M4250−26G4F−PoE+ is a NETGEAR managed switch designed for 1Gb AVoIP deployments. It is out−of−the−box preconfigured for the KDS−7 encoders and decoders with zero configuration and is fully scalable.
It features 24 1G PoE+ ports with 480W PoE budget, 2 1GBase−T ports and 4 SFP+ ports. It has a front black display panel with status and is possible to reverse mount with ports in the front. The software−controlled fan adjustments enable the choice of fanless, quiet or cool operations. A wide range of management features are available for IT admins via an easy−to−use web console and a dedicated AV web−based interface at [switch IP address:8080] for AV installations.
The NETGEAR M4250 series ranges from 8 to 48 ports with a variety of PoE+ and Ultra90 PoE++ options for 15.4W, 30W, 60W, 75W and 90W AVoIP endpoints.
Uplink options include 1G for audio installations or standalone video installations as well as 10G uplinks for larger scale video deployments.
Also includes 12–port multi–gigabit Ethernet and 16–port 1G/10G fiber models for plug and play aggregation in a star topology.
Designed for a clean integration with traditional, rack–mounted, AV equipment.
A second pair of rackmount ears allows the switches to be mounted recessed by 2–inches to allow for the cabling.
Threaded holes on the bottom (4xM5 for 50x100mm VESA) and in front (1xM10 for clamps) allow for universal mounting options outside the rack as well.
For audio, profiles for Dante, Q–SYS and AES67 are built–in, as well as an AVB profile (AVB license sold separately).
To further simplify star deployments, NETGEAR IGMP Plus™ brings multicast automation between all M4250 switches, and with M4300/M4500.
Auto–Trunk and Auto–LAG simply connect M4250 switches together.
All M4250 switches share the same high–end NETGEAR Layer 2 / Layer 3 switching engine for a consistent experience.
All switches in the M4250 series have another main, IT web–based GUI for midsize Enterprise campus networks, IoT and IPTV.
Additional features include static, RIP and PIM–SM, DM and SSM multicast routing, DHCP Server and PTPv2 Transparent Clock (1–step E2E).
Efficient authentication tiering with successive DOT1X, MAB and Captive Portal methods for streamlined BYOD.
Comprehensive IPv4/IPv6 static and dynamic routing including Policy–based routing and 6–to–4 tunneling.
Advanced IPv4/IPv6 security implementation including malicious code detection, DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard protection and DoS attacks mitigation.
