NETGEAR unveils two new switches to scale wireless-AC networks

NEW DELHI: Global networking company NETGEAR has introduced two new ProSAFE 10Gigabit (10G) switching platforms ─ ProSAFE M4200 and M4300 Managed Intelligent Edge Series ─ each of which offers industry first capabilities for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) looking to scale their Wave 2 Wireless-AC networks. 

The press release indicates that ProSA FE M4200 Managed Intelligent Edge Series offers the world’s first full power Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+) 8×2.5Gigabit and 2x10Gigabit distribution switch for Wave 2 Wireless-AC Access Points. It’s fully non-blocking, easier to deploy, and more affordable than market alternatives.

The company explains that ProSAFE M4300 Managed Intelligent Edge Series is the world’s first stackable platform with edge-to-core 10Gigabit stacking from 24-port 1G to 48-port 10G, including PoE+ full provisioning. Competing solutions for the SMB typically do not offer simple stacking using 10G ports, and require costly proprietary stacking kits.

Both Series offer future-ready design with SDN support, and enable resilient unified 10Gigabit (10G) wired and wireless network deployments easily and affordably, for improved delivery of rich applications.
