The new NETGEAR Multi-Gigabit Switches provide additional options for 2.5 and 5 Gbps if the device and cabling support it.

Each of the multi-speed copper Ethernet ports automatically detects the speed requested by the connected device, the quality of the cabling and provides the appropriate connection at one of five speeds.

Netgear has launched its new 5-speed Multi-Gigabit switching products. All of the devices in a business, small office or home can now run at their individual highest speeds as the ports on the switches automatically adapt to the optimal speed required on a per-port basis.

Businesses are able to combine legacy Ethernet speeds like 100 Mbps or 1Gbps with 10 Gbps and now 2.5 and 5 Gbps for the newest devices, without needing to install expensive new cabling to alleviate speed barriers. XS505M 5-Port 10-Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch with SFP+ Port — available now for Rs 28,000.

Other 10-Gigabit switches provide a standard 1-Gigabit connectivity to any device requiring less than 10Gbps, but the new NETGEAR Multi-Gigabit Switches provide additional options for 2.5 and 5 Gbps if the device and cabling support it.

Each of the multi-speed copper Ethernet ports automatically detects the speed requested by the connected device, the quality of the cabling and provides the appropriate connection at one of five speeds.

Networking devices such as  network cards, gaming PCs, desktop PCs, servers, and AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points now offer both 2.5-Gigabit or 5-Gigabit connectivity.
