Control and Configure Beyond Plug-and-Play Connectivity

Today’s growing businesses rely more on their network to carry out mission-critical business activities. Deployment of VoIP and IP surveillance needs the network intelligence to separate the voice and video traffic from data and prioritize them accordingly. However, companies do not necessarily have more money or advanced training to deal with complex managed switches.

NETGEAR ProSAFE Gigabit Web Managed (Plus) Switches meet this growing need by providing fundamental network features such as VLANs, QoS, and IGMP Snooping that will help optimize the performance of business networks. ProSAFE Web Managed (Plus) switches come in a variety of configurations ranging from 5 port desktop to 24 port rackmount. Some models support Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and can power devices such as IP phones, IP surveillance cameras, and wireless access points with just an Ethernet cable; perfect for low-cost PoE deployments. ProSAFE Web Managed (Plus) Switches are the perfect upgrade from the plug-and-play unmanaged switch, delivering essential networking features at a very affordable price.
