Multi-site, Multi-network Single Pane-of-Glass View View and configure multiple networks across multiple sites, all from one single app; NETGEAR Insight.
Comprehensive IPv6 Support for Management, ACLs and QoS Build current network with future in mind. Ensure investment protection and a smooth migration to an IPv6-based network without switch replacement.
IPv4 & IPv6 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.
Robust Security Features (802.1x, ACLs, MAC Authentication) 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 (802.1p, DSCP, Rate-limiting) Advanced controls for optimized network performance and better delivery of mission-critical traffic such as voice and video.
Auto-VoIP, Auto-Voice VLAN, and Auto-Video VLAN Automatic Voice over IP prioritization (Auto-VoIP) simplifies most complex multi-vendor IP telephone deployments either based on protocols (SIP, H.323 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. Similarly, Auto-Video VLAN enables IGMP snooping to minimize broadcast streams.
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.
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 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.
Private VLAN Private VLANs help reduce broadcast with added security.
Port Trunking/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.
Loop Prevention and Auto-DoS Prevention Detect and prevent (auto port shutdown) accidental network loops and protect against DoS attacks.
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.
