The switch functions as a simple switch without the Getting Started with the AV UI 5 Audio Video User Manual AV Line of Fully Managed Switches M4250 Series management software. However, you can use the management software to configure many advanced features that can improve AV flows, switch efficiency, and overall network performance. The switch software includes a set of comprehensive management features for configuring and monitoring the switch through one of the following methods: • Audio-video local browser user interface (AV UI), either over an Ethernet network port or over the out-of-band (OOB) port (also referred to as the service port). • Main local browser user interface (main UI), either over an Ethernet network port or over the OOB port. • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) • Command-line interface (CLI) Each of the standards-based management methods allows you to configure and monitor the components of the switch. The method you use to manage the system depends on your network size and requirements, and on your preference. This manual describes how to use the audio-video (AV) local browser user interface (UI) to manage and monitor the switch. We abbreviate the audio-video local browser UI as the AV UI. The AV UI is a web-based management tool that lets you configure and manage audio-video and othertypes of network profiles remotely using a standard web browser. Note: To configure all available switch features, including VLANs, QoS, and ACLs, use the main UI. Use a web browser to log in to the AV UI If this is the first time that you log in to the switch and you must use the default IP address of the switch, see the information in the installation guide. You can use a web browser to access the switch and log in. You must be able to ping the IP address of the management interface or out-of-band (OOB) port from your computer for web access to be available. Note: The first time that you log in as an admin user to either the AV UI or the main UI, no password is required (that is, the password is blank). After you log in for the first time, you are required to specify a local device password that you must use each subsequent time that you log in to either the AV UI or the main UI. (Using the main UI, you can change the password again.) Getting Started with the AV UI 6 Audio Video User Manual AV Line of Fully Managed Switches M4250 Series Log in to the AV UI using the switch default IP address To use the switch default IP address to access the switch over the AV UI: 1. Prepare your computer with a static IP address: • Ethernet network port. For access over an Ethernet network port, use a static IP address in the 169.254.0.0 subnet with subnet mask 255.255.0.0. For example, use 169.254.100.201 for your computer. • OOB port. For access overthe OOB port, use a static IP address in the 192.168.0.0 subnet with subnet mask 255.255.0.0. For example, use 192.168.0.201 for your computer. 2. Connect an Ethernet cable from an Ethernet port on your computer to either an Ethernet network port on the switch or to the OOB port on the switch. 3. Launch a web browser such as Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge. 4. Enter the default IP address of the switch in the web browser address field: • Ethernet network port.

Getting Started with the AV UI 8 Audio Video User Manual 2 Manage Audio-Video Profile Templates and Network Profiles The switch provides preconfigured audio-video (AV) profile templates that you can configure and assign to switch ports and VLANs, thereby creating network profiles. You can also set up your own AV profile templates. These are the essential differences between an AV profile template and a network profile: • AV profile template. A preconfigured or custom template with QoS, multicast, or PTP settings, or a combination of these settings, that you can apply to multiple network profiles. • Network profile. An AV profile template that you configured and assigned to one or more switch ports, to a VLAN, and as an option, to a specific IP address. The chapter contains the following sections: • Overview of preconfigured AV profile templates • Change the default Management VLAN profile • Manage network profiles • Manage custom AV profile templates 9 AV Line of Fully Managed Switches M4250 Series Overview of preconfigured AV profile templates An AV profile template integrates NETGEAR proprietary settings, allowing you to optimize specific audio and video environments. You can use an AV profile template to create one or multiple network profiles. For example, you could use the same AV profile template to set up three network profiles based on a location within a building: one network profile for the lobby, one for the theater, and one for the patio. The switch provides the following preconfigured AV profile templates: • Audio Dante. Use this template to connect the switch to Dante audio devices and their controller. • Data. Use this template to connect the switch to streaming ACN (sACN), Art-Net, mobile ad hoc network (MANET), and other network devices as well as to computers. • Audio Q-SYS. Use this template to connect the switch to Q-SYS audio devices and their controller. • Video with Q-SYS audio. Use this template to connect the switch to IP video encoders for transmitting video, IP video decoders for receiving video, and a controller for these devices when Q-SYS audio is supported in the same VLAN. This template can support devices such as Crestron DM NVX systems, AMX SVSI products, Aurora Multimedia products, Atlona products, Dante video products, and products that comply with standardization by the SDVoE Alliance. • Video with AES67 audio. Use this template to connect the switch to IP video encoders for transmitting video, IP video decoders for receiving video, and a controller for these devices when AES67 audio is supported in the same VLAN. This template can support devices such as Crestron DM NVX systems, AMX SVSI products, Aurora Multimedia products, Atlona products, Dante video products, and products that comply with standardization by the SDVoE Alliance. • Audio-over-IP AVB. Use this template to connect the switch to Audio Video Bridging (AVB) devices. • Video. Use this template to connect the switch to IP video encoders for transmitting video, IP video decoders for receiving video, and a controller for these devices when audio is sent and received from the video nodes using another VLAN ID. This template can support devices such as Crestron DM NVX systems, AMX SVSI products, Aurora Multimedia products, Atlona products, Dante video products, and products that comply with standardization by the SDVoE Alliance. • Audio-over-IP AES67.

After you do so, you can use the custom AV profile template to set up one or multiple network profiles (see Use an AV profile template to configure and assign a network profile on page 12). The advantage of a custom AV profile template is that you can decide whether to enable multicast, PTP, and QoS. If you enable QoS, you can specify either a DSCP or CoS configuration. Create a custom AV profile template Before you create a custom AV profile template, consider the following: • Does the template require multicast to be enabled? • Does the template require Precision Time Protocol (PTP) to be enabled? • Does the template require QoS to be enabled, and if so, in a DSCP or CoS configuration? To add one or more QoS configurations, you need knowledge about configuring QoS in a network. Manage Audio-Video Profile 15 Audio Video User Manual Templates and Network Profiles AV Line of Fully Managed Switches M4250 Series Note: You can enable PTP and multicast for a custom AV profile template but you cannot configure the PTP and multicast settings in the AV UI. For DSCP and CoS, you can configure limited settings in the AV UI. To configure PTP and multicast settings and all DSCP and CoS settings that are available on the switch, use the main UI or the CLI. For more information, see the main user manual orthe CLI command reference manual, both of which you can download by visiting netgear.com/support/product/m4250.aspx#download. To create a custom AV profile template: 1. Launch a web browser such as Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge. 2. In the address field of your web browser, enter the IP address of the switch followed by :8080. The Login windows displays. 3. Enter admin as the user name, enter your local device password, and click the Login button. The first time that you log in, no password is required.

Manage Audio-Video Profile 16 Audio Video User Manual Templates and Network Profiles AV Line of Fully Managed Switches M4250 Series 10. To add a QoS configuration to the template, do the following: a. To the right of the Quality of Service section, click the Add QoS link. b. From the QoS Type menu, select one of the following types of QoS: • DSCP. The switch applies QoS according to the information in the DiffServ Code Point (DSCP) field in an incoming IP packet. You must select a value from the Code Point menu and a value from the Priority menu. • CoS. The switch applies QoS according to the Class of Service (CoS) field in an incoming Ethernet frame. You must select a value from the Priority menu and make a selection from the Scheduler Type menu. c. If you select DSCP from the QoS Type menu, from the Code Point menu, select a value from 0 to 63. The DSCP value that you select allows an incoming IP packet to be mapped to the egress queue that you select from the Priority menu in the following step. d. From the Priority menu, select the priority value for the egress queue from 0 to number 6. The priority goes from low (0) to high (6). For example, traffic with a priority value of 0 is for most data traffic and is sent using best effort. Traffic with a higher priority, such as 5 or 6, might be time-sensitive traffic, such as voice or video. The priority value for the egress queue applies to either DSCP or CoS. e. If you select CoS from the QoS Type menu, from the Scheduler Type menu, select one of the following types: • Weighted. The switch uses the weighted round robin (WRR) algorithm to associate a weight with each queue. • Strict. The switch services traffic with the highest priority on a queue first. By default, the queue management type is taildrop, irrespective of your selection from the Scheduler Type menu. You can change the queue management type to weighted random early detection (WRED) by accessing the main UI. f. In the Quality of Service section, click the Save button. The QoS configuration is saved. 11. To add another QoS configuration to the template, repeat the previous step. You can add multiple QoS configurations to a single AV profile template. 12.

Manually control the fans The switch includes internal fans that support intelligent operation, which enables the switch to automatically start the operation of the fans, gradually increase the speed of the fans, and either halt PoE or block traffic if the temperature exceeds a critical level. You can manually control the fans through either the AV UI (see the following procedure) or the command-line interface (CLI). If the fans are functioning in Off mode (which you only can set manually) or in Quiet mode, the switch automatically manages the fans and turns on the fans or gradually increases the speed of the fans under the following conditions: • PoE+ and PoE++ models. Either the temperature detected by the temperature sensor exceeds its threshold or a PoE budget is exceeded. • LED tiles model (M4250-12M2XF). Either the temperature detected by the temperature sensor exceeds its threshold or the switch processes a full traffic load. • Aggregation model (M4250-16XF). Either the temperature detected by the temperature sensor exceeds its threshold or the switch processes a full traffic load. Note: For detailed information about temperature thresholds, PoE budgets, and traffic load conditions that affect the fans, see the hardware installation guide, which you can download by visiting netgear.com/support/product/m4250.aspx#download. To manually control the fans: 1. Launch a web browser such as Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge. 2. In the address field of your web browser, enter the IP address of the switch followed by :8080. The Login windows displays. 3.

The fans are off and produce no noise. You can only manually set the fans in Off mode. • Quiet. The fans function from 25 to 75 percent speed and can reach 100 percent speed. Quiet mode is the default mode. At 25 percent speed, the fans produce minimal noise. Fan noise increases at 50 percent speed and even more so at 75 percent speed. At 100 percent speed, the fans produce considerable noise. • Cool. The fans consistently function at 100 percent speed and produce considerable noise. In Quiet mode, the switch might automatically change back and forth between Cool mode and Quiet mode until a temperature, PoE budget, or traffic load condition returns within thresholds. The fan setting changes immediately. However, depending on the switch model, if the temperature detected by the temperature sensor exceeds its threshold, a PoE budget is exceeded, or a traffic load condition is exceeded, the switch automatically overrides your manual setting.
