NETGEAR M4300-96X Modular Managed Switch

Clever technology aside, the open approach of the SDVoE alliance is very important. A global API means that this is not just for big players: smaller firms can take advantage of SDVoE standards, for instance to create solutions for SMEs or niche vertical sectors. For end users, SDVoE products means seamless connectivity of all the components in a Pro AV network made of standard 10G Ethernet switches: digital signage, 4K cameras, 4K servers, Blu-Ray Players, cable and satellite boxes and laptops.

That said, not all 10G Ethernet switches are the same and so it is important to find the right one for the intended application. As well as being a founding member of the SDVoE Alliance, NETGEAR is also the first company to launch a family of switches developed for true AVoIP, called the M4300 Series. These units provide simple and seamless integration into AV systems, with zero-touch installation ‘out of the box. With a comparatively small form factor, the switches are also designed to stack for scale and convenience and will support up 10G Ethernet across 16 to 96 available ports each, for both copper and fiber network connectivity. Users can start small and then build or adapt the network as required.

The latest M4300-96X is designed with the needs of AV pros in mind. Pre-configured features include IGMP and the mixed stacking between 10/40G and 1G models, using any 10G/40G port with any media (for instance, RJ45, SFP+ or DAC cables). In common with the rest of the series, the M4300-96X provides robust availability and failover resistance, high security and standards-compliance.

In conclusion, the NETGEAR M4300 switches are SDVoE-Ready because, they just work! Those excited to see the NETGEAR M4300-96X Modular Managed Switch will get their opportunity at ISE 2019 in Amsterdam on the SDVoE Alliance stand (3-B150).
