Netgear ProSafe Plus GS108E 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch
Today's growing businesses are both placing more demands on and
relying more on their network. Companies are putting more applications
and demands on their 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 new 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 behavior. Additionally, if there are
connectivity issues, these switches offer a cable diagnostic test
capability that can identify and even locate problems in the cables. To
optimize traffic through the switches, ProSafe Plus Switches offer both
port and tag-based prioritization to keep latency-sensitive traffic
moving ahead of less critical packets. Also, as a means of improving
security or managing collision domains, ProSafe Smart Switches offer
VLAN technology. ProSafe Plus Switches offering these monitoring and
confi guration capabilities 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 GS108E switch comes in a
sturdy metal case with a fan-less design for silent operation.
