Data Sheet
Enabling Small and Mid-sized Businesses to Effectively Manage
Bandwidth and Security
NETGEAR ProSafe® Advanced Smart Switches provide small and mid-sized companies with a
viable alternative to fully managed switches. This range of switches provide customers with all
the features typically found in fully managed switches, without adding complexity or additional costs.
Growing small and mid-sized companies rely on their network to provide the foundation
for essential business applications: mission-critical data applications, security, Voice over IP
(VoIP), video-conferencing and much more. They need full-featured network switches that can
accommodate and manage growth, support the full range of network applications and secure
the network without the overhead and complexity of fully managed switches. The GS724AT
and GS748AT ProSafe Gigabit Smart Switches with Advanced Features deliver the scalability,
flexibility, reliability, and performance growing small and medium-sized businesses need in an
affordable and easy-to-manage package.
Each ProSafe Gigabit Smart Switch with Advanced Features comes with either 24 or 48
10/100/1000 ports with four shared SFP ports, respectively, that provide high performance for
bandwidth-intensive applications like ERP and large file transfers. In addition, these switches
come with a complete suite of advanced features for more robust security, higher quality of
service and high availability. These switches are equipped with highly advanced features such
as access control lists (ACL), 802.1x port authentication, enhanced QoS, Auto-voice VLAN, rate
limiting and IGMP snooping among others to provide a small and medium-sized business with a
network that is geared for growth while providing scalability and reliability.
An intuitive, Web-browser interface provides simple yet comprehensive management, making it
a snap to fully realize the potential of the rich feature-set offered by these switches. Why buy fully
managed stackable network switches designed and priced for the enterprise? NETGEAR ProSafe
Gigabit Smart Switches with Advanced Features are designed for small and growing businesses.
Advanced Security
These switches provide advanced features that provide more robust security to the SMBs.
These include:
• 802.1x for authentication
• ACL filtering to permit or deny traffic based on MAC, IP and TCP/UDP addresses.

Advanced Quality
of Service (QoS)
Priority queuing ensures 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 Switches with Advanced Features provide an extensive
set of QoS features:
• 802.1p-based prioritization
• Layer 3-based (DSCP, TOS) prioritization
• Auto-Voice VLAN
• Rate-limiting
‘Smart’ Management Features
Manage all ProSafe Gigabit Smart Switches with Advanced Features from an easy-to-use Web
console that can be used to configure all features, as well as monitor and troubleshoot. These
switches also have SNMP (v1, 2c and 3) to collect and track data to monitor the network health,
as well as manage devices, and more easily enforce critical IT controls and policies. SNMP v2c is
most commonly deployed, as it provides better reporting capabilities than SNMP v1. Companies
interested in more robust security may opt for SNMP v3, which provides data encryption.
The ProSafe Gigabit Smart Switches with Advanced Features provide world-class reliability with a
NETGEAR Lifetime Warranty and optional ProSupport Maintenance Packages. These switches are
optimized for ProSafe Network Management Software (NMS100) and work with other SNMP-based
management software.
