The NETGEAR ProSafe 10 Gigabit
Stackable Managed Switch, XSM7224S, allows for a flexible top-of-rack
infrastructure. All 24 ports of 10 Gigabit SFP+ interfaces are Gigabit/10
Gigabit capable and deliver wired speed performance with ultra low latency.
Four shared 10GBase-T interfaces broaden 10 Gigabit connectivity with auto-sensing
RJ45. Local/distant stacking provides versatile 10 Gigabit deployment
possibilities, such as Distributed (LACP) Aggregation for virtualized
servers and storage.
Combining superior resiliency, enterprise-class security, and non-blocking
performance, the XSM7224S offers a full set of Layer 2 management features,
as well as Layer 2+ (Layer 3 lite – IPv4 routing) with unsurpassed
affordability. Together with VLAN routing, voice-class prioritization, and
chassis-like stacking, the XSM7224S can be deployed as a data center Top-of-Rack
switch, or closer to the core of small and medium businesses’ growing
networks, as a distribution layer 10 Gigabit Ethernet aggregation switch.
L3 Scalability (available
in Q1 2011)
The Layer 3 upgrade license XSM7224L unlocks the IPv4/IPv6 dynamic routing
capabilities of the XSM7224S. Purposely built for Enterprise networks and
core / aggregation layers of SMB networks, an L3 upgraded XSM7224S provides
advanced routing protocols such as OSPF, VRRP, and multicast for converged
Data Center Availability
The NETGEAR Stackable, Managed 10 Gigabit Switch XSM7224S comes with a
removable power module for the main power supply with a second internal
redundant power supply available as an option. Two removable fan trays
increase the availability of the system, providing front-to-back cooling
airflow for best compatibility with data center hot aisle / cold aisle
airflow patterns. Like all NETGEAR ProSafe Managed Switches, the XSM7224S is
backed by the NETGEAR ProSafe Lifetime Warranty.
