Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az). Control and Configure Beyond Plug-N-Play Connectivity. Today's growing businesses demand and rely more on their network to carry out mission-critical business activities.Companies are putting more network traffic and applications such as VoIP phones and IP cameras on their Ethernet infrastructure. It needs the network intelligence to separate the voice and video traffic from data, and prioritise them accordingly. NETGEAR Smart Managed Plus Switches meet this growing need by providing fundamental network features that will help optimise the performance of business networks. On top of the plug-N-play Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, these switches also offer essential networking features such as VLAN, QoS, IGMP Snooping, Link Aggregation / Port Trunking on models with 16 ports or more, rate limiting and traffic monitoring. NETGEAR Smart Managed Plus Switches are an exceptional value for businesses looking to add intelligence to their network beyond what unmanaged switches can provide.
With the ability to set up and configure QoS, the GS108PE can detect different types of network traffic and assign the desired priority to latency-sensitive traffic, such as voice and video. The GS108PE can help to divide big networks into smaller more manageable groups and has resources dedicated for one or several groups rather than making the same resources open to all.
This feature improves overall network performance, adds security to network traffic, and makes more efficient use of network resources. THe GS108PE comes with a cable diagnostic feature that enables users to easily find out the health status of their network cables. If there are any problems, this feature helps to quickly locate the points where the cabling fails; allowing connectivity issues to be fixed much faster, potentially saving tehcnicians hours of troubleshooting. By listening in on the IGMP conversations between hosts and routers, the GS108PE switch maintains a map as to which links need IP multicast streams, therefore being able to forward multicast traffic only to the links that have asked for them and cut multicast traffic from links that do not contain a multicast listener. Essentially, IGMP snooping helps optimise multicast performance at Layer 2 and is especially useful for bandwidth-intensive IP multicast applications such as IPTV.
