The new series presents itself with logos in a new design, which you will also see on other new Softing IT Networks devices in the future.
The NetXpert XG2 series is analogous to the NetXpert series as follows:
NetXpert XG2-PLUS Network/cabling qualifier for copper and fiber up to 10Gb/s
NetXpert XG2 - 10G Network/cabling qualifier for copper up to 10Gb/s and optional fiber optic
NetXpert XG2 - 2.5/5G Network/cabling qualifier for copper up to 5Gb/s and optional fiber optic
NetXpert XG2 - 1G Network/cabling qualifier for copper up to 1Gb/s and optional fiber optic
As with the XG Series, any version of the XG2 Series can be upgraded to higher performance levels through license upgrades. An extension kit for the XG2 - 10G is also available for qualifying fiber optic cabling, as with the XG series (Article number: 226738).
The NetXpert XG series will be discontinued as of 9/1/2021 and will no longer be commercially available. Softing expects to provide spare parts, repairs and technical support for the NetXpert XG series for at least 5 years.
The NetXpert XG2 series is available now, but there may be slightly increased delivery times in the first weeks due to the already very strong demand.
