ProSafe® 24-port 10/100 L2 Managed Switch with 2 Combo Gigabit Ethernet Ports
Data Sheet
“Single IP Address Management” Feature Enables Easy Network Management
NETGEAR’s low-cost, Fast Ethernet switches deliver maximum throughput and flexibility where
you need it — to high-density workgroups at the edge of the network, or in the backbone of
small networks. The ProSafe FSM726E is managed 24-port switches with auto-sensing 10/100
ports and two 10/100/1000 ports. This enables fiber connectivity through two hot-swappable
small form-factor pluggable (SFP) Gigabit interfaces. The non-blocking design of the switches
delivers simultaneous, full wire-speed, low-latency throughput to all ports. In addition, their 1U
rack-mount form factor uses less rack space and provides a lower per-port cost than comparable
Fast Ethernet switches.
Multiple NETGEAR fully managed switches can be managed via a single IP address. Robust
security features include IEEE 802.1x port-based authentication and access control lists (ACL),
ensuring that only authorized users can access your network. Secure management of the
switches is available through Secure Sockets Layer (SSLv3) for the Web GUI and Secure Shell
(SSH) for command-line sessions. Additionally, switches can be securely managed via SNMPv3
with NETGEAR’s ProSafe Network Management Software NMS100. For workgroup deployments
in cost-sensitive organizations that require Layer 2 switching, and additional Gigabit capability,
NETGEAR’s ProSafe 10/100 Layer 2 Switches deliver the ideal access-edge solution.
In desktop switching environments, wire-speed performance with full QoS control for all 10/100
interfaces is critical. The 2 Gigabit Ethernet combo interfaces provide unprecedented flexibility,
attaching bandwidth-thirsty file servers, or aggregating critical data to the core of your network.
Simplify and reduce IT staff workload and mean time to repair with intuitive, GUI-based device
configuration, and an industry-standard command-line interface (CLI). Additionally, up to 24
switches can be managed via a single IP address using the Web GUI interface.
Outstanding Value
With their high-value price point, flexible design, and reduced maintenance requirements,
NETGEAR’s ProSafe 10/100 Layer 2 Switch solutions yield a high return on investment, and
are ideal for delivering highly reliable, converged voice, video, and data services over a single
network infrastructure.
