48x10G/25G SFP28 and 8x100G QSFP28 Managed Switch


Additional information


These switches combine the configurability of a matrix switcher with the power and scalability of Ethernet to support hundreds of AV over IP endpoints. M4300 and M4500 switches offer IGMP Plus and greatly simplify system architectures at a dramatically lower price point.

re-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
