Top-of-the-line cloud manageable Smart Switch for 10G speed connectivity

As a leading provider of network equipment, NETGEAR Business understands the importance of providing a great choice of speed and power to support core business needs. With the growth of network speed, virtualization, and cloud-based applications like VoIP, video streaming, and IP surveillance, businesses in all sectors must keep up to ensure success. Also, the increase in speeds for access points now require faster speeds in the network.

The XS508TM and XS516TM are 10G/ Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Smart Switches with 2 10G SFP+ ports that joined the NETGEAR Total Network Solution family, adding the first fully 10G series to our Insight compatible switch line. NETGEAR Pro WiFi Access Points with power adapters are perfect for use with the XS508TM and XS516TM switches.

NETGEAR Smart Switches offer powerful L2+/Lite L3 features and enhanced performance and usability. They are purposely designed for modern applications and support BYOD which requires companies to have more bandwidth to ensure smooth network connectivity with no congestion. Furthermore, for 2.5G or 5G speeds there is no requirement to upgrade your cabling beyond Cat5E, allowing for higher speeds without additional cabling upgrade costs.

These 10G/Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Smart Switches support NETGEAR Insight Cloud management, allowing businesses simpler configuration and deployment from anywhere using the NETGEAR Insight app from mobile devices or the Insight Cloud portal from any device with a web browser.


Temperature- and load-based fan-speed control combines accurate monitoring with minimized acoustic noise which is ideal for office environments. The S3600 Series operates quietly with a maximum of 28.63 dBA even at full power and 25° C (77° F) ambient.

Remote setup, management, and monitoring anywhere, anytime, from your mobile device, PC, Mac, or tablet Locally or remotely setup, configure, manage, monitor or even troubleshoot your network from anywhere, anytime. Check network status, view dashboards for network health and activity, power cycle PoE ports, etc, and update firmware remotely. No need to be on-site, open up ports to your network, or VPN into it.
Auto-join and Configure (Zero-Touch Provisioning) Additional Insight Managed devices added to the network automatically inherit settings and configuration.
Multi-site, Multi-network Single Pane-of-Glass View View and configure multiple networks across multiple sites, all from one single app; NETGEAR Insight.
Comprehensive IPv6 Support for Management, ACLs and QoS Build current network with future in mind. Ensure investment protection and a smooth migration to an IPv6-based network without switch replacement.
Robust security features:
  • 802.1x authentication (EAP)
  • Port-based security by locked MAC
Build a secured, converged network with all types of traffic by preventing external attacks and blocking malware while allowing secure access for authorized users.
Comprehensive QoS features:
  • Port-based or VLAN 802.1p-based prioritization
  • Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
  • Port-based iegress rate limiting
Advanced controls for optimized network performance and better delivery of mission-critical traffic such as voice and video.
Auto-VoIP, Auto-Voice VLAN Automatic Voice over IP prioritization (Auto-VoIP) simplifies most complex multi-vendor IP telephone deployments either based 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.
Auto-WiFi, Auto-Camera VLAN Auto-WiFi VLAN and Auto-Camera VLAN allows the switch to forward packets with the inputed OUIs of Wireless APs and cameras in a special VLAN with priority settings of that VLAN automatically.
IGMP 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 only allowing DHCP messages from trusted DHCP servers and dropping malformed DHCP messages with a port or MAC address mismatch.
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.
Link Aggregation (LACP) Build up bigger bandwidth to support aggregated uplink/downlink traffic or to provide redundant link(s). Aggregate up to 8 ports for 8Gbps connections.
Loop Prevention and Auto-DoS Prevention Detect and prevent (auto port shutdown) accidental network loops and protect against DoS attacks.
PoE Timer and Scheduling Allows IT administrators to increase network security, better utilize network resources and conserve energy by scheduling or remotely controlling on/ off of PoE ports.
Port Mirroring and Cable Test Many-to-one port mirroring for better and quicker network diagnostics and troubleshooting. Cable test easily identifies bad Ethernet cables.
Dual Firmware Images Dual firmware images for transparent firmware updates with minimum service interruption.
Firmware Updates from Cloud Direct cloud-to-device firmware updates, initiated and/or scheduled using the Insight app, all from the palm of your hand, anytime, anywhere!
