NETGEAR announces ProSafe GS110TP Smart Switch with 8 Gigabit port

Best Selling ProSafe Smart Switch Family Adds an Option under $400 that
Easily and Cost-Effectively Manages Increasing Voice, Video, and Data

NETGEAR, Inc., a worldwide provider of technologically innovative networking
solutions for businesses, homes and service providers, today announced
the addition of a NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Switch to deliver higher
network performance for businesses, without the cost and complexity of
traditional enterprise vendor switches. The
NETGEAR ProSafe 8-port Gigabit PoE Smart Switch (GS110TP) enables
businesses to quickly, easily and cost-effectively handle the explosive
growth of voice, video, and data traffic experienced across business
networks. Priced under $400, the NETGEAR ProSafe GS110TP is designed for
companies that want to enhance their network with a low port density
solution with the combination of Gigabit speed and Power over Ethernet
(PoE) capability.

“We’ve been working with the ProSafe GS110TP
for the past couple months and the configuration and network management
have been extremely intuitive and straightforward,” said Andrew Roper of
Virginia-based technology integrator, BCS Voice and Data Solutions.
“The ProSafe GS110TP is able to monitor VOIP, IP surveillance, and our
normal and growing data usage patterns. It is also remarkably versatile
and just so much more cost-efficient than using managed switch
solutions. Plus, thanks to the compact size and low noise level, we
hardly notice it’s in our office.”

The new NETGEAR ProSafe Smart
Switch is for businesses that want to easily deploy VOIP, IP
surveillance, or video conferencing and efficiently manage all IP
devices such as wireless access points, IP phones and IP cameras on the
network. It prioritizes voice and video traffic and other real-time
applications over less latency-sensitive traffic, ensuring superior
reliability and quality. And it enables businesses to extend the
intelligence of their network to connect high speed servers or power
users from any location.

“We have customers from businesses of
all sizes who need powerful smart switches that reliably move growing
volumes of voice, video and data traffic at optimal levels,” said Maggie
Wu, product line manager, Business Switching for NETGEAR. “Our latest
addition to the ProSafe line reflects NETGEAR’s commitment to these
businesses; we build intelligent products that don’t pass cost and
complexity onto users. ProSafe Smart Switches are affordable and easy to
set up right out of the box.”

Energy efficient and a “Whisper-Quiet” design

The ProSafe GS110TP smart switch includes eight dedicated
PoE-capable copper ports plus two additional fiber SFP ports for uplinks
designed to prioritize, queue and maximize busy traffic on a business
network. In addition, the smart switch offers useful PoE power
management features to help control and monitor power resources. It has a
timer that can help turn off the PoE ports during certain times of the
day so that business networks can be more secure. In addition, it
increases the energy efficiency of the networks as the switch can
prioritize the power usage so that specified ports are always guaranteed
to get the power first if total power required exceeds the total power
budget. And it assigns PoE ports dynamically depending on the actual
power need of the individual network devices so no calculation is
necessary. Meanwhile, with a fanless design and compact form factor, the
ProSafe GS110TP offers quiet operation and is suitable for deployments
in any type of environment, especially ones which are sensitive to

“Web-managed switches have been highly successful over the
past two years, as they balance the need for advanced features with the
necessity of keeping expenditures in check,” said Matthias Machowinski,
Directing Analyst, Enterprise Voice and Data for Infonetics Research,
Inc. “NETGEAR’s latest introduction rounds out their smart switch
portfolio by extending the smart switch value proposition down to a PoE
