The NETGEAR M4300-96X is a 2RU modular switch that comes either empty or pre-populated, allowing it to expand with your business as you add modules. THe M4300-96W switch is ideal for server and storage interconnect, AV-over-IP and SMB core deployments.

The M4300-96W scales up to 96 ports of 10G Ethernet by multiples of 8 ports, or up to 24 ports of 40G Ethernet by multiples of 2 ports. With 12 open slots and two redundant power supplies, the 96W allows for maximum granularity between copper and fibre and unrivalled headroom for organisations who buy infrastructure for the long term. Better than a fixed port solution, this 96-port switch lets you start small and grow later in "non-blocking" mode, just by adding port expansion cards.

Full Modularity and flexible server connections

Not sure whether your future servers and storage hosts will come with 10G Fibre or 10G Copper or 40G QSFP+? The M4300-96X has you covered with plenty of copper and fibre ports available, including 40G QSFP+ expansion cards.

High Availability Server Connections

Afraid of single points of failure across your virtualised servers? The M4300 two-unit horizontal stacking is cost-effective yet highly effective for HA with Link Aggregation (L2/L3/L4 LACP), load balancing and non-stop forwarding failover.

Scales with your business

Are you filling up your racks, not sure you'll be able to skip rack units between servers for additional connectivity or redundant fabric? The M4300-96X lets you start small and scale up with expansion cards as your business expands.

Edge to core Stacking

The M4300 is the ideal stackable platform, reproducing Spine and Leaf data centre topologies in a stack with unrivalled ease of use. No more bottlenecks or downtime!

Pre-Configured for multicast, video-over-ip and sdvoe

IGMP Snooping, IGMP Fast Leave, IGMP Querier are already enabled for the default VLAN 1 that all your audiovisual devices will automatically use: select the collection of M4300-96X port expansion cards that fit your requirements (number of copper ports, number of fiber ports, number of PoE+ ports), insert the cards, connect your encoder and decoder AV devices, and power on the switch – it just works!

Enabling Zero-Touch install of sdvoe video-over-ip

To take the complexity out of your AV-over-IP deployments, NETGEAR created M4300 switches that are preconfigured for SDVoE. Connect your SDVoE encoders and decoders, power on the switch – it just works!
