NETGEAR delivers wirespeed Gigabit performance and a full set of Layer 2 management features,as well as static routing with unsurpassed affordability. This next-generation, high-speed switchdelivers maximum throughput where you need it — to high-performance workgroups at theedge of the network, or as a backbone for Fast Ethernet switches and high-speed servers indemanding small networks. The non-blocking design offers full Gigabit throughput simultaneouslyto all 24 10/100/1000 ports to ensure reliable performance. Flexible fiber connectivity isenabled through four combination small form-factor pluggable (SFP) gigabit interfaces. Layer2 management functionality delivers reliability, control, and availability. Static routing enablesinter-VLAN routing and provides a faster network and more effective bandwidth management.Access control lists (L2-L4) provide robust security, while L2-L4 based QoS provides enhancedtraffic management capabilities. The cost-effective NETGEAR ProSafe 24- and 48-port GigabitL2 Managed Switch creates a more productive — and future-proof — network. With increasingbandwidth requirements from applications such as voice, video, database management, andother services that slow throughput and response time, you can unleash your network and enablemaximum productivity with Gigabit Ethernet for today’s high-performance environments.Multiple NETGEAR fully managed switches can be managed via a single IP address. Optimizebandwidth, security, and control with full Layer 2 management capabilities. Network administratorscan use any combination of these features to ensure uptime, availability, bandwidth and throughput.
