NETGEAR AX742 Stacking Kit is cost-effective preferred method for local Virtual Chassis Stacking using both rear I/O bays. When some switches are distant, affordable SFP+ (AX743) and 10GBase-T (AX745) I/O modules allow for fiber or copper distant connections, still leveraging rear bays zero-touch stacking functionality.
