The 8-port Gigabit PoE ProSafe Smart Switch lets business add VoIP, video, and wireless LAN services

"Thanks to a $390 MSRP and a list of enterprise-class features, Netgear's new Netgear ProSafe 8-port Gigabit PoE Smart Switch (GS110TP) means that SMBs can put their office LANs to work carrying multimedia traffic with its new performance requirements alongside regular data traffic, just like in large enterprises -- but affordably in terms of purchase price and IT time and skill set," writes Daniel Dern on InformationWeek.

" 'We see more small businesses using VoIP, IP video conferencing and IP video surveillance, and wireless Access Points for office Wi-Fi,' says Maggie Wu, product line manager for business switching, Netgear. Network switches connect up the network segments -- Ethernet cabling -- of an office network. 'To take advantage of new multimedia applications,' says Wu, 'SMBs need more intelligent switches compared to traditional unmanaged network switches'," Dern writes.
