NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR) is introducing a powerful addition to its second-generation Smart Managed Switching product offering for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) — the NETGEAR 12-Port 10-Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Pro Switch (XS712Tv2). The new switch joins the NETGEAR Standalone Smart Managed Pro family, purposely built for converged networks where voice, video, data are all carried on a single network platform. These switches are optimized to provide small and medium-size growing organizations, with what they value most in their IT infrastructure — network efficiency, operational cost savings, and ease of management.

NETGEAR offers its Smart Managed Pro 10-Gigabit Ethernet Switches in a variety of port densities — from 48 ports for medium-sized networks down to just 8 ports for small businesses. They can be used at the center of a small network or as an aggregation/access switch in a larger organization including workgroup access, connecting to a 10-Gigabit NETGEAR Fully Managed Switch on one end and extending the 10 Gigabit connection to the edge. The 12-port Switch launching today is an ideal switch for smaller workgroups that need high bandwidth for sharing, collaborating, editing, and publishing high-density content like 4K video or animation.”

The new XS712Tv2 Smart Managed Pro Switch provides cost-effective 10GBASE-T connectivity, IPv6 management, and comprehensive L2+/Layer 3 Lite features to address bandwidth bottlenecks. Businesses can meet current and future needs for virtualization, converged networking, cloud access and mobility. It offers the web browser-based management interface of other NETGEAR switches for easy network configuration, as well as the same green Ethernet features for maximum power savings.

Key features include:

  • 12 x 10-Gigabit Copper 10GBASE-T ports with 2 shared (combo) 10-Gigabit Fiber SFP+ ports for connections to 10 Gigabit-capable servers and Network Attached Storage (NAS)
  • Non-blocking 240Gbps fabric for full duplex 12x10Gbps connectivity without congestion across all ports
  • Layer 3 static routing with 32 routes (IPv4 and IPv6) for interVLAN local routing
  • Configurable L2 network features such as VLANs, Rapid Spanning Tree, IGMP Snooping and Querier, IGMP Fast Leave
  • Advanced Smart Switching features such as IPv4/IPv6 Layer 3 static routing, DiffServ QoS policies, LACP Link Aggregation, Broadcast control, Denial of service protection
  • Advanced VLAN support for better network segmentation
  • Rate limiting and priority queuing for better bandwidth allocation
  • ProSAFE® Lifetime Hardware Warranty with Lifetime Next Business Day shipping for replacement and Lifetime Technical Support options

“We offer the broadest selection of smart managed switches in the industry, and this new 12-port model further expands the options available to SMB network managers so they can easily install the most cost-effective solution for their needs, with headroom to grow,” said Richard Jonker, vice president of product line management for SMB products at NETGEAR. “Even small businesses are experimenting with virtualization, cloud-based services and applications like video streaming, IP surveillance and Voice-over-IP. SMB networks need to support increasingly higher speeds and improved performance to keep operations humming along.”
