Leading the Industry with the 2nd Generation of 10-Gigabit Web Managed (Plus) Switches, Purposely Designed for SMB with Cost-Effective 10GBASE-T Connectivity and Basic L2 Management Features
As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR® continues to lead the networking industry with its 2nd Generation of ProSAFE® 10-Gigabit Web Managed (Plus) Switches. The XS708Ev2 and XS716E are the market’s most cost efficient 10-Gigabit switches. Built for SMBs, workgroups, and even home offices, the XS708Ev2 provides 8 (eight) 10-Gigabit Copper ports and 1 Shared (Combo) Copper/SFP+ fibre port, while the XS716E provides 16 (sixteen) 10-Gigabit Copper ports and 1 Shared (Combo) Copper/SFP+ fibre port, all at an affordable price.
These 10-Gigabit Web Managed switches are purposely designed as a cost-effective way to provide 10G connections to 10G-capable servers and NAS (Network Attached Storage) systems, and to meet current and future needs on virtualisation, converged networking, and mobi, removing the bottlenecks created by the proliferation of Gigabit-to-the-desktop and the explosion of wireless devices on the network.
As part of the ProSAFE Web Managed (Plus) switch product family, the XS708Ev2 and XS716E 10-Gigabit Ethernet switches come with configurable L2 network features such as VLAN, QoS, IGMP snooping, port trunking/link aggregation and rate limiting. These features help to further optimize business network performance, delivering great value and empowering the SMB network. Both switches feature an easy-to use web browser-based management GUI in addition to plug-and-play connectivity.
The XS708Ev2 and XS716E are ideal switches for SMBs in need of simple and affordable 10-Gigabit Ethernet connectivity into their 10G-capable servers and storage devices. Either can be used at the “centre of a small business or home office network” or as an aggregation/access switch in a larger organization, connecting to a 10-Gigabit NETGEAR ProSAFE Fully Managed Switch on one end andending the 10G connections to the edge. They are also ideal for smaller workgroups that need high bandwidth for sharing, collaborating, editing, and publishing high-density content like video or animation. Customers can use Cat6 or Cat7 copper cables with standard RJ45 Ethernet jacks that are already widely used in their current network. Network speeds can improve up to 10x going from traditional Gigabit to 10-Gigabit with minimal network changes and upgrades.
