Today's growing businesses demand and rely more on their network to carry out mission-critical business activities. Companies are putting more network traffic and applications such as VoIP phones and IP cameras on their Ethernet infrastructure.
Network intelligence needs to separate the voice and video traffic from data and prioritize them accordingly. However, companies do not necessarily have more money or advanced training to deal with complex managed switches.
Netgear GS105E Plus Switches meet this growing need by providing fundamental network features that will help optimize the performance of business networks. On top of the plug-N-play Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, these switches also offer essential networking features such as VLAN, QoS, IGMP Snooping, Link Aggregation (LAG), rate limiting, and traffic monitoring.
NETGEAR ProSAFE® Plus Switches are an exceptional value for businesses looking to add intelligence to their network beyond what unmanaged switches can provide.
Set the Netgear GS105E Audio / Video Priority
With the ability to set up and configure QoS, these Gigabit Plus Switches can detect different types of network traffic and assign the desired priority to latency-sensitive traffic, such as voice and video. This helps improve the delivery quality of related applications such as VoIP, multimedia broadcasting, and video conferencing.
Build Multiple Network Groups with GS105E
These Gigabit Plus Switches can help divide extensive networks into smaller, more manageable groups and have resources dedicated to one or several groups rather than making the same resources open to all. This feature improves overall network performance, adds security to network traffic, and makes more efficient use of network resources.
Troubleshoot Cable Problems
All Gigabit Plus Switches come with a cable diagnostic feature that enables users to find their network cables' health status easily. If there are any problems, this feature helps quickly locate where the cabling fails, allowing connectivity issues to be fixed much faster, potentially saving technicians hours of troubleshooting. GS105E is a product that can prevent such problems.
IGMP Snooping for Optimized Multimedia Traffic Delivery
By listening in on the IGMP conversation between hosts and wireless routers, the Gigabit Plus switch can maintain a map of which links need which IP multicast streams. The Gigabit Plus switch, therefore, will be able to forward multicast traffic only to the links that have asked for them and cut multicast traffic from links that do not contain a multicast listener. Essentially, IGMP snooping helps optimize multicast performance at Layer 2 and is especially useful for bandwidth-intensive IP multicast applications such as IPTV.
