Netgear M4300 XSM4348S 48x 10G Stackable Managed Switch with 24x 10GBASE-T and 24x SFP+
The M4300 series scales from 24x1G to 48x10G and up to 384 ports per stack. Nonstop forwarding, spine and leaf, edge to core connectivity for unified wired and wireless networks. Unstoppable operation with management unit hitless failover and no service interruption for the clients connected to the other switches in the stack.
• All (48) 10G ports are independent and 1G backward compatible for progressive transition to 10G speeds.
• With 960 Gbps non-blocking fabric, M4300-24X24F delivers L2/L3/L4 and IPv4/IPv6 rich services for virtualisation (Auto-iSCSI prioritisation), server / storage interconnect and SMB core applications.
• Virtual Chassis stacking provides non-stop forwarding (NSF) and hitless failover for highest availability (HA).
• Dual redundant, modular power supplies contribute to business continuity management.
• 10 Gigabit models seamlessly stack with 1 Gigabit models enabling line-rate spine and leaf topologies.
PoE deployment at the edge
Common for intermediate distribution frames (IDF) in K-12, horizontal or vertical ring stacking topologies greatly simplify Power over Ethernet deployments at the edge and bring network resiliency with distributed 10G uplinks in aggregation to the core.
Top-of-rack and server installations
For midsize server installations, two half-width M4300 10 Gigabit models can be paired in an effective single rack space for redundant top-of-rack. Non-stop switching, non-stop routing stacking technology ensures no single point of failure for servers connecting to the stack.
Spine and Leaf topologies
For typical collapsed core installations with a variety of 1G and 10G access ports in high performance local area networks, M4300 10G models can stack with M4300 1G models creating 'spine and leaf' topologies, reducing oversubscription, even enabling line-rate aggregation to the spine. Features Key features:
• Cost effective 1G access layer in campus LAN networks, and high performance 10G distribution layer for midsize organizations networks.
• Advanced Layer 2, Layer 3 and Layer 4 feature set - no license required - including Policy Based Routing, RIP, VRRP, OSPF and PIM.
• Innovative mixed "Spine and Leaf", 1G and 10G stacking with nonstop forwarding and hitless failover redundancy.
• Low acoustics, half-width 16-port and 24-port 10G models can be paired in a single rack space for redundant Top of Rack.
• Up to 384 (Gigabit) ports, or 384 (10 Gigabit) ports, or a combination of both in a single logical switch.
• PoE+ (30 watts per port) with hot swap, redundant power supplies and full provisioning.
• 48-port 10G models ultra-low latency and scalable table size with 128K MAC, 8K ARP/NDP, 4K VLANs, 12K routes.
• Mixed Stack of 1G and 10G models provides 16K MAC, 2K ARP/NDP, 4K VLANs and 512 routes.
• SDN-Ready OpenFlow 1.3 support for maximum investment protection.

It’s good to talk, but the way in which we get in touch with each other is changing. When once a letter, or a phone call over a shared line were the only ways to keep in touch with friends and relatives, there is now e-mail, instant messaging and text messages. The humble telephone isn’t sitting idly by, however. Telephony is evolving and it is using the Internet to keep up with the competition.

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.
