As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR understands the importance of providing great choice of PoE port counts and power budgets that can adapt to the business’s needs to keep up with the growth of virtualization, cloud-based services and applications like VoIP, video streaming and IP surveillance, whether in the hospitality, catering, education or retail domains.

The GS716TP and GS716TPP 16-Port Gigabit Switch with PoE+ and 2 SFP Ports join the NETGEAR Standalone Smart Managed Pro Switches family, adding full 16 port PoE+ support for deployment of modern high-power PoE devices. Cautious spender organizations can now deploy denser PoE+ devices connected to a cost effective switch, with a reasonable PoE power budget of 180W (GS716TP) or 300W (GS716TPP).

NETGEAR Smart Managed Pro Switches offer powerful Layer 2 features, great PoE functionality, and enhanced performance and usability. These switches are the ideal solution even for the most advanced small and medium organizations looking for the best combination of features, performance, and value: they are purposely designed for converged networks where voice, video, data are all carried on a single network platform. Temperature- and load-based fanspeed control combines accurate monitoring with minimized system acoustic noise: the GS716TP and GS716TPP support quiet rack mounting operation with a maximum of 27.3dB (GS716TP) and 28.2 dB (GS716TPP) even at full power and 25°C (77°F) ambient.

To empower the PoE applications, NETGEAR Insight Remote/Cloud Management is added to these two new switch models as an optional management mode. By activating the NETGEAR Insight Cloud management, the users will enable management features allowing businesses simpler configuration and deployment from anywhere using the NETGEAR Insight app from mobile devices or the Insight Cloud Portal from any device with a web browser.

Features & Benefits:

Features Benefits
Hardware Features
Fully-integrated Cloud-manageable Devices Require no additional hardware (cloud keys, network portals, local servers, VPN or proxy appliances etc) to directly connect to the cloud and allow remote management. No additional hardware or software. Just switch to Insight Cloud Management mode through Web browser-based User Interface and go.

1000BASE-T Copper Ethernet and PoE+ connections

1000BASE-X SFP ports

Two dedicated Gigabit SFP ports for aggregation to the network core. Support for Fiber and Copper modules.
Low Acoustics Temperature- and load-based fan-speed control allow for quiet operation in both desktop or rack mount configuration.
Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) Maximum power reduction for ongoing operation cost savings.
Desktop and rack-mount (kit available) Flexible deployment on desktop and also support rackmount.
Software Features
Remote setup, management, and monitoring anywhere, anytime, from your mobile device, PC, Mac, or tablet Locally or remotely setup, configure, manage, monitor or even troubleshoot your network from anywhere, anytime. Check network status, view dashboards for network health and activity, power cycle PoE ports, etc, and update firmware remotely. No need to be on-site, open up ports to your network, or VPN into it.
Auto-join and Configure (Zero-Touch Provisioning) Additional Insight Managed devices added to the network automatically inherit settings and configuration.
Multi-site, Multi-network Single Pane-of-Glass View View and configure multiple networks across multiple sites, all from one single app; NETGEAR Insight.

Robust Security Features:

  • 802.1x authentication (EAP)
  • Port-based security by locked MAC
Build a secured, converged network with all types of traffic by preventing external attacks and blocking malware while allowing secure access for authorized users.

Comprehensive QoS Features:

  • Port-based or 802.1p-based prioritization
  • Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
  • Port-based ingress and egress rate limiting

Auto-VoIP, Auto-Voice VLAN Automatic Voice over IP prioritization (Auto-VoIP) simplifies most complex multi-vendor IP telephone deployments either based 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.
IGMP 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.
Protected Ports Ensure no exchange of unicast, broadcast, or multicast traffic between the protected ports on the switch, thereby improving the security of your converged network. This allows your sensitive phone conversations to stay private and your surveillance video clips can be forwarded to their designated storage device without leakage or alteration.
DHCP Snooping Ensure IP address allocation integrity by only allowing DHCP messages from trusted DHCP servers and dropping malformed DHCP messages with a port or MAC address mismatch.
Dynamic VLAN Assignment (RADIUS) 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 on the network.
Link Aggregation (LACP) Build up bigger bandwidth to support aggregated uplink/downlink traffic or to provide redundant link(s). Aggregate up to 8 ports for 8Gbps connections.
PoE Timer and Scheduling Allows IT administrators to increase network security, better utilize network resources and conserve energy by scheduling or remotely controlling on/ off of PoE ports
Port Mirroring and Cable Test Many-to-one port mirroring for better and quicker network diagnostics and troubleshooting. Cable test easily identifies bad Ethernet cables.
Dual Firmware Images Dual firmware images for transparent firmware updates with minimum service interruption.
Firmware Updates from Cloud Direct cloud-to-device firmware updates, initiated and/or scheduled using the Insight app, all from the palm of your hand, anytime, anywhere!

* 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.

Power The Devices in Your Business

The new standalone GS716TP and GS716TPP switch are designed with 16 ports PoE+ and 2 SFP ports. With 180W power on GS716TP and 300W power on GS716TPP, the two switches can meet the current and future needs of wireless converged networks. Within small and medium-sized organizations, there is growing adoption of PoE devices such as VoIP phones, IP security cameras, wireless access points, proximity sensors, LED lighting, door locks, and other IoT devices that require network switches capable of supporting dense PoE installations. Wireless access points and pan-tilt-zoom HD cameras using Wave 2 802.11ac Wi-Fi also require PoE+ power (802.3at), increasing the power demands on PoE switches.

“PoE devices are putting a strain on switching power demands.” As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR understands the importance of providing great choice of PoE port counts and power budgets that can adapt to the business’s needs, whether in the hospitality, education or retail domains.

These switches provide a great value, with configurable Layer 2 network features like VLANs and PoE operation scheduling. Advanced features such as DiffServ QoS, LACP link aggregation and Spanning Tree will satisfy even the most advanced small business networks. With Insight Cloud management capability, managing those PoE and Smart switching features is just one click away.
