Netgear M5300-28GF3 (GSM7328FS) 24-Port ProSafe Gigabit Fiber Switch

Tk Call for Price

The next generation M5300 series is NETGEAR top of the line for managed, stackable Gigabit Ethernet switches with embedded 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink and stacking connectivity.

They are ideal for all organizations considering reliable, affordable and simple 10 Gigabit Ethernet backbone architectures.

As a proficient component of converged voice, video and data networking solutions, NETGEAR M5300 series delivers a resilient access layer in server rooms for virtualization, campus LAN environments and commercial buildings.

Virtual Chassis stacking technology – including non-stop forwarding – scales both the entire network’s performance and its redundancy.


Key Features and Investment Protection

24 and 48 Gigabit models, and one 24 Gigabit SFP fiber model Because RIP, OSPF, VRRP or PIM aren't always needed, M5300 series comes with port-based / VLAN-based / subnet-based "static routing" only Layer 2+ versions You can save costs now and should new applications arise, there's seamless upgrade path with Layer 3 licenses 4 or 24 uplink fiber (SFP) ports for Fast Ethernet or Gigabit optics Two embedded 10 Gigabit interfaces streamline network uplinks with SFP+ and 10GBase-T (RJ45) combo ports Two supplemental 10 Gigabit I/O bays for additional uplinks or local / remote stacking, provide versatile 10 Gigabit deployment capabilities Uplink capacity per switch is 4-port 10 Gigabit total, mixing 10GBase-T (RJ45), 10GBase-X (SFP+), 10GBase-CX4 (802.3ak) and 48 Gbps stacking ports

PoE+ Features and Expandable Power

380W PoE+ budget built-in per switch and full PoE+ power budget capacity up to 1,440W per switch with external EPS Example: 96-port PoE+ in a 3 rack unit (RU) form factor and 30W power on all ports (2,880W budget) using two units M5300-52G-POE+ and one RPS4000 Redundant power supply functionality with one hot-swap modular power supply Optional single switch RPS option (RPS5412, one-to-one protection) Optional four-switch RPS option (RPS4000, providing power backup up to four switches concurrently as for one-to-one mode) Optional four-switch EPS option (RPS4000 in External Power Supply mode for PoE+ application of up to 2,880W PoE+ budget)

Main Software Features

All M5300 series versions share the same code base for easier deployment and maintenance; same firmware across all platforms M5300 series is flexible enough for mixed stacking between Layer 2+ and Layer 3 versions Automatic multi-vendor Voice over IP prioritization based on SIP, H323 and SCCP protocol detection Voice VLAN and LLDP-MED for automatic IP phones QoS and VLAN configuration Multi-hop RP multicast PIM routing advanced implementation for resilient video deployments Advanced classifier-based hardware implementation for L2 (MAC), L3 (IP) and L4 (UDP/TCP transport ports) security and prioritization Innovative multi-vendor Auto-iSCSI capabilities for easier virtualization optimization

Virtual Chassis Stacking Technology

True Virtual Chassis Stacking technology with up to 384 Gbps interconnect for network operations simplification Meshed stacking for multi-resiliency and advanced load balancing capabilities Up to 384 ports Gigabit and 16 available 10 Gigabit uplink ports per Virtual Chassis of 8 switches Highest availability with sub-second master failover for L2 and L3 seamless switching Distributed Link Aggregation for active-active connections Investment protection: backward stacking capability with previous GSM72xxPS v1h1 and GSM73xxS v2h1 models

Management Features

DHCP/BootP innovative auto-installation including firmware and configuration file upload automation Industry standard SNMP, RMON, MIB, LLDP, AAA, sFlow and RSPAN implementation Selectable serial RS232 DB9 and Mini-USB port for management console Standard USB port for local storage, logs, configuration or image files Dual firmware image and configuration file for updates with minimum service interruption Industry standard command line interface (CLI) for IT admins used to other vendors commands and scripting Fully functional Web console (GUI) for IT admins who prefer an easy to use graphical interface

Industry Leading Availability

Removable, modular power module for the main power supply Hot-swap RPS / EPS capabilities for 100% uptime when the main power supply is replaced
