netgear sinagapore, Standalone Smart Switch Series

Industry’s First SMB Switch with 10-Gigabit Connectivity

As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR understands the importance of a reliable and high performance network. 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 series from NETGEAR presents the right solution for this requirement; delivering unprecedented non-blocking 10-Gigabit bandwidth at an affordable cost. The NETGEAR XS708E is a powerful smart switch that comes with 12 10G Base-T copper ports and 2 combo SFP+ for 10G Fiber links. It is purposely designed as a cost-effective way to provide 10G connections to 10G-capable servers and NAS (Network Attached Storage) systems. It can be used as a 10G access switch, uplink to a 10G Managed Switch (XSM7224) while expanding the 10G connections down to the edge.

he XS708E consists of eight 10GE copper ports and one combo 10GE Fiber SFP+ port. With 10GBased-T, 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 10Gigabit with minimal network changes and upgrades.

The XS708E belongs to the NETGEAR ProSAFE® Plus Switch Product family. On top of the plug-N-play 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, it also offers some fundamental network features that will help optimize the performance of business networks such as VLAN, QoS, IGMP Snooping, Link Aggregation (LAG), rate limiting and traffic monitoring. ProSAFE® Plus Switches are an upgrade from plug-and-play Unmanaged Switches, delivering great value and exceptional performance.

The XS708E 10GE ProSAFE® Plus Switch from NETGEAR is the ideal switch for SMBs considering simple and affordable 10GE connectivity into their 10GE-capable servers and storage devices.
