For high-density converged, wireless and secure networks
NETGEAR has introduced four new Gigabit switches with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+) and SFP ports for fiber uplinks. These switches expand the second-generation family of Smart Managed Pro Switches purposely designed for converged networks where voice, video, data, and IoT are all carried on a single network platform, with maximum security.
Within small and medium-sized organizations — such as: hospitality, catering, education, and retail industries — there is growing deployment of VoIP phones, IP security cameras, video-over-IP endpoints, proximity sensors, LED lighting, secure access door locks, and other IoT devices. The dense proximity of these devices requires network switches capable of supporting PoE so a network manager can add power-hungry devices to the network with a single wire for power AND connectivity. Increasing the power demands on PoE switches are 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless access points as well as pan-tilt-zoom HD surveillance cameras with features such as night vision and built-in motion tracking, which require PoE+ power (802.3at).
Now, even organizations on a tight budget can deploy PoE+ devices more densely, connected to a cost-effective switch, with a reasonable PoE+ power budget of 190W over 24 ports (GS728TPv2), or 380W over 48 ports (GS752TPv2). Or, if you’re buying infrastructure for the long term and want to plan for growth or the unexpected, the PoE+ port counts and robust PoE power budgets of these switches offer more headroom for future expansion, up to 380W for the 24-port GS728TPPv2 and 760W for the 48-port GS752TPP. Even at full PoE power with traffic on all ports, they operate quietly, thanks to temperature- and load-based fan-speed control.
“Our long history of working with small and medium businesses to develop customized solutions tell us that they are looking for the best combination of features, performance and value,” said Richard Jonker, Vice President, product line management for SMB products at NETGEAR. “This is why NETGEAR launched four new Gigabit Smart Managed Pro Switches with PoE+ across ALL ports to support SMB switching needs for wireless converged networks, IP surveillance, IP telephony and IoT. When you add in our industry-leading warranty policy and lifetime support options, these switches present an attractive, enterprise-class package at an SMB budget.”
Sharing the same advanced performance and usability features and great PoE functionality, the GS728TPv2, GS728TPPv2, GS752TPv2 and GS752TPP Switches are designed to support wireless converged networks and mobility needs now, and as your business grows.
All NETGEAR Smart Managed Pro Switches include ProSAFE Lifetime Hardware Warranty including Lifetime Next Business Day shipping for part replacement and Lifetime Chat Support. Consult the NETGEAR website warranty page and your local NETGEAR representative for applicable support services.
As per the release, the four new NETGEAR Smart Managed Pro Switches are available now worldwide through authorized NETGEAR partners and other reseller channels and ecommerce sites. Regional variance may apply to the final pricing for end customers depending on the reseller and bundled offerings.
