NETGEAR M4100 Series

As a cost-effective component of converged voice, video and data networking solutions, NETGEAR M4100 series offers ideal, advanced features for a secure edge in commercial buildings and campus LAN environments.

  • High availability and PoE/PoE+ full power capability
  • Industry standard management
  • Industry leading warranty
  • Layer 2+ with static routing
  • Engineered for convergence
  • High-value performance and IPv6 ready


  • Layer 3 hardware with L2+ software affordability
  • Built upon L3 hardware platform while Layer 2+ software package allows for better budget optimization
  • Uses latest generation silicon low-power 40-nanometer technology
  • L2 and L3 switching features (access control list, classification, filtering, IPv4 routing) are performed in hardware at interface line rate for voice, video, and data convergence
  • Layer 2+ software package provides straight forward IP static routing capabilities for physical interfaces, VLANs and subnets
  • 16K MAC address table, 1K concurrent VLANs and 64 static routes for SMB and small enterprise access layers
  • Increased packet buffering with up to 12 Mb dynamically shared accross all interfaces for most intensive applications
  • Low latency at all network speeds
  • Jumbo frames support of up to 9Kb accelerating storage performance for backup and cloud applications


  • IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) provides up to 15.4W per port
  • IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) provides up to 30W per port
  • Desktop versions can be powered by upstream PoE+ switch
  • M4100-D12G-POE+ can even redistribute PoE power from the upstream PoE+ switch to VoIP phones or other devices in meeting rooms, retail sales floors or other challenging environments without outlet
  • Both IEEE 802.3at Layer 2 LLDP method and 802.3at 2-event classification methods are supported for compatibility with all PoE+ PD devices
  • Automatic MDIX and Auto-negotiation on all ports select the right transmission modes (half or full duplex) as well as data transmission for crossover or straight-through cables dynamically for the admin
  • 100Mbps backward compatiblity on all SFP ports
  • IPv6 support with multicasting (MLD for IPv6 filtering), ACLs and QoS

Ease of Use

  • Fully functional Web console (GUI) for IT admins who prefer an easy to use graphical interface
  • Placement outside the wiring closet (conference rooms, offices, class rooms, sales floor in retail stores, etc)
  • For secure deployment in open areas , desktop versions come with a Wall Mount Kit with four brackets
  • Select desktop versions also come with a set of strong magnets for mounting on any metal surface
  • Automatic configuration with DHCP and BootP Auto Install
  • Both the Switch Serial Number and Switch primary MAC address are reported by a simple "show" command in the CLI
  • Automatic Voice over IP prioritization with Auto-VoIP
  • An associated Voice VLAN can be easily configured with Auto-VoIP for further traffic isolation
  • When deployed IP phones are LLDP-MED compliant, the Voice VLAN will use LLDP-MED to pass on the VLAN ID, 802.1P priority and DSCP values to the IP phones, accelerating convergent deployments
  • DHCP/BootP innovative auto-installation including firmware and configuration file upload automation
  • Dual firmware image and configuration file for updates with minimum service interruption


  • Traffic control MAC Filter and Port Security
  • DHCP Snooping monitors DHCP traffic between DHCP clients and DHCP servers to filter harmful DHCP message and prevent DHCP spoofing attacks
  • IP source guard and Dynamic ARP Inspection for malicious users traffic elimination
  • Layer 2 / Layer 3-v4 / Layer 3-v6 / Layer 4 Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be binded to ports, Layer 2 interfaces, VLANs and LAGs (Link Aggregation Groups or Port channel) for fast unauthorized data prevention and right granularity
  • Bridge protocol data unit (BPDU) Guard allows the network administrator to enforce the Spanning Tree (STP) domain borders and keep the active topology consistent and predictable - unauthorized devices or switches behind the edge ports that have BPDU enabled will not be able to influence the overall STP topology by creating loops
  • Spanning Tree Root Guard (STRG) enforces the Layer 2 network topology by preventing rogue root bridges potential issues when for instance, unauthorized or unexpected new equipment in the network may accidentally become a root bridge for a given VLAN
  • Dynamic 802.1x VLAN assignment mode, including Dynamic VLAN creation mode and Guest VLAN / Unauthenticated VLAN are supported for rigorous user and equipment RADIUS policy server enforcement
  • 802.1x MAC Address Authentication Bypass (MAB)
  • Double VLANs (DVLAN - QinQ) pass traffic from one customer domain to another through the "metro core" in a multi-tenancy environment
  • Private VLANs (with Primary VLAN, Isolated VLAN, Community VLAN, Promiscuous port, Host port, Trunks) provide Layer 2 isolation between ports that share the same broadcast domain
  • Secure Shell (SSH) and SNMPv3 (with or without MD5 or SHA authentication) ensure SNMP and Telnet sessions are secured
  • TACACS+ and RADIUS enhanced administrator management provides strict "Login" and "Enable" authentication enforcement for the switch configuration and authentication based on user domain in addition to user ID and password
