NETGEAR launches Smart Managed Pro Switches with PoE+ in India

These switches are useful within the small and medium-sized organizations

NETGEAR Inc. has introduced four new Gigabit switches with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+)and SFP ports for fiber uplinks.

These switches expand the second-generation family of Smart Managed Pro Switches purposely designed for converged networks where voice, video, data, and IoT are all carried on a single network platform, with maximum security.

Within small and medium-sized organizations — such as: hospitality, catering, education, and retail industries — there is growing deployment of VoIP phones, IP security cameras, video-over-IP endpoints, proximity sensors, LED lighting, secure access door locks, and other IoT devices.

The dense proximity of these devices requires network switches capable of supporting PoE so a network manager can add power-hungry devices to the network with a single wire for power AND connectivity. Increasing the power demands on PoE switches are 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless access points as well as pan-tilt-zoom HD surveillance cameras with features such as night vision and built-in motion tracking, which require PoE+ power (802.3at).

These four new Smart Managed Pro switches are also equipped with enhanced security features:

* Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Snooping.
* Dynamic Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) Inspection (DAI).

The combination of these two forms a protection against man-in-the-middle attacks when “attackers” use an IP address of a different valid client to secretly relay or alter the communication between devices in the network.
