NETGEAR® breaks the industry price barrier to bring the first 10 Gigabit affordable switches to Small and Medium-sized networks.

To date, 10 Gigabit connectivity has mostly involved costly fiber based technology as the predominan way to support high-speed access to the backbone of the network, as well as Data Center environments. This is now set to change. NETGEAR is making it possible for SMBs to utilize existing copper cabling and the standard RJ45 Ethernet jack to deliver cost effective 10 Gigabit connectivity into their network - including 10G servers and workstations. 10GBase-T is backward compatible, autonegotiating between higher and lower speeds – thereby avoiding the need an all-at-once network equipment upgrade!
