NETGEAR XCM8948 – switch – 48 ports – plug-in module


The new ProSAFE M6100 Chassis series is set to shake up how SMBs deploy high performance, highly resilient, fully redundant and future proof switched networks from the Core to the Edge – without hurting or exhausting IT budgets. The NETGEAR LAN Access and Aggregation Chassis M6100 series delivers L2/L3/L4 and IPv4/IPv6 rich services for enterprise edge and SMB core deployments, as well as 1G / 10G mixed infrastructures in server rooms. Innovative distributed fabric provides non-stop forwarding resiliency and world-class availability – including passive backplane, hitless failover, redundant fabric and redundant management – without having to pay the exorbitant acquisition and maintenance costs associated by other networking vendors in this class.

All in one solution. Designed for use at the center of a small to mid-sized organization, or as an aggregate or access solution in a larger campus or mid-sized enterprise branch network, the application scenarios for the M6100 are both wide and diverse.

Distributed fabric, passive backplane
NO single point of failure with management and power backup and distributed link aggregation across multiple chassis arrangements.

480Gbps inter-module backplane performance
No performance compromise. With up to 10 x performance of fixed stackable solutions with similar port counts, value performance ratios are unrivaled.

Gigabit and 10G blades offering deployment flexibility for today and tomorrow’s needs
Decide on the port count and speeds you need, from 144 Gigabit ports through to 72 10 Gigabit ports, or a combination of both.
