Product information: ProSafe GS724T Gigabit Smart SwitchJoining NETGEAR's family of Smart Switches with simple switch management at no extra cost, this 24-port Gigabit switch is high on value and capability. With 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.
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.
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.
These Gigabit Smart Switches provide advanced features that provide more robust security to the SMBs. These include:
• 802.1x for authentication
• ACL filtering to permit or deny traffic based on MAC or IP addresses.
Advanced Quality of Service (QoS)
Priority queuing ensures high-priority traffic gets delivered efficiently, even during congestion from high-traffic bursts. Companies implementing network telephony or video conferencing, for example, need to be able to prioritize such voice and video traffic and other real-time applications over less latency-sensitive traffic to ensure reliability and quality. The ability to prioritize traffic ensures quality of latency-sensitive services and applications despite increasing traffic loads. The ProSafe Gigabit Smart Switch provides an extensive set of QoS features:
• 802.1p-based prioritization
• Layer 3-based prioritization
