great fast switch

on 6/6/2012

excellent switch. I own two of them and love them. Low cost and high performance. The features are basic for a managed switch but work very well.

Product Overview

Management at an Unmanaged Price
Joining NETGEAR’s family of Smart Switches with simple switch management at no extra cost, these 16- and 24-port Gigabit switches are high on value and capability. With 16 or 24 10/100/1000 Mbps ports, each capable of powering 2000 Mbps of data throughput in fullduplex mode per port, plus two optional fiber ports, it provides fast backbone and connects servers or power users, delivering large amounts of multimedia, image, and video information in no time at all. Ideal for combining 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps devices it delivers 10/100/1000 automatic speed and full/half-duplex sensing plus Auto Uplink™ on every port. Two hotswappable Small Form factor Pluggable (SFP)** GBIC slots provide optional fiber connectivity for greater distance.

In addition, an intuitive, Web-browser interface offers the simple Smart Switch management, making it a snap to monitor switch performance, configure ports, even set up port trunks, VLANs, and traffic prioritization. Alternatively, use SNMP-based software to manage your Smart Switch. Shipped ready for use straight out of the box, it delivers switching that’s easy to set up and use. NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Switches are ideal for adding basic management to your unmanaged networks and extending your managed networks.

16 or 24 10/100/1000 ports deliver non-blocking, full-speed packet forwarding with 48 Gbps bandwidth migrates your network to future-proof functionality. Two Dual Personality SFP GBIC fiber slots provide optional fiber connectivity for greater distance.

Smart Switch capability enables key management features for the value price of an unmanaged switch. Included are performance monitoring, port configuration, VLAN for traffic control, port trunking for increased bandwidth, and Class of Service (CoS) for traffic prioritization.

Ideal for growing businesses who want the benefits of management without the cost and complexity of traditional managed switches.

Easygoing and Durable
Simple to set up and simple to use for effortless network monitoring and troubleshooting. Made to last, this sturdy switch is housed in a 17-inch metal box and comes with a rack mounting kit.
