Today’s networks have increasing numbers of devices attached to them, both wired and wireless. As wired devices proliferate, it can be difficult to easily and neatly place networked ports where you want them.

NETGEAR ProSAFE Click Switches address this issue with an innovative and thoughtful hardware design, including the flexible 1-2-3-4 Click mounting system. The new ProSAFE Click Switches are Gigabit Ethernet switches with an industry-first, bracket mounting system for easy installation. Available in either 8- or 16-Gigabit port configurations, their slim design and internal power supplies enables you to organize wires, secure cables, eliminate bulky power adapters, and improve the overall appearance of wiring closets, training facilities, lab benches, conference rooms, and entertainment centers that require multiple connected devices.

Highlights

  • Unique 1-2-3-4 Click mounting system for flexible placement options
  • Cable management with provided retaining strap
  • Multi-directional power cable to optimize placement
  • Internal power supply to eliminate power brick
  • 2 USB ports for quick access to charging tablets or smartphones (GSS108E only)
  • Turn LED lights ON/OFF for non-distracting operation in dark environments such as next to a TV
