Test System Setup
Ideally, we would run the Netgear ProSAFE XS712T with all eight ports at 10GbE, but we're still building our test lab.
For our test today, we're using one of the 10GBase-T ports on a GIGABYTE GA-7PESH2 dual-processor board and a Supermicro X9SRH-7TF single-socket motherboard. Both have onboard 10GBase-T. The third system uses an Intel X520-SR2 PCIe card so we can test the SFP+ port on the Netgear ProSAFE XS708E.
