NETGEAR Inc. has launched the cloud-managed NETGEAR S3600 Series Smart Switches, joining the company’s portfolio of switches designed to meet the growing demands for faster networking that today’s businesses require. The S3600 Series includes the 8-Port 10G/Multi-Gigabit (XS508TM) and 16-Port 10G/Multi-Gigabit (XS516TM) that provide flexible and auto-adaptive wired connectivity of high-bandwidth devices.
The growing networking demands of high-bandwidth applications and devices in the workplace often result in connectivity drops, slow speeds, bottlenecks, lagging content streaming, and slow downloads. The S3600 Series of Smart Switches addresses these issues and enables business owners to simply connect devices and instantly give each device exactly the speed it needs — either 1G, 2.5G, 5G, or 10G.
NETGEAR’s beginning-to-end solutions work seamlessly for an optimized business network. The XS508TM and XS516TM are the latest additions to NETGEAR’s Total Network Solution, joining the recently announced PR60X Pro Router, Pro WiFi Access Points and Insight cloud management platform, helping businesses take advantage of the latest networking connectivity all from a single vendor.
“Business owners face constant pressure as their organization grows – like managing networking bandwidth, especially when the number of high-bandwidth devices continues to increase at the workplace,” said Iphie Chen, senior product line manager at NETGEAR. “With our latest launch, business owners can choose the 8-Port or 16-Port 10G/Multi-Gigabit switch that caters to their specific networking needs, while also enabling some room to grow. As part of the Total Network Solution, the new S3600 Smart Switch Series provides easy-to-configure setup and management, which is critical especially for any business that may lack the onsite IT resources that most enterprise solutions require.”
The S3600 includes intuitive web management which streamlines initial configuration for rapid onboarding at the access layer of your network. It features 2 x 10G SFP+ Fiber uplink ports, perfect for a local 10G server or for uplink aggregation to the business’s network core. Additionally, the S3600 provides advanced Smart switch features such as IPv6 Layer 2+/3 static routing, DiffServ QoS policies, LACP, broadcast/multicast/unicast control, DHCP, and more to satisfy even the most advanced medium to large business needs.
While the built-in user interface is included to give business owners full control over configuration, setting up and managing the switch is even more convenient through the NETGEAR Insight cloud management platform. Insight provides comprehensive remote configuration and troubleshooting for NETGEAR Pro Routers, Pro WiFi Access Points, and Smart Cloud Managed Switches. Network managers can easily deploy, manage, and monitor every aspect of the network all from a single pane-of-glass.
NETGEAR stands behind the product’s reliability with a Limited Lifetime warranty and 24/7 technical support, ensuring peace of mind and expert assistance when needed.
