Pre-configured for out-of-the-box use

NETGEAR IGMP Plus™ enables instant multicast functionality for most AV over IP installations

Cost effective aggregation
 
Cost effective 100G aggregation and 10G access layer for AV deployments and redundant spine & leaf topologies
Simplified system architecture
Optimized for "Spine and Leaf" redundant AV installations, with or without MLAG between spine switches
High capacity for AV over IP streams
Up to 320 TX / 320 RX (10 Gigabit) nodes all line rate with each other in a redundant spine and leaf architecture
VLAN configuration flexibility
 
IGMP Plus is default on VLAN 1 out of the box and can be configured on another VLAN for automatic IGMP across switches on that VLAN
Power and fan redundancy
2 power supply units (APS750W) and 6 redundant fan trays (AFT402) pre-installed for 1+1 power and 4+2 fan redundancy
Secure operation

Advanced IPv4/IPv6 security including malicious code detection, DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard, and Control Plane Policing (CoPP)

Fault tolerance
Selectable Port-Channel / LAG (802.3ad - 802.1AX) L2/L3/L4 hashing for fault tolerance and load sharing with any Ethernet channeling
Robust link aggregation
Up to 64 Link Aggregation Groups (LAG, Port-Channel, LACP) with 32 ports per LAG and Multi-chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG)
Comprehensive routing
IPv4/IPv6 static and dynamic routing including IP Multinetting/CIDR, PBR, VRRPv2, OSPFv3, PIM-SM6, BGP4, VRF-Lite
Security & Prioritization
Advanced classifier-based, time-based hardware implementation for L2 (MAC), L3 (IP) and L4 (UDP/TCP) security and prioritization
Multicast routing
High performance IPv4/IPv6 multicast routing with PIM-SM and PIM-SM6 associated with unicast static routes, or other L3 protocol
Advanced Layer 3 features

Includes IP Multinetting/CIDR, Static, PBR, VRRPv2, OSPFv3, PIM-SM, VxLAN, BGP4, VRF-Lite

Link Dependency
Ability to enable or disable ports based on the link state of different ports for complete link dependency
Configuration update simplicity
Non-Disruptive Configuration for applying a new configuration file without disrupting the operation of unchanged features
Extensive management capabilities
Industry standard SNMP, RMON, MIB, LLDP, AAA, sFlow and RSPAN remote mirroring implementation
OOB and CLI
Service port for out-of-band 1 Gigabit Ethernet management (OOB) with industry standard command line interface (CLI) only
Local management console
Standard RS232 straight-through RJ45 for local management console (USB 2.0 to RS232 converter with PL203 chipset is advised)
