16-Port 10Gb Ethernet Managed Switch

Designed as a Core Switch for SMB Networks
As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR® understands the importance of reliable and high performance networks. With the growth of virtualization, cloud-based services and applications like VoIP, video streaming and IP surveillance, SMB networks need to extend beyond simple reliability to higher speed and performance. The 10–Gigabit Smart Managed Switch series from NETGEAR presents the right solution for this requirement; delivering unprecedented non-blocking 10–Gigabit bandwidth at an affordable cost.

The NETGEAR ProSAFE® XS708T, XS716T, XS728T, and XS748T are powerful Smart Managed Switches that come with 8, 16, 24, or 44 10–Gigabit Copper ports and either 2 Shared (Combo) Copper/SFP+ ports (XS708T/XS716T) or 4 additional Dedicated SFP+ ports (XS728T/XS748T) for 10G Fiber links. The NETGEAR 10–Gigabit Smart Managed Switches are purposely designed as a cost-effective way to provide 10G connections to 10G-capable servers and NAS (Network Attached Storage) systems. They can be used at the "center of a small business network" or as an aggregation / access switch in a larger organization including workgroup access, connecting to a 10‑Gigabit NETGEAR ProSAFE Fully Managed Switch on one end and extending the 10G connections to the edge. The XS708T and XS716T are also ideal for smaller workgroups that need high bandwidth for sharing, collaborating, editing, and publishing high-density content like video or animation.
Sixteen 10GBase–T Connections
Support low–latency, line–rate 10G Copper "Base–T" technology with backward compatibility to Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet. Cost–Effectively migrate current network to 10G capacity by utilizing the existing Cat6 RJ45 short connections (up to 300m) and Cat6A / Cat 7 connections up to 100m.
Two Combo SFP+ 10G Fiber Ports
Backward compatible to Gigabit fiber. Providing flexibility to uplink to 10G-capable core or aggregation switches that support fiber links..
Dynamic VLAN Assignment
IP phones and PCs can authenticate on the same port but under different VLAN assignment policies. Users are free to move around and enjoy the same level of network access regardless of their physical location in the network.
