Product Features:

  • Designed and Built for the network convergence
  • Optimized for integration and deployment of VoIP, IP Surveilance and WLAN
  • Support PoE+ with up to 30w of power budget per port
  • Advanced L2 features and comprehensive IPv6 support

The NETGEAR new generation of Gigabit PoE/PoE+ Smart Switches offers powerful L2 and L2+ features, better PoE functions, and enhanced performance and usability. They are purposely designed for the converged networks where voice, video, data are all carried on a single network platform for network efficiency, operational cost savings, and ease of management.

There are four products in this series, 16/28/52-port Gigabit with PoE and a 28- port Gigabit with PoE Plus. GS516TP is the Smart Switch with PoE/PD features. It can work as PD device that can get power from other PSE device through port 15 or/and port 16. Meanwhile, it can also deliver power to other PDs that are connected to its PoE ports (port 1 to 8). GS728TP and GS752TP are Gigabit PoE/ PoE+ Smart Switches that come with PoE capabilities on all ports and supports PoE+ with up to 30W of power budget on the first 8 ports, providing hardware investment protections so that the switch can support many more PoE powered devices and new higher-powered devices down the road. With the new Generation, also comes the addition of high-powered PoE+ Smart Switch into the portfolio. The GS728TPP comes with 24 PoE+ ports and a total PoE power budget of 384w. It can be used in any deployment with high-density of power-hungry devices, such as multiple 11ac Wireless Access Point, PTZ cameras and Video IP phones. All switches come with 4 dedicated Gigabit SFP ports for fiber connectivity.

The new generation of Gigabit PoE/PoE+ Smart Switch from NETGEAR is the optimized solution providing the best value at an affordable SMB price point.

Features and Benefits:

Hardware Features Benefits
PoE-capable on all 24 and 48 Gigabit ports Support high-density VoIP, Surveilliance and WiFi AP deployments, scalable for future growth. Never face the risk of running out of PoE ports.
8 IEEE 802.3at PoE Plus ports Flexibile to add enough high-end and/or high-powered PoE devices such as video phones, PTZ cameras and 11ac Wireless Access Points in the future via the same existing switch that is used to power normal VoIP phones.
4 Dedicated SFP Fiber uplinks Dedicated SFP ports provides fi ber uplinks without sacrifacing any downlink Gigabit port. 4 SFP ports provide not only redundent uplinks, but can also build dual redundancy by a trunked uplink with link agregation and failover, the dual-redundancy, a powerful design for the network virtualization.
24 PoE+ ports on GS728TPP with optional External power supply to reach PoE buget of 720W Powerful PoE+ Switch for high-end power-hungry PoE deployment. Better value at a fractional price of the Full Managed PoE+ switches.
2 PD ports along with PoE capability on 16 Gigabit port model 2 PD ports for flexible network deployment and expansion without the constraints of AC power outlet. Additional PoE capability while being a PD device enable this switch to further power end devices such as IP phones, IP cameras and wireless access points.
Software Features Benefits
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 Filtering
  • 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 simplifi es most complex multi-vendor IP telephones deployments either based on protocols (SIP, H323 and SCCP) or on OUI bytes (default database and userbased OUIs) in the phone source MAC address; providing the best class of service to VoIP streams (both data and signaling) over other ordinary traffi c by classifying traffi c, 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 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.
PoE Timer Allows IT administrators to increase network security, better utilize network resources and conserve energy by scheduling or remotely controlling on/off of POE ports.
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.
