HARDWARE FEATURES

Fully-integrated cloud-manageable devices

NETGEAR Insight Managed switches are fully-integrated, cloud-manageable devices, and therefore require no additional hardware (cloud keys, network portals, local servers, VPN or proxy appliances etc) to directly connect to the cloud and allow remote management. Just plug the switch into your network and the internet, use the Insight app to discover and add the device to your cloud managed network, and you’re now connected. No additional hardware, no software or server to setup; nothing. Just connect and go.

Clean, sleek, silent (or whisper-quiet) designs

Insight Managed switches have a modern, clean design, with simple power and cloud connection LEDs on the front. A full complement of LEDs on the rear (port side) includes power, cloud connection, PoE max (PoE models) and fan status (GC510PP), as well as per port connection/link status, and PoE power status (PoE models). GC110, GC110P, and GC510P models are all fanless and silent, while GC510PP has a whisper-quiet fan. All models feature Kensington lock receptacles, and a 75mm VESA standard hole pattern on the bottom for wall-mount or other mounting options. The GC510P and GC510PP are also rack-mountable with the included rack-mount kit.

Great choice of PoE and PoE+ options

As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR understands the importance of providing PoE options that can adapt to the business’s needs, whether in the hospitality, catering, education or retail domains. On PoE/PoE+ models, all 8 gigabit copper ports support PoE or PoE+. The GC110P (62W) supports PoE (802.3af), while the GC510P (134W) and GC510PP (195W) models support PoE+ (802.3at) for power-hungry devices of today and the future.

Dedicated SFP Fiber Uplinks

Dedicated SFP ports provide fiber uplinks without sacrificing any downlink copper Gigabit Ethernet port, and across long distances. 2 SFP ports per model provide not only redundant uplinks, but can also build dual redundancy by a trunked uplink with link aggregation and failover.

SOFTWARE FEATURES

Remote monitoring and management from the palm of your hand!

With the NETGEAR Insight app, you can setup, manage, and monitor your networks from anywhere, anytime, from the palm of your hand! Check network status, view dashboards for network health and activity, power cycle devices PoE ports, and update firmware remotely. With the Insight Cloud service and the Insight app, you can update firmware on your Insight Managed devices directly from the cloud, from anywhere in the world!

Network-centric configuration and management

NETGEAR Insight Managed Switches and Wireless Access Points using the NETGEAR Insight app allow for cross-device automated configuration of VLANs, QoS, ACLs, LAGs, and PoE settings. Auto-join and configure (zero-touch privisioning) allows for additional devices added to the network to automatically inherit the network configuration parameters for seemless integration. Firmware updates are done through the app directly to the device, from anywhere in the world!

Advanced L2 Smart Switch Feature Set

Insight Managed Smart Cloud switches support a full suite of advanced L2 switching features for everything from a simple network to a highly complex one, and are designed to meet current and future needs of fully converged network. Advanced features include Advanced L2 switching capabilities include VLANs, LAGs, QoS, ACLs, IPv6 support, IGMP snooping, multicast, RSTP, rate limiting, advanced per port PoE controls and more.

Build your network with future in mind

Ensure investment protection and a smooth migration to IPv6-based network without switch replacement. Facilitate fast receiver joins and leaves for multicast streams. Save cost and improve network efficiency by ensuring multicast traffic only reaches designated receivers without the need of an extra multicast router.

Dynamic VLAN Assignment

IP phones and PCs can authenticate on the same port but under different VLAN assignment policies. Users are free to move around and enjoy the same level of network access regardless of their physical location in the network.

Comprehensive IPv6 Support for Management, QoS, and ACL

Build current network with future in mind. Ensure investment protection and a smooth migration to IPv6-based network without switch replacement.

Robust Security Features

Build a secured, converged network with all types of traffic by preventing external attacks and blocking malware while allowing secure access for authorized users.

  • 802.1x authentication§
  • DHCP Snooping
  • Port-based security by locked MAC
  • ACL filtering to permit or deny traffic based on MAC and IP addresses

Comprehensive QoS Features

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.

  • Port-based or VLAN 802.1p-based prioritization
  • Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
  • Port-based egress rate limiting

Auto Voice and Auto Video

Automatic Voice over IP prioritization with Auto-VoIP simplifies most complex multi-vendor IP telephones deployments either based on protocols (SIP, H323 and SCCP) or on OUI bytes (default database and user based OUIs) in the phone source MAC address; providing the best class of service to VoIP streams (both data and signaling) over other ordinary traffic by classifying traffic, and enabling correct egress queue configuration. When deployed IP phones are LLDP-MED compliant, the Voice VLAN will use LLDP-MED to pass on the VLAN ID, 802.1P priority and DSCP values to the IP phones, accelerating convergent deployments.

Protected Ports

Ensure no exchange of unicast, broadcast, or multicast traffic between the protected ports on the switch, therefore, improve the security of your converged network where your sensitive phone conversation can stay private and your surveillance video clips can be forwarded to their designated storage device without leakage or alteration

Port Trunking / Link Aggregation (LAG)

Build up bigger bandwidth to support aggregated uplink/downlink traffic. Automatically configures across Insight Managed devices.

Loop Prevention / Auto DoS Prevention

Detect and prevent accidental network loops and protect against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks.

PoE Timer/Scheduling

Allows IT administrators to increase network security, better utilize network resources and conserve energy by scheduling or remotely controlling on/off of PoE ports.

Port Mirroring

For better and quicker network diagnostics and troubleshooting.
