NETGEAR GSS108EPP ProSafe Plus 8-Port Gigabit Click Switch with 4 PoE+
NETGEAR ProSAFE® Web Managed Click Switch Family Overview
The Web Managed Click Switches GSS108E (8-port), GSS108EPP (8-port with PoE+) and GSS116E (16-port), all feature an innovative and flexible mounting bracket, making it easy to mount them vertically or horizontally, flat or perpendicular, on a wall, under a desk, or strapped to a pole, allowing you to put your ports where and how you need them! Watch the video to the left for more information.
Innovative Mounting Bracket and Silent operation
Simple to use mounting bracket enables vertical or horizontal orientation of ports.
To install, just mount the bracket onto a wall, desk, table leg/pole or "Virtually Anywhere", and "Click" the switch into the bracket.
All Click Switches feature a fanless design, even the GSS108EPP PoE+ model, providing Power-Over-Ethernet to your PD devices yet allowing silent operation in conference rooms, open space offices, healthcare centers or any noise-sensitive environment.
Power-Over-Ethernet (PoE) option available for powering IP Security Cameras, VoIP phones, wireless access points, and other Ethernet-powered devices.
Four (4) PoE+ ports (up to 30W per port) allow for the connection of up to 4 PoE/PoE+ (802.3af and 802.3at) devices (up to a total PoE power budget of 47W), plus an additional 4 non-PoE devices. PoE ports may also be used for non-PoE devices.
This new member of the Click Switch family allows you to install PoE+ ports in any environment, and exactly where you need them.
The innovative mounting system gives you the flexibility to place the PoE+ Click Switch in locations where other switches cannot go.
Innovative "Virtually Anywhere" Mounting System
The innovative and unique mounting system gives you the flexibility to place NETGEAR ProSAFE Click Switches in locations where other switches cannot go. Whether it's directly on a wall, strapped to a pole, under the meeting table in a conference room or in a server closet, vertical or horizontal, flat or perpendicular, the Click Switch's unique mounting system allows you to control exactly how and where your ports and cables are deployed.
Web Managed Switch Networking Features
The Web Managed Click Switches can go beyond plug-and-play connectivity with additional ProSAFE Web Managed Switch networking features, allowing businesses to segment the network with VLANs or prioritize voice and video traffic with QoS. IGMP Snooping allows for optimized multimedia delivery and port trunking (GSS108EPP and GSS116E only) adds redundancy to uplinks and servers. Setup and configuration is simple using the web browser-based configuration GUI.
Gigabit Ethernet Ports
With up to 16 Gigabit Ethernet ports (depending on model), there are plenty of ports for all your high-speed connectivity needs, with backward compatibility to Fast Ethernet.
PoE+ Gigabit Ethernet Ports
The GSS108EPP also has four (4) PoE+ Gigabit Ethernet ports (802.3at) allowing for both power and connectivity across one wire.
"Virtually Anywhere" Click Mounting System
All Click Switches come with the "Virtually Anywhere" mounting system allowing you to put your ports exactly where you want them.
Comprehensive QoS Features
Advanced controls for optimized network performance and better delivery of mission-critical traffic such as voice and video. Ingress and egress rate limiting allows for bandwidth shaping for mitigating network resources constraints or for optimizing guest access bandwidth on the network.
Port-based or 802.1p-based prioritization
Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
Port-based ingress and egress rate limiting
For improved network efficiency on delivering multicast traffic. Save cost and improve network efficiency by ensuring multicast traffic only reaches designated receivers without the need of an extra multicast router.
Loop Detection / Auto DoS Prevention
Detect accidental network loops and protect against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks.
Port-based & 802.1Q-based VLANs
Segment network into smaller groups for more secure and efficient use of network resources.
PoE Per Port Controls (GSS108EPP Only)
Advanced per port PoE controls for remote power management of PoE connected devices (eg. Wireless AP, IP security cameras, LED lighting, door locks, IoT devices…) including:
Enable/disable PoE power per port
PoE power class configuration (802.3af, 802.3at)
User-defined PoE power limit per port (override detected Class)
Power cycle PoE per port
Port Trunking / Link Aggregation (LAG)
Build up bigger bandwidth to support aggregated uplink/downlink traffic. Static LAGs can be manually setup allowing up to 4Gbps connections to link aggregation capable devices such as ReadyNAS storage.
Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az)
For maximum power savings and reduced energy costs.
For better and quicker network diagnostics and troubleshooting.
Easily identify bad Ethernet cables.
