NETGEAR ProSafe logoOverview:

Leading the Industry with the 2nd Generation of 10-Gigabit Web Managed (Plus) Switches, Purposely Designed for SMB with Cost-Effective 10GBASE-T Connectivity and Basic L2 Management Features

As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR continues to lead the networking industry with its 2nd Generation of ProSAFE 10-Gigabit Web Managed (Plus) Switches. The XS708Ev2 and XS716E are the market's most cost efficient 10-Gigabit switches. Built for SMBs, workgroups, and even home offices, the XS708Ev2 provides 8 (eight) 10-Gigabit Copper ports and 1 Shared (Combo) Copper/SFP+ fiber port, while the XS716E provides 16 (sixteen) 10-Gigabit Copper ports and 1 Shared (Combo) Copper/SFP+ fiber port, all at an affordable price.

These 10-Gigabit Web Managed switches are purposely designed as a cost-effective way to provide 10G connections to 10G-capable servers and NAS (Network Attached Storage) systems, and to meet current and future needs on virtualization, converged networking, and mobility, removing the bottlenecks created by the proliferation of Gigabit-to-the-desktop and the explosion of wireless devices on the network.

As part of the ProSAFE Web Managed (Plus) switch product family, the XS708Ev2 and XS716E 10-Gigabit Ethernet switches come with configurable L2 network features such as VLAN, QoS, IGMP snooping, port trunking/link aggregation and rate limiting. These features help to further optimize business network performance, delivering great value and empowering the SMB network. Both switches feature an easy-touse web browser-based management GUI in addition to plug-and-play connectivity.

The XS708Ev2 and XS716E are ideal switches for SMBs in need of simple and affordable 10-Gigabit Ethernet connectivity into their 10G-capable servers and storage devices. Either can be used at the “center of a small business or home office network” or as an aggregation/access switch in a larger organization, connecting to a 10-Gigabit NETGEAR ProSAFE Fully Managed Switch on one end and extending the 10G connections to the edge. They are also ideal for smaller workgroups that need high bandwidth for sharing, collaborating, editing, and publishing high-density content like video or animation. Customers can use Cat6 or Cat7 copper cables with standard RJ45 Ethernet jacks that are already widely used in their current network. Network speeds can improve up to 10x going from traditional Gigabit to 10-Gigabit with minimal network changes and upgrades.


Configurable L2 Networking Features

ProSAFE 10-Gigabit Web Managed (Plus) Switches provide plug-and-play connectivity and additional configurable L2 network features including:

  • Port-based and 802.1Q-based VLAN support for traffic segmentation
  • Port-based and 802.1p/DSCP-based QoS (Quality of Service) for traffic prioritization
  • Auto “denial-of-service” (DoS) prevention
  • IGMP snooping support for multicast optimization
  • Loop detection and broadcast storm controls
  • Rate limiting and priority queuing for better bandwidth allocation
  • Port mirroring for network monitoring
  • Port trunking/link aggregation (LAG) allows for increased throughput beyond 10G or to provide redundancy across the link(s)
  • Jumbo frame support

10-Gigabit Transition with BASE-T

10GBASE-T allows a standard RJ45 Ethernet jack and existing Cat 6 or Cat 7 network cables to be used, delivering a 10X increase in network performance with minimum changes/upgrades.

  • 10GBASE-T is backward compatible, auto-negotiating between higher and lower speeds, alleviating the need for an all-atonce network equipment upgrade
  • Cat 5/Cat 5e supported at 1G speeds only, up to 100 meters
  • Cat 6 twisted pair supports 10-Gigabit speeds up to 45 meters
  • Cat 6a or Cat 7 cabling supports 10-Gigabit speeds up to 100 meters

Designed as Core Switch for SMB Network

  • 10G connection to 10G-capable servers and network storage
  • 10-Gigabit fiber link for long-haul connections
  • Future-proof your network with 10G bandwidth

Act as Aggregation Switch for Medium Sized Networks

  • 10-Gigabit switches help to resolve the congestion issue between the network edge and the core, caused by the adoption of Gigabit-to-the-desktop
  • 10-Gigabit Ethernet provides greater scalability than multiple Gigabit Ethernet links, resulting in a simplified and highly efficient network infrastructure
  • Up to four (XS708Ev2) or eight (XS716E) 10-Gigabit Ethernet links can be aggregated into two 40-Gbps (XS708Ev2) or 80-Gbps (XS716E) uplink/downlink connections using static manual LAGs

Smart IT, not Big IT

  • Easy-to-use web browser-based management GUI makes setup and management simple
  • Standards-based technology ensures interoperability with any standards-based devices in the existing network
  • Worry-free with NETGEAR ProSAFE LIFETIME Hardware Warranty and Next-Business-Day (NBD) Replacement
  • Get deployment assistance with 90-days Free 24x7 Advanced Technical Phone Support
  • LIFETIME Online Chat Technical Support

Features and Benefits:

Hardware Features Benefits
10GBASE-T Copper Ethernet 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 Cat 6 RJ45 short connections (up to 45m) and Cat 6a/Cat 7 connections up to 100m.
10GBASE-X SFP+ ports Providing flexibility to uplink to 10G-capable core or aggregation switches that support fiber links. Backward compatible to Gigabit fiber. Support copper or fiber modules.
Rackmount or desktop Flexible deployment for either rackmount or desktop placement.
Kensington lock slot Prevent theft, removal, or tampering when used for desktop deployment.
Software Features Benefits
Port-based and 802.1Q-based VLANs Segment network into smaller groups for more secure and efficient use of network resources.
Comprehensive QoS features:
