  • 1Description

The M7100 Series 24-Port ProSafe 10 Gigabit Managed Switch from Netgear is a fully managed switch for the 1G/10G server access layer in campus and enterprise networks, and for high-density 10GbE backbone architectures. It delivers line-rate performance for top-of-rack virtualization or convergence, without having to pay the exorbitant acquisition and maintenance costs associated by other networking vendors. Netgear 10 Gigabit Aggregation solutions combine latest advances in hardware and software engineering for higher availability, lower latency and stronger security, at a high-value price point. Like all Netgear products, the M7100 series delivers more functionality with less difficulty: Auto-iSCSI optimization, Private VLANs and Local Proxy ARP take the complexity out of delivering network services for virtualized servers and 10 Gigabit infrastructures.

Layer 2+ with Static Routing
The switch series comes with Port/VLAN/Subnet based static routing Layer 2+ versions
L3 fixed routes to the next hop towards the destination network are added to the routing table
L3 routing is wire-speed in the M7100 series hardware with up to 128 static routes (IPv4)
10 Gigabit Transition with Base-T
10GBase-T, like other Base-T technologies, uses the standard RJ45 Ethernet jack
It is backwards compatible, auto-negotiating between higher and lower speeds thereby not forcing an all at once network equipment upgrade
Cat5/Cat5E are supported for Gigabit speeds when Cat6 twisted pair copper cabling is a minimum requirement for 10 Gigabit up to 30 meters
Cat6A or newer Cat7 cabling allow for up to 100 meter 10GBase-T connections
Top-of-the-Line Performance and IPv6 Ready
32K MAC addresses; 480Gbps switching fabric; 12K jumbo frames; Auto-iSCSI Flow Acceleration; Auto-EEE Energy Efficient Ethernet
IPv4/IPv6 comprehensive traffic filtering (ACLs) and prioritization (QoS - DiffServ)
Top-of-rack availability
Two redundant, hot-swap power supplies
Two removable fan trays provide front-to-back cooling airflow for best compatibility with data center hot aisle/cold aisle airflow patterns 1

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
Fully functional Web console (GUI) for IT admins who prefer an easy to use graphical interface Layer-3 Hardware with L2+ Software Affordability M7100 series models are built upon L3 hardware platform while Layer 2+ software package allows for better budget optimization
It uses latest generation silicon low-power 65-nanometer technology
L2 and L3 switching features (access control list, classification, filtering, IPv4 routing) are performed in hardware at interface line rate for voice, video, and data convergence
Layer 2+ software packages provides straight forward IP static routing capabilities for physical interfaces, VLANs and subnets
At the edge of campus networks or in the server room, static routes are often preferred for simplicity (L3 fixed routes to the next hop towards the destination network are manually added to the routing table), without any impact on performance because L3 routing is wire-speed in M7100 series hardware

Low latency at all network speeds, including 10 Gigabit Copper links
Jumbo frames support of up to 12Kb accelerating storage performance for backup and cloud applications
iSCSI Flow Acceleration and Automatic Protection/QoS for virtualization and server room networks containing iSCSI initiators and iSCSI targets by detecting the establishment and termination of iSCSI sessions and connections by snooping packets used in the iSCSI protocol, maintaining a database of currently active iSCSI sessions and connections to store data about the participants for the formulation of classifier rules giving the data packets for the session the desired QoS treatment, installing and removing classifier rule sets as needed for the iSCSI session traffic, monitoring activity in the iSCSI sessions to allow for aging out session entries if the session termination packets are not received, avoiding session interruptions during times of congestion that would otherwise cause iSCSI packets to be dropped
Ease of Deployment
Automatic configuration with DHCP and BootP Auto Install eases large deployments with a scalable configuration files management capability, mapping IP addresses and host names and providing individual configuration files to multiple switches as soon as they are initialized on the network
Both the Switch Serial Number and Switch primary MAC address are reported by a simple show command in the CLI, facilitating discovery and remote configuration operations
Automatic Voice over IP prioritization with Auto-VoIP simplifies most complex multi-vendor IP telephones deployments either based on protocols (SIP, H323 and SCCP) or on OUI bytes (default database and user-based OUIs) in the phone source MAC address, providing the best class of service to VoIP streams (both data and signaling) over other ordinary traffic by classifying traffic, and enabling correct egress queue configuration
An associated Voice VLAN can be easily configured with Auto-VoIP for further traffic isolation
When deployed IP phones are LLDP-MED compliant, the Voice VLAN will use LLDP-MED to pass on the VLAN ID, 802.1P priority and DSCP values to the IP phones, accelerating convergent deployments
Versatile Connectivity
Large 10 Gigabit choice for access with 10GBase-T ports for legacy Cat6 RJ45 short connections (up to 300m) and Cat6A/Cat 7 connections up to 100m and SFP+ ports for fiber optic uplinks or short, low-latency copper DAC cables
Automatic MDIX and Auto-negotiation on all ports select the right transmission modes (half or full duplex) as well as data transmission for crossover or straight-through cables dynamically
100 Mb/s and 1000 Mb/s backwards compatibility on all 10GBase-T RJ45 ports
1000Mb/s backward compatibility on all SFP+ fiber ports
IPv6 support with multicasting (MLD for IPv6 filtering), ACLs and QoS
Tier 1 Availability
Multi-Chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG) for distributed link aggregation across two independant switches
A server with two Ethernet ports (or any Ethernet device such as an edge switch) can use Ethernet channeling or LACP bonding across two M7100 series
Active-active teaming across two separate fabrics at Layer 2 without creating loops
Load-balancing and automatic failover ensure greater bandwidth network layers and maximize redundancy
Rapid Spanning Tree (RSTP) and Multiple Spanning Tree (MSTP) allow for rapid transitioning of the ports to the Forwarding state and the suppression of Topology Change Notification
IP address conflict detection performed by the embedded DHCP server prevents accidental
IP address duplicates from perturbing the overall network stability
Power redundancy for higher availability when mission critical, including hot-swap PSUs and Fans
Ease of Management and Control
Dual firmware image and dual configuration file for transparent firmware updates/configuration changes with minimum service interruption
Flexible Port-Channel/LAG (802.3ad) implementation for maximum compatibility, fault tolerance and load sharing with any type of Ethernet channeling from other vendors switch, server or storage devices conforming to IEEE 802.3ad - including static (selectable hashing algorithms) or dynamic LAGs (highly tunable LACP Link Aggregation Control Protocol)
Unidirectional Link Detection Protocol (UDLD) and Aggressive UDLD detect and avoid unidirectional links automatically, in order to prevent forwarding anomalies in a Layer
2-communication channel in which a bi-directional link stops passing traffic in one direction Port names feature allows for descriptive names on all interfaces and better clarity in real word admin daily tasks
SDM (System Data Management, or switch database) templates allow for granular system resources distribution depending on IPv4 or IPv6 applications. ARP Entries (the maximum number of entries in the IPv4 Address Resolution Protocol ARP cache for routing interfaces), IPv4 Unicast Routes (the maximum number of IPv4 unicast forwarding table entries), IPv6 NDP Entries (the maximum number of IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol NDP cache entries), IPv6 Unicast Routes (the maximum number of IPv6 unicast forwarding table entries), ECMP Next Hops (the maximum number of next hops that can be installed in the IPv4 and IPv6 unicast forwarding tables), IPv4 Multicast Routes (the maximum number of IPv4 multicast forwarding table entries) and IPv6 Multicast Routes (the maximum number of IPv6 multicast forwarding table entries)
Loopback interfaces management for routing protocols administration
Private VLANs and local Proxy ARP help reduce broadcast with added security
Management VLAN ID is user selectable for best convenience
Industry-standard VLAN management in the command line interface (CLI) for all common operations such as VLAN creation, VLAN names, VLAN make static for dynamically created VLAN by GRVP registration, VLAN trunking, VLAN participation as well as VLAN ID (PVID) and VLAN tagging for one interface, a group of interfaces or all interfaces at once
System defaults automatically set per-port broadcast, multicast, and unicast storm control for typical, robust protection against DoS attacks and faulty clients which can, with BYOD, often create network and performance issues
IP Telephony administration is simplified with consistent Voice VLAN capabilities per the industry standards and automatic functions associated
Comprehensive set of system utilities and Clear commands help troubleshoot connectivity issues and restore various configurations to their factory defaults for maximum admin efficiency, trace route (to discover the routes that packets actually take when traveling on a hop-by-hop basis and with a synchronous response when initiated from the CLI), clear dynamically learned MAC addresses, counters, IGMP snooping table entries from the Multicast forwarding database
All major centralized software distribution platforms are supported for central software upgrades and configuration files management (HTTP, TFTP), including in highly secured versions (HTTPS, SFTP, SCP)
Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) can be used to synchronize network resources and for adaptation of NTP, and can provide synchronized network timestamp either in broadcast or unicast mode (SNTP client implemented over UDP - port 123)
Embedded RMON (4 groups) and sFlow agents permit external network traffic analysis
Engineered for Convergence
Audio (Voice over IP) and Video (multicasting) comprehensive switching, filtering, routing, and prioritization
Auto-VoIP, Voice VLAN and LLDP-MED support for IP phones QoS and VLAN configuration
IGMP Snooping for IPv4, MLD Snooping for IPv6 and Querier mode facilitate fast receivers joins and leaves for multicast streams and ensure multicast traffic only reaches interested receivers without the need of a Multicast router
Multicast VLAN Registration (MVR) uses a dedicated Multicast VLAN to forward multicast streams and avoid duplication for clients in different VLANs
Enterprise Security
Traffic control MAC Filter and Port Security help restrict the traffic allowed into and out of specified ports or interfaces in the system in order to increase overall security and block MAC address flooding issues
DHCP snooping monitors: Due to DHCP traffic between DHCP clients and DHCP servers it filters harmful DHCP message and builds a bindings database of (MAC address, IP address, VLAN ID, port) tuples that are considered authorized in order to prevent DHCP server spoofing attacks
IP Source Guard and Dynamic ARP Inspection use the DHCP snoop binding database per port and per VLAN to drop incoming packets that do not match any binding and to enforce source IP/MAC addresses for malicious users traffic elimination
Layer 2/Layer 3-v4/Layer 3-v6/Layer 4 Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be binded to ports, Layer 2 interfaces, VLANs and LAGs (Link Aggregation Groups or Port channel) for fast unauthorized data prevention and right granularity ACLs on CPU interface (Control Plane ACLs) are used to define the IP/MAC or protocol through which management access is allowed for increased HTTP/HTTPS or Telnet/SSH management security
Bridge protocol data unit (BPDU) Guard allows the network administrator to enforce the Spanning Tree (STP) domain borders and keep the active topology consistent and predictable - unauthorized devices or switches behind the edge ports that have BPDU enabled will not be able to influence the overall STP topology by creating loops
Spanning Tree Root Guard (STRG) enforces the Layer 2 network topology by preventing rogue root bridges potential issues when for instance, unauthorized or unexpected new equipment in the network may accidentally become a root bridge for a given VLAN
Dynamic 802.1x VLAN assignment mode, including Dynamic VLAN creation mode and Guest VLAN/unauthenticated VLAN are supported for rigorous user and equipment RADIUS policy server enforcement
Up to 48 clients (802.1x) per port are supported, including the authentication of the users domain, in order to facilitate convergent deployments
802.1x MAC Address Authentication Bypass (MAB) is a list of authorized MAC addresses of client NICs is maintained on the RADIUS server for MAB purpose, MAB can be configured on a per-port basis on the switch, MAB initiates only after the dot1x authentication process times out, and only when clients don't respond to any of the EAPOL packets sent by the switch when 802.1X unaware clients try to connect, the switch sends the MAC address of each client to the authentication server, the RADIUS server checks the MAC address of the client NIC against the list of authorized addresses, the RADIUS server returns the access policy and VLAN assignment to the switch for each client. Double VLANs (DVLAN - QoQ) pass traffic from one customer domain to another through the metro core in a multi-tenancy environment, customer VLAN IDs are preserved and a service provider VLAN ID is added to the traffic so the traffic so the traffic can pass the metro core in a simple, secure manner
Private VLANs (with Primary VLAN, Isolated VLAN, Community VLAN, Promiscuous port, Host port, Trunks) provide Layer 2 isolation between ports that share the same broadcast domain, allowing a VLAN broadcast domain to be partitioned into smaller point-to-multipoint sub-domains across switches in the same Layer 2 network
Private VLANs are useful in DMZ when servers are not supposed to communicate with each other but need to communicate with a router; they remove the need for more complex port-based VLANs with respective IP interface/subnets and associated L3 routing
Another Private VLANs typical application is carrier-class deployments when users shouldn't see snoop or attack other users' traffic
Secure Shell (SSH) and SNMPv3 (with or without MD5 or SHA authentication) ensure SNMP and Telnet sessions are secure
Superior Quality of Service
Advanced classifier-based hardware implementation for Layer 2 (MAC), Layer 3 (IP) and Layer 4 (UDP/TCP transport ports) prioritization
Eight queues for priorities and various QoS policies based on 802.1p (CoS) and DiffServ can be applied to interfaces and VLANs
Advanced rate limiting down to 1 Kbps granularity and mininum-guaranteed bandwidth can be associated with ACLs for best granularity
Automatic Voice over IP prioritization with Auto-VoIP
iSCSI Flow Acceleration and automatic protection/QoS with Auto-iSCSI
Flow Control
802.3x Flow Control implementation per IEEE 802.3 Annex 31 B specifications with Symmetric flow control, Asymmetric flow control, or No flow control
Asymmetric flow control allows the switch to respond to received PAUSE frames, but the ports cannot generate PAUSE frames
Symmetric flow control allows the switch to both respond to, and generates MAC control PAUSE frames
Allows traffic from one device to be throttled for a specified period of time: a device that wishes to inhibit transmission of data frames from another device on the LAN transmits a PAUSE frame
UDLD Support
UDLD implementation detects unidirectional links physical ports (UDLD must be enabled on both sides of the link in order to detect a unidirectional link)
UDLD protocol operates by exchanging packets containing information about neighboring devices
The purpose is to detect and avoid unidirectional link forwarding anomalies in a Layer 2 communication channel in which a bi-directional link stops passing traffic in one direction
Both normal-mode and aggressive-mode are supported for perfect compatibility with other vendor's implementations, including port D-Disable triggering cases in both modes
Better Efficiency
Mid-sized organizations are optimizing their data centers and server rooms by consolidating servers to free up space, power, and management overhead. The first step usually involves consolidating applications onto fewer servers than the old single-application/server paradigm. Often, the next step is server virtualization. Server virtualization supports several applications and operating systems on a single sever by defining multiple virtual machines (VMs) on the server. Each virtual machine operates like a standalone, physical machine, yet shares the physical server processing power, ensuring no processing power is wasted. IT departments can reduce server inventory, better utilize servers, and manage resources more efficiently. Server virtualization relies heavily on networking and storage. Virtual machines grow and require larger amounts of storage than one physical server can provide. Network attached storage (NAS) or storage area networks (SANs) provide additional, dedicated storage for virtual machines. Connectivity between servers and storage must be fast to avoid bottlenecks. 10GbE provides the fastest interconnectivity for virtualized environments.
Simpler and More Cost-Effective
Reduced Equipment and Management Costs: 10GbE networking components are less expensive than highly specialized Fiber Channel components and do not require a specialized skill set for installation and management
Enhanced Server Management: iSCSI remote boot eliminates booting each server from its own direct-attached disk. Instead, servers can boot from an operating system image on the SAN. This is particularly advantageous for using diskless servers in rack-mount or blade server applications
Improved Disaster Recovery: All information on a local SAN including boot information, operating system images, applications, and data can be duplicated on a remote SAN for quick and complete disaster recovery
Excellent Performance: Even transactional virtual machines, such as databases, can run over 10 Gigabit Ethernet and iSCSI SAN, without compromising performance
10 Gigabit Ethernet and the Aggregation Layer
Less Fiber Usage: A 10 Gigabit Ethernet link uses fewer strands compared with Gigabit Ethernet aggregation, which uses one strand per Gigabit Ethernet link. Using 10 Gigabit Ethernet reduces cabling complexity and uses existing cabling efficiently
Greater Support for Large Streams: Traffic over aggregated 1GB Ethernet links can be limited to 1 Gb/s streams because of packet sequencing requirements on end devices. 10 GB Ethernet can more effectively support applications that generate multi Gigabit streams due to the greater capacity in a single 10GB Ethernet link
Longer Deployment Lifetimes: 10 Gigabit Ethernet provides greater scalability than multiple Gigabit Ethernet links, resulting in a more future-proof network. Up to eight 10 Gigabit Ethernet links can be aggregated into a virtual 80 Gb/s connection
