Netgear Launches 10-Gigabit 16-Port Web Managed Switch In Oz
Netgear has launched its Netgear ProSAFE XS716E 16-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet Web Managed (Plus) Switch, designed for small and medium-sized businesses, in the Australian market.
The ProSAFE XS716E is decked out with 16 10G copper connectivity ports, with one shared (combination) 10G SFP+ fibre port.
“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,” Netgear states. “The network speed can be improved tenfold from Gigabit to 10-Gigabit with minimal network changes.”
The ProSAFE XS716E also sports a number features for optimising network performance, including VLAN support, QoS, IGMP snooping, port trunking/link aggregation, rate limiting and traffic monitoring.
“The potent combination of big data applications, cloud services, mobile devices and the deployment of 802.11ac Wi-Fi is putting severe stress on networks, and not only at the enterprise level,” Richard Jonker, Netgear vice president of product line management for SMB products, commented.
“We’ve designed our 10-Gigabit switching products like the XS716E 16-port Ethernet Web Managed Switch to help price-sensitive small and medium-sized customers who are eager to implement 10-Gigabit solutions to improve network capacity, speed and performance, but who have been shut out by cost until now.”
Available now, the ProSAFE XS716E is priced at $2,549 RRP.
