Fright Estimate

As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR® understands the importance of reliable and high performance networks. With the growth of virtualization, cloud-based services and applications like VoIP, video streaming and IP surveillance, SMB networks need to extend beyond simple reliability to higher speed and performance. The 10-Gigabit Smart Managed Switch series from NETGEAR presents the right solution for this requirement; delivering unprecedented non-blocking 10-Gigabit bandwidth at an affordable cost.


The NETGEAR ProSAFE® XS708T, XS716T, XS728T, and XS748T are powerful Smart Managed Switches that come with 8, 16, 24, or 44 10-Gigabit Copper ports and either 2 Shared (Combo) Copper/SFP+ ports (XS708T/XS716T) or 4 additional Dedicated SFP+ ports (XS728T/XS748T) for 10G Fiber links. The NETGEAR 10-Gigabit Smart Managed 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, connecting to a 10‑Gigabit NETGEAR ProSAFE Fully Managed Switch on one end and extending the 10G connections to the edge. The XS708T and XS716T are also ideal for smaller workgroups that need high bandwidth for sharing, collaborating, editing, and publishing high-density content like video or animation.


Comprehensive L2+/Layer 3 Lite Features

The ProSAFE 10G Smart Managed Switches provide comprehensive L2+/Layer 3 Lite features in order to meet current and future needs on virtualization, converged networking and mobility. Some of the main features include:

  • Advanced VLAN features such as Protocol-based VLAN, MAC-based (Media Access Control) VLAN and 802.1x Guest VLAN
  • Advanced QoS (Quality of Service) with L2/ L3/L4 awareness and 8 priority queues
  • IPv4 and IPv6 static routing
  • Private VLAN
  • Dynamic VLAN assignment
  • IGMP and MLD snooping
  • Advanced Security
  • IPv6 for management, QoS and ACL

10-Gigabit Transition with BASE-T


  • 10GBASE-T, like other BASE-T technologies, uses the standard RJ-45 Ethernet jack
  • It is backward compatible, auto-negotiating between higher and lower speeds – thereby not forcing an all-at-once network equipment upgrade
  • Cat 5 / Cat 5e are supported for Gigabit speeds up to 100 meters
  • Cat 6 twisted pair copper cabling supports 10-Gigabit speeds up to 45 meters
  • Cat 6a or newer Cat 7 cabling will allow for up to 100 meter 10GBASE-T connections

Designed as a Core Switch for SMB Networks


  • 10G connection to 10G-capable servers and network storage
  • Powerful L2+/Layer 3 Lite features make them the most cost-effective core switches for SMB and virtualization environment
  • Future-proof your network with 10G bandwidth, advanced traffic management and comprehensive IPv6 support
  • Static routing helps to route internal traffic for more efficient use of network resources
  • IGMP and MLD snooping provide advanced multicast filtering

Act as an Aggregation Switch for Medium Sized Networks


  • 10-Gigabit switches help to resolve the congestion issue between network edge and core, which is caused by the broader adoption of Gigabit-to-the-desktop
  • 10-Gigabit Ethernet provides greater scalability than multiple Gigabit Ethernet links, resulting in a simplified and highly efficient network infrastructure
  • Up to eight 10-Gigabit Ethernet links can be aggregated into a virtual 80‑Gbps connection
  • 10-Gigabit Ethernet reduces cabling complexity and uses existing cabling efficiently

Smart IT, not Big IT


  • Easy-to-use web browser-based management GUI makes setup and management simple
  • Standards-based technology, ensuring interoperability with any standards-based devices in the existing network
  • Dual firmware images, improving reliability and uptime to your network
  • Worry-free with NETGEAR ProSAFE®LIFETIME Hardware Warranty*
  • Minimal down-time with NETGEAR ProSAFE LIFETIME Next-Business-Day Replacement Warranty
  • Get deployment assistance with 90-days Free 24x7 Advanced Technical Phone Support**
  • LIFETIME 24x7 Online Chat Technical Support

10GBASE-T Connections

Support low-latency, line-rate 10G Copper “BASE-T” technology with backward compatibility to Fast Ethernet (depending on model) and Gigabit Ethernet. Cost-effectively migrate current network to 10G capacity by utilizing the existing Cat6 RJ45 short connections (up to 30m) and Cat6a/Cat7 connections up to 100m.



10GBASE-X SFP+ ports

Providing flexibility to uplink to 10G-capable core or aggregation switches that support fiber links. Backward compatible to Gigabit fiber. Support copper or fiber modules.


USB Configuration Port

Quickly and conveniently upgrade or restore firmware, load or backup configuration files, or download system log files for troubleshooting.


Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az)

Maximum power reduction for ongoing operation cost savings.


Comprehensive IPv6 Support for Management, ACL and QoS

Build current network with future in mind. Ensure investment protection and a smooth migration to an IPv6-based network without switch replacement.



IPv4/IPv6 Static Routing

A simple way to provide segmentation of the network with internal routing through the switch – reserving the router for external traffic routing only, making the entire network more efficient.



Robust Security Features

Build a secured, converged network with all types traffic by preventing external attacks and blocking malware while allowing secure access for authorized users.

  • 802.1x authentication
  • Port-based security by locked MAC
  • ACL filtering to permit or deny traffic based on MAC and IP addresses

Comprehensive QoS Features


  • Port-based or 802.1p-based prioritization
  • Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
  • Port-based ingress and egress rate limiting

IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping

Facilitate fast receiver joins and leaves for multicast streams. Save cost and improve network efficiency by ensuring multicast traffic only reaches designated receivers without the need of an extra multicast router.


Protected Ports

Ensure no exchange of unicast, broadcast, or multicast traffic between the protected ports on the switch, thereby improving the security of your converged network. This allows your sensitive phone phone conversations to stay private and your surveillance video clips can be forwarded to their designated storage device without leakage or alteration.


DHCP Snooping

Ensure IP address allocation integrity by allowing only clients with specific IP/MAC addresses to have access to the network.



Private VLAN

Private VLANs help reduce broadcast with added security.


Dual Firmware Images and Configuration Files

Dual firmware image and dual configuration file for transparent firmware updates/configuration changes with minimum service interruption.

Auto-Voice and Auto-Video

Automatic Voice over IP prioritization (Auto-VoIP) simplifies most complex multi-vendor IP telephone deployments either based on protocols (SIP, H.323 and SCCP) or on OUI bytes (default database and user-based OUIs) in the phone source MAC address, providing the best class of service to VoIP streams (both data and signaling) over other ordinary traffic by classifying traffic, and enabling correct egress queue configuration. Similarly, Auto-Video VLAN enables IGMP snooping to minimize broadcast streams. For XS708T and XS716T, when deployed IP phones are LLDP-MED compliant, the Voice VLAN will use LLDP-MED to pass on the VLAN ID, 802.1P priority and DSCP values to the IP phones, accelerating convergent deployments.


Dynamic VLAN Assignment (RADIUS)

IP phones and PCs can authenticate on the same port but under different VLAN assignment policies. Users are free to move around and enjoy the same level of network access regardless of their physical location on the network.
