Publication date:   02 November 2020
Document number:    220143


Edge networks carry critical applications for businesses large and small. In these deployments resilience and reliability can be as important as performance. Increasingly, edge switches need to have the type of reliability usually associated with chassis-based switches. NETGEARā€™s M4300 Intelligent Edge Switch family combine high performance with non-stop forwarding (NSF) to provide enterprise-class reliability.

NETGEAR commissioned Tolly to benchmark the performance, stack failover and power consumption of the NETGEAR M4300-52G LAN switch and compare that to the Aruba 2930F-48G-4SFP+ and the Cisco Systems SG550X-48P switches. Testing was performed both on single switches and a stack of three switches from each vendor.

The NETGEAR M4300 switch demonstrated line rate performance at all frame sizes for both GbE and 10GbE ports. This performance was better than the Aruba 2930F and matched that of the Cisco SG550X.
