Put Your PoE Ports Exactly Where You Need Them
The NETGEAR ProSAFE® GS408EPP Easy-Mount 8-port Gigabit Ethernet
PoE+ Web Managed Switch features a unique Virtually Anywhere™
mounting system that allows to install more PoE+ ports exactly where you
need them. The unique mounting system allows you to put the Easy-Mount
Switch up in the ceiling, strapped to a pole, or mounted under a desk or
tabletop, making it the perfect switch for deploying Wireless APs, Pan/Tilt/
Zoom and fixed IP Cameras, VoIP Phones, access-limited security door locks
or any other IoT PoE-powered devices.
Should you decide to rack mount the GS408EPP switch, you can save
space by installing two (2) switches in just a single 1U slot as all connections
(power and Ethernet) are located on the front side, allowing back-to-back
installation. As a member of the NETGEAR Web Managed (Plus) Switch
family, the GS408EPP also includes a full set of software features such as
traffic prioritization, VLANs, QoS, Port Trunking/Link Aggregation and PoE
power allocation. The GS408EPP also features Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE
802.3az) for maximum power savings and comes with the NETGEAR Lifetime
Limited Warranty and 24/7 support including lifetime chat.

Features and Benefits
Hardware Features
PoE/PoE+ support
Benefits
• All 8 ports are PoE+ for a total of 124W of power enabling powering of all types of PoE devices
• 802.3af and 802.3at Power-over-Ethernet (PoE/PoE+) for flexibility of deployment
• Single wire deployment of power and network connectivity to PoE+ devices
• Perfect switch for deploying Wireless AP, IP Cameras, VoIP Phones, Access-Controlled Security Door Locks or any
other IoT PoE-powered devices
Virtually AnywhereTM Mounting
• Deploy your PoE switch closest to your PoE devices
• Put your PoE ports exactly where you need them
• Orient the switch ports up, down, or out (belly-mount or spine-mount)
• Vertical, horizontal, flat or perpendicular mounting
Unique 2 per 1U Rack-Mountable
• Deploy more PoE+ devices in less rack space
• As both Ethernet ports and power connection are on the same side of the Easy-Mount switch, two GS408EPP
switches can fit back-to-back in a single 1U rack slot
Software Features
Benefits
Port-based and 802.1Q-based VLANs
Segment network into smaller groups for more secure and efficient use of network resources.
Comprehensive QoS features:
• Port-based or 802.1p-based
prioritization
• Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
• Port-based ingress and egress
rate limiting
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.
IGMP Snooping
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.
Port trunking/Link Aggregation
Build up bigger bandwidth to support aggregated uplink/downlink traffic or to provide redundant link(s) using Static
Manual LAGs.
Advanced per-port PoE Controls
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...)
Voice VLAN
The feature enables auto assignment of voice traffic (based on OUI) to a special VLAN (AKA Voice VLAN), allowing the
assignment of special QoS parameters to that traffic, and tagging the port automatically, giving it high priority services.
Voice VLAN must be enabled on a per port basis.
Loop detection and auto DoS prevention
Detect accidental network loops and protect against DoS attacks.
Port Mirroring
For better and quicker network diagnostics and troubleshooting.
Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az)
For maximum power savings and reduced energy costs.
Cable Test
Easily identify bad Ethernet cables.
