ProSafe® 8-port Gigabit Smart Switch
GS108Tv2
Data Sheet
Power up Your Small Network with Gigabit Speeds
NETGEAR’s family of Prosafe® Gigabit Smart Switches is purposely designed for SMB customers
with high performance, SMB-oriented features and easy management. With 8 10/100/1000
Mbps ports, each capable of powering 2000 Mbps of data throughput in full-duplex mode
per port, the GS108T is an ideal solution for extending network connections into conference
room, labs, lobbies and department workgroups. It enables SMB networks to support Voice
over IP (VoIP), streaming media, multicasting, security, and many other bandwidth-intensive
applications like ERP and large file transfers. The GS108T comes with a comprehensive set of
features, such as access control lists (ACL), 802.1x port authentication, enhanced QoS, rate
limiting and IGMP snooping among others to provide a small or medium-sized business with a
network that is geared for growth while ensuring performance and reliability.
In addition, the GS108T supports IEEE 802.3af standard for Power over Ethernet (PoE). It can
obtain its power from either a PoE source or from an external AC power adapter. This gives an
SMB flexibility when installing the switch in places where a power outlet is not present.
The GS108T comes with an intuitive, Web-browser interface which offer simple Smart Switch
management, making it a snap to monitor switch performance, configure ports, even set up
port trunks, VLANs, and traffic prioritization. Alternatively, you can use SNMP-based software
to manage your Smart Switch. NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Switches are ideal for adding basic
management to your unmanaged networks or extending your managed networks.
Intelligent
The GS108T provides cost-efficient solutions that enable SMB customers to better manage their
network. Included are performance monitoring, port configuration, VLAN for traffic control, link
aggregation for increased bandwidth, IGMP snooping for facilitating multicast applications, and
Class of Service (CoS) for traffic prioritization.
Ideal Advanced Security
These Gigabit Smart Switches have advanced features that provide more robust security to
SMBs. These include:
• 802.1x for authentication
• ACL filtering to permit or deny traffic based on MAC or IP addresses
Advanced Quality of Service
Priority queuing ensures that high-priority traffic gets delivered efficiently, even during
congestion from high-traffic bursts. Companies implementing network telephony or video
conferencing, for example, need to be able to prioritize such voice and video traffic and other
real-time applications over less latency-sensitive traffic to ensure reliability and quality. The
ability to prioritize traffic ensures quality of latency-sensitive services and applications despite
increasing traffic loads. The ProSafe Gigabit Smart Switch provides an extensive set of QoS
features:
• 802.1p-based prioritization
• Layer 3-based prioritization
• Rate limiting
