M6100: The Latest Advances in Hardware and Software Engineering for Higher Flexibility, Lower Complexity and Stronger Investment Protection, at a High-Value Price Point.

The NETGEAR® 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.

World-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 - 17.78cm) 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+ 1000/10GBASE-X ports, or a combination

Higher flexibility

  • Distributed fabric removes the need for a dedicated supervisory module yet providing 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 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

Industry leading warranty

  • NETGEAR M6100 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

Key features

  • Proficient access layer in campus LAN networks, and competent distribution or core layer for midsize organizations networks
  • Advanced Layer 2, Layer 3 and Layer 4 feature set - no license required - including PBR, BGP, DCBX, PFC, ETS and FCoE FIP
  • 1.4 Tbps switching and routing capacity, passive backplane, management and fabric nonstop forwarding redundancy
  • Up to 144 (Gigabit) ports, or 72 (10 Gigabit) ports, or a combination of both in dense form factor models
  • PoE+ (30 watts per port) and UPOE (60 watts per port) modular, flexible implementation
  • Ultra-low latency and scalable table size with 32K MAC, 8K ARP/NDP, 4K VLANs, 12K routes

PoE and UPOE

  • Any Gigabit copper blade can receive PoE+ or UPOE daughter cards for easy upgrade / downgrade and best investment protection
  • Up to 3,000W PoE budget is provided by internal power supplies when 6,000W are available with additional 1U power shelf
  • All set for rapid proliferation of PoE/PoE+ devices, such as IP telephony endpoints, 802.11n / 802.11ac access points and IP security cameras
  • Future-proof 60W UPOE power delivered to next-gen VDI clients or physical security devices; UPOE is backward compatible with PoE/PoE+

Software

  • Advanced classifier-based, time-based hardware implementation for L2 (MAC), L3 (IP) and L4 (UDP/TCP transport ports) security and prioritization
  • Voice VLAN with SIP, H323 and SCCP protocols detection and LLDP-MED IP phones automatic QoS and VLAN configuration
  • Efficient authentication tiering with successive DOT1X, MAB and Captive Portal methods for streamlined BYOD
  • Best-in-class IPv4/IPv6 static and dynamic routing including Proxy ARP, OSPF, BGP, Policy-based routing and automatic 6-to-4 tunneling
  • Enhanced IPv4/IPv6 multicast forwarding with IGMPv3/MLDv2 Querier and Control Packet Flooding protection
  • High performance IPv4/IPv6 multicast routing with PIM timer accuracy and unhandled PIM (S,G,rpt) state machine events transitioning
  • Advanced IPv4/IPv6 security implementation including malicious code detection, DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard protection and DoS attacks mitigation
  • Innovative multi-vendor Auto-iSCSI capabilities for easier virtualization optimization
  • Datacenter-ready features include DCBX (802.1Qaz), Priority Flow Control (PFC), Enhanced Transmission Selection (ETS) and FCoE FIP Snooping

Resiliency and availability

  • Passive backplane, distributed redundant fabric and redundant management provide hitless, nonstop forwarding failover protection for always-on availability
  • Redundant N+1 power protection contributes to business continuity management
  • Distributed Link Aggregation across all I/O blades allows for multi-resiliency and advanced load balancing capabilities
  • Multi Chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG) between two M6100 switches overcomes limitations of Spanning Tree, increasing bandwidth while preserving redundancy
  • Per VLAN Spanning Tree and Per VLAN Rapid Spanning Tree (PVSTP/PVRSTP) offer interoperability with PVST+ infrastructures
  • Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) provides backup for any statically allocated next-hop router address going down, increasing default path availability
