanced QoS (Quality of Service) with L2-L4 awareness and 8 priority queues- Static Routing- Private VLAN- Dynamic VLAN assignment- IGMP and MLD snooping- Advanced Security- IPv6 for management, QoS and ACL
10 Gigabit transition with Base-T10GBase-T, like other Base-T technologies, uses the standard RJ45 Ethernet jackIt is backward compatible, auto-negotiating between higher and lower speeds – thereby not forcing an all at once network equipment upgradeCat5/Cat5E are supported for Gigabit speeds; when Cat6 twisted pair copper cabling is minimum requirement for 10 Gigabit up to 30 metersCat6A or newer Cat7 cabling 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/L2+ features made it the most cost-effective core switch 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
