Netgear GS108GE 8-Port Gigabit Switch - Metal Case



The NETGEAR ProSAFE Gigabit Unmanaged Switch series helps businesses cost-effectively expand their network to Gigabit speeds and higher port counts. The GS108 Gigabit Ethernet switches come with 8 Gigabit copper ports in a desktop metal case and is wall-mountable. These switches are energy efficient, built to last, and rigorously tested to provide the reliability businesses need. 802.1p traffic prioritization and jumbo frame support allow for seamless integration with more sophisticated networks.

Plug and Play

The standards-based ProSAFE Gigabit switches senses and adjusts for network speed and cabling type automatically. Easily integrates into your existing Ethernet network - no matter if it is running at 10/100Mbps or Gigabit speed

Simple set up with no software or configuration needed

Front panel LEDs keep you informed of power status, link speed and link activities

Traffic Prioritization

Prioritize mission-critical applications such as voice and video Support IEEE 802.1 p and DSCP-based QoS for delivering data based on priority and type High Quality and Reliable Performance.

Superior network performance at non-blocking rate delivers true Gigabit speed with no compromise

Durable metal case and long product life (shown by MTBF numbers).

Energy Efficient

The GS108 support the latest Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) standard, which reduces energy consumption when there is light traffic on an active ports or when there is no link or no activity detected. It can further save energy when a short cable (<100m) is used. Energy savings lead directly to cost savings in operation.
