New Generation of ProSAFE® Gigabit Smart Switches

GS716T Hardware at a Glance:

  • 16 Gigabit copper ports
  • 2 dedicated SFP ports
  • Fanless

The NETGEAR® new generation of ProSAFE Gigabit Smart Switches offers new, powerful L2 and L2+ features with enhanced performance and usability. They are purposely designed for the future where increased traffic and application-oriented tasks demands more intelligence at the edge, higher realiability and improved network efficiency on top of operational cost savings and ease of management.

There are three products in this series: a 16-port, a 24-port, and a 48-port Gigabit Ethernet Smart Switch. The GS716T and GS724T comes with 2 dedicated Gigabit SFP ports for fiber connectivity while GS748T comes with 2 combo SFP and 2 Dedicated SFP ports, all with increased number of simultaneously connected ports. This new generation of Gigabit Smart Switch from NETGEAR is the optimized solution providing the best value at an affordable SMB price point.

Series Highlights:

Designed for Converged Network, Big or Small:

  • Gigabit Speed with non-blocking architecture supporting 100% Gigabit throughput
  • Auto Voice VLAN for fast and reliable deployment of VoIP
  • Auto Video VLAN, following the same concept of Auto Voice, help speed up your deployment of IP-based surveillance system
  • Static routing, helps to route internal traffic for more efficient use of network resources
  • IGMP and MLD snooping, providing advanced multicast filtering

Build a future-proof network with NETGEAR:

  • Solid performance with non-blocking architecture, 16K MAC addresses, 256 VLANs, 100 shared ACL entries, 32static routes, and 512 Multicast Groups
  • Comprehensive IPv6 supporting management, QoS and ACL, ensuring investment protection and a smooth migration to IPv6-based network
  • Dedicated SFPs instead of combo ports, offering more connectivity ports and providing better value and usability at no extra cost
  • Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE802.3az) support for more energy saving in the future when more EEE-compliant end devices come to market
  • Advanced QoS with IPv4/IPv6 ingress traffic filtering and prioritization
  • Dynamic VLAN assignment for easy user authentication and location-independent access to network
  • Multicast VLAN Registration for eliminating unnecessary multicast traffic and improve the efficiency of network utilization

* 1-year 24x7 Advanced Technical Support includes Remote Diagnostics performed by our technical experts for prompt resolution of technical issues.

Features & Benefits:

Features Benefits
Dedicated SFP Fiber uplinks Dedicated SFP ports provides fiber uplinks without sacrificing any downlink Gigabit port. 4 SFP ports provide not only redundant uplinks, but can also build dual redundancy by a trunked uplink with link aggregation and failover, the dual-redundancy, a powerful design for the network virtualization

Fanless Design (GS716T and GS724T)

Quiet operation makes these switches ideal solution for business environments which favor no noise from networking gears such as libraries, class rooms, offices and etc.

Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE802.3az)

Maximum power reduction for onging operational cost savings
Dynamic VLAN Assignment IP phones and PCs can authenticate on the same port but under different VLAN assignment policies. Users are free to move around and enjoy the same level of network access regardless of their physical location in the network
Static Routing A simple way to provide segmentation of the network with internal routing through the switch – reserving the router for external traffic routing only, making the entire network more efficient
Comprehensive IPv6 Support for Management, ACL and QoS Build current network with future in mind. Ensure investment protection and a smooth migration to IPv6-based network without switch replacement
IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping Facilitate fast receiver joins and leaves for multicast streams. Save cost and improve network efficiency by ensuring multicast traffic only reaches designated receivers without the need of an extra multicast router.

Robust Security Features:

  • 802.1x authentication
  • DHCP Snooping
  • Port-based security by locked MAC
  • ACL filtering to permit or deny traffic based on MAC and IP addresses
Build a secured, converged network with all types of traffic by preventing external attacks and blocking malware while allowing secure access for authorized users
Auto Voice and Auto Video Automatic Voice over IP prioritization with Auto-VoIP simplifies most complex multi-vendor IP telephones deployments either based on protocols (SIP, H323 and SCCP) or on OUI bytes (default database and user-based OUIs) in the phone source MAC address; providing the best class of service to VoIP streams (both data and signaling) over other ordinary traffic by classifying traffic, and enabling correct egress queue configuration. When deployed IP phones are LLDP-MED compliant, the Voice VLAN will use LLDP-MED to pass on the VLAN ID, 802.1P priority and DSCP values to the IP phones, accelerating convergent deployments

Comprehensive QoS Features:

  • Port-based or 802.1p-based prioritization
  • Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
  • Port-based ingress and egress rate limiting
Advanced controls for optimized network performance and better delivery of mission-critical traffic such as voice and video
DHCP Snooping Ensure IP address allocation integrity by allowing only clients with specific IP/MAC addresses to have access to the network
Dual Firmware Images and Configuration Files Dual firmware image and dual configuration file for transparent firmware updates/configuration changes with minimum service interruption
Protected Ports Ensure no exchange of unicast, broadcast, or multicast traffic between the protected ports on the switch, therefore, improve the security of your converged network where your sensitive phone conversation can stay private and your surveillance video clips can be forwarded to their designated storage device without leakage or alteration.
Dynamic ARP Inspection Prevents a class of man-in-the-middle attacks, where an unfriendly station intercepts traffic for other stations by poisoning the ARP caches of its unsuspecting neighbors.
Multicast VLAN Registration Eliminates the replication of the same multicast traffic for every VLAN by sending multicast traffic only on to the dedicated multicast/source VLAN, resulting in more efficient utilization of network bandwidth.
EAV (Ethernet Audio/Video Bridging) Support* Extends Ethernet usage to support multimedia streaming. The Ethernet AVB standard adds QoS (Quality of Service) features like time-synchronized low latency streaming services and bandwidth reservation to make it possible to carry professional quanity audio and video signals on a standard Ethernet line.

* EAV support can be acquired through the purchase of EAV software license that is sold separately from the switch. Please refer to ordering information for part numbers of these licenses.
