Networking devices provider NETGEAR has launched 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 are targeted at SMBs looking for network efficiency, operational cost savings, and ease of management — especially in the hospitality, catering, education, and retail industries.
“PoE devices are putting a strain on switching power demands,” said Marthesh Nagendra, Country Manager – India & SAARC, 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 Anywhere mounting system for vertical, horizontal, flat or perpendicular placement.
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.
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.
