Smart switch

Netgear calls this model called a "smart switch" given the extensive possibilities that offer the GS116E. Network connections are auto-sensing, so the Netgear ProSafe GS116E automatically detects which type of network you use. This switch also has VLAN support QoS features based bandwidth management options, auto loop DoS prevention and detection.

Noise and housing

Because the Netgear ProSafe GS116E has no built-in fan that works completely silent. The compact design with metal casing ensure that the switch can be easily stored and can take a beating.

Sustainable and energy-efficient

Also, the Netgear ProSafe GS116E switch energy efficient thanks to the Green Ethernet technology: LAN ports that are not used will not be consumed. And when a short network cable is connected to the switch will bring the power down to consume as less power. The switch consumes as much as 60% less energy than switches that do not have this functionality.


Netgear provides all ProSafe switches a lifetime warranty so this also applies to Netgear ProSafe GS116E.
