NETGEAR INTRODUCES NEW MULTI-GIG SWITCHES IDEALLY SUITED FOR WiFi 6 DEPLOYMENTS AND MORE
New multi-speed switches optimize communication between networked devices, can be cloud managed, and offer options for PoE++ and Uninterrupted PoE.
San Jose, CA – January 11th, 2021 – NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTGR), the leading provider of networking products that power businesses of all sizes, today announced the availability of the MS510TXM and MS510TXUP multi-gig switches. These innovative switches from NETGEAR support speeds up to 10G and have optional cloud management. The MS510TXUP Ultra60 PoE++ model additionally supports up to 60 Watts of PoE power on each port.
Multi-gig connectivity for Optimized Performance
As the need for speed continues with more devices requiring faster connections than are supported by traditional 1Gbps switches, NETGEAR’s new multi-gig offerings can connect devices at a multitude of speeds for sustained end-to-end performance. Each port on the MS510TXM or MS510TXUP can auto-negotiate to speeds of 100Mb, 1G, 2.5G, 5G or 10G, thus enabling WiFi access points, network attached storage systems, servers, and IoT devices to be connected at the most optimal speed. The MS510TXM and MS510TXUP are suited for businesses wanting to improve their WiFi performance with a network of WiFi 6 Access Points (such as NETGEAR’s newly announced WAX610 or WAX218, both of which support communication speeds of 2.5G). More importantly, with these new switches, speeds of up to 5G can be achieved with CAT 5E, thus protecting a business’s investment in cable infrastructure.
PoE++ Power for Simplicity & Lower Cost
The MS510TXUP additionally offers PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) on each of its ports. It supports Ultra60 PoE++, the latest PoE standard IEEE 802.3az, which delivers up to 60 watts of PoE power on each port. The ability to supply both data and power over a single (Ethernet) cable enables network devices to be placed at their most optimal location without worrying about the availability of a power outlet, thus simplifying deployment and reducing costs. The MS510TXUP comes with a large PoE budget of 295 Watts and can power PoE, PoE+, or PoE++ devices, making it ideal for powering and connecting WiFi Access Points, IP Surveillance Cameras, Audio Speakers, Point-of-Sale terminals, any many types of IoT devices.
Additionally, MS510TXUP’s Uninterrupted PoE feature ensures that power to the connected devices is not disrupted in the event of a switch firmware update or switch reboot.
"A new generation of networked devices like WiFi 6 Access Points, IP Surveillance Cameras, Smart Lighting, Ethernet-enabled speakers, etc. require more power and faster network speeds," said Patrick Lo, Chairman and CEO of NETGEAR. "The MS510TXM and MS510TXUP come at an especially important time when businesses have a pressing need to remain viable and competitive amidst a global pandemic. Combined with our new WiFi 6 access points, the new switches help businesses run faster and more reliably at a significantly lower cost."
The MS510TXM and MS510TXUP Smart switches provide an intuitive web browser-based user interface for easy management of L2/L2+/L3-Lite network features like VLANs and QoS management. With the MS510TXUP, advanced per port PoE controls, including power allocation override, PoE scheduling, and enable/disable/power cycle, can all be accessed through any web browser.
Insight Cloud Management Included
The MS510TXM and MS510TXUP switches also come with NETGEAR Insight Cloud management activation for anytime remote management and monitoring through an intuitive app or Cloud Portal. Insight delivers the ultimate in device and location management, allowing you to remotely manage small business networks across multiple locations from a single pane-of-glass. Both switches include a 1-year subscription of Insight Premium or Insight Pro.
IPv6 management, ACL, DiffServ QoS, LACP link aggregation (port trunking) and Spanning Tree, and static routing features are supported on the MS510TXM and MS510TXUP switches to ensure even the most advanced needs of small business are satisfied. Additionally, in order to maintain the proper speed, the switches have auto-sensing ports: Four of the eight ports will automatically switch between 100Mb/1G/2.5G/5G/10G speeds, the other 4 ports provide 100Mb, 1G and 2.5G speeds, and two uplink ports automatically switch between 1G and 10G as needed with SFP+ ports.
Support when you need it
The MS510TXM and MS510TXUP come with an industry-leading limited lifetime warranty and 90 days of phone and chat support for when you need a helping hand.
