NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Switches fill the gap between unmanaged and fully managed switches. ProSafe Smart Switches are 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, FS726TP, provides power and data over the same Cat-5 UTP cable to enable affordable PoE solutions for mid-sized businesses. Using built-in standards based IEEE 802.3af PoE, the FS726TP offers web-based management including prioritization and SNMP making it ideal for deploying access points, VoIP phones and IP-based surveillance cameras. Two built-in Gigabit ports provides fast connections to servers or a Gigabit-speed backbone. With the utility of 24 10/100 Mbps ports, two copper 10/100/1000 ports and two hot-swappable Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) GBIC slots 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 8.8Gbps switching capacity for maximum data throughput. All 26 RJ-45 ports automatically negotiate to the highest speed and support Auto Uplink technology to make the right link. In addition, an intuitive, Web-browser interface offers the simple Smart Switch management, making it a snap to monitor switch performance, configure ports, even set up port trunks, VLANs, and traffic prioritization. Alternatively, use SNMP-based software to manage your Smart Switch. Shipped ready for use straight out of the box, it delivers switching that's easy to set up and use. NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Switches are ideal for adding basic management to your unmanaged networks and extending your managed networks.
