Netgear ProSafe GSM7328FS 28 SFP Gigabit Layer 3 Managed Stackable Switch

NETGEAR's low-cost, stackable, Gigabit Ethernet switch delivers maximum throughput and flexibility where you need it to high-speed, high-density workgroups at the edge of the network, in the backbone of growing networks or for bandwidth-thirsty file and application servers. The ProSafe GSM7328FS delivers 24 hot-swappable SFP Gigabit interfaces for fiber connectivity and 4 combo ports of auto-sensing 10/100/1000 Mbps interfaces for copper connectivity. Switches has four high-speed, module bays offering modular expansion for 10 Gigabit Ethernet or 24 Gigabit Stacking connectivity. The non-blocking design of the switch delivers simultaneous, full wire-speed, low-latency throughput to all ports.
