Gigabit Power, 10/100 Simplicity
Businesses are relying on and placing more demands on their network and Ethernet Infrastructure. Using VoIP phones and IP cameras require more than simple plug-and-play connectivity. Additionally, Internet-based applications such as Hotmail and Google Calendaring have made keeping the network up a business-critical need. However, companies do not necessarily have more money or advanced training to deal with complex managed switches.
NetGear's ProSafe Plus Switches meet this growing need by providing easy-to-use visibility and limited configuration capabilities. To provide more insight into the network behavior, ProSafe Plus Switches offer traffic monitoring for users to observe traffic behaviour. Also, if there are connectivity issues, these switches offer a cable diagnostic test capability that can identify and even locate problems in the cables. To optimise traffic through the switches, ProSafe Plus Switches offer both port and tag-based prioritisation to keep latency-sensitive traffic moving ahead of less critical packets.
As a means of improving security or managing collision domains, ProSafe Smart Switches offer VLAN technology at a slight cost premium over unmanaged switches, delivering great value to the end user.
Furthering NetGear's support of the environment, ProSafe Plus Switches have power-saving Green Ethernet technology. The GS105E switch comes in a sturdy metal case with a fan-less design for silent operation.
