The 2nd Generation NETGEAR ProSAFE XS708Ev2 is a powerful Web Managed (Plus) Switch that includes 8 ports of 10-Gigabit connectivity (8 copper with 1 shared combo copper/SFP+ Fiber port) for business class networks. NETGEAR's 10-Gigabit Web Managed (Plus) Switches are purposely designed as a cost-effective way to provide 10G connections to 10G-capable servers and NAS (Network Attached Storage) systems. They can be used at the "center of a small business network" or as an aggregation / access switch in a larger organization including workgroup access.
The XS708Ev2 provides configurable L2 network features allowing SMB customers to deploy virtualization, cloud-based services and applications like VoIP, video streaming and IP surveillance, which require higher reliability, speed, and performance. It delivers unprecedented non-blocking 10-Gigabit bandwidth at an affordable cost, and is plug-and-play out of the box, or can be easily configured for advanced features via the Web browser-based management GUI. The XS708Ev2 is ideal for smaller workgroups that need high-bandwidth for sharing, collaborating, editing, and publishing high-density content like video or animation.
