Build a Future-Proof Network with NETGEAR Insight Managed Switches
Solid performance with a non-blocking architecture
Comprehensive IPv6 management, QoS and ACL support, ensuring investment protection and a smooth migration to IPv6-based networking
PoE models support either 802.3af PoE (GC110P) or 802.3at PoE+ (GC108P, GC108PP, GC510P, GC510PP) on all 8 copper Gigabit Ethernet ports
Up to 195W PoE power, with the flexibility to add power-hungry devices such as 11ac and 11ax Wireless APs, VoIP voice and video phones, security/surveillance cameras including PTZ, and other IoT devices
NETGEAR's exclusive FlexPoE power is featured on GC108P (64W‡) and GC108PP (126W) models. Upgrade the PoE power budget on your GC108P at any time in the future to the same 126W of power as the GC108PP by purchasing the optional NETGEAR FlexPoE EPS130W power adapter.
Dedicated SFP ports on all models support long-distance uplinks or for can be used for redundancy and failover, improving reliability and availability for network virtualization
Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) support for more energy savings in the future when more EEE-compliant end devices come to market
Advanced QoS with IPv4/IPv6 ingress traffic filtering (ACLs) and prioritization (QoS)
Dynamic VLAN assignment for easy user authentication and location-independent access to network
IPV4 & IPV6 static routing allow for a simple way to provide segmentation of the network with internal routing through the switch – reserving the router for external traffic routing only, making the entire network more efficient.
Fully-integrated cloud-manageable devices
NETGEAR Insight Managed switches are fully-integrated, cloud-manageable devices, and therefore require no additional hardware (cloud keys, network portals, local servers, VPN or proxy appliances etc) to directly connect to the cloud and allow remote management. Just plug the switch into your network and the internet, use the Insight app to discover and add the device to your cloud managed network, and you’re now connected. No additional hardware, no software or server to setup, nothing; just connect and go.
Clean, sleek, silent (or whisper-quiet) designs
Insight Managed switches have a modern, clean design, with simple power/cloud connection LEDs to quickly see power and connection to the Insight cloud server. A full complement of LEDs on the rear (10-port models) and front (8-port models) includes power/cloud connection, PoE max (PoE models) and fan status (GC510PP), as well as per port connection/link status, and PoE power status (PoE models). GC108P, GC108PP, GC110, GC110P, and GC510P models are all fanless and silent, while GC510PP has a whisper-quiet fan. All models feature Kensington lock receptacles, and a 75mm VESA standard hole pattern on the bottom for wall-mount or other mounting options. The GC510P and GC510PP are also rack-mountable with the included rack-mount kit.
Great choice of PoE and PoE+ options including FlexPoE
As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR understands the importance of providing PoE options that can adapt to the business’s needs, whether in the hospitality, catering, education or retail domains. On PoE/PoE+ models, all 8 gigabit copper ports support PoE or PoE+. The GC110P (62W) supports PoE (802.3af), while the GC510P (134W) and GC510PP (195W) models support PoE+ (802.3at) for power-hungry devices of today and the future. The GC108P (64W) and GC108PP (126W) models feature NETGEAR's exclusive FlexPoE power with interchangable external power adapters, allowing you to updgrade your PoE budget as necessary in the future just by purchasing the NETGEAR FlexPoE EPS130W power adapter.
Dedicated SFP Fiber Uplinks
Dedicated SFP ports on GC110, GC110P, GC510P, and GC510PP provide fiber uplinks without sacrificing any downlink copper Gigabit Ethernet port, and across long distances. 2 SFP ports per model provide not only redundant uplinks, but can also build dual redundancy by a trunked uplink with link aggregation and failover.
Remote monitoring and management from the palm of your hand!
With the NETGEAR Insight management solution, you can setup, manage, and monitor all of your networks and multiple locations from anywhere, anytime and any device (smartphone or tablet with Insight mobile app or PC, Mac, or tablet with the Insight Cloud Portal*). Check network status, view dashboards for network health and activity, power cycle PoE-connected devices, and update firmware remotely. With the Insight Cloud service and the Insight mobile app or the Insight Cloud web portal*, you can update firmware on your Insight Managed devices directly from the cloud, from anywhere in the world!
Network-centric configuration and management
NETGEAR Insight Managed Switches and Wireless Access Points using NETGEAR Insight allow for cross-device automated configuration of VLANs, QoS, ACLs, and LAGs. Auto-join and configure (zero-touch privisioning) allows for additional devices added to the network to automatically inherit the network configuration parameters for seamless integration. Firmware updates are done through NETGEAR Insight directly to the device, from anywhere in the world!
Advanced L2+/L3 Lite Smart Switch Features
Insight Managed Smart Cloud switches support a full suite of advanced L2+/L3 Lite switching features for everything from a simple network to a highly complex one, and are designed to meet current and future needs of fully converged network. Advanced features include include VLANs, LAGs, QoS, ACLs, IPv6 support, IPv4 & IPv6 Static Routing, IGMP snooping, multicast, STP/RSTP/MSTP, rate limiting, advanced per port PoE controls, PoE scheduling, and more.
Build your network with future in mind
Ensure investment protection and a smooth migration to IPv6-based network without switch replacement with comprehensive IPv6 support for management, QoS, and ACLs. Facilitate fast receiver joins and leaves for multicast streams. Save cost and improve network efficiency by ensuring multicast traffic only reaches designated receivers without the need of an extra multicast router.
Dynamic VLAN Assignment
IP phones and PCs can authenticate on the same port but under different VLAN assignment policies. Users are free to move around and enjoy the same level of network access regardless of their physical location in the network.
Robust Security Features
Build a secured, converged network with all types of traffic by preventing external attacks and blocking malware while allowing secure access for authorized users.
Port-based security by locked MAC
ACL filtering to permit or deny traffic based on MAC and IP addresses
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 VLAN 802.1p-based prioritization
Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
Port-based egress rate limiting
Auto Voice and Auto Video
Automatic Voice over IP prioritization with Auto-VoIP simplifies most complex multi-vendor IP telephones deployments either based on protocols (SIP, H323 and SCCP) or on OUI bytes (default database and user based OUIs) in the phone source MAC address; providing the best class of service to VoIP streams (both data and signaling) over other ordinary traffic by classifying traffic, and enabling correct egress queue configuration. When deployed IP phones are LLDP-MED compliant, the Voice VLAN will use LLDP-MED to pass on the VLAN ID, 802.1P priority and DSCP values to the IP phones, accelerating convergent deployments.
Ensure no exchange of unicast, broadcast, or multicast traffic between the protected ports on the switch, therefore, improve the security of your converged network where your sensitive phone conversation can stay private and your surveillance video clips can be forwarded to their designated storage device without leakage or alteration
Port Trunking / Link Aggregation (LAG)
Build up bigger bandwidth to support aggregated uplink/downlink traffic. Automatically configures across Insight Managed devices.
Loop Prevention / Auto DoS Prevention
Detect and prevent accidental network loops and protect against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks.
Allows IT administrators to increase network security, better utilize network resources and conserve energy by scheduling or remotely controlling on/off of PoE ports.
Port Mirroring & Remote Cable Test
For better and quicker network diagnostics and troubleshooting.
