Layer Supported3
The trend of moving matrix switching into the Ethernet network is accelerating and AV over IP already delivers capabilities far beyond that of a traditional matrix switch. Historically it has been simple to design AV over IP systems of up to 96 I/Os using a single switch and Layer-2 Multicast IGMP. However, larger installations required data center-class 100G Ethernet switches with more complex Layer-3 multicast routing techniques, adding complexity and cost to the Ethernet infrastructure. As networked AV systems become ever larger, a new class of switches has come to market. They combine the configurability of a matrix switch with the power and scalability of Ethernet to support hundreds of AV over IP endpoints, at a price point dramatically cheaper than comparable matrix switches. Introducing two new 100GE enabled switches for ProAV, the M4500 series. Removing the need for Layer-3 PIM routing, these new switches offer IGMP Plus and greatly simplify system architectures with the same well-known Layer-2 techniques across the entire AV over IP network. Installers opting to use M4500 switches in their installation will find that it is already preconfigured out of the box.HighlightsA 10G to 100G solution The M4500-32C offers 32-port QSFP28 preconfigured for 100G and can support 40G QSFP+ and 50G QSFP28 optics or DAC cables The M4500-48XF8C offers 48-port SFP28 preconfigured for 10G with 8-port 100G QSFP28 uplinks, and the SFP28 ports can support 10G and 25G For Pro AV installations Installers opting to use M4500 switches in their installation will find that it is already preconfigured out of the box True AV and multicast Zero Touch network configuration: Connect AV-over-IP encoders and decoders, and power on the switch. It just works! Intelligent IGMP Plus IGMP Plus multicast allows for scalable Pro AV installations at Layer 2 without the PIM (Protocol Independent Multicast) complexity IGMP Plus is default on VLAN 1 out of the box and can be configured on another VLAN for automatic IGMP across M4500 and M4300 switches on that VLAN Higher availability Meet the requirements of high performance, high availability, fast scale out, low latency performance, and continuous serviceability in sensible applications The M4500 switches offer 1+1 power and 4+2 fan redundancy, an x86 Intel Atom® Processor C3558 with 8GB DDR3/ECC RAM and 128GB SSD storage Industry standard management The M4500 switches come with an industry standard command line interface (CLI), SSH, SNMP, sFlow, and MLAG An out of band 1 Gigabit Ethernet port facilitates management, with simplified macro-commands for AV-over-IP configuration Industry leading warranty NETGEAR M4500 series is covered under NETGEAR ProSAFE Limited Lifetime Hardware Warranty 90 days of Technical Support via phone and email, Lifetime Technical Support through online chat and Lifetime Next Business Day hardware replacement
