Growing companies rely on their network to provide the foundation for essential business
applications: mission-critical data applications, security, Voice over IP (VoIP), video-conferencing
and much more. Businesses that are growing rapidly want full-featured network switches that
can accommodate growth, support the full range of network applications and secure the network
without the overhead and complexity of fully-managed switches. The ProSafe Gigabit Stackable
Smart Switch family delivers the scalability, flexibility, reliability, and performance growing small
and medium-sized businesses need in an affordable and easy-to-manage package.
A first in the industry, each ProSafe Gigabit Stackable Smart Switch comes with 48
10/100/1000 Mbps ports with four shared SFP ports that provide high performance Fibre
connections for bandwidth-intensive applications like ERP and large file transfers. In addition,
two dedicated ports on the rear of the switch provide a 10 Gbps, dual-ring, highly redundant
stacking bus that accommodates growth and offers the highest level of resiliency, thus allowing
you to stack up to six switches or 288 10/100/1000 Mbps ports – and easily manage them all
with a single IP address. Finally, these switches come with a complete suite of advanced features
for more robust security, higher quality of service and high availability. This switch is equipped
with highly advanced features such as access control lists (ACL), 802.1x port authentication,
enhanced QoS, rate limiting and IGMP snooping among others to provide a small and mediumsized
business with a network that is geared for growth while providing scalability and reliability.
An intuitive, Web-browser interface provides simple yet comprehensive management, making it a
snap to fully realize the potential of the rich feature-set offered by these switches. Why buy fullymanaged
stackable network switches designed and priced for the enterprise? NETGEAR ProSafe
