An ideal companion to the rapidly emerging class of 10-gigabit servers, the NETGEARr ProSAFEr 28-port Gigabit Stackable Smart Switch is the industry's first smart switch with 10-gigabit connectivity - delivering maximum throughput in SMB networks for demanding tasks such as data replication and backup, virtualization, video on demand and high-volume transaction processing. At less than half the cost of a managed switch, the ProSAFE 28-Port Gigabit Smart Switch provides 24 gigabit ports for connecting devices to the network, along with four 10GE SFP+ ports for stacking or uplink to servers. GS728TXS is able to be mixed and matched with GS752TXS in the same stack. As many as six switches can be stacked for a total of 300 network ports, with full redundancy for unsurpassed reliability. The GS728TXS offers a rich enterprise-class feature set, including advanced traffic management and security, yet can be easily configured and monitored through a web-based graphical user interface.
