NETGEAR Ups its Game with Network Mgt and 10GE Managed Switch

NETGEAR announced its first centralized network management console for its business products, and a 10 Gbps managed switch.

The new NETGEAR ProSafe Network Management System (NMS200) gives customers a way to discover, configure, monitor and manage all NETGEAR Layer 2 and Layer 3 switches on their network from a single interface. It can provide customers control across NETGEAR switching, wireless, storage and security products on the network. The ProSafe Network Management System (NMS200) will be available in October 2010 with several license options that support the number of devices a business may have on their network.

The ProSafe 24-port 10 GE Managed L2+ Switch (XSM7224S) provides 10 Gbps server performance and scalability across the network. The ProSafe Network Management System will be expanded in future releases to manage other NETGEAR products. Available in December 2010, the ProSafe 24-port 10GE Managed L2+ Switch (XSM7224S) has a list price of $11,700 and a Layer 3 license upgrade (XSM7224L) will also be available for an additional $2,900.
