More Capabilities beyond Plug-and-play ConnectivityToday's growing businesses demand and rely more on their network to carry out mission-critical business activities. Companies are putting more network tra c and applications on their Ethernet infrastructure. For example, the increasing deployments of VoIP phones and IP cameras require more than simple plug-and-play connectivity. It needs the network intelligence to separate the voice and video tra c from data, and prioritize them accordingly. Additionally, Internet-based applications such as Hotmail and Google Calendaring have made keeping the network up a business-critical need. However, companies do not necessarily have more money or advanced training to deal with complex managed switches. NETGEAR's ProSAFE Plus Switches meet this growing need by providing fundamental network features that will help optimize the performance of business networks. ProSAFE Plus Switches also o er tra c monitoring for users to observe tra c behavior. If there are connectivity issues, these switches can identify and even locate connection problems via cable diagnostic test. To optimize tra c through the switches, ProSAFE Plus Switches o er both port and tag-based prioritization to keep latency-sensitive tra c moving ahead of less critical packets. Also, ProSAFE Plus Switches o er port and 802.1Q-based VLAN as a means of improving security and network performance. ProSAFE Plus Switches are an upgrade from the plug-and-play Unmanaged Switch, delivering great value for empowering your network, delivering great value to the end user.
