NETGEAR ProSafe GS108 8-port Gigabit Desktop Switch 10/100/1000 Mbps...

The NETGEAR ProSAFE GS108 unmanaged switch lets you expand your network to gigabit speeds and/or higher port counts. These devices are suitable for corporate and other enterprise-level environments, but they are also versatile and convenient for home use. Small enough to fit on your desktop, this unit has been rigorously tested by the manufacturer, is built to last, and is energy efficient. Whether you are building a web server or setting up a LAN gaming hub, the GS108 will deliver quality performance. NETGEAR has designed the GS108 switch in a hard metal case. The case is designed to protect the internal hardware even if the unit is dropped to the floor. The case is stylish and well-suited for standalone positioning on a desktop alongside routers, modems, and other accessories. The case also supports wall mounting and is rack-mountable and has the type of compact form factor that is ideal for racks. Each of the eight Gigabit Ethernet ports is constructed of copper. This helps ensure efficiency and low resistance for a signal being transmitted over an Ethernet cable. ProSAFE switches are smart connections in that they automatically sense and adjust for traffic speeds, cabling type, and other environmental factors. This NETGEAR switch also supports the plug-and-play model. Just connect and go. No special software is required when working with PnP operating systems, physical systems, and accessories. That makes integration a breeze whether your network is operating at 100 Mbps or gigabit speed. Most environments won’t even require manual configuration. A series of LED lights on the front panel will let you check power status, link speed, link activities, and more at a glance. NETGEAR has configured the ProSAFE GS108 according to Energy Efficient Ethernet standards. The IEEE 802.3az standard helps ensure that power consumption is kept to a minimum. The GS108 can even throttle down when no links or activities are detected. It also features additional energy-saving mechanisms that kick in when short cables are in use. Short in the networking sense is any cable less than 100 meters, or about 328 feet. You want high-quality performance on a reliable basis, and that is what this NETGEAR switch gives you even when handling jumbo frames. Performance is delivered at a non-blocking rate without compromise. You also have the option to prioritize traffic for your most important information. You can prioritize critical operations such as video and voice traffic. This switch also has security mechanisms and supports DSCP-based QoS and IEEE 802.1 p. That means that you can deliver data at the hardware level based on priority and class. The NETGEAR ProSAFE eight-port Ethernet switch includes a 12V/0.5A external power adapter. Simply connect the adapter to the unit and then a wall outlet to get your switch up and running. Connect it to a router or access point and begin enjoying expanded wired connectivity for your local network. Not only can you connect all kinds of LAN-capable devices, you can daisy chain multiple switches in order to keep expanding your networking possibilities.
