The switches are equipped with security features such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol and Dynamic Address Resolution Protocol.
Netgear has introduced four new Gigabit switches with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+)and SFP ports for fibre uplinks. These switches expand the second-generation family of Pro switches purposely designed for converged networks where voice, video, data, and IoT are all carried on a single network platform, with maximum security.
These four new Smart Managed Pro switches are also equipped with security features. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Snooping – monitors and allows only authorised DHCP servers to respond to DHCP requests and to pass network data to clients. Dynamic Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) Inspection (DAI) – DAI inspects ARP packets on the Local Area Network (LAN) and uses the information in the DHCP snooping database on a switch to validate ARP packets and to protect against ARP spoofing/poisoning/cache poisoning. The combination of these two forms claims to form a protection against man-in-the-middle attacks when “attackers” use an IP address of a different valid client to secretly relay or alter the communication between devices in the network.
These new Smart Managed Pro switches will also provide advanced network tools like full line-rate Gigabit connectivity – for highly efficient and fast networking for bandwidth-hungry businesses and traffic priority setting - for optimised voice, data and video convergence.
The switches feature Multicast VLAN Registration (MVR) – that enables multicast traffic to be dedicated to a specific VLAN across a multicast domain so that receivers in other VLANs can join the sources in the dedicated VLAN and received multicast traffic. They also have full IPv6 Support to reduce network limitations imposed by IPv4 restrictions.
The new 24-port and 48-port NETGEAR Smart Managed Pro Switches support dense deployments of these modern high-power PoE+ devices. They offer powerful Layer 2 and Lite Layer 3 (static routing) features for IPv4 and IPv6 with enhanced performance and a focus on usability within SMB environments. All are equipped with 4 SFP Ports for fibre uplinks.
