Netgear has launched its first 5-speed Multi-Gigabit switching products – XS724EM and XS505M switches in India. The new Netgear 5-Speed switches operate at 100Mbps, 1Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 5Gbps, or 10Gbps. The five speeds per Ethernet port make them the affordable 10-Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit switches in the market.
Modern high-performance networking devices such as network cards, gaming PCs, desktop PCs, servers, NAS storage and AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points now offer both 2.5-Gigabit or 5-Gigabit connectivity. Other 10-Gigabit switches provide standard 1-Gigabit connectivity to any device requiring less than 10Gbps, but Netgear Multi-Gigabit Switches provide additional options for 2.5 and 5Gbps. So, businesses are able to combine legacy Ethernet speeds like 100 Mbps or 1Gbps, with 10Gbps and now 2.5 and 5Gbps. – Deccan Chronicle
