NETGEAR Launches S3600 Series Smart Switches to Tackle Workplace Connectivity Challenges

December 20, 2023

In response to escalating demands for high-bandwidth applications in today's workplaces, NETGEAR has announced its latest solution – the cloud-managed NETGEAR S3600 Series Smart Switches. These switches address connectivity issues such as drops, slow speeds, and bottlenecks that are commonly experienced in fast-paced business environments.

The S3600 Series includes the XS508TM 8-Port 10G/Multi-Gigabit and XS516TM 16-Port 10G/Multi-Gigabit switches, offering flexible and auto-adaptive wired connectivity for high-bandwidth devices. They also provide an effective solution for businesses seeking faster networking capabilities.

What sets the S3600 Series apart is its intuitive web management, simplifying initial configuration and enabling faster onboarding at the network's access layer. Equipped with 2 x 10G SFP+ Fiber uplink ports, the switches also support local 10G servers and facilitate uplink aggregation to the business's network core.

Advanced features of the S3600 Series include IPv6 Layer 2+/3 static routing, DiffServ QoS policies, LACP, and DHCP. These cater to the diverse needs of medium to large businesses and help to ensure that they can all achieve seamless connectivity and optimized performance.

“Business owners face constant pressure as their organization grows – like managing networking bandwidth, especially when the number of high-bandwidth devices continues to increase at the workplace,” said Iphie Chen, Senior Product Line Manager at NETGEAR.

“With our latest launch, business owners can choose the 8-Port or 16-Port 10G/Multi-Gigabit switch that caters to their specific networking needs, while also enabling some room to grow. As part of the Total Network Solution, the new S3600 Smart Switch Series provides easy-to-configure setup and management, which is critical especially for any business that may lack the onsite IT resources that most enterprise solutions require.”

To take user convenience even further, the company also integrates the switches with the NETGEAR Insight cloud management platform. This platform allows for comprehensive remote configuration and troubleshooting not only for the S3600 Series Smart Switches, but also for NETGEAR Pro Routers and Pro WiFi Access Points. That means network managers can have full control over configuration, deployment, monitoring, and troubleshooting – all from a single, user-friendly interface.

NETGEAR offers a Limited Lifetime* warranty and 24/7 technical support, ensuring peace of mind and expert assistance when needed.
