NetGear M6100 Series XCM8944 40-Port Gigabit and 4-Port 10GBASE-T Chassis Switch - Brand New

ProSAFE® LAN Access and Aggregation Chassis Switches
The NETGEAR® LAN Access and Aggregation Chassis M6100 series delivers L2/L3/L4 and IPv4/IPv6 rich services for enterprise edge and SMB core deployments, as well as 1G/10G mixed infrastructures in server rooms. Innovative distributed fabric provides non-stop forwarding resiliency and world-class availability - including passive backplane, hitless failover, redundant fabric and redundant management - without having to pay the exorbitant acquisition and maintenance costs associated by other networking vendors in this class. NETGEAR Lan Access and Aggregation Chassis Switch solutions combine the latest advances in hardware and software engineering for higher flexibility, lower complexity and stronger investment protection, at a high-value price point.

Word-class availability

  • Dependable continuity of operations with non-stop switching, non-stop routing and hitless failover supported for both fabric and management
  • N+1 redundancy for power supplies and loop-free, disruption-free multi-chassis link aggregation (MLAG)

High speed performance

  • 1.4 Tbps total routing/switching capacity and up to 1,071 Mpps intra-blade throughput
  • 480 Gbps distributed fabric inter-module with each slot providing 2 x 40G access to the passive backplane (80G half-duplex; 160G full-duplex)

Extra high-density

  • Only 4U height (7 inches – 17.59cm) and 17.39 inches depth (44.16cm)
  • Supports 144 RJ45 10/100/1000 ports, or 120 SFP 100/1000 ports, or 72 RJ45 10GBASE-T ports, or 48 SFP+ 1000/10BASE-X ports, or a combination

Higher flexibility

  • Distributed fabric removes the need for a dedicated supervisory module yet provides passive backplane, redundant fabric and redundant management
  • Any I/O blade spares hardware and software distributed fabric on board, facilitating campus management, maintenance and upgrades

Lower complexity

  • Entire feature set including datacenter (DCBX, PFC, ETS, FIP Snooping) and advanced IPv6 L3 routing (OSPF, PBR, BGP) is available without a license
  • Innovative slot-1 supervisory and slot-2 backup supervisory design simplifies the entire chassis installation and ongoing maintenance tasks

Investment protection

  • Multi-role versatile platform engineered for cost-effective Gigabit edge, flexible Gigabit/10 Gigabit distribution and scalable 10 Gigabit core applications
  • Any Gigabit copper blade can be upgraded with PoE+ 30W or UPOE 60W daughter card and downgraded later if the application has changed

Industry standard management

  • Industry standard command line interface (CLI), functional NETGEAR web interface (GUI), SNMP, sFlow and RSPAN
  • Single-pane-of-glass NMS300 management platform with centralized firmware updates and mass-configuration support
