BENGALURU: NASDAQ-listed networking devices producer, Netgear has introduced three new ProSAFE Smart Managed Switches to support dense deployment of modern, high-power devices requiring Power-Over-Ethernet and PoE+.
The new standalone switches are designed with varying PoE port counts and PoE power budgets to meet the current and future needs of wireless converged networks. These new switches represent an ideal solution for SMBs looking for network efficiency, operational cost savings, and ease of management — especially in the hospitality, catering, education, and retail industries.
Purposely designed for converged networks where voice, video, data are carried on a single network platform, the three new Netgear Smart Managed Switches offer PoE+ functionality along with powerful Layer 2+ and Layer 3 Lite features:
ProSAFE Easy-Mount 16-Port 240W PoE+ Gigabit Smart Managed Switch with 2 SFP ports and Virtually Anywhere Mounting System (GS418TPP) – $399.99
ProSAFE 8-Port 190W PoE+ Gigabit Smart Managed Switch with 2 SFP ports(GS510TPP) – $299.99
ProSAFE 8-Port 75W PoE+ Gigabit Smart Managed Switch with 2 SFP ports(GS510TLP) – $199.99
Within small and medium-sized organizations, there is growing adoption of PoE devices such as VoIP phones, IP security cameras, wireless access points, proximity sensors, LED lighting, door locks, and other IoT devices that require network switches capable of supporting dense PoE installations. Wireless access points and pan-tilt-zoom HD cameras using Wave 2 802.11ac WiFi also require PoE+ power (802.3at), increasing the power demands on PoE switches.
All three of the new switches offer the same fundamental management features of other Netgear ProSAFE Smart Managed Switches, with simpler configuration and deployment through an easy-to-use, intuitive web browser-based management GUI.
The new 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.
