NETGEAR Introduces New PoE+ Switch
NETGEAR Inc. has come out with a new PoE+ switch. It aims to help small and medium businesses with their IP surveillance and VoIP phone deployments.
This new NETGEAR Gigabit PoE+ Smart Managed Pro Switch is called the GS724TPv2. The company says it designed the solution specifically for converged networks in which data, IoT, video, and voice traffic is carried over a single network platform.
It has 24 PoE+ copper ports. It comes with two dedicated SFP ports for fiber uplinks. And it packs in 190W of power. That enables the GS724TPv2 to be used to power and provide connectivity for up to 24 IP security cameras, LED lighting solutions, VoIP endpoints, and/or wireless access points.
It’s list priced at $299.99. And it’s available worldwide through authorized NETGEAR partners and other reseller channels and e-commerce sites.
“We designed the GS724TPv2 to offer a cost-effective solution to support SMB switching needs for wireless converged networks, IP surveillance, IP telephony, and IoT,” said Richard Jonker, vice president of product line management for SMB products at NETGEAR. “Even better, organizations that want to prepare for growth and buy infrastructure for the long- term will find that its 190W PoE power budget provides headroom for future expansion.”
The GS724TPv2 offers an array of advanced smart switching features including access control Lists, broadcast control, denial of service protection, LACP link aggregation, and support for L2/L4/L4 DiffServ QoS policies. Its configurable L2 network features include VLANs, Rapid Spanning Tree, IGMP Snooping and Querier, and IGMP Fast Leave. It’s quiet and energy efficient. And its non-blocking switching architecture employs a 52Gbps line rate fabric for maximum throughput across all 24 ports of gigabit Ethernet.
This solution also comes with a Web browser-based management interface. And the warranty on the GS724TPv2 includes Lifetime Next Business Day shipping for replacement, and Lifetime Technical Support options.
