Network-equipment maker Netgear made its name in the consumer space but a slew of new product announcements makes it clear the company has designs on even bigger business opportunities.
As Enterprise Networking Planet reports, the company’s new 10 Gbps managed switch and network management system will give small and midsized companies an alternative to offerings from established players such as Cisco Systems and HP.
Among the advanced capabilities on the new XSM7224S is support for IPv6 as well as QoS (quality of service) features.
On the network management side, Netgear is rolling out its new NMS200 ProSafe Network Management System. Newton explained that the NMS is a software platform that will run on several different Windows platforms including Windows XP, Windows Server (2003 & 2008), Windows7 (32 and 64 bit).
What does it takes to compete in the midsized enterprise networking market?
For networking vendor Netgear, part of competing in the enterprise networking space is about continuing to deliver new products that expands their portfolio. This week Netgear announced a new 10 Gigabit per second (Gbps) managed switch and a network management system.
The new products are all part of Netgear’s growing position in the midsized enterprise networking space as it ramps up competition against rivals including Cisco and HP.
