The Best Non-manageable Switches with 10Gbps Ports

switches-10g-portsIn a home environment with one or more NAS servers, users need to be able to transfer data at the maximum possible speed. Non-manageable 10G switches are a very interesting option because of their great value for money, and, in addition, they are mostly desktop switches, so we can place them anywhere without problems, since we will not need to root them. Today in RedesZone we are going to make a compilation of the best non-manageable switches with 10G ports , capable of providing high speed, and also manageable to configure them in detail.




With the passage of time, manufacturers such as ASUS, NETGEAR and QNAP, have been launching different models of switches with 10G ports, although in some of these models that we are going to recommend, not all ports are 10G, but they combine technology 1000BASE-T with 10GBASE-T technology, with the aim of saving costs, and therefore making the equipment more affordable for users.

In this article we are going to classify the different switches not manageable by brands, and within a certain brand, we will put the exact model of the equipment, and if it exists, we will give you our complete performance analysis. This list will be expanded as new unmanageable switches with 10G ports come out, or that we have been able to test in RedesZone.

ASUS

The manufacturer ASUS was one of the first to launch a desktop switch with 10G ports, currently only has one model, but soon more models will come combining 10GBASE-T ports and SFP + ports.

ASUS XG-U2008

The main features of this unmanageable switch are that it has 10 Ethernet ports. Two ports are 10GBASE-T with the NBASE-T standard, or also known as Multigigabit, therefore, in these two ports we can synchronize at speeds of 100Mbps / 1000Mbps and also 2.5G / 5G and finally at 10Gbps. The remaining eight ports are Gigabit Ethernet ports for the LAN, with a speed of up to 1Gbps Full Duplex.

ASUS XG-U2008

The highlight of this switch is its design, it is finished in aluminum and is perfect to put on the table, in addition, it does not incorporate any fan, so it is completely silent, ideal for domestic or small office environments.

QNAP

QNAP initially launched two switches with 10G ports that were enrackable, however, in the following months it has launched two other models of switches with 10G ports that are desktop.

QNAP QSW-308-1C

The main features of this unmanageable switch are the incorporation of a total of 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports (10/100/1000 Mbps) for the LAN, but, in addition, it incorporates a total of 3 10G ports to connect equipment that needs high speeds of transfer. These three 10G ports are formed by two dedicated SFP + ports, and another SFP + / RJ-45 Combo port, therefore, in the latter case we can use the 10GBASE-T connection or the SFP +, but not both at the same time. The 10GBASE-T port is Multigigabit, so we can synchronize at speeds of 100Mbps, 1Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 5Gbps and 10Gbps.

The most remarkable thing about this switch is its design with a glossy white finished plastic, in addition, it does not incorporate any fan, so it is completely silent, ideal for domestic or small office environments.

QNAP QSW-308S

This switch is very similar to the previous model, in fact, it is physically exactly the same. The main difference is that we do not have a 10GBASE-T port, all 10G ports are SFP +, so we will have to use DAC cables or transceivers and fiber optics. The summary of features of this switch is that it incorporates a total of 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports (10/100 / 1000Mbps), and a total of 3 dedicated SFP + ports.

EUR 191.78

This switch incorporates the same design in glossy white finished plastic, does not incorporate any fan, and is therefore completely silent, ideal for home or small office environments.


QNAP QSW-804-4C

This unmanageable switch model was the first from the manufacturer QNAP. The main features of this switch is that it incorporates a total of 4 dedicated SFP + ports at 10Gbps, and four other 10GBASE-T / SFP + Combo ports, therefore, we will really have a total of 8 10G ports on this switch, since the Combo ports They cannot be used simultaneously.

A very important feature is that the four 10GBASE-T ports incorporate Multigigabit technology, therefore, we can synchronize at speeds of 2.5G and 5G as well, ideal to adapt perfectly to the wiring distance and the technology used by the Ethernet network card .

EUR 438.74

This switch model does have an aspect of professional switch enrackable, in addition, it is finished in a metal chassis, it incorporates two fans to maintain the cooling of the internal components, therefore, it is not completely silent, but the fans incorporate an intelligent cooling, so they adapt depending on the internal temperature of the components.


QNAP QSW-1208-8C

The main features of this switch is that it incorporates a total of 4 dedicated SFP + ports at 10Gbps, and another eight 10GBASE-T / SFP + Combo ports, therefore, we will really have a total of 12 10G ports on this switch, since the Combo ports They cannot be used simultaneously.

A very important feature is that the eight 10GBASE-T ports (which are Combo with SFP +) incorporate Multigigabit technology, therefore, we can synchronize at speeds of 2.5G and 5G as well, ideal to adapt perfectly to the wiring distance and the technology that uses the Ethernet network card.

EUR 536.80

This switch model does have an aspect of professional switch enrackable, in addition, it is finished in a metal chassis, it incorporates two fans to maintain the cooling of the internal components, therefore, it is not completely silent, but the fans incorporate an intelligent cooling, so they adapt depending on the internal temperature of the components.


NETGEAR

The manufacturer NETGEAR is one of the leaders in the world of switching, and in its product list we will find different models of switches with 10G ports manageable, and also not manageable. This time we are going to talk about the three models of NETGEAR unmanageable switches that we currently have.

NETGEAR GS110MX

The main features of this NETGEAR GS110MX switch is the incorporation of a total of 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports for the LAN, and it also has a total of 2 10GBASE-T ports, these ports incorporate Multigigabit support (NBASE-T), so We can synchronize at speeds of 100Mbps / 1Gbps / 2.5Gbps / 5Gbps and also at speeds of 10Gbps.

EUR 191.82

This switch model does have an aspect of professional switch enrackable, in addition, it is finished in a metal chassis. This model is fanless, that is, it does not incorporate a fan to maintain the cooling of the internal components, therefore, it is completely silent. NETGEAR has another model that is exactly the same as this one, but it has a website to manage it professionally, the model is the NETGEAR GS110EMX, and it is very interesting if you are interested in this model with certain management options.


NETGEAR XS505M

The main features of this NETGEAR XS505M switch is the incorporation of a total of 4 10GBASE-T ports, these ports incorporate Multigigabit support (NBASE-T), so we can synchronize at speeds of 100Mbps / 1Gbps / 2.5Gbps / 5Gbps and also at a speed of 10Gbps. In addition, this model has a 10Gbps SFP + port to use DAC cables or a transceiver and fiber optic.

EUR 239.00

This switch model does have an aspect of professional switch enrackable, in addition, it is finished in a metal chassis, incorporates a fan to maintain the cooling of the internal components, therefore, it is not completely silent, it is something that we must take into account , but NETGEAR indicates that this fan produces very little noise (22.5dBA specifically).


NETGEAR XS508M

The main features of this NETGEAR XS508M switch is the incorporation of a total of 7 dedicated 10GBASE-T ports, these ports incorporate Multigigabit support (NBASE-T), so we can synchronize at speeds of 100Mbps / 1Gbps / 2.5Gbps / 5Gbps and also at a speed of 10Gbps. In addition, this model has an additional 10GBASE-T / SFP + Combo port at 10Gbps to use DAC cables or a transceiver and optical fiber, an important detail is that being “Combo” we will not have both ports available simultaneously.
