Netgear PSAFE POE CAPABLE 24 PORT 10/100 SMART SWITCH W/ 4 GB PORTS
ProSafe 24 Port 10/100 Smart Switch
Full 24-port PoE Solution Plus Easy Browser-based Management
Full-featured, Flexible Power over Ethernet (PoE)
With a total power budget of 192 Watts, customers can choose to plug in up to 24 Ethernet or Fast Ethernet devices and mix in up to 24 802.3af IP-based devices. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), optimizes the installation and power management of network devices such as wireless access points (AP), Voice over IP (VoIP) phones, and IP-based surveillance cameras. Power-over-Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) capabilities reduce installation time and costs for many new network productivity devices. Free your wireless AP deployments and IP cameras from the restrictions of power outlet proximity using a standard Cat 5 UTP cable. Enable uninterruptible power supply for all your PoE devices by powering your switch from a UPS device.
These switches also 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 and IP addresses.
Advanced Quality of Service
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 FS728TP provides several advanced QoS features:
Manage all ProSafe Smart Switches as from an easy-to-use Web console that can be used to configure all features, as well as monitor and trouble-shoot. These switches also have SNMP (v1, 2c and 3) to collect and track data to monitor the network health, as well as manage devices, and more easily enforce critical IT controls and policies. SNMP v2c is most commonly deployed, as it provides better reporting capabilities than SNMP v1. Companies interested in more robust security may opt for SNMP v3, which provides data encryption.
