Designed for a wide range of SMBs, the NETGEAR ProSAFE XS716T smart managed switch is a Layer 2 / Layer 3 Lite static switching option that can be just as easily deployed as a top-rack solution, or as a specialized aggregation switch to reduce network bottlenecks in mid-sized networks.
The sixteen 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports are fully backwards compatible with older 100/1000 Ethernet hardware, with auto-negotiation for each connected device. Two combo copper/fiber BaseX SFP+ ports provide uplinks. For greater downstream bandwidth demands, up to 8 ports can be link aggregated into a single virtual connection.
NETGEAR makes life easier for administrators, with a full range of onboard optimizations including L2, L3, and L4-aware Quality-of-Service functions. The XS716T also includes auto-identification functions for video/voice-over-IP devices, to speed Unified Communications deployment.
This 16 port PoE switch offers significant ROI, with low TCO, because it's easy to re-purpose and move around an office. As your needs grow, it can move from the top rack to a local office with only minor reconfiguration. Plus, you get NETGEAR's industry-best warranty, including lifetime hardware replacements and online chat support.
