SDVoE Ready Switch Preconfigured for AV-over-IP Deployments M4300-96x

NETGEAR is introducing a new switch designed for AV-over-IP deployments at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) AV industry trade show, taking place February 6-9 in the RAI convention center in Amsterdam. NETGEAR Business M4300-96X Press Release.

 

As a new member of the SDVoE-Ready M4300 Family, the NETGEAR M4300-96X is a 2RU modular switch that comes either empty or pre-populated with 48 SFP+ ports and supporting up to 96-port 10GBASE-T copper (RJ-45) with first 48 ports capable of PoE+, 96-port 10GBASE-X fiber (SFP+), 24-port 40GBASE-X fiber (QSFP+), or a combination.

The M4300-96X is the world’s only modular solution starting at $100 per port (this is the street price when 96 SFP+ fiber ports and one PSU) and scaling up to 96 ports of 10G Ethernet by multiple of 8 ports, or up to 24 ports of 40G Ethernet by multiple of 2 ports. With 12 open slots and two redundant power supplies, the 96X allows for maximum granularity between copper, PoE+ and fiber and unrivaled headroom for organizations who buy infrastructure for the long term. Better than a fixed port solution, this Atta Big Boy lets you start small and grow later in “non-blocking” mode, just by adding port expansion cards.

 

The M4300-96X streamlines audiovisual display solutions, replacing 8x8, 12x12, 16x16, 24x24 and even 48x48 matrix switchers, all with one Ethernet switch, plug and play and ready to grow as per your requirements. To take the complexity out of your AV-over-IP deployment, NETGEAR created M4300 switches that are preconfigured for easy, true AV and multicast Zero Touch network configuration. Namely, IGMP Snooping, IGMP Fast Leave, IGMP Querier are already enabled for the default VLAN 1 that all your devices will automatically use. You don’t need to log on to the switch.  Select the collection of M4300-96X port expansion cards that fit your requirements (number of copper ports, number of fiber ports, number of PoE+ ports), insert the cards, connect your encoder and decoder devices, and power on the switch – it just works!

 

The SDVoE Alliance is an eco-system of companies in and around the AV-over-IP space, working together to create a platform for the next generation of audiovisual applications. NETGEAR SDVoE Partners provide the SDVoE audio-video products and NETGEAR provides the backbone network that makes it all possible.

 

Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance, said, “The SDVoE Alliance unites leading companies in and around the AV-over-IP space with the shared aim of creating a standardized hardware and software platform for the next generation of audiovisual applications. The commitment of NETGEAR to the SDVoE standard means that alliance members can leverage NETGEAR switching products that are easy to set up and use to provide the backbone network for their audio-video products.”
