NETGEAR Expands Family of Standalone Smart Managed Switches for High-Density Power-Over-Ethernet Devices

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTGR), the leading provider of networking devices that power today's smart home and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), is introducing 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:

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.

"PoE devices are putting a strain on switching power demands," said Richard Jonker, vice president of product line management for SMB products at NETGEAR. "We designed our three new Smart Switches with PoE+ as we understand the importance of providing a wide choice of port counts and power budgets that can adapt to business needs, along with quiet operation and flexible placement options."

The GS418TPP Easy-Mount 16-Port Gigabit Smart Managed Switch comes with 16 PoE+ copper ports and 2 dedicated Gigabit SFP fiber ports for aggregation to the network core. Organizations that buy infrastructure for the long term and wish to be prepared for the growth can support dense deployment of PoE+ as the 240W PoE power budget of this switch provides a lot of room for expansion.

With the GS418TPP, network managers can install PoE+ ports in any environment needed where other switches cannot go, due to its slim design and the industry-first NETGEAR Virtually AnywhereTM mounting system for vertical, horizontal, flat or perpendicular placement. Whether it's on the wall, strapped to a pole, under a desk or tabletop, in air passageways, or above drop-down ceilings, this unique mounting system enables a network manager to optimize placement of power-hungry access points, IP cameras, or VoIP endpoints, and ensure cabling efficiency even outside the rack. The GS418TPP operates quietly even at full power thanks to intelligent fan-speed control.

The GS510TPP 8-Port Gigabit Smart Managed Switch has 8 PoE+ copper ports and 2 dedicated SFP ports for fiber uplinks. Its 190W power budget provides more than enough headroom to make the GS510TPP a wise purchase for network managers to support denser deployment of PoE+ devices as their business grows. Its temperature- and load-based fan-speed control combines accurate monitoring with minimized system acoustic noise, supporting quiet operation in both desktop or rackmount configuration.

The GS510TLP 8-Port Gigabit Smart Managed Switch offers 8 PoE+ copper ports and 2 dedicated SFP ports for fiber uplinks. Cost-cautious organizations can now deploy denser PoE+ devices with a reasonable PoE power budget of 75W. With a fan-less design, the GS510TLP supports perfectly silent desktop operation or rack mounting in conference rooms, open space offices, healthcare centers or any noise-sensitive environment.

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. Some of the key features and benefits supported by all three switches include:

  • Layer 3 static routing with 32 routes (IPv4 and IPv6) for interVLAN local routing
  • Advanced VLAN support for better network segmentation
  • Advanced per port PoE controls for remote power management of PoE connected devices including operation scheduling
  • Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) for maximum power savings
  • Configurable L2 network features include VLANs, Rapid Spanning Tree, IGMP Snooping and Querier, IGMP Fast Leave
  • Advanced Smart Switching features include IPv4/IPv6 Layer 3 static routing, DiffServ QoS policies, LACP Link Aggregation, Broadcast control, Denial of service protection
  • Lifetime Hardware Warranty includes Lifetime Next Business Day shipping for replacement, and Lifetime Technical Support options.

Availability
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.
