Netgear FS728TP 24 Port 100EUS ProSafe Rackmountable Smart Switch with 4 Gigabit Ports+24 Port PoE
NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Switches fill the gap between unmanaged and fully managed switches. The family of ProSafe Smart Switches is designed for growing businesses that want control over their network without the cost and complexity of a full Layer 2/Layer 3 management implementation. This PoE-capable Smart Switch, the FS728TP, provides power and data using built-in IEEE 802.3af PoE on all 24 ports. In addition, the FS728TP offers an intuitive Web-based management tool for quick and easy deployment and configuration making it ideal for deploying access points, VoIP phones and IP-based surveillance cameras. This switch is equipped with highly advanced features such as access control lists (ACL), 802.1x port authentication, enhanced QoS, rate limiting and IGMP snooping among others to provide a small and medium-sized business with a network that is geared for growth while providing scalability and reliability. With the utility of 24 10/100 Mbps ports, four copper 10/100/1000 Mbps ports and two combination (copper/hot-swappable small form-factor pluggable (SFP)) Gigabit ports for optional fiber connectivity, growing business networks, classrooms and workgroups can benefit from superior performance and keep up with expanding network needs. This high-performing switch features a non-blocking wire-speed architecture with an 12.8 Gbps switching capacity for maximum data throughput. All 28 RJ-45 ports automatically negotiate to the highest speed and support Auto Uplink™ technology to make the right link.
Full-featured, Flexible Power over Ethernet (PoE)
With a total power budget of 192 Watts, customers can choose to plug in up to 24 Ethernet or Fast Ethernet devices and mix in up to 24 802.3af IP-based devices. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), optimizes the installation and power management of network devices such as wireless access points (AP), Voice over IP (VoIP) phones, and IP-based surveillance cameras. Power-over-Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) capabilities reduce installation time and costs for many new network productivity devices. Free your wireless AP deployments and IP cameras from the restrictions of power outlet proximity using a standard Cat 5 UTP cable. Enable uninterruptible power supply for all your PoE devices by powering your switch from a UPS device.
These switches also provide advanced features that provide more robust security to the SMBs. These include:
802.1x for authentication
ACL filtering to permit or deny traffic based on MAC and IP addresses.
Advanced Quality of Service
Priority queuing ensures high-priority traffic gets delivered efficiently, even during congestion from high traffic bursts. Companies implementing network telephony or video conferencing, for example, need to be able to prioritize such voice and video traffic and other real-time applications over less latency-sensitive traffic to ensure reliability and quality. The ability to prioritize traffic ensures quality of latency-sensitive services and applications despite increasing traffic loads. The ProSafe FS728TP provides several advanced QoS features:
802.1p based prioritization
Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
"Smart" Management Features
Manage all ProSafe Smart Switches as from an easy-to-use Web console that can be used to configure all features, as well as monitor and trouble-shoot. These switches also have SNMP (v1, 2c and 3) to collect and track data to monitor the network health, as well as manage devices, and more easily enforce critical IT controls and policies. SNMP v2c is most commonly deployed, as it provides better reporting capabilities than SNMP v1. Companies interested in more robust security may opt for SNMP v3, which provides data encryption.

It’s good to talk, but the way in which we get in touch with each other is changing. When once a letter, or a phone call over a shared line were the only ways to keep in touch with friends and relatives, there is now e-mail, instant messaging and text messages. The humble telephone isn’t sitting idly by, however. Telephony is evolving and it is using the Internet to keep up with the competition.

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.
