Powerful 10G Connections for Stacking and Uplink to Servers and Network Storage Systems
An ideal companion to the rapidly emerging class of 10-Gigabit servers, the NETGEAR Gigabit Stackable Smart Managed Switches (TXS) are the industry’s first smart managed switches with 10-Gigabit connectivity – delivering maximum throughput in SMB networks for demanding tasks such as data replication and backup, virtualization, video on demand and high-volume transaction processing. At less than half the cost of a managed switch, this series of switches provides 24 and 48 gigabit ports for connecting devices to the network, along with four 10GE SFP+ ports for stacking or uplink to servers. The switches within this series are able to be mixed and matched in the same stack. As many as six switches can be stacked for a total of up to 300 network ports, with full redundancy for unsurpassed reliability. These switches offer a rich enterprise-class feature set, including advanced traffic management and security, yet can be easily configured and monitored through a web-based graphical user interface.
Flexible Management Options
As a Smart Managed switch, IT administrators can decide how to manage the switches. Individual switches can be managed through a simple browser-based graphical user interface. The series of switches can also be managed through SNMP software for compatibility with existing SNMP-based consoles. For larger networks, the NETGEAR Smart Control Center can be used. It is a free Windows-based application for discovering, configuring and upgrading multiple smart managed switches across the network. Like all NETGEAR Smart Managed Switches, the Stackable Smart Managed Switch is backed by the NETGEAR ProSAFE® Lifetime Warranty, and 1-Year ProSupport 24x7 Advanced Technical Support*.
