The NETGEAR® low-cost, Fast Ethernet switches deliver maximum throughput and flexibility
where you need it — to high-density workgroups at the edge of the network, or in the backbone
of small networks. The ProSafe® FSM726v3 is managed 24-port switches with auto-sensing
10/100 ports and two 10/100/1000 ports. This enables fiber connectivity through two hotswappable
small form-factor pluggable (SFP) Gigabit interfaces. The non-blocking design of the
switches delivers simultaneous, full wire-speed, low-latency throughput to all ports. In addition,
their 1U rack-mount form factor uses less rack space and provides a lower per-port cost than
comparable Fast Ethernet switches.
Multiple NETGEAR fully managed switches can be managed via a single IP address. Robust
security features include IEEE 802.1x port-based authentication and access control lists (ACL),
ensuring that only authorized users can access your network. Secure management of the
switches is available through Secure Sockets Layer (SSLv3) for the Web GUI and Secure
Shell (SSH) for command-line sessions. Additionally, switches can be securely managed via
SNMPv3 with the NETGEAR ProSafe Network Management Software NMS10 0. For workgroup
deployments in cost-sensitive organizations that require Layer 2 switching, and additional Gigabit
capability, NETGEAR’s ProSafe 10/100 Layer 2 Switches deliver the ideal access-edge solution.
