No matter which model your business invests in, these Layer 2 smart switches bring world-class onboard features which are still easy to manage.  They bring comprehensive IPv6 support, including DSCP prioritization for QoS, and can easily support a network transitioning off IPv4.  World-class 802.1X, RADIUS, TACACS+, and HTTP/SSL security systems keep them safe, with support for Access Control Lists.  Many models feature advanced smart security programs which monitor for and attempt to block common attack types such as DOS attacks, packet storms, and man-in-the-middle attacks.

Deployment is kept simple, with units pre-configured for plug-and-play compatibility with many existing network types.  They come with onboard automatic VoIP device detection and VLAN assignment, and many auto-detect IP video systems as well.  Your administrator has a range of interface options, depending on their level of expertise, including a command line, SNMP, a web-based GUI, or the powerful NETGEAR Smart Center for deployment-wide administration.
