New 802.11ac Wireless Switch Series from Netgear Target SMBs

Netgear switchNetgear  has just announced its new series of wireless switches called the ProSAFE 10Gigabit switching platforms to help small and mid market businesses make the most of and scale their 802.11ac  Wave 2 wireless networks. Wireless switches send and receive information at the same time and passes that information quickly between devices in your network.

These two new switche series are:

  • The ProSAFE 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 ProSAFE M4300 Managed Intelligent Edge Series is the world’s firststackable 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.

IT director Gary Girolimon recently installed the ProSAFE M4300 Managed Intelligent Edge Series within the Goffstown School District in Goffstown, New Hampshire. “We’ve been able to consolidate the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) for one of our public schools, while concurrently powering numerous 802.11ac access points. The M4300 Series routes multiple Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) including PoE phones, and connects through the OSPF routing protocol to our other school network sites. We’re delighted with the performance of the M4300 Series, which makes a robust addition to our NETGEAR-powered network.”

The new ProSAFE M4200 Managed Intelligent Edge Series and ProSAFE M4300 Managed Intelligent Edge Series are both available now worldwide through authorized NETGEAR partners and other reseller channels. Regional variance may apply to final pricing for end customers, depending on the reseller and bundled offerings.

  • The ProSAFE M4200-10MG-PoE+ Managed Switch (GSM4210P) has a U.S. list price of $1,790.
  • Pricing for the ProSAFE M4300 Series with nine switch models starts at a U.S. list price of $1,590 for a 24-port 1G model, ranging up to $6,990 for a 48-port 10G model.
