NETGEAR launches new models in ProSafe Plus Switch family

Users can now prioritise traffic by port, detect cable loops & prevent broadcast storms

By CBR Staff Writer

NETGEAR, a networking company, has launched four new models in its ProSafe Plus Switch family, which provides built-in cable test support, QoS prioritisation for voice and video traffic, and VLAN configuration for network segmentation.

The new models include an eight-port desktop GS108E, 16-port desktop GS116E and rack-mounted 24-port JGS524E, all offer Gigabit Ethernet.

The models also include eight-port desktop GS108PE that provides Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) for supporting devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, security cameras and remote switches without the need for separate electric lines.

ProSafe Plus family has features like traffic monitoring and control through a non-technical graphically based software utility, Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritise traffic by port or by type of data, detection of cable loops to prevent broadcast storms, eliminating the need for network diagnostic tools

The family of switches also features automatic protection against Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks, Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) support for separating traffic, simple set-up, along with plug-and-play connectivity, fan-less design for quiet operation, and "NETGEAR Green" design.

It also offers auto power-down of unused ports and automatic cable-length detection to reduce power for cable runs under 10 metres.
