Product Features:

  • 16 high-speed, auto-sensing 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet connections
  • Integrates 10, 100, & 1000 Mbps devices within a network
  • Silently delivers up to 2000 Mbps on each port

The NETGEAR Gigabit Unmanaged Switch series helps businesses costeffectively expand their network to Gigabit speeds and higher port counts. The GS105, GS108, and GS108PP Gigabit Ethernet switches come with 5 and 8 Gigabit copper ports in a desktop metal case and are wall-mountable. These switches are energy efficient, built to last, and rigorously tested to provide the reliability businesses need. 802.1p traffic prioritization and jumbo frame support allow for seamless integration with more sophisticated networks.

Plug and Play

  • The standards-based ProSAFE Gigabit switches senses and adjusts for network speed and cabling type automatically. Easily integrates into your existing Ethernet network - no matter if it is running at 10/100Mbps or Gigabit speed
  • Simple set up with no software or configuration needed
  • Front panel LEDs keep you informed of power status, link speed and link activities

Traffic Prioritization

Prioritize mission-critical applications such as voice and video Support IEEE 802.1 p and DSCP-based QoS for delivering data based on priority and type

High Quality and Reliable Performance

  • Superior network performance at non-blocking rate delivers true Gigabit speed with no compromise
  • Durable metal case and long product life (shown by MTBF numbers)

Energy Efficient

  • GS105v5, GS108v4, and GS116v2 support the latest Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) standard, which reduces energy consumption when there is light traffic on an active port or when there is no link or no activity detected. It can further save energy when a short cable (<100m) is used. Energy savings lead directly to cost savings in operation.
  • Silent, fanless design for energy efficiency and noise-sensitive environments

Supports all Types of Networks

  • Each port delivers up to 2000Mbps of network speed (full duplex)
  • Supports jumbo frames up to 9K packets size on GS105v5 and GS116v2, up to 9,270 bytes on GS108v4
  • Honors TOS/802.1p prioritization

Limited Lifetime Warranty

Industry’s leading limited lifetime warranty, not only on hardware but also includes lifetime online support as well as next-business day (NBD) replacement support, providing customers peaceof-mind using NETGEAR switches in their network.
