Control and Configure Beyond Plug-and-Play Connectivity

Today's growing businesses rely more on their network to carry out missioncritical business activities. Deployment of VoIP and IP surveillance needs the network intelligence to separate the voice and video traffic from data, and prioritize them accordingly. However, companies do not necessarily have more money or advanced training to deal with complex managed switches.

NETGEAR ProSAFE Gigabit Plus Switches meet this growing need by providing fundamental network features such as VLANs, QoS, and IGMP Snooping that will help optimize the performance of business networks. ProSAFE Plus switches come in a variety of configurations ranging from 5 port desktop to 24 port rackmount. Certain Plus switch models support Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and can power devices such as IP phones, IP surveillance cameras and wireless access points with just an Ethernet cable; perfect for low cost PoE deployments. ProSAFE Plus Switches are the perfect upgrade from the plug-and-play unmanaged switch, delivering essential networking features at a very affordable price.


  • Enable network configuration and management at the price point of Unmanaged Switches
  • Gigabit connection deliver up to 2000 Mbps of dedicated, non-blocking bandwidth per port
  • Simple, yet useful network set-up on top of plug-and-play connectivity
  • VLAN support for traffic segmentation
  • Quality of Service (QoS) for traffic prioritization
  • Auto "denial-of-service" (DoS) prevention
  • Troubleshoot connection issues via cable test
  • Loop prevention and broadcast storm controls
  • IGMP snooping v1, v2 and v3 support for multicast optimization
  • Rate limiting for better bandwidth allocation
  • Port mirroring for network monitoring
  • Port trunking for bigger uplink bandwidth
  • Jumbo frame support
  • Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE802.3az) support for maxium power savings
  • LIFETIME Hardware Warranty
  • LIFETIME 24/7 Technical Support
  • LIFETIME Next Business Day Replacement

Features and Benefits:

Hardware Features: Benefits:
All Gigabit models Making Plus Switch an ideal upgrade for SMB network combining management capability with higher speed and better performance
PoE offerings in Plus Switches With half of the ports capable of supporting PoE, these PoE Plus models are the most cost efficient Gigabit Ethernet solution for converaged network where PoE support is needed, but isn't necessary on all ports
Desktop and rackmount Flexibile deployment for either desktop placement, undertable mount, wall mount as well as rackmount
Software Features: Benefits:
VLAN Segment network into smaller groups for more secure and efficient use of network resources
QoS For optimized network performance and better delivery of mission-critical traffic such as voice and video
IGMP Snooping For improved network efficiency on delivering multicast traffic
Port Trunking Build up a bigger bandwidth to support aggregated uplink traffic
Port Mirroring For better and quicker network diagnotics and troubleshooting
Cable Test Easily identify bad Ethernet cables
