NETGEAR Stackable Switches with Non-Stop Forwarding

To help AV integrators bridge the gap between leveraging AV over IP distribution products and procuring Ethernet switching technology, ZeeVee has become an authorized reseller of Netgear's AV over IP line of switches. The world’s only 1G, 10G and 40G stackable platform designed for server and audiovisual installations, converged access layer and dependable core in SMB environments. M4300 stacking topologies deliver 384-port 1G, 768-port 10G, 192-port 40G, or a combination in redundant, unstoppable systems for edge to core connectivity.

Best-in-class stacking

  • M4300 is flexible enough for mixed stacking between 10 Gigabit and 1 Gigabit models, using any 10G port with any media type (RJ45, SFP+, DAC cables)
  • High-availability is another key differentiator for stackable solutions: in case of a master switch failure, NSF and hitless failover ensure the standby switch takes over while forwarding plane continues to forward traffic on the operational stack members without any service interruption

10G / 40G modular solution

  • The M4300-96X scales from 8 to 96 ports of 10G Ethernet by multiple of 8 ports, and from 2 to 24 ports of 40G Ethernet by multiple of 2 ports
  • Better than a fixed port solution, the 96X lets you start small with maximum granularity between copper and fiber, including PoE+ over 10G, and grow later in “non-blocking” mode just by adding port expansion cards

Higher flexibility

  • Two half-width M4300 switches can be paired in a single rack space for redundant Top of Rack installations with Auto-iSCSI prioritization
  • 10 Gigabit ports are all independent and 1G backward compatible for progressive transition to 10G speeds

Lower complexity

  • Entire feature set including L2 switching (multi-tiered access control) and L3 routing (static, RIP, OSPF, VRRP, PIM, PBR) is available without license
  • DHCP/BootP innovative auto-installation including firmware and configuration file upload automation

Investment protection

  • Line-rate spine and leaf stacking topologies offer multiple possibilities in server rooms, in branch collapsed cores or at the edge of growing networks
  • Even if an organization is not ready for SDN, OpenFlow support offers future-ready design for maximum investment protection

Secure services

  • With successive tiering, the Authentication Manager allows for authentication methods per port for a tiered authentication based on configured time-outs
  • With BYOD, tiered Dot1x -> MAB -> Captive Portal authentication is powerful and simple to implement with strict policies

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

Industry leading warranty

  • NETGEAR M4300 series is covered under NETGEAR ProSafe Lifetime Hardware Warranty
  • 90 days of Technical Support via phone and email, Lifetime Technical Support through online chat and Lifetime Next Business Day hardware replacement
