SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTGR), a leading provider of networking devices that power today’s smart home and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), has introduced the NETGEAR 48-port Gigabit Smart Managed Plus Switch (GS750E) which supports VLAN, QoS, LAG and IGMP management capabilities and  two SFP uplink ports. This new switch provides easy, reliable and affordable connectivity through its intuitive web interface to quickly expand your network for workstations/servers, Network Attached Storage (NAS), and PCs.

As part of the NETGEAR Smart Managed Plus Switch product family, the GS750E includes a full set of advanced L2 features such as traffic prioritization and link aggregation that are configurable through the web GUI. Easily deployed, it can be used as a desktop switch, mounted in a rack or even in small IT closet cabinets. With a fan-less design, it operates silently in noise-sensitive environments such as classrooms, conference rooms, doctor’s offices, or open-plan offices.

Today’s growing businesses demand and rely more on their network to carry out mission-critical business activities. Companies need network intelligence to separate and prioritize voice and video traffic from data to support applications such as VoIP phones and IP cameras on their Ethernet infrastructure. However, many small companies do not necessarily have the budget or advanced training to deal with complex managed switches. NETGEAR Smart Managed Plus Switches such as the GS750E meet this growing need by providing fundamental network features that will help optimize the performance of business networks.

“With our industry-first 48-Port Smart Managed Plus Switch, businesses that need more ports without sacrificing bandwidth or speed deploy 48 ports at once to avoid congestion from stacking lower port count switches,” said Richard Jonker, vice president of product line management for SMB products at NETGEAR.

“Our expertise in engineering high-performance networks derives from over two decades of working with SMBs,” Jonker added. “This history gives us an unequaled understanding of how to adapt networks to the unique needs of growing organizations, especially in small business, hospitality, catering, education and retail domains.”

The GS750E goes beyond basic network connectivity with enhanced controls to improve network performance, visibility into abnormal traffic behavior, cable test functionality and security against possible threats.

Key features of the GS750E Gigabit Smart Managed Plus Switch include:

  • Easy-to-use web interface for browser-based management
  • No noise (fan less design)
  • Maximum throughput at wire speed with 100Gbps non-blocking switching architecture
  • VLAN, QoS and port mirroring for segmenting and prioritizing voice, data and video traffic
  • Auto “denial-of-service” (DoS) prevention
  • Link Aggregation and Loop Prevention to add redundancy and increase your speed in your connections
  • 2 extra active SFP ports to be used as fiber uplinks
  • IGMP snooping support for multicast optimization
  • Rate limiting and priority queuing for better bandwidth allocation
  • Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) for maximum power savings
  • ProSAFE® Lifetime Hardware Warranty with Lifetime Next Business Day shipping for replacement and Lifetime Technical Support options
